The new list of Jerry Palm’s best bets includes an upset when Kansas plays Houston.
Well, that was one crazy week of football! And it almost got worse, but Alabama came back to win against Texas. Also, who knew that, at least for now, the Sun Belt Conference would jump to the top of the Group of Five? Things might start to calm down a bit now that we’ve been here for a few weeks.
College football picks
I’ll use this space every week to tell you what I think are the best bets for the weekend. I’ll also pick an upset of the week, which will be a team that is favoured by at least a touchdown but I think will win by a bigger margin.
I will also tell you who to pick in other games between teams that could make the College Football Playoff. Since most teams haven’t played yet, everyone is technically in the running for the CFP right now. So I’ll go with the current AP top 12, at least for the first few weeks of the season.
Florida vs. USF leads best bets in Week 3
I picked two winners and one loser in Week 1. I did not pick the upset of the week. I’m back at work after a week off. Given how crazy last week was, it might have been for the best.
The Gators are still upset about their loss to Kentucky at home last week. This week, they’ll have a team to take out their anger on. USF lost 50 to BYU in its only game against an FBS team so far. The Florida offence should also have a field day and do enough to cover this spread.
This season, the Mountain West conference is strong at the top, and Air Force could be the best team in it. As with all service academies, the Falcons will almost always run the ball, and so far this season, they have done very well. Last week, they had 435 yards against Colorado. Wyoming did not do well against Illinois’s offence, which focused on running the ball. They gave up more than six yards per carry. For this to be close, the Cowboys will have to step up their game.
