College Football Week 3 Odds

Clemson Tigers at Syracuse Orange

Sept. 14, 2019

Clemson Tigers odds

The Tigers are wary of Syracuse, because the Orange knocked them off in the Dome in 2017 and nearly did the same last season at Clemson before Travis Etienne rushed for a touchdown with 41 seconds for a 27-23 victory. Etienne, a junior, is off to an All-American start in 2019, averaging 9.2 yards per carry heading into a matchup against a Syracuse team giving up 175 rushing yards per game. Trevor Lawrence is looking for his first big game of the season after not having to do much in the first two games, as he has passed for 436 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.

Syracuse Orange odds

Syracuse is looking for a “reboot” to use coach Dino Baber’s word after a 63-20 loss at Maryland, which gained 650 yards, which is something Clemson is capable of doing to the Orange. Syracuse let four players  rush for at least 67 yards. Syracuse quarterback Tommy DeVito, a first-year starter, will try to keep pace after throwing for 506 yards in a 1-1 start. The Orange also will be trying to ride a wave of energy from its first home sellout in more than two decades.

Alabama Crimson Tide at South Carolina Gamecocks

Sept. 14, 2019

Alabama Crimson Tide odds

Tua Tagovailoa looks as efficient as ever, completing 42 of 55 passes for 563 yards with seven TDs and no interceptions in easy victories over Duke and New Mexico State. Now comes the SEC opener, although the Tide should continue to roll offensively with a fast and deep receiving corps, led by Jerry Jeudy (18 catches, 240 yards, four touchdowns). Alabama has 25 500-yard games in its past 60 contests, and its defense has six takeaways through the first two games of the season.

South Carolina Gamecocks odds

Having a true freshman quarterback making his second career start doesn’t sound like a recipe for success against Alabama, but Ryan Hilinski did impress last week in a 72-10 rout of FCS foe Charleston Southern. He was 24 of 30 for 282 yards and two touchdowns as he stepped in for injured senior Jake Bentley, who is out for the season. South Carolina looks more physical in the running game in recent seasons, but the level of competition might have something to do with that. The teams haven’t met since a South Carolina upset in 2010, so there is no recent history as a guide.

Arkansas State Red Wolves at Georgia Bulldogs

Sept. 14, 2019

Arkansas State Red Wolves odds

Coach Blake Anderson returned to the team hours before last weekend’s 43-17 victory at UNLV after he had been away since his wife, Wendy, died because of cancer on Aug. 19. That was the program’s largest margin of victory against a nonconference FBS opponent since 2011. Emotions figure to remain high — Georgia has asked fans to wear pink in Wendy’s memory — and maybe the Red Wolves can catch Georgia looking ahead to next week’s big matchup against Notre Dame.

Georgia Bulldogs odds

Georgia is coming off a 63-17 win over Murray State last weekend, when it scored 35 points in the second quarter. Jake Fromm is 25-5 as a starting quarterback but hasn’t been called upon to do much other than be efficient so far this season, as Georgia has leaned on its running game (296.0 yards per game) against overmatched foes, including Vanderbilt in the opener. The Dawgs’ offensive line averages 328.6 pounds — the biggest starting unit in school history — and D’Andre Swift is averaging 9.7 yards on 22 carries.

Oklahoma Sooners at UCLA Bruins

Sept. 14, 2019

Oklahoma Sooners odds

The Sooners, with Alabama transfer quarterback Jalen Hurts at the helm, have rolled to wins over Houston and South Dakota, averaging 59.5 points per game. Hurts will be trying to do what predecessor Kyler Murray did last season against the Bruins last season in Norman — account for 375 total yards and five TDs in a 49-21 victory. A big-play receiving corps led by CeeDee Lamb (eight catches, 190 yards) will take aim at a UCLA secondary that gave up 292 passing yards in last week’s loss to San Diego State, not noted for its passing attack.

