We are not going to lie, the opening couple of weeks of the college football season have been more than a little trying for those of us in the business of handicapping games. The upsets have been coming thick and fast and we hope that you have all managed to weather the storm and stay afloat through the opening couple of weeks. Instead of looking back, we are going to look ahead to Week 3 of the season to see of we can come up with some winning tickets. We are focusing on parlays here and have 3 options for you, which you can mix and match or add to your own College Football Betting picks. Let’s get to it.
NCAAF Parlay Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Week 3 Analysis
NCAAF Week 3 SU Parlay – Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State
We get this pick rolling with an underdog, with Michigan State heading out on the road to face the Washington Huskies. Given how things have gone this season, the underdog is not a bad idea, and with the Spartans winning 8 of their last 10, I like them here.
It has been an unmitigated disaster for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the early going. A loss to Ohio State was somewhat expected but losing to Marshall was something that no one saw coming. I think they bounce back at home to Cal.
One of the best games on the Week 3 schedule sees the Penn State Nittany Lions head to Auburn to face the Tigers in what is a very difficult trip. Both teams have looked good early on, but I am taking Penn State for the road win.
NCAAF Week 3 ATS Parlay – Buffalo (+14), Ole Miss (-17), USF (+24 ½)
I have to admit that we are taking a bit of a chance with our first pick on this ticket, as the Buffalo Bulls definitely look to be heading for a loss this weekend to Coastal Carolina. The reason I am going this route is because the Chanticleers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 as a favorite.
The Ole Miss offense always looks ready to roll and put up big numbers under Lane Kiffin. I think we are looking at more of that this weekend against Georgia Tech, who have failed to cover in their opening 2 games of the season.
The Florida Gators will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Kentucky last week, which was all the more jarring after beating Utah in Week 1. They will get that win over USF, but I don’t think they cover.
NCAAF Week 3 O/U Parlay – Charlotte U60, LSU U53 ½, UCLA O59 ½
While certainly not one of the more glamorous games on the Week 2 schedule, I think the matchup between Charlotte and Georgia State is in play for the OVER. 5 of the last 6 meetings between these teams has gone that route.
LSU are 1-1 in the season and really need a win against the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday, which I think could lead to this one being very tight indeed. 4 of the last 5 that the Bulldogs have played in September have gone UNDER.
The UCLA Bruins should have themselves a comfortable game against South Alabama this weekend as they look to improve to 2-0. A win seems like a definite, but I also like the OVER, with 7 of the last 9 the Bruins have played versus a team with a winning record going that way.
