Week 3 CFB Picks: Trust Vegas, not your head

The public seems to think so. They love the Bayou Bengals to cover. The last two years this game has been decided by less than a touchdown. Gus Malzahn wears sweater vests. There is a lot of that at the beginning of the college football season as teams shuffle in and out of the AP Top South Carolina and Florida popped up in the poll last week and, poof, now they are gone.

Maybe they'll be back. Of course, we can't call out the voters without acknowledging its own mistakes. Last week's endorsement of Northwestern and BYU look a little silly now that both have lost and the teams they beat in Week 1 are a combined Week 2 of the regular season was mostly status quo in the Top 25, with top teams romping. Two teams -- Arizona State and Oklahoma State -- jumped on board for the first time this season at the bottom.

Let's see if they can hang around longer than the Gamecocks and Gators. But it wastes your bankroll. A 1 and 2 seed 8 team parlay will pay better. This assumes ML odds are available for each game. Sharp books might offer them. These obvious winners could be packaged differently with less favorable odds. Tip Stick to early round straight bets or lower seed parlays. Oddsmakers are well aware which teams are likely to win.

Obvious winning bets will pay nothing and tie up bank roll. Seeding began in Tournament format has changed over the years with gradual inclusion of more teams. The selection committee is comprised of 10 members serving 5 year terms.

Everyone wants to pick seeds to upset 5-seeds and Davidson was a trendy pick for a few upset before seeding came out. Loyola-Chicago, a University I definitely knew was real before Sunday, is one of the trendiest picks for an upset in the first round.

Loyola-Chicago not only covers, but wins outright. This is very relatable and completely influencing my decision. Wolfpack avoid the upset and deserve some Bo-berry biscuits for their work. No seed upset here, Xavier covers too. A fun game, which is usually pretty rare for these types of games, but UNC pulls away in the second half. As far as No. Unfortunately, they are just no match for Michigan.

Michigan pulls away late. Full disclosure -- I have Gonzaga in my Final Four. A favorable early location Boise and a potential seed in the second round. This is going to be an extremely chalky region, but the Jackrabbits are one team I actually like for an upset. I think it helps Ohio State fans immediately hated the matchup, which in turn made me instantly like it.

South Dakota State pulls the upset. I genuinely hate when two non-Power 5 teams get matched up in the tournament. Aztecs are hot, winning 9 in a row. Both the Aggies and the Friars seem like wild cards.

I always like Stephen F. Texas Tech is too much. Wichita State came into the year considered one of the favorites. Murray State is a popular upset pick because they are pretty good at not turning the ball over and they shoot well. Two things you need to do to beat a Bob Huggins team. The Mountaineers squeak by. Jaylen Adams and the St. Bonaventure veteran backcourt could give Florida fits.
