The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football: Beating the Spread Week 3

College Football: Beating the Spread Week 3

Week 3 beating the spread!
Publish Date: 09/15/2021
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis
STATE COLLEGE, PA - SEPTEMBER 11: Devyn Ford #28 of the Penn State Nittany Lions carries the ball against the Ball State Cardinals during the second half at Beaver Stadium on September 11, 2021 in State College, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images)

So far, my picks have been hit and miss, but I am above .500 at 8-7, which means I have won a little bit of money, and I am excited about this week’s slate of games.

Nebraska at No. 3 Oklahoma (-22.5) (12 p.m., FOX)

This rivalry was up there with the best of them; the boy has times changed. Nebraska looked helpless in week 1 against a bad Illinois team, and even with this being a rivalry game, I think Oklahoma covers. Pick Oklahoma +22.5

No. 8 Cincinnati (-3) at Indiana (12 p.m., ESPN)

This went from being a possible matchup between the top 15 teams to a game where the Bearcats are favored on the road. I don’t think Indiana was as bad as they looked in week 1, but they are nowhere near as good as people expected. On the other hand, Cincinnati is a legitimate threat to make the College playoffs and will cover the spread here. Pick Cincinnati -3

No. 15 Virginia Tech at West Virginia (-2.5) (12 p.m., FS1)

I have a hard time understanding how the Hokies are the underdog in this game. With that being said, I like the Hokies and the points here. Pick Virginia Tech +2.5

Michigan State at No. 24 Miami (-6) (12 p.m., ABC) 

Michigan State looked strong in a blowout win over Northwestern. The Canes, on the other hand, were blown out by Alabama, which most people do. The concerning game was the close win last weekend over Appalachian State. Pick Michigan State +6

Northern Illinois at No. 25 Michigan (-27.5) (12 p.m., BTN)

Michigan struggles to throw the ball on offense but running the ball is not an issue. I think the point spread is a little wide here. But I am still taking Michigan. Pick Michigan -27.5

Purdue at No. 12 Notre Dame (-7.5) (2:30 p.m., NBC)

The Irish have struggled but won their first two games, while Purdue has beaten two bottom feeders. Notre Dame wins this game by double-digits. Pick Notre Dame -7.5

No. 1 Alabama (-15) at No. 11 Florida (3:30 p.m., CBS)

Alabama has been impressive but hasn’t really beaten or even played a good team yet. The Gators have a lot to prove and are playing at home in the Swamp. Pick Florida +15

Georgia Tech at No. 6 Clemson (-28.5) (3:30 p.m., ABC) 

Last year it was 73-7; it will be nowhere near as bad this year. Pick Georgia Tech +28.5

Tulsa at No. 9 Ohio State (-26.5) (3:30 p.m., FS1) 

The Buckeyes struggled in week 1 against Minnesota and were beaten at home last week by Oregon.Pick Tulsa +26.5

No. 22 Auburn at No. 10 Penn State (-5.5) (7:30 p.m. ABC) 

This is a great matchup, but I think Penn State’s passing game and defense will be the difference. Pick Penn State -5

No. 19 Arizona State (-2) at No. 23 BYU (10:15 p.m., ESPN) 

Can BYU do it again? Yes, they can, especially if QB Jaren Hall can duplicate his performance from last weekend. But in the end, Arizona State’s ability to run the ball wins a close game. Pick Arizona State-2

Fresno State at No. 13 UCLA (-11.5) (10:45 p.m., Pac-12 Network)

This should be an entertaining high scoring affair, but Fresno State is too good to give over 11 points in this game. Pick Fresno State +11.5
