What a difference a week makes!
After a dismal start to our college football betting season, we bounced back with a 4-3 record against the spread in Week 2.
We’ve still got some work to do before we’re profitable, but it’s a long season, and gambling is all about the grind. Heading into Week 3, we’ve got a good mix of heavy favorites and feisty underdogs to celebrate the true kickoff of SEC conference play.
Take a look below for our best bets of Week 3 of the college football season.
LAST WEEK: 4-3
Alabama (-21.5) over Ole Miss
Alabama has covered two big spreads to open the year, giving us winners each time. We’re going to keep riding the trend as they open SEC play against Mississippi. Ole Miss can score but haven’t played a real defense yet this year, and Alabama’s offense might be better this year with Tua Tagovailoa running the show than their past two teams that made the national championship.
Boise State (+2.5) over Oklahoma State
This should be a shootout, with both the Broncos and Cowboys capable of putting up massive point totals. I think Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien gives them the edge. Rypien is a fourth-year starting senior and is surrounded by possibly the most talented group of receivers he’s had. I like the senior to keep his composure when the pressure is on to score on every drive.
TCU (+12.5) over Ohio State
Ohio State has been running through opponents despite the absence of head coach Urban Meyer, but this is too many points to lay against a talented TCU team. The Horned Frogs have proven their ability to win big games early in the year, taking down No. 6 Oklahoma State on the road last season. The Buckeyes present a bigger challenge, but TCU should be able to put up enough points to land within the number.
