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 98-78 in his popular best bets column. Anybody who has been following him is WAY UP.
Now, he's turned his attention to the Championship Week 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 says to back Houston (+10.5) against Cincinnati in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
"The Cougars have won 11 straight, quarterback Clayton Tune has settled in nicely and they're 2-0 against the spread as 8.5 to 12.5 underdogs," Sallee said. "Plus, it's still hard for me to trust a Bearcats team that, other than the win over SMU two weeks ago, has been a little sketchy in most of their games in the second half of the season."
Sallee has also found two other picks he loves, including a play on a team set to roll to an easy cover that "will impress members of the College Football Playoff selection committee." You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any college football picks.
