Youmans: Four Week 2 CFB bets I like

USATSI_15050124

LAS VEGAS -- Steve Sarkisian’s coaching debut at Texas was a big hit. He picked a starting quarterback who passed the eye test and, despite warnings that his team was on upset alert, Sarkisian never had to sweat.

Sharp money showed last week against the Longhorns, who closed as single-digit home favorites while facing a Louisiana team that returned 20 starters. Texas appeared fully focused and put a 20-point beating on the Ragin’ Cajuns.

Are the Longhorns legit or could their rave reviews be an overreaction? The betting public is suddenly riding the bandwagon this week and piling on Texas laying a touchdown at Arkansas. Hudson Card, who passed for 224 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in his first career start, will find his first road start to be more challenging.

In coach Sam Pittman’s first year, the Razorbacks upset Mississippi and Mississippi State and played SEC heavyweights Auburn, LSU and Texas A&M to the wire. Arkansas opened Pittman’s second season by pulling off an unlikely cover of a 20.5-point spread, outscoring Rice 21-0 in the fourth quarter of a 38-17 win.