UCLA Bruins odds

The UCLA secondary has missed standout CB Darnay Holmes (ankle) through the first two games. He was able to practice some this week and was questionable as of Wednesday. The Bruins are 0-2 and have lost 11 of 14 games under coach Chip Kelly, whose offense hasn’t taken flight in Pasadena. UCLA has 28 points in two games and quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson has completed 32 of 61 passes for 355 yards. Running back Joshua Kelley missed the season-opening loss at Cincinnati but returned last week, when he gained 53 yards on 15 carries.

Ohio State Buckeyes at Indiana Hoosiers

Sept. 14, 2019

Ohio State Buckeyes odds

Sophomore quarterback Justin Fields has been as advertised following his transfer from Georgia, passing for 458 yards and six touchdowns and adding three rushing scores in wins over Florida Atlantic and Cincinnati. Running back J.K. Dobbins has rushed for 232 yards, helping lead a quick-strike offense. The defense has roared, including the shutout of the Bearcats last week. Ohio State is allowing 64.5 rushing yards per game and 1.93 yards per carry. Defensive end Chase Young has three sacks and cementing his case a high first-round pick in 2020.

Indiana Hoosiers odds

The Hoosiers have passed for 742 yards against Ohio State in the past two seasons and were competitive into the fourth quarter last season before the Buckeyes pulled away for a 49-26 victory. Indiana will look to continue to go to the air behind redshirt freshman QB Michael Penix Jr., who beat out returning starter Peyton Ramsey in fall camp. Penix has 523 passing yards in his first two starts, with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Indiana, too, is coming off a shutout — 52-0 over Eastern Illinois, an FCS school. The Hoosiers’ last win over Ohio State came in 1988.

New Mexico Lobos at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Sept. 14, 2019

New Mexico Lobos odds

This game was scheduled so New Mexico coach Bob Davie could return to Notre Dame, where he once coached, although he will not make the trip after suffering what was called a “serious medical incident” after the team’s season-opener on Aug. 31. He said he will recover and be fine, but running game coordinator Saga Tuitele will coach the team for now. New Mexico, which has had back-to-back 3-9 seasons, wanted to revive its running game this season under new coordinator Joe Dailey, but the Lobos passed for 340 yards against San Houston State.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish odds

One question for Notre Dame to answer is depth at running back after losing Jafar Armstrong for several weeks after he tore an abdominal muscle in the season-opening win at Louisville. The Irish have Tony Jones Jr., who rushed 15 times for 110 yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals, and also moved Avery Davis — a former high school quarterback — from cornerback to running back this week. Meanwhile, savvy quarterback Ian Book will try to shred a New Mexico defense that last season was 119th nationally in yards allowed.

Kent State Golden Flashes at Auburn Tigers

Sept. 14, 2019

Kent State Golden Flashes odds

Kent State, which eked past FCS opponent Kennesaw State 26-23 in overtime last week, wasn’t saying who would start at quarterback this season. Woody Barrett started all 12 games last season (when the Golden Flashes went 2-10) plus this season’s opening loss at Arizona State, but coach Sean Lewis went with junior Dustin Crum last week. Crum was 17 of 23 for 192 yards and one TD. As to which one would start this week against one of the best defensive lines in college football, Lewis was mum.

Auburn Tigers odds

True freshman Bo Nix remains the starter after opening the season with two wins — including the comeback against Oregon — but Auburn also is intrigued with redshirt freshman quarterback Joey Gatewood, who has a big, physical presence in the running game, drawing some early comparisons to Cam Newton in that regard. Look for coach Gus Malzahn to use both Saturday, with Gatewood trying to state a case beyond situational, short-yardage use. Neither QB will be able to throw to Seth Williams, who is out because of shoulder injury. He caught the game-winner with nine seconds to go against Oregon.

Florida Gators at Kentucky Wildcats

Sept. 14, 2019

Florida Gators odds

Florida is seeking payback for losing 27-16 at home to Kentucky last season, the Gators’ first loss in the series since 1986. UF will have to do it without wide receiver Kadarius Toney (shoulder) and probably star cornerback CJ Henderson, who was considered doubtful because of a sprained left ankle. Coach Dan Muller said he didn’t want to play Henderson at less than 100 percent. The best part of Florida’s early season performance has been its attacking defensive front, which has posted a national-best 15 sacks and 26 tackles for loss in two games.

