Florida at Tennessee (-10.5)

Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS

Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, Tenn.

The big 3:30 game this Saturday features SEC foes who have had some iconic battles through the years. Tennessee is a double-digit favorite against Florida for the first time in forever. The 11th-ranked Volunteers, with a win, could move into the Top 10 next week.

Can Florida pull off the surprise upset? Anything is possible.

Wisconsin at Ohio State (-19)

Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET, ABC

Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

Simply, Wisconsin got its legs against a non-major by rolling up 66 points this past Saturday. Meanwhile, C.J. Stroud of Ohio State had more touchdowns than incompletions in the first half as the Buckeyes rolled. The Buckeyes are laying a lot of points here. 

Ohio State is third in the AP poll this week. Can Wisconsin mount some kind of offense on the road?

Arkansas at Texas A&M (-1.5)

Saturday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN

AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas

Do the Razorbacks get caught looking ahead to Alabama next Saturday? First, they travel on the road to face the Aggies, who slowed down the Miami Hurricanes last week. 

Can the Texas A&M defense do it again to K.J. Jefferson this time?

Buffalo (-5.5) at Miami

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Fla.

Buffalo is 2-0 with one of the best defenses in the NFL. The Bills' offense has fired on all cylinders. 

They go up against the Miami Dolphins and the Tua Tagvailoa show. The quarterback tossed six touchdown passes in a comeback win over Baltimore this week.

No one expects Miami to roll up 40 points here, but Miami, with Tyreek Hil and Jaylen Waddle, has a dangerous 1-2 receiving punch.

Green Bay at Tampa Bay (-2)

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, Fox

Raymond James Stadium, Tampa

This may be another one of those odd games as Tampa Bay has won twice but not broken out offensively, quite like expected. 

Does that finally happen this week at home versus Green Bay in the old “Bay Of Pigs”? Do both quarterbacks give us the shootout some are expecting?

Dallas at New York Giants (-2.5)

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN/ABC/ESPN+

MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.

We dive into a Monday night “classic.” 

This battle of NFC East teams expects to go down to the last possession, and with the Giants favored by only 2 points, it makes picking this a challenging tilt.
