  • College football season is hitting its September stride with some marquee conference and nonconference matchups in Week 3.
  • We've been covering those games all week, and have compiled everything bettors need to know in this handy cheat sheet.

Betting college football in the fall isn’t really a marathon or a sprint. It’s somewhere in the middle. The 800-meter? Let’s go with that.

We’re starting to get more data on each team, so good betting opportunities will arise in the coming weeks. You want to have some sense of urgency to take advantage, but we’ve still got a long way to go, and bankroll management is crucial in mid-September especially.

Week 3 is when conference matchups should start to get a little more interesting (don’t let us down SEC), while blue bloods that don’t meet often still give the slate a fresh look (thanks USC-Texas).

Here is everything you need to know to bet Week 3 — game guides, staff picks, trends, tips and so much more.
