Levi's Weekly College Football Week 3 and NFL Week 2 Picks

Last week: (6-7 +575 hit) YTD: 12-8

College Football Week Three

West Virginia (-2.5) v. Virginia Tech, 11:00 AM -110
I was initially leaning on the Hokies to pull off a road upset, but West Virignia’s defense is the best competition QB Braxton Burmeister will have seen up to this point. VT has rolled through its first two games on the heels of good not great QB play and a suffocating defense. Sharp money has bought this line up from a PK, and WVU looks to get over .500 before a matchup with the third-ranked Sooners next week.

Notre Dame (1H -4) v. Purdue, 1:30 PM -115
ND QB Jack Coan has looked great through two weeks, and I expect him to stay hot. The Boilermakers are a quiet 2-0 thanks to bad competition, but they allowed 124 rush yards to UConn last week. ND’s trio of Coan, RB Kyren Williams and TE Michael Mayer should control possession and cover in the first half.

Iowa v. Kent State (U 56) -115
Your Iowa Hawkeyes are a top-5 team but I think this total is a little high. As good as the defense has been, Iowa’s offense has yet to put together an entire half of solid play. That said, the D has accounted for seven turnovers, leading to 37 points. The team has scored 61 points total. This turnover luck is hardly sustainable, and I don’t expect Kent State to see the endzone more than once.

Auburn v. Penn State (O 52.5) -110
I’m expecting points in Saturday’s most prolific matchup. PSU QB Sean Clifford has been efficient this season, and AUB QB Bo Nix has put up borderline Heisman stats against two very bad teams. Both defenses are strong, but this one should come down to the fourth quarter.
