College Football Picks and Point Spreads for Week 3

This week in college football starts off on Thursday night with an SEC West showdown and then national title contenders Boise State playing the following night.

This week has many teams playing in their first road games of the season and teams are now starting to get into the tough part of their schedule.  There are some very intriguing matchups this weekend that provide the opportunity to place great bets on.

Here are my top picks for this weekend’s set of college football games.

 Oklahoma-Florida State

College Football Picks and Betting Lines for Week 1

SEPTEMBER 15

#3 LSU v. #25 Mississippi State

  • LSU-Mississippi State spread: LSU -3.5
  • LSU-Mississippi State over/under: 48.5

Mississippi State lost a heartbreaker last weekend and will look to rebound at home this weekend against LSU and their stingy defense.  The Tigers have arguably the best defense in college football while the Bulldogs are averaging nearly 600 yards of total offense.  In this game lay the points as the LSU defense will be too much for the Mississippi State offense to handle.

SEPTEMBER 16

#4 Boise State v. Toledo

  • Boise State-Toledo spread: Boise State -20
  • Boise State-Toledo over/under: 58.5

Boise State had a very impressive win in week one against Georgia and Toledo almost upset Ohio State last week which makes this a very good matchup.  Many people are taking Toledo with the points on this one because they are at home and the way they performed last week.  Toledo did play well last week but Boise State’s offense is just too strong for Toledo to stop.  The Broncos did beat them by 43-points last season and in this game I am going to lay the points.

Iowa State v. Connecticut

  • Iowa State-Connecticut spread: Connecticut -4
  • Iowa State-Connecticut over/under: 44.5

Iowa State is coming off an impressive victory over their in-state rival Iowa last weekend and look to continue playing well on offense.  New Starting QB Steele Jantz was the Big 12 offensive player of the week and proved that he has what it takes to be a very productive QB.  I look for Iowa State to win this game and head into Big 12 conference play undefeated.

SEPTEMBER 17

#15 Michigan State v. Notre Dame

  • Michigan State-Notre Dame spread: Notre Dame  -4.5
  • Michigan State-Notre Dame over/under: 51

Notre Dame has started the season 0-2 and completely melted down in their first two games.  Michigan State has started 2-0 but has not played any tough teams this season.  This is Michigan State’s first game against a decent opponent and Notre Dame will come out motivated to avoid going 0-3 for the season.  I think this will be a high scoring game and Notre Dame will get the Win.  In this game I am going to lay the points with Notre Dame and take the over.

#16 Florida v. Tennessee

  • Florida- Tennessee spread: Florida -9.5
  • Florida- Tennessee over/under: 50.5

Tennessee has not beaten their SEC rival in 7 years and this might be the season they get it done.  Tennessee had a very impressive victory over Cincinnati last weekend and will be taking that momentum into the swamp.  Even if the Vols don’t win they should be able to keep it close and that is why I am going to take them with the points.

#17 Ohio State v. Miami, FL

  • Ohio State-Miami, FL spread: Miami -3
  • Ohio State-Miami, FL over/under 48

Miami is coming off a week one loss on the road to Maryland and look to get their first victory at home on Saturday night.  Ohio State barely got past Toledo last week at home and this will be their first road game of the season.  I look for this to be a close game but I think Ohio State’s defense will get the best of Jacory Harris and the Buckeyes will get the win.

#1 Oklahoma v. #5 Florida State

  • Oklahoma-Florida State spread: Oklahoma -3
  • Oklahoma-Florida State over/under: 55

It might be early in the season but this game has national championship implications and the winner will be able to control their own destiny.   Last season the Sooners dominated the Seminoles in Norman winning by a score of 47-17.  Florida State will be at home for this one and this game should be a closer than last season’s blowout.  In this game Oklahoma’s offense will be too much for Florida State and that is why I am going to lay the points.
