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 three years, he is 105-89 in his popular best bets column. Anybody who has been following him is WAY UP.

Now, he's turned his attention to the Week 0 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 of these three picks would return around 6-1. 

We can tell you Sallee is laying the points with Illinois against Wyoming in a 4 p.m. ET matchup on Saturday. That line opened at Illinois -9.5, and is now up to -14.

"The Cowboys were decimated by departures, including stud receiver Isaiah Neyor," Sallee said. "Plus, the entire left side of the offensive line has to be rebuilt. The Illini, on the other hand, have an established transfer quarterback in Tommy DeVito who isn't going to be shocked by anything that the Cowboys throw at him. The combination of DeVito and established offensive skill players will force Wyoming into a shootout ... and it isn't built for that."

Sallee has also found two other college football picks he loves, including one double-digit underdog who he says will have a chance to pull off a SHOCKING early-season upset! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any college football picks.
