College football odds Week 3: Opening lines & odds movement
Patrick Everson

Quarterback Ian Book and Notre Dame, coming off a win but failing to cover against Duke, host South Florida in Week 3. PointsBet USA opened the Fighting Irish as 26-point favorites.

College football odds for Week 3 are on the betting board and already getting action. The ACC dots the list of key matchups, including No. 13 Central Florida facing a Georgia Tech team coming off a road upset of Florida State.

PointsBet USA provided insights on college football Week 3 opening lines, early line movement, sharp money and public betting for this week's matchups.

College football Week 3 odds

These are the current College football Week 3 odds for the premier games on the schedule, as of September 14.



Wake Forest at NC State odds

Opening line
North Carolina State -3, Over/Under 55.5

Why the line moved
PointsBet USA's Patrick Eichner said Monday that the Wolfpack moved to -2.5 this morning on interesting early betting splits. Sixty-five percent of tickets are on North Carolina State, but 60 percent of the point-spread money is on Wake Forest.


(13) UCF at Georgia Tech odds

Opening line
Georgia Tech +7.5, Over/Under 60

Why the line moved
PointsBet USA's Eichner said there was an early move to Central Florida -7, but more to stay in line with the market. Still, an opinion is forming. Ticket count is split 50/50, but about 80 percent of the early money is on UCF.


Charlotte at (11) North Carolina odds

Opening line
North Carolina -27, Over/Under 61

Why the line moved
This line bounced around quite a bit early at PointsBet USA, stretching to 28.5 Monday morning before pulling back to 27.5. Seventy percent of early spread bets and money are on big underdog Charlotte to cover.


(18) Miami at (16) Louisville odds

Opening line
Louisville -1.5, Over/Under 61

Why the line moved
This line is already up a full point Monday at PointsBet USA, with host Louisville 2.5-point chalk. But Miami has its share of takers, landing 70 percent of early money on the point spread, while Louisville is getting 65 percent of early tickets.


Syracuse at Pittsburgh odds

Opening line
Pittsburgh -20.5, Over/Under 50.5

Why the line moved
PointsBet USA moved to Pitt -21.5, thanks to early interest in the Panthers. "All Pitt in this one," Eichner said. "About 90 percent of spread tickets and handle are on the Panthers."


South Florida at (7) Notre Dame odds

Opening line
Notre Dame -26, Over/Under 53

Why the line moved
PointsBet USA's Eichner said this game is similar to Syracuse-Pitt early, with Notre Dame taking 90 percent of tickets and bets by Monday. However, there's not enough money in the pot to move the line yet.


Tulsa at (12) Oklahoma State odds

Opening line
Oklahoma State -22.5, Over/Under 65

Why the line moved
There was limited action and no movement yet on this game by Monday afternoon at PointsBet USA.

College Football Tech Trends - Week 3
Bruce Marshall

Week 3 of the College Football season kicks off on Saturday Sept. 19 and we've identified betting trends and angles for key matchups between FBS and FCS matchups. We also have "Tech Edge" leans on the side or total for each game too.

Saturday, Sept. 19

UL-LAFAYETTE at GEORGIA STATE (ESPN2, 12:00 p.m. ET)

Ragin’ Cajuns on a 17-7-2 spread uptick since early 2018 for Napier.
Panthers struggling as dog, only 4-10-4 in role since 2018.

Tech edge: UL-Lafayette, based on team trends.

FLORIDA ATLANTIC at GEORGIA SOUTHERN (ESPN, 3:30 p.m. ET)

Taggart now at FAU, was only 8-13-1 in 1+ years vs. line at FSU, as his once-gaudy spread success had waned.
Owls covered 5 of 6 on road last season for Lane Kiffin, who posted a 10-4 spread mark in 2019.
GSU didn’t cover opener vs. Campbell, but still 10-4 vs. spread last 14 at Statesboro.

Tech edge: Georgia Southern, based on team trends.

WAKE FOREST at NC STATE (ACC, 8:00 p.m. ET)

This Tobacco Road rivalry series has one of strongest home-team trends in ACC, with host 11-2 vs. points last 13 meetings.
NCS, however, enters 2020 having dropped 10 of last 11 against the number, and only 1-5 vs. points last six at Raleigh.

Tech edge: Slight to Wake Forest, based on recent NCS negatives.
