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.

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.
