Now we’re rolling.
With both college football and the NFL underway, we’re officially in it now.
Yes, the NFL returned last week, but because Week 1 odds had been available since May, there wasn’t much urgency for bettors to spend time and resources handicapping professional over college football.
But that won’t be the case anymore, as bettors will be pouncing on early odds value for the rest of both respective seasons.
And when it comes to college football’s Week 3 slate, these three games are already attracting oodles of professional betting action.

Oklahoma vs. Nebraska Pick

Oklahoma vs. Nebraska odds movement has been a bit crazy this week.
The Cornhuskers are off to such a poor start that they fired head coach Scott Frost shortly after last weekend’s loss to Georgia Southern.
Now, Frost’s firing isn’t surprising in the least, but the fact that the school could have saved $7.5 million in buyout money if it waited until Oct. 1 speaks volumes.
Nebraska clearly wanted Frost gone, so much so that money didn’t matter.
On the other hand, respected bettors are buying Nebraska for Saturday’s game against Oklahoma.
