  • BookMaker.eu Are you ready for some Week 5 college football parlay winners? College Football Week 5 parlay picks will feature some marquee teams but also include some teams a bit off the radar. We continue to pick more winners than losers, but we just haven’t had the luck of getting them into one parlay that pays big. Hopefully we can change that this week. We won’t change anything this week, as the logic on these parlays is sound and we have been finding some winning teams. We just need to get the luck to get some of them to all come together. We’ll stick with the same parlays; the line move parlay the letdown parlay and the against the rankings parlay. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Last week’s under the radar picks highlighted an important factor when betting on college football. I backed Bowling Green at Mississippi State when the Falcons were +30.5 on the line. By kickoff the number was wagered up an additional point to +31.5. Just in case you don’t think a point matters, this game is all you have to see. Mississippi State won 45-14, which if you do the math is a 31-point margin. So, accepting line changes in your favor or just waiting to place a bet can make all the dif... 

  • BookMaker.eu Are you ready for some Week 4 college football parlay winners? College Football Week 4 parlay picks will feature some marquee teams but also include some teams a bit off the radar. We have had plenty of winning teams over the past couple of weeks, but we just haven’t put them all together into one parlay. Hopefully we can change that this week. We’ll stick with a couple of our parlays, as the line move parlay and the letdown parlay have really been close to hitting and we’ll add a new parlay this week and go against the college football rankings. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu My profit margin dipped a little last week after missing on two of three under the radar picks. The strategy for throwing down on those games was sound, but the teams didn’t come through. It just shows that having success at the betting window week after week is a near impossibility. The key is to win more than you lose and so far I have a 66.7 percent success rate on my picks. The focus of these picks, though, is to highlight games that oddsmakers might overlook or take advantage of a spread or... 

  • BookMaker.eu Are you ready for some Week 3 college football parlay winners? College Football Week 3 parlay picks will feature a number of marquee teams but also include some teams a bit off the radar. We just missed hitting a couple of big parlays last week and the loss by Baylor in overtime really hurt. This week we’ll change things up a big and go with a line move parlay based on some big line moves for Week 3 college football, a letdown parlay where we go against teams coming off a big win last week and we’ll come right back and do another three-teamer using ESPN’s FPI power rankings. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Entering Week 3 of the college football season I look to continue the heater I’m on after the first two weeks. Going 5-1 on my under the radar picks has been profitable, but as we all know it’s difficult to maintain that kind of success at the betting window for an entire season. The focus of these picks, though, is to highlight games that oddsmakers might overlo... 

  • BookMaker.eu Are you ready for some Week 2 college football parlay winners? College Football Week 2 parlay picks will feature a number of marquee teams but also include some teams a bit off the radar. Week 1 was exciting in terms of the college football action, but only one of the parlays came through. This week we’ll change things up a bit and go with three different parlays. We’ll go with a marquee parlay that we’ll call Lay the Wood that features big time teams, a longshot parlay that features three teams with a realistic chance to pull the upset and we’ll try something new and put together a parlay using ESPN’s FPI power rankings. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We’re off and running with the 2022 college football season entering its second week. And if our under the radar picks from last week are any indication it’s going to be a good year. Things will get more difficult from here on out now that we have an idea of what some of the clubs look like. Alabama looks like a national championship team and the Georgia Bulldogs... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2021 season was a disappointing one for the Clemson Tigers. For the first time in six years, the Tigers failed to win the ACC, and they failed to make it to the College Football Playoff too.Clemson is out to show that last year was an aberration, and the oddsmakers believe the Tigers will have little trouble with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Week 1.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The only matchup between Top Five teams in Week 1 of the college football season will pit Notre Dame against Ohio State. The Buckeyes are seen as national title contenders this season, while the Fighting Irish are expected to take a step back after Brian Kelly left for Baton Rouge.

    ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The first week of the college football season is finally upon us. We had a little taste of what’s to come over the next three months with Week 0 last Saturday, but this will be the first full week of action. There will be games on five straight days starting on Thursday night, and there’s no better way to spend Labor Day Weekend than with college football.

    ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2022 college football season gets underway for real this week with a plethora of games and some colossal matchups dotting the Week 1 schedule. Fans got a taste of the pageantry and excitement last weekend, but nothing compared to what’s on tap with all of the preseason top-25 squads in action.Arguably the biggest game of the week takes part on Saturday night ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Northwestern Wildcats will visit Ireland. But it’s not a vacation. Instead, it is the Big Ten Conference opener for each team at Aviva Stadium in Week Zero CFB action on FOX.Normally college football teams feast on a cupcake to start the season. Certainly, they do not want to open up with a league game against a difficult opponent, especially in the increasingly tough Big Ten Conference. But TV rules, and if the networks say, “play in Ireland in Week... 

