FOX Sports Betting Analyst
We earned a banana split last week, but a slightly profitable one thanks to the Dolphins cashing a +140 moneyline bet against the forever-overrated Chargers.
Fast-forward to this weekend and the five bets I’ve circled.
Remember, this place isn’t the space for a million picks or five-team parlays, either. These will always be the games I love the most.
Let’s go to work.
All times ET
No. 19 Oklahoma (-28.5, O/U 60) at Tulsa (3:30 p.m., TV ESPN 2)
I missed at 28 as some bad quarterback news at Tulsa entered the market late Thursday night and the line crossed through that key number. I hate when bad news doesn’t wait until Friday or Saturday.
In all reality, Oklahoma either wins this game by 17 or 40, so I’m not too worried about the hook in this specific exercise.
The Sooners are a damn wagon and their offense is good enough to finish most drives with touchdowns. And it’s far from a secret that OU head coach Brent Venables has a lot to prove in year two after a disappointing year one. Oklahoma will have no qualms running up the score against inferior opponents.
PICK: Oklahoma (-28.5) to win by more than 28.5 points
CFB Week 3 Best Bets: Illinois vs. Penn State and Colorado State vs. Colorado
Gambling expert Chris “The Bear” Fallica and former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz break down their best bets of CFB Week 3.
No. 7 Penn State (-15, O/U 48.5) at Illinois (noon, FOX and FOX Sports App)
I’m higher on Penn State than most, but this is a weird spot.
After feasting on West Virginia and Delaware in two straight games at Happy Valley, the Nittany Lions hit the road for the first time. And they’ll finally face a team that has somewhat of a pulse.
Dual-threat Illinois quarterback Luke Altmyer has been a pleasant surprise and Isaiah Williams is probably the best wide receiver to don orange and blue since Geronimo Allison. Expect those two to connect for some big plays downfield.
