Week 3 of the NCAA football season doesn’t have as many big games as previous weeks, but there are still plenty of good betting options to choose from. Several teams are looking to bounce back from poor performances, and that is an aspect to keep in mind when betting.
If you want to win big on college football, then putting together a five-team NCAA football parlay is the way to go. Here are five teams to back this weekend when creating your NCAA football parlay.
Oklahoma Sooners -11.5 at Nebraska Cornhuskers
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are looking for a new head coach after firing Scott Frost after a 1-2 start. Things won’t get any easier for the next game as the Oklahoma Sooners come to town.
Nebraska enters Week 3 with a number of issues, and they just continue to struggle to win close games. The Cornhuskers will have to play extremely well to even keep this game close as Oklahoma is rolling.
The Sooners look like one of the best offenses in the country, and they should have no trouble scoring points in this one. Nebraska might hang tough for a half, but the Sooners are going to break it open and cover the big spread.
California Bears at Notre Dame Fighting Irish -10.5
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still looking for their first win of the season in Week 3, as they were just upset by Marshall in Week 2. Notre Dame also lost quarterback Tyler Buchner in that game, and that creates some issues on offense.
California comes to South Bend with a perfect 2-0 record, but they have played a relatively weak schedule up to this point. The Bears are looking to add to the misery of Notre Dame, but they just won’t be able to get things done in this one.
Despite the rough start, Notre Dame is still extremely talented, and they will figure things out in this one. Bet the Fighting Irish -10.5 as they pick up their first win of the NCAA football season.
BYU Cougars at Oregon Ducks -3.5
One of the biggest games in Week 3 will take place in Eugene, Oregon, as the Ducks are ready to host the BYU Cougars. BYU is 2-0 entering this game, while the Oregon Ducks are just 1-1 after a blowout loss in Week 1.
The Cougars want to win games by scoring points, but their defense dominated in a Week 2 win over the Baylor Bears. BYU won’t be able to slow down Oregon in the same way as the Ducks have the ability to be explosive.
This game is going to be close, but Oregon is going to find a way to pull away at home. Take the Ducks -3.5 as they pick up a big win in NCAA football Week 3.
Penn State Nittany Lions -3.0 at Auburn Tigers
A pair of 2-0 teams meet up on Saturday for a big matchup as the Penn State Nittany Lions take on the Auburn Tigers. Both teams have been able to pick up a pair of wins to begin the year, but each team still has some question marks as well.
Penn State is averaging over 300 passing yards per game, and they are able to put up points in a hurry. Auburn has been rushing for nearly 250 yards per game, but they are going to struggle in that department on Saturday.
Auburn just hasn’t been tested, and they will struggle in this game. Take the Nittany Lions -3.0 as they win this game by a touchdown.
Fresno State Bulldogs at USC Trojans -12.0
The USC Trojans have jumped out to a 2-0 start under new head coach Lincoln Riley, and they have looked extremely impressive. USC hosts Fresno State in Week 2, and the Bulldogs just suffered a loss to Oregon State.
Fresno State is going to have some serious trouble in this game, as the Bulldogs will have a tough time getting stops. USC is going to have a big day on offense, and this game could be over by halftime.
Take USC -12.0 as this game turns into a rout.
