We name our top tips for this weekend’s NCAAF schedule

After a soft restart last weekend, the NCAAF 2023 campaign gets fully underway this weekend.

There is plenty of footballing action for fans to look forward to, with some tasty matchups on the agenda in Week 1.

Our in-house tipster has looked through the schedule, picking out a couple of selections that could be worth backing this weekend.

Here are the NCAAF Best Bets for Week 1.


After being appointed the head coach of Colorado, there is a lot of hype surrounding Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes this season.

However, that level of noise could become a deafening silence in Week 1 – as they take on National Championship runners-up TCU in Texas.

While the Horned Frogs have lost some of their starters, their offense still looks threatening, and they have managed to keep the majority of their defense together.

The TCU offense should continue to tick over this year, and they should be able to cruise to success over a new-look Buffaloes roster.

Don’t get me wrong, there are good times coming in Colorado – just not yet.

TIP: TCU -20.5 (-115, FanDuel)


Clemson get their 2023 campaign underway with a trip to Durham on Monday night, as they face the Duke Blue Devils.

While a lot of pundits will be expecting the Tigers to get their season started comfortably here, there is a lot to like about Duke.

They ‘quietly’ claimed a nine-win season last time out and overcame UCF in the Military Bowl in Maryland.

The Blue Devils have kept the majority of their roster together and they did not record a single double-digit loss in 2022.

That gives them a chance of beating the spread here, with the bookmakers putting them down as 12-and-a-half point underdogs.

TIP: Duke +12.5 (-110, FanDuel)