Kentucky Wildcats odds

Kentucky has a new quarterback to face Florida’s pressure — Troy transfer Sawyer Smith, who arrived in late summer. He replaces Terry Wilson, who suffered a season-ending torn patellar tendon last week against Eastern Michigan. Smith came in and was 5 of 9 for 76 yards and two touchdowns. Coach Mark Stoops says the offense isn’t expected to change much and that Smith can handle the full playbook despite not being with the team for very long.

Idaho State Bengals at Utah Utes

Sept. 14, 2019

Idaho State Bengals odds

Idaho State, an FCS school that has never defeated a Pac-12 team (0-14), is 1-0 on the season, a 38-13 victory over Western Colorado. Quarterback Matt Struck, a junior making his playing debut for the Bengals, completed 23 of 41 passes for 402 yards and four touchdowns. Tanner Conner caught 10 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns, while Michael Dean hauled in eight throws for 163 yards and a score. Will the Bengals be able to run? Utah has one of the best defensive lines in the nation and is giving up just 79.5 yards per game on the ground. 

Utah Utes odds

An efficient offense and a stingy defense is the Utah formula. The Utes haven’t allowed a sack and have not committed a turnover in wins over BYU and Northern Illinois. Quarterback Tyler Huntley is completing 77.1 percent of his passes (27 of 35), while Zack Moss is a workhorse running with power and make-you-miss ability, having gaining 267 yards on 47 carries this season. Defensive lineman Bradlee Anae has three sacks, and the Utes have a pair of pick-sixes this season from a lockdown secondary. 

Texas Longhorns at Rice Owls

Sept. 14, 2019

Texas Longhorns odds

Texas is looking to get back in the win column after a 45-38 home loss to then-No. 6 LSU, a game in which the good news was the Longhorns scored 31 second-half points and put up 530 yards against an always-good Tigers defense. Sam Ehlinger has completed 59 of 85 passes for 677 yards, with eight touchdowns and no interceptions, in two games, while also finding time for run for 94 yards and a score. A young defense will be without sophomore cornerback B.J. Foster, who is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury.

Rice Owls odds

Rice is 0-2 after last Friday’s 41-21 loss to Wake Forest and is 3-24 since the beginning of the 2017 season. The Owls will head into this game — played at the home of the Houston Texans — with uncertainty at quarterback after Wiley Green suffered a first-quarter head injury last week. Harvard graduate transfer Tom Stewart would take over in Green’s absence. Stewart was 19 of 30 for 185 yards and a touchdown in a relief effort against Wake Forest. He might not know the playbook as well as Green, but the Dallas native was honorable mention All-Ivy last season.

Pitt Panthers at Penn State Nittany Lions

Sept. 14, 2019

Pitt Panthers odds

The school meet for the 100th time — with no future series planned — so energy and emotion will be high on both sides. Pitt, which is 0-5 on the road against Penn State since 1988, opened with a loss to Virginia but is coming off a 20-10 win over Ohio in which quarterback Kenny Pickett had a bounce-back effort. He completed 26 of 37 passes for 321 yards and one touchdown. Wide receiver Maurice Ffrench caught a career-high 10 passes against Ohio, including a 74-yard touchdown.

Penn State Nittany Lions odds

Penn State’s competition has been light — Idaho and Buffalo — but it’s probably a blessing for the Nittany Lions, who were breaking in new quarterback Sean Clifford. He’s thrown for six touchdown passes, with no interceptions. The Nittany Lions’ 124 points are their most-ever through the first two games of a season. The defense made life difficult for Pitt’s Pickett last season — he was 9 of 18 for 55 yards, sacked four times — as Penn State rolled 51-6. This year, defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos already has 3.5 sacks.

Montana Grizzlies at Oregon Ducks

Sept. 14, 2019

Montana Grizzlies odds

The Grizzlies are tied for 18th in the FCS coaches poll, opening with wins over South Dakota and North Alabama, but are now facing a ranked FBS team for just the third time in their history. Quarterback Dalton Sneed, a former starter at UNLV, has the offense humming, as Montana is averaging 520 yards and leads the FCS with 64 first downs. Wide receivers Samuel Akem and Samori Toure each have more than 200 receiving yards. Sneed has 696 passing yards. 

