My parlay bet on college football using bitcoin came so close to paying off I could almost taste it. It feels like on a matter of time before I hit a winner and Week 4 of the season is as good a time as any to get started. I missed a three-team winner by three points, which only makes the loss more painful. But we know the risks when betting a parlay with one loss on the ticket making it a loser. Still, one stinking field goal. The loss came in the matchup between Kansas and Nevada when I backed the OVER against the total of 58. Playing as a 28-point favorite, the Jayhawks sputtered on offense in the first half before pulling away for a 31-24 victory. Given the circumstances surrounding the program it was a good idea to fade Michigan State. Washington cruised to a 41-7 victory laying 16-points. And South Carolina paid off staying within the 27-point spread in a closer than expected 24-14 loss to No. 1 Georgia. After hitting two on a three-team parlay it’s time to hit them all in Week 4 of the college football season.

Hugh Freeze has turned the program around at Auburn, at least at the start of the campaign with the Tigers boasting a perfect 3-0 record. The offense has taken a significant leap under Michigan State transfer Payton Thorne averaging more than 39 points. The damage came against lesser opponents UMass and Samford, but scoring 104 points combined in those games is something we didn’t see under the previous regime.
And the Tigers have continued to play stellar defense allowing an average of 12.3 points in its season opening winning streak. The competition level rises for both teams, though Texas AM was gutted 48-33 by Miami in Week 2. The Aggies allowed Canes QB Tyler Van Dyke to throw for 374 yards and five TDs in that loss. After splitting time with last year’s starter Robby Ashford, Thorne emerged with a standout performance against Samford completing 24 of 32 for 282 yards with an additional 123 yards and two TDs on 11 rush attempts. That dual threat will present problems for the Aggies defense allowing Auburn to stay within the 8-point line.
Maybe Florida State was looking ahead to this week’s matchup with Clemson, or maybe they’re a little overblown by most experts. Don’t get me wrong the Noles are a fine team, but barely getting by BC as a 27.5-point favorite was an eye-opener. It wasn’t so much the narrow 31-29 victory as it was how the Noles crumbled nearly blowing a 21-point second half lead. They also got plenty of help from the Eagles, who committed 18 penalties, including one on a critical third-down stop that extended an FSU drive and allowed them to run out the clock.
An opening game 28-7 loss to Duke was enough to dampen the spirits of Clemson backers, though the Tigers played what Dabo Swinney called their most complete game of the season in a 48-14 win over FAU last week. Cade Klubnick accounted for four touchdowns and the Tigers forced four turnovers. Clemson isn’t ready to hand over the reins of the ACC and they are a rare home underdog. Using their loss to Duke to fly under the radar a bit, the Tigers are a strong upset pick having beaten FSU in each of the last seven meetings. And backing them on the moneyline is a smart move.
Taking on three Power 5 programs in their first four games isn’t ideal and Hawai’i had a hard time stopping Vandy, Stanford and Oregon. They were able to score some points getting 28 against the Dores and 24 against the Cardinal. They should be able to dent New Mexico State’s stop unit that surrenders an average of 6.1 yards per play. Games between the programs have historically been high scoring with an average point total of 75.4 in the previous five meetings with four of them cashing the OVER.
