Last weeks wagers went pretty well finishing the 2nd week of the college season at 4-2-1 ATS. We had a few games going down to game winning field goals, and overtime games. It was well worth the sweat. This week we only have two matchups with teams both ranked among the top 25. Let’s take a look at these NCAA Football wagers for week 3.
Noon Kickoffs 9-17-2022
#6 Oklahoma (-11.5) at Nebraska
I will be loading up on Oklahoma -11.5 vs Nebraska. Nebraska has been underwhelming for years. They just lost this past week to Georgia Southern, and it was finally enough for them to move on from HC Scott Frost. Interim HC Mickey Joseph might be able to get Nebraska on track, but I don’t look for it to start against the #6 team in the country.
#1 Georgia (-24) at South Carolina
The defending champion bulldogs have yet to allow a TD this season after two games. Now last week wasn’t much of a challenge going against Samford. However, this team looks like it’s out to repeat what they did last year. I look for them to open up the SEC Schedule with a huge win over South Carolina who lost by Two touchdowns last week to #10 Arkansas.
Oklahoma -11.5 & Georgia -24
Cal (+11) at Notre Dame
Last week I was ready to see Notre Dame show up and put it to Marshall. That didn’t happen, resulting in The Herd of Marshall coming in like a Stampede over the Fighting Irish. On top of them looking miserable, Starting QB Buchner is going to miss 4 months with a shoulder injury. This has more to do with Notre Dames lack of play making and ability to move the ball down field, than my excitement of Cal. I’ll take the 11 points as ND tries to find themselves.
Houston (-9) vs. Kansas
Houston lost in OT last week to Texas Tech, although they did still cover with +4. The Cougars had the game won, but let up at 4th and forever that eventually cost them the game. Kansas is looking like they may actually have a QB with Jalon Daniels, being 2-0 and just taking down West Virginia. However, Houston can win in all 3 phases of the game. It’s tough not to want to put money on an electrifying playing like Daniels, but its a team sport. I’m going back to the well with Houston in this one.
Cal +11 & Houston -9
MSU (+3.5) at Washington
Washington is at home with star transfer QB Michael Penix Jr. from Indiana. He knows all about Big Ten Football. Penix Jr. has played MSU twice in his career, in 2019 he lost to MSU however, he did put up 286 passing yards three touchdowns and zero Ints with almost 80% completion rate, and adding an additional TD on the ground with -4 yards rushing. In his 2nd appearance against MSU in 2020, Penix Jr came away with the win, however they had some answers for him, allowing only a 65.8% completion rating, also intercepting him twice, while allowing two touchdowns and 320 yards passing. Once again they kept him with negative rushing yards with negative eight.
Michigan St. has started hot this year, with a 35-13 win against Western Michigan and 52-0 win vs. Akron led by the ground game and defense. I look for the strong defensive performance to keep up. Here is more on their rushing attack by Ron Mayhew at Gridiron Heroics.
