Bet College Football Week 3

Florida -29.5 vs. Tennessee, 3:30PM ET

Lane Kiffin could have picked a better team to stifle with when he first signed on to coach Tennessee. Kiffin took plenty of shots at Urban Meyer and the Florida Gators. Now, the Gators have more motivation to beat the Volunteers than ever before. Not to mention the game takes place from the Swamp where nearly 90,000 fans will be breathing down Kiffin’s neck. This game will be a humbling one for Kiffin as we expect Tim Tebow to play an emotional game and lead the Gators to a massive victory.

Texas -17.5 vs. Texas Tech, 8PM ET

In another revenge game, expect the Longhorns to win big over a depleted Texas Tech football team. The Red Raiders still have a high-powered offense and will score points, but will likely struggle to stop the Longhorns on any possession. Texas’ defense should fair better than it did a year ago, playing at home, and we see Texas cruising in this Big XII opener.

Arizona +4 at Iowa, 3:30PM ET

Iowa entered the season ranked in the top 25, but fell out despite winning two games. The Hawkeyes looked sluggish against Northern Iowa, but rebounded with a nice win over Iowa State. Now, the Hawkeyes host unbeaten Arizona and the Wildcats are brining in a fast defense under coach Mike Stoops. We think Iowa’s offense will struggle with the speed of Arizona, while the Wildcats offense will manage a few scoring drives to not only cover the spread, but win the game.

Western Michigan -17 vs. Miami ( Ohio), 7PM ET

Miami has yet to score a point this season and has allowed 90 points. While the RedHawks have played tough teams like Boise State and Kentucky, but Western Michigan has a strong offense, led by quarterback Tim Hiller. Hiller can throw for 300 yards on Miami in his sleep seemingly. We expect the Broncos to play with a lot of enthusiasm at home in the Mid-American Conference opener and be able to limit Miami on defense. Expect the Broncos by a lot, at least more than 17 points.
