When it comes to college football, there are few who deserve the "expert" tag quite like Barrett Sallee. The CBS Sports writer and analyst hosts shows on SiriusXM College, writes for CBSSports.com and appears regularly on CBS Sports HQ as well as countless radio shows across the nation as a guest.
Sallee debuted with SportsLine in 2017 and has delivered in a BIG way. Over the past two-plus years, he is 83-57 in his popular best bets column, including going 4-2 to start the 2021 season! Anybody who has been following him is WAY UP.
Now, he's turned his attention to the Week 2 odds from Caesars Sportsbook (see the latest college football lines for each game this week on our college football odds page) and is revealing his three top plays for Saturday. A parlay on these three picks would return around 6-1.
We can tell you Sallee is backing Texas (-7) on the road against Arkansas.
"Fayetteville will be jumping for this old Southwest Conference rivalry," Sallee said. "That excitement will subside once toe meets leather. Texas' defense looked strong against a very potent and experienced Louisiana offense, and the Razorbacks' passing attack left a lot to be desired against Rice. Emotion won't be enough to keep this one close."
Sallee has also found two other college football picks he loves, including a must-see play in a game where he says the underdog will "pound the rock" to help keep it within the spread. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any college football picks.
