2019 College Football Week 3 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on September 10, 2019

We are two weeks into the new college football season, with all the top picks to win the National Championship still sitting unbeaten. That, though, is something you would expect, as the tougher challenges for these teams are still to come in the weeks ahead. For now, we are going to take a closer look at Week 3 of the season. There are always a ton of games to play in college football, which is why we are going to try and break things down for you. We will have a variety of different plays for you to look at, starting out with some college football betting picks against the spread.

2019 College Football Week 3 ATS Betting Picks

Ohio State Buckeyes (-15 ½) at Indiana Hoosiers

The move to land Justin Fields, who entered the transfer portal from Georgia, as their starting QB is beginning to look like a genius move. He has been the dual threat that we all expected, helping the Buckeyes rack up 87 points through their opening 2 games of the season.

Indiana are also coming into this weekend with a perfect 2-0 records, but when you consider that they have failed to pick up a win in 10 attempts against Ohio State, their chances of staying perfect seem slim indeed. The Buckeyes are just 3-7 ATS in those 10 games, but I think they improve upon that here.

  • Buckeyes are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against Indiana
  • Buckeyes are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games played on a Saturday
  • Hoosiers are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games played in week 3

Air Force Falcons at Colorado Buffaloes (-3 ½)

This is only the second game of the season for both of these teams, with both also covering the spread in their opening games. While that may make this one seem like a bit of a toss-up, there are some things to consider. The Air Force Falcons have been money in Week 3 of the season, covering the spread in 7 of their last 8 attempts in that week of the season.

That said, the Colorado Buffaloes are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against teams form the Mountain West. Colorado have home field advantage and the spread is manageable, which is why I am on Colorado.

  • Falcons are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games played in week 3
  • Buffaloes are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games
  • Buffaloes are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games at home

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Louisville Cardinals (9 ½)

It has been a bit of a wobbly start to the season for both of these teams, with Western Kentucky and Louisville coming into this weekend with matching 1-1 records. If there is one difference to be found, it’s that the Cardinals have covered the spread in both of their games this season, including covering as a 19-point dog against Notre Dame in the opening week.

The Louisville Cardinals are favorites at the latest College Football Week 3.

The Hilltoppers are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Week 3 games, while Louisville are a stellar 11-4 in their last 15 games played in Week 3 of the season.

College Football Week 3 Betting Trends

  • Hilltoppers are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games
  • Hilltoppers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in week 3
  • Louisville are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games

Oklahoma Sooners (-23) at UCLA Bruins

It has been a horrendous start to the season for the 0-2 UCLA Bruins, but don’t expect things to get any easier this weekend. While the Bruins are at home, they will be welcoming in an Oklahoma Sooners team that already looks like a National Championship contender.

Jalen Hurts has fit in very nicely under center, helping the Sooners rack up 119 points in their opening two games of the season. The Bruins are having problem scoring when they have the ball, so I don’t see them putting up too much of a fight on Saturday night.
