College Football Picks NCAAA Week 3 - Alabama vs Duke: The #1 Crimson Tide has one more college football picks tune-up before starting the rugged SEC conference schedule against Duke University at Duke – the only question is can they cover the spread in this week 3 college football picks contest? Las Vegas odds have placed the University of Alabama as -24½(-110) point college football picks road favorites against the Blue Devils.
Alabama (2-0) is expected to get a big boost back for this collegge football picks match-up in 2009 Heisman Trophy winner running back Mark Ingram and defensive end Marcell Dareus. Not that the Crimson Tide will need the extra ammunition in their NCAA week 3 college football picks contest against Duke.
Alabama has completely dominated its first two opponents this college football picks season, winning by a combined score of 72-6, including a 24-3 college football picks victory over Penn State last weekend. Senior quarterback Greg McElroy has been brilliant thus far and sophomore running back Trent Richardson has rushed for over 200 yards filling-in for Ingram. The mostly young Alabama defense, with only two returning starters, has been impressive especially in its stifling of Penn State.
However, Alabama’s gaudy defense statistics may take a hit against Duke.
Duke (1-1) defeated Elon 41-27 and then lost in a high-scoring college football picks match-up, entertaining affair to Wake Forest 54-48. In sophomore Sean Renfree, the Dukes have a quarterback capable of putting-up some numbers. In 2010, he has passed for over 700 yards with 6 touchdowns. His favorite target has been fellow sophomore Conner Vernon who has caught 18 passes for 310 yards and 2 TDs. Renfree and Vernon, though, have never faced a defense like Alabama’s and should be in for an afternoon of trouble.
Alabama avoids any talk of an upset but might have trouble covering the spread in this week 3 college football picks contest if Renfree gets on a roll.
