CFB Week 3 picks: September 16

By Rally Kapz

You can be forgiven if you thought that it may take some time for USC to adjust to Lincoln Riley and vice-versa. So far, so good for the Trojans. They have looked dominant in their two wins to start the 2022 campaign. The Trojans have averaged 53.5 points in its first two games, including posting 41 points on the road against a highly respected Stanford team. The familiarity at quarterback with Oklahoma-transfer Caleb Williams has been evident, as he has clearly hit the ground running, completing 80% of his passes for 590 yards and 6 TDs to start the season. USC can score, that much is clear. The bigger question at this point is the defense. The game against Stanford showed some holes but most came in garbage time late in the game. In my view, the 41-28 score was closer than the game felt and USC was never in danger. The defense will be tested this week, with a Fresno State team that can move the ball led by QB Jake Haener, who has looked good, completing 75% of his passes so far. However, I expect USC will be up to the task and I expect them to be good right out of the gate in this one. They cover the spread here.

I’m going to throw in some moneyline parlays in this space. I know, I know…there’s no better way to separate a bettor from his hard-earned money than by betting on parlays. However, betting also needs to be fun, and college football provides such a huge slate of games each week that some parlay options can become really interesting and fun. At least they are for me! So here goes. Air Force – absolutely rolled past Colorado and Northern Iowa in their first two games. Favoured by 14 on the road against Wyoming this week. UCLA – started slow against Bowling Green in week one but firing on all cylinders with South Alabama coming to town Notre Dame – Stuck with Ohio St. in week one before an embarrassing week 2 effort. Marcus Freeman now first head coach to start 0-3 in school history. Drew Pyne takes over at QB for injured Tyler Buchner. ND will be motivated in front of the home crowd and will get it done vs. Cal. Ole Miss – Team Kiffin is steaming along and will be too much for Georgia Tech. Appalachian State – Upset Texas A&M last week and deserved better vs. UNC in week 1. Gets easier this week with Troy. Expect a win.
