Week 3 College Football (Against the Spread) Picks

These are in order from my most confident pick to least confident. Lines are based on the current spreads at the Caesars Sportsbook.

UCLA (-15.5) vs. South Alabama- 2:00: The Bruins have been steamrolling lesser opponents this season.
Vandy (+2.5) at Northern Illinois- 3:30: The Dores struggled last week against the Deacs but I still think they are the more talented team in this one.
Georgia State (-19.0) vs. Charlotte- 7:00– The 49ers are really, really bad, and the Panthers will be looking to make a statement at home after two close losses to Power 5 squads.
Liberty (+16.5) at Wake Forest- 5:00: A tricky trap game for the Deacs
Kansas State (-14.0) vs. Tulane- 3:00: The Wildcats pulverized Missouri on the ground last week which doesn’t bode well for Tulane who gave up 200 yards rushing to a terrible UMass team in week 1.
Texas State (+30.0) at Baylor- 12:00: The Bears will win but I simply don’t think they are good enough this year to beat a functional Group of Five squad by more than 30.
Western Kentucky (+6.5) at Indiana- 12:00: I think this will be a real close game that will be decided in the final minutes
Washington State (-16.5) vs. Colorado State- 5:00: I know the Cougars’ win last weekend over Wisconsin was fluky, but the Rams are absolutely atrocious.
Texas Tech (+10.0) at NC State- 7:00: This should be a close game between two teams that can light up the scoreboard
Ole Miss (-16.5) at Georgia Tech- 3:30: The Rebs know how to score points, and I think the Yellow Jackets are a lost cause this season under their assuredly lame duck head coach.

Last Week’s Record: 4-6, Overall Season Record: 7-13 (better than week 1 but still looking for my first .500 or better weekend this year)
