And just like that we’re on to college football Week 3.

I say this often, but it bears repeating: Winning bets on a slate’s smallest (or least popular) games pay just the same as those on high-profile matchups, and often you’ll see significant odds movement on those less popular matchups.

However, sometimes the stars align, and it’s the big programs also showing as the best bets on a given slate, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing for Saturday’s Week 3 schedule.

With this in mind, let’s detail Saturday’s three sharpest college football spreads, including:

  • Michigan State vs. Miami (12 p.m. ET)
  • Alabama vs. Florida (3:30 p.m. ET)
  • USC vs. Washington State (3:30 p.m. ET)
