It is week 3 of college football. We now have some glimpses of which teams are good, bad, and teams that stand out from the rest like Alabama. However, they play an 11th ranked Florida Gator team Saturday at 1:30 pm MST on CBS. The Tide leads the head-to-head series 26-14 and has won 7 straight against the Gators since 2009. Some other interesting matchups this week is Colorado vs. Minnesota. Colorado goes into the matchup as -2.5 point favorites after losing an affair to #5 Texas A&M 7-10, I am confident they will win by more than 3 points because of the way they played against A&M. Also, 19th ranked Arizona State heads to Utah to face 23rd ranked BYU. Both teams are going into week 3 with 2-0 records and both look to keep their standings as most likely the team to lose this game drops out of the top 25. The scoring total sits at 51.5 points, Arizona State scores in bunches and BYU will stay with their pace. This game will definitely go over 52 points. The best bet this week is Virginia (+8) vs. 21 North Carolina. Virginia (2-0) has looked good in their past two outings, dismantling Illinois 42-14 last week. UNC, on the other hand, had high hopes going into the season with Sam Howell at the helm. Howell threw three interceptions to Virginia Tech, who came into the season with a worse team than the Cavaliers and beat UNC 17-10. It wouldn’t be a stretch to bet big on Virgina this week. Another good bet to place would be on the (+6) Michigan State Spartans vs. 24 Miami. Miami nearly squeaked a win against a Sun Belt conference team, Appalachian State. Michigan State looks to repeat what Appalachian State did to contain D’Eriq King and Co. this Saturday.It is still early into a young college football season but don’t be scared to take some risk on upsets this week as there were a handful of them in week 2.

Alabama 35 Florida 14: Alabama money line
