Week 0 is attempting to keep up in the college football expansion arms race. And it’s doing so by offering 11 FBS games to bet on in 2022.

Unofficially established in 2002 and, after a nearly 15-year hiatus, reinvented in recent years, Week 0 has evolved from a cute novelty for football-starved fans into a robust schedule that features 11 games and a variety of college football betting opportunities in 2022.

How To Bet on Week 0 College Football Odds

College football futures have been available at the online sportsbook for months – since Georgia’s win over Alabama in the national championship officially launched the offseason – but Week 0 is the first opportunity to bet on spreads, over/under totals, parlays, and more.

To view updated odds, visit the BetMGM sportsbook, and navigate to college football odds.

You can see all available matchups, including Northwestern vs. Nebraska, scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff in Dublin, Ireland. 

You could, for example, bet $50 on Northwestern to cover the spread, which would return $95.45 (including stake) if the Wildcats win or lose by, as of July 1, fewer than 12 points.

You could also bet on the over/under total in the Wyoming-Illinois game or build a spread parlay with FAU (-7 vs. Charlotte), North Texas (-1 at UTEP), and Utah State (-27.5 vs. UConn) that would return $69.57 (including stake) on a $10 bet.
