College Football Betting Preview
No. 17 Baylor (2-1, 0-0 in Big 12) at Iowa State (3-0, 0-0 in Big 12), Noon, Saturday, ESPN2
Iowa State is unranked and playing at home against the Baylor Bears on Saturday in a Big 12 showdown. Iowa State has been tremendous on defense this season, only allowing a total of 27 points over three games. They also won a big game against in-state rival Iowa on September 10th.
Baylor hasn’t impressed me at all this season. Sure, they blew out two smaller programs but suffered a loss against BYU on September 10th, only managing to score 20 points.
Pick: Iowa State -2.5
No. 5 Clemson (3-0, 1-0 in ACC) at No. 21 Wake Forest (3-0, 0-0 in ACC), Noon, Saturday, ABC
Who is going to win the ACC? Well, we may find out on Saturday with Clemson and Wake Forest facing off at noon in Winston-Salem. Last week, we rode Wake at -16.5 against Liberty and lost. Credit to me for admitting it. I didn’t think Liberty would drop 36 points on Wake, who managed to squeak by with a one-point victory.
I won’t make the same mistake again.
Clemson has won 13 consecutive games against Wake and Tigers’ running back Will Shipley ran for 111 yards and two touchdowns in the last matchup as Clemson rolled 48-27 at home.
Pick: Clemson -7
No. 10 Arkansas (3-0, 1-0 in SEC) vs. No. 23 Texas A&M (2-1, 0-0 in SEC), at Arlington, Texas, 7 p.m., Saturday, ESPN
The Hogs are looking to start their season 4-0 for the first time since the late 1980s on Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. Arkansas is led by quarterback KJ Jefferson, who has 770 passing yards, six touchdowns, and one interception on the year.
Behind Jefferson is running back Raheim “Rocket” Sanders, who ranks third nationally in rushing yards per game (146.7) and is the first Razorbacks runner to open the season with three straight 100-yard rushing performances.
The Aggies beat Miami 17-9 last week but are still generally overwhelming. I can’t get over the 17-14 home loss to Appalachian State the previous week.
I’m a huge Jefferson guy and he hasn’t let us down yet. Go Hogs.
Pick: Arkansas +2
Wisconsin (2-1, 0-0 in Big Ten) at No. 3 Ohio State (3-0, 0-0 in Big Ten), 7:30 p.m., Saturday, ABC
Ohio State dropped 77 points on Toledo last week and should dominate Wisconsin this weekend. The Buckeyes have won the last eight against the Badgers and five in a row at Columbus.
CJ Stroud is playing on a Heisman level. Buckeyes Roll.
Pick: Ohio State -19
