The public's favorite college football picks were all over the place last Saturday, ranging from headliners like Alabama vs. Texas to others such as FIU vs. Texas State.

The most popular college football picks against the spread for Week 3 are just as random.

Memphis vs. Arkansas State and Rutgers vs. Temple lead the obscure showdowns — and that's not all, as the card's loaded with lopsided splits.

Overall, the public's piling up on these five betting spreads in Week 3.

Most Popular College Football Picks

1. Rutgers (-18) vs. Temple

2 p.m. ET

It's not every Saturday bettors rush to bet Rutgers, but that's the case in Week 3.

We've logged 83% of the 10,000 and counting wagers on the Scarlet Knights minus the points, the most lopsided split of any spread today. (Check out all the Week 3 betting data here!)

2. Minnesota (-28) vs. Colorado

3:30 p.m. ET

Colorado's been trounced as a double-digit underdog in both games so far, and the public has no problem fading the Buffaloes for a cross-country trip to Minnesota.

The Golden Gophers are pulling 82% of the spread bets as four-touchdown favorites for the late-afternoon, non-conference clash.

3. Ole Miss (-17) vs. Georgia Tech

3:30 p.m. ET

It's more chalk in non-con crossovers, including Lane Kiffin's Ole Miss club, which has outscored its two foes 87-13 through two wins.

Ole Miss vs. Georgia Tech is generating a solid ticket count — 20,000+ bets — but the majority (81%) of the public's backing the Rebels.

4. Memphis (-14.5) vs. Arkansas State

7 p.m. ET

Arkansas State covered a big number last weekend versus Ohio State, but the public is expecting a hangover on the second of a back-to-back roadie.

Memphis is pulling in eight out of every 10 bets against the spread, despite the line creeping up north of 14.

5. Old Dominion (+8.5) vs. Virginia

2 p.m. ET

Old Dominion's the hot underdog catching a bulk of the betting tickets in Week 3.

The Monarchs — who upset Virginia Tech in Week 1 — are getting 79% of spread wagers plus the points among a five-figure ticket count.
