NCAA Football Top 3 Betting Picks

Week three of the NCAA College Football season is upon us, and there aren't any huge matchups this weekend. Even though there aren't any top-10 matchups on the weekend slate in week three, there are still plenty of terrific betting opportunities. We have picked out the best betting matchups of the weekend and will break down all three of the games below.

Maryland Terrapins -7.5 at Temple Owls:

 The Maryland Terrapins are the biggest surprise so far in this college football season as their offense has been putting up points like crazy. The Terrapains have stormed out to a 2-0 start this season behind graduate transfer Josh Jackson. Jackson has thrown for 541 yards this season and seven touchdowns and leads one of the hottest offenses in college football. Temple knocked off Bucknell in their season opener, and has had plenty of time to prepare for the Terrapins. The Temple Owls have always prided themselves on having a terrific defense, but they are in for a real test in this game.Look for Josh Jackson to have another monster game at QB for Maryland, and the smart bet is the Terrapins -7.5 over the Temple Owls in week three.

Stanford Cardinal at UCF Knights -7.0:

The University of Central Florida has finally landed a power-five conference matchup this season as they host the Stanford Cardinal in week three of the regular season. UCF has been one of the best regular season teams in recent seasons, but this will be their toughest matchup. Stanford comes into this game with a record of 1-1 after suffering a horrible loss to rival, USC, last weekend. UCF freshman quarterback Dillon Gabriel has been extremely impressive in running the Knights offense this season, having already thrown five touchdown passes. Stanford is really struggling to find some offense this season having a ton of their players drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cardinal are coming into this game off of a blowout loss to rival USC, and they just don't look like a great team this season.UCF is going to use this win as a springboard to another terrific season in hopes of reaching the College Football Playoffs. Bet the UCF Knights -7.5 over the Stanford Cardinal in this game.

Clemson Tigers -25.5 at Syracuse Orange:

The biggest game of the weekend was supposed to be the Clemson Tigers at the Syracuse Orange, but this game looks like a huge mismatch on paper. Clemson has rolled out to a 2-0 start, with a win over highly-ranked Texas A&M. Syracuse came into the season ranked in the top-25, but quickly fell out of the rankings after a blowout loss to the University of Maryland. Clemson has one of the best offenses in the country led by quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne. Syrcause just doesn't have the weapons to keep up with the Tigers in this game, and this one could be over in a hurry.Bet the Clemson Tigers -25.5 over the Syracuse Orange in this game.
