College Football Week 2 Parlay Picks

The first attempt at our weekly college football parlay picks didn’t go exactly like I hoped with a pair of losers on my three-bet ticket. Without having a lot of information heading into Week 1, there were some unknowns and I certainly felt it. I didn’t expect the offenses to erupt for 61 points in Stanford’s win at Hawai’i setting me up with a loss since I backed the UNDER at 59.5. Oh well, it’s still early in the season and there is plenty of time to recover. And with the bigger payout on a multi-bet parlay when sports betting with bitcoin we can get back in the black in a hurry.

Neither team was overwhelming in Week 1, but they did get a win and that’s what matters most, right? Unless you placed a wager on them to cover the spread, that is. Arizona State was laying 34.5 points to FCS Southern Utah in its opener and held on for a 24-21 win running out the last five minutes of the fourth quarter. There was a lengthy weather delay in the contest forcing the game to conclude after 1 a.m. local time. The Sun Devils rebuilt their entire program with new head coach Kenny Dillingham bringing more than 60 new players.

After building a 21-7 halftime lead ASU’s offense went stagnant in the second half behind freshman QB Jaden Rashada prompting Dillingham to say, “We got a lot of crap to fix, but we got it done.” Oklahoma State was a 26.5-point favorite for its matchup with Central Arkansas escaping with a 27-13 victory. The Cowboys yielded nearly 400 total yards but were in control the entire way leading by 20 points late in the fourth quarter. I expect OSU’s offense to be better this week after three QBs played in the opener. Starter Garret Rangel was effective going 10 of 15 for 118 yards and a TD and we will see the roster shortened after nearly everybody played. That’s enough for me to back the Pokes minus the points.

One of the new programs at the FBS level, Sam Houston State put up a good fight in its debut falling 14-0 to BYU. A strong defensive effort and the inability to score had something to do with the total for this week’s matchup with Air Force being set at 38. The Falcons exceeded that number in their 43-7 Week 1 win over Robert Morris gaining 374 yards on the ground.

The Bearkats were a powerhouse at the FCS level and while the first year transitioning to the higher level is typically frustrating, Sam should be able to score points. Three turnovers and going 2 for 14 on third downs didn’t help their cause in Provo. And the Falcons can light it up with the best of them making the total too small in this outing.

I know it was an overmatched FCS team, but the Oregon Ducks put a major hurt on Portland State on Saturday with an 81-7 victory. Yes, that’s right 81 points. The Ducks catch a disgruntled Texas Tech squad after the Red Raiders were upset by Wyoming as a 13.5-point favorite. I typically stay away from games like this since we learned little from Week 1. But Oregon came in with high expectations when several players returned for another season, including QB Bo Nix, who completed 23 of 27 for 287 yards and three TDs.

Oregon got exactly what it wanted in the opener: the starters were out by the middle of the third quarter, nobody got hurt and they put a W in their pocket. The Ducks are focused on winning the Pac-12 and strong wins against Power 5 opponents will also help convince the committee come playoff time. I also think Texas Tech was slightly overrated entering the season, so giving the seven points isn’t a bad idea.
