Week 3 Picks: Miami, BYU, Georgia

After a Week 2 featuring major upsets up and down the betting board, Week 3 college football picks hope to restore some normalcy to our tickets.

We like Georgia to stomp South Carolina, a week after they put a mild beating on poor little Samford. BYU is a small road dog worthy of attention and Miami is also a live dog at Texas A&M. Check out our 3-pack of picks heading into the weekend and watch for line moves on the college football odds pages.

Georgia at South Carolina (+24.5)

Georgia crushed Samford 33-0 last week, but it wasn’t enough for bettors as they failed to cover the spread. The Bulldogs defense appears to be just as strong this season despite a ton of players departing to the NFL. Through two games Georgia has outscored their opponents 82-3. On the road the Bulldogs have won six straight ATS and they were favored in all six games.

Last year against South Carolina they failed to cover as 31.5-point favorites in a 40-13 win. South Carolina hasn’t been a good bet as a home underdog at 2-5 ATS in their last seven. They’ve also lost three in a row at home to Georgia both SU and ATS.

Quarterback Spencer Rattler was under pressure a lot last week in the Gamecocks’ 44-30 loss to Arkansas. The Georgia defense will eat him alive. Full game preview and pick.

BYU at Oregon (-3.5)

BYU gets no respect this week as 3.5-point underdogs versus Oregon. It could be a good line for bettors though. BYU is 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five as the underdog and 8-3 ATS in their last 11.

Oregon picked up their first win last week, but it was a cupcake matchup against Eastern Washington. At home the Ducks have won 20 straight games with a 9-11 ATS record. That winning streak ends this weekend.

Pick: BYU +3.5

Miami (Florida) at Texas A&M (-5)

Miami has been a solid road bet lately with a 5-1 ATS record in their last six road games. They’ve also delivered as an underdog with three straight wins ATS and a 7-3 ATS record in their last 10. One red flag is Miami record against the SEC. In their last seven versus the conference they’re 1-6 SU and 3-4 ATS.

Texas A&M is 0-2 ATS on the season after last week’s embarrassing 17-14 loss to Appalachian State as an 18-point favorite. When favored the Aggies are only 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five. However, they have won five straight ATS against opponents from the ACC.

However, the Aggies are 22-1 SU in their past 23 games in the month of September, so they take care of business early each season.

Pick: Miami +5
