Expert Picks Podcast: Week 3 Against The Spread
Tom Fornelli, Jerry Hinnen and Chip Patterson discuss the CBS Sports Expert Picks. Alabama-Texas A&M, UCLA-Nebraska, OSU-Cal, Ole Miss-Texas, and more Top 25 action.
Alabama Crimson Tide enters College Station favored to win in the revenge game against Texas A&M Aggies , but if you do side with the Tide, do you foresee a close game?
The entire CBSSports.com panel of experts -- Dennis Dodd, Bruce Feldman, Jeremy Fowler, Tom Fornelli, Jerry Hinnen and myself -- has picked Alabama to win straight up, but there is disagreement regarding that 8.5-point spread.
