If you like variety than last week was it on my college football parlay picks. In the ultimate sister-kisser I got one of each on my three picks, which in itself is probably harder to do than hitting a three-team winner. Unfortunately crypto sportsbooks don’t payout for that kind of action. Not to be deterred I’ll plug along with more picks as the college football season reaches Week 11 with critical games across the country that are sure to spark a few upsets.
My huge underdog pick pulled off an even bigger upset while my double-digit favorite barely held on to squeeze out a victory. In one of the more entertaining games last week Ole Miss got by Texas AM 38-35 scoring a TD and PAT in the final minutes for the deciding points. That came after the Rebels blew a 14-0 first half lead and a 10-point fourth quarter advantage. And of course I had Ole Miss -3 on my parlay card. I liked the 19-points Army was getting in its matchup with Air Force, but I didn’t think the Black Knights would win the game, let alone by 20 points.
And I should’ve seen the writing on the wall with Tulane as close games have been a trademark. The Green Wave entered last week’s matchup with East Carolina riding a six-game winning streak but they were just 1-4 ATS in their previous five. They overcame an early 10-point deficit to win 13-10 but failed to cover the 17-point spread handing me my first loss in two weeks. It’s time to take a peek at the Week 11 schedule to see where we can make some coin on college football parlay picks.

Some pundits are going to say the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines haven’t played anyone this season and they might be right. But what they’ve done against the teams on the schedule is pretty impressive and given recent developments in Ann Arbor, the program has embraced its role. Let’s just say that with mutual disdain Jim Harbaugh and the NCAA won’t be exchanging Christmas cards. In reality recent allegations of sign stealing against UM is a joke. Every team does it in some form they just don’t get caught or don’t want to be caught by the NCAA.
With that said UM is playing with a massive chip on its shoulder and while Penn State offers a challenge, the Nittany Lions haven’t exactly been a terror against top flight competition. James Franklin is 1-10 against top 5 opponents during his PSU career. While they average 40.2 points, the Lions sputtered against Ohio State scoring just 12 points. And the Wolverines are arguably better on the defensive side of the football. Also, with a balanced attack led by J.J. McCarthy UM can score points allowing them to cover the 4.5-point line.
We’ve seen teams respond to coaching changes in a positive way in the past and the USC Trojans are looking for the same type of reaction from a leaky defense. After allowing at least 49 points in consecutive games USC fired Alex Grinch with something still left to play for. If the D plays just slightly better Caleb Williams and the offense have enough firepower to hang with the Ducks making those 15.5 points an inviting risk.
Every wager is a risk but my final parlay pick comes with some added danger. The Cowboys are coming off a huge win over rival Oklahoma and there’s definitely the possibility of a letdown. OSU has just gotten better, though, as the season progressed winning its last five games taking out Big 12 heavyweights Kansas State, Kansas and OU in the process going 5-0 ATS in that span. I thought the line of OSU -2.5 was low so I jumped on this game since UCF is struggling in its debut season in the conference losing to those same three heavyweights during a recent 5-game slide.
