College Football Week 3 - Pick Recap
The team put together a nice 6-4 card this weekend resulting in a positive 2.2 unit Saturday. For the year we are 16-16 up .3 units. The system is heating up and we should have another 8-10 game card available this Saturday. There is still plenty of time to get in on the action for 2019! Be a winner and sign up today.
CFB WEEK 3
The ProMathletics' college squad is hitting the road this week, with 9 out of 10 picks sleeping in hotels on Friday night. We turned it around with a positive overall result in week 2. Let's build on the momentum! Home team in CAPS, picks in blue.
TCU (-2.5) @ Purdue
This line opened with Purdue as the 1.5-point favorites but has since moved to TCU -2.5. The major contributor is the concern of Purdue QB, Elijah Sindelar. Sindelar suffered a concussion last weekend and his status is questionable. TCU, on the other hand, has one too many QBs. Last week, in their home opener, coach Gary Patterson displayed the ole dual QB scheme. Max Duggan is a true freshman and Alex Delton is a 5th year senior. Both played well, but rumor has it that Patterson will lean more on a 1 QB scheme going forward as Delton will get the start this Saturday. This game will be the first true test for both teams and we like TCU by 10 points or more. So obviously we love this game under 3 points and will gladly lay the points on the road.
Ohio State (-17.5) at Indiana
The Buckeyes beat up on their little brother last Saturday waxing the Cincinnati Bearcats 42-0. The Bucks have put up 40+ points in their 1st two games and we expect the same this Saturday as they go on the road to Bloomington. We expect all business from Ryan Day’s Buckeyes and our models like them as 3-TD favorites.
Iowa (-2) at Iowa State
The Cyclones have already struggled once with an Iowa team this year. 2 weeks ago, Iowa Sate found themselves in a slugfest with Northern Iowa and ended up only winning by 3 points. Coming off a bye, they will face the best football team in the state, the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes beat up on Miami (OH) week 1 and thumped Rutgers last week. This is a road game, but our models give them a 71% chance to win and at (-2) that’s basically what we need to cover. Again, lay the points on the road favorite.
Georgia State at Western Michigan (-8.5)
Georgia State found themselves relevant week 1 this year when they pulled off what will probably be the biggest upset of the year. The Panthers uprooted the Tennessee Vols on the road 38-30. However, what people don’t remember is last week they barely beat Furman at home 48-42. Western Michigan will get their 1st night game at Waldo Field. They are 1-1 after getting destroyed last Saturday by Sparty. This week we expect the opposite result. Our models love the Broncos. For this is to be under a 10-point spread is crazy. We would be more surprised if we woke up with our heads sewn to the carpet than a Georgia State cover. Lay the points as the Broncos roll!
Maryland (-7) @ Temple
Maryland is off to one of the hottest offensive starts in the history of college football. They put up a blistering 142 points in the first two weeks! Week 1 against an FCS foe wasn’t that impressive, but when they flat out embarrassed a good Syracuse team last week, we knew they were for real. Temple will bring a strong D and consistent level of play to this game, but we don’t think they will have the horsepower or conditioning to hang with this Maryland team all day. We like Maryland to stay hot and keep fine tuning their offense for Big Ten play. Lay the points for the Terps here.
Florida Atlantic (-2.5) @ Ball State
Joey Freshwater needs a win after playing two high octane top 25 offenses to start the season. Florida Atlanta is a much better team than Ball State, and they will finally be able to show they are not a doormat program. We love the matchup here and think -2.5 is an absolute blessing. Take this before it goes -3. Lay the points for FAU and ride the Lane Train to some easy cash.
Hawaii (+21.5) @ Washington
Hawaii 2-0 in the Pac 12 this year! Too bad they aren’t even in the conference as they go for a 3-0 start. The Jake Browning era at Washington has come to a close and it doesn’t look like Jacob Eason is the transfer everyone hoped he would be. The Huskies lost a lot of people last year to graduation and this Hawaii team doesn’t go down without a fight. The system thinks 21.5 is just way too many. We love the easy cover here with the hook. Take the points for the Rainbows.
