DraftKings College Football: Week 3

This article is part of our DraftKings College Football series.

Welcome to our Week 3 breakdown of the DraftKings Main Slate. We've got 10 games, and even though we don't get the Arkansas State-Tulsa matchup with a 72.0 implied total (sigh), it's an interesting and varied slate with games to target and games to fade.

Getting Hawaii on the main slate is a welcome sight, but it might not be as sweet of a setup as we would hope. A team averaging 48.3 points per game over three contests along with a 7.9 Yards Per Play clip is disorientating and appealing. I just worry about a bug zapper effect here. Hawaii's game against Army kicks off at 6:00 AM body clock time. We freak out about the Chargers playing a 10:00 AM body clock game every time they head east. This is so much worse. We also have Army's option offense to contend with, and that's a problem. Army's offense is the Run 'N Shoot's kryptonite; the Black Knights run the ball 80.1 percent of the time. If they can sustain drives and play keepaway, our Hawaii shares won't come close to reaching the value we'd hope they would.
