2018 – Week 1 Picks

Here we are again.  Another season for the "expert" picks each week.  You know the drill by now.  Picks will given with scores so we can gauge their ability to pick straight up and against the spread (ATS).  So much optimism and anticipation in the air.  The college football season is finally upon us!

There are some good match ups this week.  The one with the earliest Playoff implications is Washington-Auburn in Atlanta.  Washington is looking to reclaim the PAC 12 crown with 8th year quarterback Jake Browning.  Auburn is trying to show that they can actually perform when expectations are high rather than flying under the radar.  Michigan and Notre Dame rekindle their on again-off again rivalry.  Boise State sets off to prove they are this year's top Group of 5 team.  Wisconsin will try to release the Big 10 east stranglehold on conference title game wins.  Can the defending national champions UCF start their title defense with a win!

Onto the start of the season of educated guesses!