Oregon Ducks odds

The Ducks didn’t have a hangover after dropping a heartbreaker to Auburn in the final seconds, as they walloped Nevada 77-6 last week. Justin Herbert threw for 310 yards and five touchdowns before calling it a day in the third quarter. Although 10 players scored touchdowns against the Wolf Pack, Herbert still doesn’t have a full complement of wideouts due to injury. One of those receivers, Penn State graduate transfer Juwan Johnson, was considered “50-50” to play this week because of a leg injury, but perhaps it’s best to rest him up for the Pac-12 opener next week at Stanford. 

Trends

  • The Over is 7-1 in the last 8 Montana games when the points total is less than 70 
  • The Under is 7-1 in the last 8 Oregon games when opponent’s winning percentage is less than .650 

Lamar Cardinals at Texas A&M

Sept. 14, 2019

Lamar Cardinals odds

Lamar, the preseason pick to finish fifth in the Southland Conference, is off to its first 2-0 start since 1985, but is catching a Texas A&M team eager to run free after being held down by No. 1 Clemson last week in a 24-10 loss. One of those Lamar victories came against NAIA team Bethel (Tenn.), and the other came in overtime vs. Mississippi Valley State. Quarterback Jordan Hoy is off to a good start, having completed 39 of 63 passes for 459 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also has five rushing touchdown among his 28 carries. 

Texas A&M odds

Kellen Mond was just OK against Clemson, going 24 of 42 for 236 yards while the Aggies couldn’t mount a running game against the Tigers, managing just 53 yards on 27 attempts. That should change against Lamar, and coach Jimbo Fisher is going to want to see what he has in the backfield now that his leading rusher, sophomore Jashaun Corbin, is out for the season due to a hamstring injury. Look for true freshman Isaiah Spiller to get the start, with Cordarrian Richardson, Deneric Prince and Jacob Kibodi also in the mix.  

Trends

  • Lamar is 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games when they scored less than 42 points last game 
  • Lamar is 10-0 ATS in their last 10 games when they passed for less than 350 yards in their last game 
  • Texas A&M is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games when they are averaging less than 275 pass yards per game 
  • Texas A&M is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games when the points total is more than 50

Stanford Cardinal at UCF Knights

Sept. 14, 2019

Stanford Cardinal odds

Stanford will have quarterback K.J. Costello available after he missed last week’s loss at USC due to a head injury. That was the good news for a team traveling across the country, as the team also learned this week that junior left tackle Walker Little — a potential first-round pick in 2020 — won’t return this season after suffering a reported dislocated knee. Stanford retains its reputation as a power running team but it averaged only 107.9 rushing yards per game last season, are at 115.0 yards per game this season … and being without Little hurts.

The Knights’ past three wins have come with three different quarterbacks at the helm, and all could be available this week. Notre Dame transfer Brandon Wimbush started the opener but gave way to true freshman Dillon Gabriel in last week’s win over Florida Atlantic because of an undisclosed injury. Coaches said Wednesday that Wimbush would play, and sophomore Darriel Mack Jr. — who stepped in for injured McKenzie Milton late last season, is also expected to be available after an offseason ankle injury. Any which way, the Knights have scored at least 30 points in 28 consecutive games.

Arizona State at Michigan State Spartans

Sept. 14, 2019

Arizona State odds

Arizona State has one of the top running backs in the nation in Eno Benjamin, although the Sun Devils are only averaging 131 rushing yards per game through a 2-0 over Kent State and Sacramento State. The offensive line has been the issue, which is not a comforting thought heading to East Lansing, where Michigan State had the nation’s best rushing defense last season and is No. 1 early this season, allowing minus-3 yards per game. This also will be the first road test for dual-threat quarterback Jayden Daniels, who has no turnovers in two games.