  • BookMaker.eu After three bad years, Chip Kelly finally had a breakthrough season in 2021. The UCLA Bruins went 8-4 last year, but Kelly still has yet to lead this program in a bowl game as they had to cancel their Holiday Bowl appearance due to a COVID outbreak. Now, the question is whether or not Kelly can continue to move this program forward. The Bruins are seen as the third-best team in the Pac 12 South by most analysts, behind a strong Utah and a resurgent USC under Lincoln Riley.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Lincoln Riley is looking to take the Pac 12 by storm. USC has had a very difficult time reaching the heights that Pete Carroll took the Trojans to in the mid-2000s, but Riley has the potential to change all that in a hurry. Unlike Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian, and Clay Helton, Riley has already proven himself on a national stage, dominating the Big 12 during his time with Oklahoma. The Trojans enter the year as slight favorites to win the Pac 12 ahead of Utah and Oregon, as expectations are high... 

  • BookMaker.eu Jimbo Fisher has laid down the gauntlet in College Station. Texas A&M signed the best recruiting class in college football back in February, landing eight five-star recruits and 20 four-star recruits. Expectations are high for the Aggies coming into the 2022 season after Texas A&M beat Alabama last year, but it might take a season or two for the Aggies to put it all together. The Aggies are very young on both sides of the ball and return just 10 starters from 2021.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The most overrated program in college football over the last 12 years has been Texas. The Longhorns have not finished the season with a higher ranking than their preseason ranking since 2008, and they have just one 10-win season since they lost to Alabama in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game. Although Texas went 5-7 and 3-6 in Big 12 play last year (including an embarrassing home loss to Kansas), the Longhorns are once again being heralded as one of the favorites to win the Big 12. Obvious... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Michigan Wolverines won their first Big Ten title in 17 years last season. Jim Harbaugh was finally able to beat rivals Ohio State, and the Wolverines made the College Football Playoff for the first time. This team is going to take a step back in 2022 though without standout defensive end Aidan Hutchinson and star linebacker David Ojabo. Hutchinson and Ojabo combined for 25 of Michigan’s 34 sacks last year, so this defense won’t be nearly as disruptive as it was in 2021.... 

  • BookMaker.eu After five straight 10-win seasons, Brian Kelly departed South Bend. Kelly leaves Notre Dame as the winningest coach in program history, and he was easily the most successful coach the Fighting Irish have had since Lou Holtz. Former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman has some big shoes to fill in replacing Kelly, and this is the first time the 36-year-old has been a head coach. We will find out just how far along Notre Dame is early in the season when the Fighting Irish head to Colu... 

  • BookMaker.eu No program has seen a bigger shakeup this offseason than Oklahoma. Lincoln Riley left Norman for USC in November, and he took starting quarterback Caleb Williams and several other players with him to Los Angeles. Riley took some of Oklahoma’s top recruits from this last cycle too, leaving a very bitter taste in the mouths of fans that had rooted for the Sooners over the last five years.Brent Venables is the new head coach of Oklahoma. Venables was the defensive coordinator here under Bob Stoops ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We saw the Clemson Tigers come back down to Earth a little bit after a disappointing 2021 campaign. Clemson made the College Football Playoff six straight years from 2015 to 2020, and the Tigers played for the national championship four times in that stretch. That put the program on the same level as Alabama, but the Tigers took a big step backwards last year with a 9-3 record i... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off their first national championship in over four decades. Georgia rode one of the best defenses in the history of college football to the title last year, and the Bulldogs finally knocked off Alabama when it mattered most. Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs have the third-lowest odds to win the national championship this season behind Alab... 

  • BookMaker.eu Nick Saban has built the center of the college football world in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Crimson Tide have played for the national championship nine times over the 15 years that Saban has been in charge of the program, and Alabama has won six national championships. They have played in six of the last seven College Football Playoff National Championship Game... 

  • BookMaker.eu College football is a supremely unique sport to bet on. In a College Football season, one loss can ruin a team’s season. There is not the margin for error that pro sports teams enjoy. Or college basketball programs, for that matter.For some schools, there is honor in simply making a bowl game or winning one of the lower-tier bowls. For others, the only acceptable goal is makin... 

  • BookMaker.eu Week zero kicks off on Saturday, August 27, 2022, with the full week one to follow starting on Thursday, September 1 and running through Monday, September 5, 2022. With that in mind, this is the perfect time to assess the trends of the teams. And then relate them to their motivational and personnel advantages or disadvantages. We can then evaluate the value of these trends against the betting line....
