College Capper: Week 2 Picks

Chris' Picks

A second straight winning week to open the year has me feeling decent. Week 2 is usually a classic overreaction week, so let's see if we can avoid those pitfalls. Lots of road teams for me, which could be a bit risky given full stands, but I'm banking on being able to be ahead of some lines