The defense is one of the best in the nation. The questions is, is it time to buy the Michigan State offense? The Spartans were brutal last season, averaging 18.7 points per game, and then managing just one touchdown in a season-opening win over Tulsa. Last week, though, MSU broke out with 51 points against Western Michigan, as senior Brian Lewerke threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns. Another happy development is redshirt freshman Elijah Collins looking like a No. 1 running back, gaining 192 yards on 17 carries last week.

Iowa Hawkeyes at Iowa State Cyclones

Sept. 14, 2019

Iowa Hawkeyes odds

Iowa, which has won four in a row in the series, is off to a big start defensively, allowing 14 points to Miami (Ohio) and none last week to Rutgers. Defensive end A.J. Epenesa is an All-American-caliber player, and Iowa also has picked off 44 passes since the start of the 2017 season, the most in the FBS in that span. Meanwhile, senior Nate Stanley will be making his 29th consecutive start, protected by future NFLer Tristan Wirfs at left tackle. This will be a fantastic battle up front as Iowa takes on an experienced Iowa State defensive line.

Iowa State Cyclones odds

The Cyclones survived triple overtime against Northern Iowa on Aug. 31, winning 29-26, and then had last week off as the hype built for this in-state rivalry, with ESPN’s “College GameDay” show traveling to Ames, Iowa, for the first time. The Cyclones, who were ranked in the first two AP polls this season before barely falling out, have won seven in a row at home. They’re hoping quarterback Brock Purdy, who emerged last season after the team took an early 13-3 loss to the Hawkeyes, can spark the attack this time around. He is 8-2 as a starter. Iowa State is 5-4 against ranked teams since 2017.

Washington State Cougars at Houston Cougars

Sept. 13, 2019

Washington State Cougars odds

Mike Leach apparently picked wisely when he selected senior Anthony Gordon as his starting quarterback, when many expected touted Eastern Washington transfer Gage Gubrud to win the job in camp. The Cougars’ competition has been lacking — New Mexico State and Northern Colorado — but it’s hard to not be impressed with Gordon, who is completing 81.1 percent of his passes in the Air Raid attack and who ranks third nationally in passing efficiency with a rating of 218.9.

Houston Cougars odds

These Cougars also have a star quarterback, which portends a shootout. D’Eriq King accounted for 50 touchdowns last season, despite missing the final two-and-a-half games due to injury. He has 306 passing yards and 102 rushing yards this season for new coach Dana Holgorsen, a disciple of Friday night’s coaching opponent, Mike Leach. The issue for Houston is whether its defense can stop a wide-open attack, which it failed to do in the opening 49-31 loss to Oklahoma, although WSU quarterback Anthony Gordon doesn’t have the legs of OU’s Jalen Hurts.

Maryland Terrapins at Temple Owls

Sept. 14, 2019

Maryland Terrapins odds

Maryland has been super-charged through two games, smashing Howard 79-0 and backing it up with a 63-20 beat-down of No. 21 Syracuse. The combination of new head coach Mike Locksley and Virginia Tech transfer quarterback Josh Jackson has helped propel the Terrapins to their highest ranking since 2006. Jackson is looking the freshman star he was with the Hokies two years ago, completing 38 of 62 passes for 541 yards and seven touchdowns. Anthony McFarland Jr. has four rushing scores in two games as Maryland is averaging 335.5 rushing yards per game.

Temple Owls odds

Temple is coming off a bye after opening with a 56-12 win over FCS foe Bucknell. Returning starting quarterback Anthony Russo was solid last season (although his 14 interceptions were troubling) and he was sharp against Bucknell, hitting on 32 of 41 passes for 409 yards and four touchdowns. Russo must limit mistakes for the Owls to have a chance; Maryland has 12 sacks in two games and has forced a turnover in 14 consecutive games. Russo was 15 of 25 for 228 yards with a TD and interception when Temple handled the Terps 35-14 on the road last season.

Portland State Vikings at Boise State Broncos

Sept. 14, 2019

Portland State Vikings odds

FCS school Portland State might not be a pushover, considering it scared Arkansas before losing 20-13 on the road in its opener before pummeling Division II Simon Fraser 70-7. The Vikings typically don’t score much against FBS teams — they have failed to score 20 points in five of the past six such matchups — but the defense is playing well and is the ticket to keeping this one close. Portland State recorded a stunning 20 tackles for loss last week, including eight sacks. Its quarterback, Davis Alexander, has 373 passing yards in two games. 

