Our Staff’s College Football Best Bets for Week 3


  • Game: Arizona State at Michigan State
  • Spread: Michigan State -14
  • Over/Under: 42.5
  • Time: 4 p.m. ET, FOX

After returning a ton of production on defense, Sparty has picked up right where it left off. Two games into the 2019 season, Michigan State leads the nation with an almost unbelievable -0.1 yards per carry. You read that right; it has allowed -6 total yards on the ground through two games.

I just can’t envision Arizona State getting anything going on the ground. If it couldn’t run it against Sacramento State, good luck against the best run defense in the NCAA. But Herm Edwards will try to establish the run anyway.
