5 expert tips for this week

We’re breaking down our best college football week 3 bets from around the country as we try to stay hot with our expert picks for you to secure.

Sometimes when it comes to a weird, wild week in college football, bettors can drown in chaos and get carried away. But after successfully navigating the upset week 2, it’s headed for one sketchy week 3 slate across the country to try and get the momentum moving quickly.

Thanks to Alabama putting a goal-line stop at the end of the first quarter, we finished Week 2 with a 3-1-1 record with our picks, which brought our overall record (remember we skipped Week 1) to 3-4 -1 over the season. But outside of Week 0 we’re in a great place and it seems like we’re getting a feel for some of these teams.

With that in mind, let’s tackle our best bets in Week 3 of college football while trying not to get burned out by some tricky games on the schedule.

College Football Week 3 Best Bets: Against Spread Picks, Totals and More

Minnesota -28 (-110) vs. Colorado

It’s time we accepted that Colorado is one of the worst teams in college football this season despite being a Power 5 team. A 25-point loss to TCU and then a 31-point loss to the Air Force is the best evidence that this is the case.

Now they’re taking to the streets to take on a Minnesota team that looks extremely strong defensively and has regained some of the offensive spark they’ve lost over the past few seasons. Four touchdowns worries me a bit, but PJ Fleck isn’t one to take his foot off the gas, and the Golden Gophers are the far superior team in this duel, even at home.

SMU vs. Maryland – Over 73.0 (-110)

If you want some thrills on your Saturday, be sure to cheer for the terps and the mustangs on the evening blackboard. Both offenses are averaging over 43.5 points per game in the first two weeks this season with consistently legitimate weapons. More importantly, however, these defenses have been untested this season and have legitimate concerns to top that high total. I think we’re seeing a lot of that at the pace that both Maryland and SMU are playing and the points keep flowing steadily for 60 minutes.

Michigan 1H -30.5 (-110) vs UConn

JJ McCarthy earned the starting spot for Michigan, and we saw what that can mean offensively against Hawaii last week when they lit Hawaii with effortless ball movement and a 42-0 lead. I don’t like the whole game here as Jim Harbaugh played backup backups in the second half last week but UConn’s defense shouldn’t offer any resistance when the starters are out there which gives me a lot of confidence in this number.

Georgia 1H -14.5 (-110) vs. South Carolina

Speaking of teams having what it takes to pull out a big lead and then hit the cruise control in the second half, that’s the feel of Georgia in the SEC opener in South Carolina. Yes, the Gamecocks now have Spencer Rattler. But they’re lacking in the trenches on either side of the ball, which is probably the worst place to fight the defending champions. I see the Dawgs taking a three or four touchdown lead in the first half before Kirby Smart takes his foot off the gas.

Nevada vs. Iowa – Under 39.5 (-110)

Part of me wants to take Nevada to +23 this game, considering an Iowa team that has two offensive touchdowns under their belt in two weeks shouldn’t be favored that much. The problem with this, however, is that the Wolf Pack are up against the Hawkeyes defense, which has been predictably great, while Nevada’s offense has plenty to worry about even if they score against an inferior competition. I’m confident both teams will struggle to find the end zone, so I’m aiming for an admittedly super-low total in this matchup.