Boise State Broncos odds

Boise State true freshman quarterback Hank Bachmeier has looked like the real deal, throwing for 689 yards in two games, including 407 in the season-opening comeback win at Florida State. But the Broncos are leaving a lot of points on the field with only four touchdowns in 12 red-zone chances, and holding on to the ball has been an issue as BSU has lost possession three of the eight times it has put the ball on the turf. More efficient play will lead to the kind of margin of victory that coach Bryan Harsin wants to see. 

Trends

  • Boise State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games when they recorded less than 500 yards in their last game 
  • Boise State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games when opponent’s winning percentage is less than .450 
  • The Under is 6-0 in the last 6 Portland State games when Portland State is averaging less than 150 rush yards per game 

Hawaii Warriors at Washington Huskies

Sept. 14, 2019

Hawaii Warriors odds

Hawaii will be trying to go 3-0 against the Pac-12 after wins over Arizona and Oregon State, but the Warriors now have to go on the road and face a Washington team that is significantly more talented than either of those other Pac-12 squads. Hawaii’s run-and-shoot passing attack features four-wide sets with plenty of speed and playmakers, with two — JoJo Ward (against Arizona) and Cedric Byrd II (vs. Oregon State) — winning Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week honors.

 Washington Huskies odds

The Huskies’ young secondary will be tested by Hawaii’s scheme and the arm of Cole McDonald, who is averaging 399.5 passing yards per game. Washington will also be trying to get back on track after a 20-19 upset loss to Cal last week ended its 15-game home winning streak. The Jacob Eason era was supposed to usher in more downfield passing in what was a conservative Washington approach with QB Jake Browning, but that didn’t come to fruition last week. Eason was 18 of 30 for 162 yards with an interception.

USC Trojans at BYU Cougars

Sept. 14, 2019

USC Trojans odds

The Trojans moved into the AP rankings this week and their outlook actually seems brighter — if you believe what you saw from true freshman Kedon Slovis last week. Taking over for injured JT Daniels (out for the season), Slovis impressed by completing 28 of 33 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns last week in a 45-20 win over then-No. 23 Stanford. This will be his first road test and it will be fascinating to see his development in new coordinator Graham Harrell’s attack. For sure, USC has the size and speed at receiver, with guys like Tyler Vaughns, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Michael Pittman.

BYU Cougars odds

BYU escaped Tennessee with a double-overtime victory last week to improve to 1-1, with sophomore quarterback Zach Wilson so far this season completing 40 of 62 passes for 440 yards. He has completed at least 60 percent of his passes in eight of his past nine starts. Ty’Son Williams has rushed for 137 yards and two touchdowns, but the running game overall has been lacking, with the Cougars posting 199 yards on the ground in two games while allowing 504 rushing yards.

Florida State Seminoles at Virginia Cavaliers

Sept. 14, 2019

Florida State Seminoles odds

Coach Willie Taggart is sticking with sophomore quarterback James Blackman after the team lost its opener to Boise State and barely escaped with a 45-44 win over Louisiana-Monroe. Taggart does have the option to go to Wisconsin grad transfer Alex Hornibrook, but Blackman hasn’t exactly been the main concern. He has completed 53 of 73 passes for 609 yards, with six TDs and two interceptions. Cam Akers has rushed for 309 yards. FSU’s persistent problem has been the offensive line, as the ‘Noles have allowed 20 tackles for loss in two games.

Virginia Cavaliers odds

The Cavs are rolling behind speedy quarterback Bryce Perkins, a former Arizona State player who in just 15 games with Virginia has accumulated 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards. He will be trying to lead the Cavaliers to their first home win over FSU since 2005. Virginia has dispatched Pitt and William & Mary before this ACC opener, giving up only 70.5 rushing yards per game. Pro scouts will be very keen on seeing the matchup of Virginia star cornerback Bryce Hall against 6-foot-4 sophomore playmaker Tamorrion Terry.
