The first few weeks of college football handicapping can be the toughest. Week 1 was tainted with turnovers, scheme changes and teams getting gassed in heavy heat.

As we enter Week 3, we can start to pull the curtain back a little bit.

We’re getting more data on each team and early numbers are out on power success rate, stuff rate, sack rate and havoc. These stats will be a gambler’s best friend, even in this week’s slate, which is mediocre at best.

Be sure and check out our Power Ratings that are updated each Sunday morning, and follow me in The Action Network App to get my bets on Week 4 opening lines.

College Football Betting Picks for Saturday Week 3

All odds above as of Thursday at 11 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users get an exclusive 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).

Maryland vs. Temple

  • Spread: Temple +7.5
  • Over/Under: 64
  • Time: 12 p.m. ET
  • TV: CBS Sports Network

We don’t have a ton of numbers on Temple, which beat Bucknell 56-12 before a Week 2 bye. There is still a lot of unknown for Rod Carey’s team in his first year.
