Week 3:  College Football Lines

Week 2 saw another couple FCS upsets including Virginia Tech’s shocker of a performance against James Madison.  It will be interesting to see how their fall affects Boise State’s championship resume.  One thing that could help BSU is a win by Nevada over Cal this week.  Just one of several pretty good games on tap.  No blockbusters but plenty of good action again this week.  

There is lots to cover to lets get started.  (Home teams lines in Parethesis, odds courtesy of BetUS)


California @ Nevada (+3.5)

The Nevada attack led by Colin Kaepernick can be scary.  Figure this out.  Cal beats Colorado 52-7, Colorado beat Colorado State 24-3 and Nevada beat Colorado State 61-7.  It may not be simple math but I think it adds up to a potential upset for the Wolfpack at home.  I would grab this now as I think the margin is going to come down through the week.

Iowa State @Kansas State (-5.5)

These teams played a one point game last year and both need a victory here to have a chance at a season ending in a bowl game.  K-State has the advantage of being at home and the strong running but Iowa State is no pushover.  If this goes up to 7 consider the Cyclones.

Arkansas @ Georgia (-2.5)

The gauntlet continues in the SEC.  South Carolina had home field advantage against Georgia last week and now it is Georgia’s turn hosting the Razorbacks.  Odds are this will be a high scoring affair and it would have been great for Georgia to have their full compliment of weapons, Missing AJ Green could be the difference.  Definite upset potential here.

Tulsa @ Oklahoma State (-7)

These two teams are in the same state but I am not sure it is actually a rivalry.  One thing I am sure of is that a lot of points will be scored.  The Cowboys don’t seem to be missing their NFL losses (at least not yet) and Tulsa hasn’t played good defense since about 2007.  The spread here seems a bit right with Tulsa scoring late to cause the push

East Carolina @ Virginia Tech (-17.5)

I only want to bring attention to this game because of what happened last week.  I am sure that Frank Beamer is going to coach up his guys but this seems like a pretty lofty spread given recent events and the fact that ECU has been seemingly scoring at will the first two games.  Can you spot a team that lost to James Madison more than two TDs?

Nebraska @ Washington (+4.5)

Finally a bit of a test for the Cornhuskers.  With Jake Locker on the field the best athlete belongs to Washington.  Whether that, and being at home, will be enough to upset NU I am not sure but I do see potential that this could be a field goal game.  Need to keep an eye on the spread for this one during the week.

BYU @ Florida State (-9.5)

Both teams are coming off of disappointing losses.  The Seminoles were publicly embarrassed by Oklahoma while the Cougars suffered there humiliation a little more quietly against Air Force.  Both need to recover quickly or seasons with promise will end in disaster.  FSU is also seeking revenge from last years loss in Provo.

Baylor @ TCU (-21)

I want to highlight this game because it will be interesting to compare the line here with the one when the Bears visit Texas next month.  The outcomes of this and that one could be a factor in the BCS (I’m just sayin).  The last time these two teams met TCU shut them out 27-0.  QB Robert Griffin will be a good test for the Horned Frogs defense.

Clemson @ Auburn (-6)

An underrated solid contest between two pretty good teams.  ACC needs some redemption after last week but it will be hard to come by against Auburn.  I have been watching Cam Newton for the last couple of games and have been thinking that he just might be a faster, better throwing version of Tim Tebow.  Is that crazy?  The lower the line goes the more I like Auburn.  Unlike last week I am going to wait on this one.

Texas @ Texas Tech (+3)

This is the first real test for a Texas team that hasn’t looked all that great over the first couple of games.  Also the first chance forTommy Tuberville to measure himself against the conference elite.  Last time Longhorns visited Lubbock it was with a loss.  The way they played against Rice another one could be coming.

Notre Dame @ Michigan State (-3)

These two teams play every year and the Spartans more than hold their own. They have won 6 of last 10 including 2 of the last three.  Both teams are looking to prove something with this one and MSU has the advantage of being at home.  Looks like a game that will come down to the last possession.  Not much value in the line here.

Iowa @ Arizona (+1.5)

The Hawkeyes have a chance at a special season but they better not sleep on Arizona in the desert.  The Wildcats have given up only 6 points on offense over two games (I know the competition wasn’t the highest) and have good balance on offense.  This is the toughest test yet for both teams.  I am curious to see how this one moves during the week.  I want to bet the dog but I need a couple more points.
