3-Game Parlay Winner To Start Your College Football Season Off On The Right Foot
Football parlays are one of the gambling wonders of the world.
Nobody knows the full secret, that’s for certain, but while it’s easier to win two – you can start being swept into a barrel-over-a-waterfall financial disaster that is four games (or more) – the sweet spot, seemingly, is three.
So, from here on out, each week, I’m gonna give you a three-game parlay that you should consider.
We’ll see how it goes and, if this spins out of control south quickly (think Florida), I’ll start taking suggestions from readers.
I’ll post my true record (some “experts” … eh, bollocks) because for reals, let’s see how we do.
No refunds, though.
Here we go. The spreads are courtesy of our friends at DraftKings, which is offering all kinds of great odds and goodies.
First up. I’ll lead with the best bet.
Nebraska -13 over Northwestern (-110)
When that spread first popped up, I paused.
Realizing that the game will be played in Dublin, as in Ireland – not Ohio, which would make much more sense (look it up) – I came to the conclusion (concussion?) that, damn, wish I was gonna be there.
I was going to make a joke about which team that drinks the less leading up to the game is most likely to win but figured I wouldn’t. You can take a guess on which team that is.
Here’s the deal on these squads: Looking back at how each ended their seasons a year ago, there is a stark disparity.
Sure, both lost their last five games, but look at the scores.
The Cornhuskers lost to Iowa 28-21, at Wisconsin 35-28, at Ohio State 26-17, against Purdue 28-23 and at Minnesota by a score of 30-23.
Point is, they didn’t score enough points. But, in all of those games.
Meanwhile, here’s what Northwestern did in its last five games. Spoiler alert: Bad losses.
The Wildcats were beaten by Illinois 47-12, Purdue 32-14, Wisconsin 35-7, Iowa 17-12, and Minnesota 41-14.
Cheesus. Not great.
The Cornhuskers, with former Texas quarterback and four-star recruit Casey Thompson “going to be the guy,” according to coach Scott Frost, leading Nebraska’s offense … yeah gonna be beter and gonna cover this.
Prediction: Nebraska 30, Northwestern 13
Utah State -27 vs. Connecticut (-110)
We’ll get to this one quick and easy: Does anyone believe that UConn, a football program that might not even be around in the next few years, will have any interest in being in Logan, Utah, on a Saturday afternoon, to play a good Aggies squad in a game that is essentially meaningless to the Huskies?
No, they will not.
The spread is a bit steep, I’ll grant you that, but USU is gonna clobber them.
Prediction: Utah State 42, Connecticut 10
Oregon +17.5 (-100) vs Georgia at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Yeah, it’s basically a home game for Georgia, but the defending national champions lost a ton of talent to the NFL this past year.
Will they still be great?
Just like Alabama, the Bulldogs annually reload. Next man up and all of that.
However, that spread is too high.
Dan Lanning, who was the defensive coordinator for the aforementioned defending national-champion Bulldogs, is now the head honcho for the Ducks and he’ll know how to scheme.
There will be a huge pride factor in this one and Oregon’s athleticism and speed will also be a factor as the Ducks find a way to keep up the pace. This will be closer than you think. I think. Maybe. Yup. Here’s the score:
Prediction: Georgia 28, Oregon 24
Final note: Forgot to mention … take the UNDER on Nebraska-Northwestern (50).
