Top Five NCAA Football Games to Must Bet On Week 3 of the 2022-23 Season
2022 NCAA Football Week 3
- Friday, Sep. 16 – Saturday, Sep. 17
Oklahoma Sooners -10.5 at Nebraska Cornhuskers | Saturday, Sep. 17
New head coach Brett Venables has the Sooners playing like a College Football Playoff squad. After a couple of games, Oklahoma is 2-0 both ATS and against the spread.
The Sooners blasted UTEP and Kent State. So one would think that taking on Nebraska would be more of a challenge. But the Cornhuskers fired Scott Frost, their head coach, just this week.
Nebraska is not a good football team. The Huskers have already lost 2 games. In both games, against Northwestern and Georgia Southern, oddsmakers favored Nebraska to win. Oklahoma rolls to an SU and ATS victory.
NCAAF Week 3 Pick: Nebraska Cornhuskers
BYU Cougars +3.5 at Oregon Ducks | Saturday, Sep. 17
After losing by 46 points to Georgia in their first game, the Ducks could have given up. But instead, Oregon came back in week 2 and blasted Eastern Washington 70 to 14.
The Ducks will play BYU tough. BYU won’t be intimidated after beating Baylor last Saturday. The Cougars are the overall better team. Taking the points makes sense.
NCAAF Week 3 Pick: BYU Cougars
Kansas Jayhawks +10.5 at Houston Cougars | Saturday, Sep. 17
Houston had every chance to beat Texas Tech. But the Red Raiders outlasted the Cougars in a 33-30 overtime victory.
The Cougs head back to Houston hoping to get back on the winning track. It won’t be easy for the home team to grab the win, much less cover the spread.
The Kansas Jayhawks are much better in 2022 than they have been in, well, the last ten seasons. The Jayhawks are 2-0 and head into this off a 55-42 win against West Virginia. Kansas’ offense is unstoppable and Houston has to be tired after back-to-back overtime games.
NCAAF Week 3 Pick: Kansas Jayhawks +10.5
Miami Hurricanes +5.5 at Texas A&M Aggies | Saturday, Sep. 17
After losing to Appalachian State in week 2, the Aggies have a choice. Either they step it up and get over the loss or they bury their heads and give up on the season.
Jimbo Fisher won’t let his team wallow in misery. But even if Texas A&M plays well, they’re not 6 points better than Miami. The Miami Hurricanes are 2-0, boast one of the better defenses in the nation, and averages 50 points and over 240 rushing yards per game. Miami and the points makes sense.
NCAAF Week 3 Pick: Miami Hurricanes +5.5
Fresno State Bulldogs at USC Trojans -12.5 | Saturday, Sep. 17
The Bulldogs defense allowed the Beavers to drop 36. USC averages 53.5 per and this is a Trojans home game. USC should easily beat the overlay spread.
