College Football Picks and Parades Week 8

It looked like the shine was going to come from Max Duggan and TCU (6-0 SU, 4-1-1 ATS) last week. But instead, Duggan showed why he deserved to be in Heisman’s conversations by helping the Horned Frogs overcome an early 17-point deficit for a two-OT victory. Their defense is a weakness, but they’ve managed to adapt and get the job done in recent weeks.

However, it might not be as easy to do so against Kansas State (5-1 SU, 4-1-1 ATS). The Wildcats don’t have a stellar defense, but they do have one of the best in the Big 12 (#1 turnover margin and passing efficiency defense, #2 in sacks and scoring, n ° 4 for total defense). But perhaps K-State’s best defense is its offense.

The Wildcats have the No. 1 running offense in the conference (No. 8 in the nation). It will be difficult for Maxx Duggan to throw touchdown bombs if he is not on the field.

Neither team returns the ball much; K-State is the only team in the country who has not yet thrown an interception.

Betting Analysis

K-State is good enough to keep this one interesting, but the lack of a passing game will cost them dearly. Their defense and running game will keep it tight in the first half. But Max Duggan will take over in the second half and have this one out of reach early in the fourth quarter.

Our choice: TCU-3.5

College Football Parlays: Week 8 (odds via DraftKings)

Parlays give the house an even bigger edge than straight bets, but they’re fun and give you a chance to win more money. Of course, with this luck comes an increased risk of losing. You can drain your bankroll in no time if you’re not careful. So if you’re going to bet on a college football bet or two, be brief.

Let’s look at some parlays based on the games above.

Parlay No. 1: Syracuse vs. Clemson

  • Syracuse +14
  • Garrett Schrader 245+ passing yards +130
  • Betting odds: +380

Clemson is the better team and should win this game, but Syracuse has enough talent to keep the game relatively close. How? By taking advantage of Clemson’s porous secondary late in the game and scoring a touchdown or two in time (giving Schrader a chance to go over 245 yards for the game).

If you’re a little more pessimistic about Schrader and Syracuse’s passing game, go for 220+ yards at -140 (new parlay odds +255).

A $100 bet at +380 will result in a payout of $480 – your original stake and $380 in winnings.

Parlay No. 2: UCLA vs. Oregon

  • UCLA +185
  • Dorian Thompson-Robinson 280+ passing yards +120
  • Parlay Odds +500

Oregon is overrated and has made a name for itself this season beating weak teams. UCLA faced weak teams, but they also knocked out teams like Utah and USC. How did they do it? Behind the muscular arm of quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson. They will win this game after DTR cut out a lackluster Oregon secondary for a big day.

A bet of $100 will result in a payout of $600 – your stake plus $500 in winnings.

Parlay No. 3: Three-team parlay with point spread

  • Syracuse +14 (-115)
  • TCU -3.5 (+100)
  • UCLA +6 (+100)
  • Betting odds: +647

Syracuse has an outside chance to beat Clemson, but they’re more likely to make it respectable with a touchdown or two in time to win the ATS. K-State is having a great season, but they won’t be able to keep up with TCU’s passing game. It will be a tight game early on with the Horned Frogs retiring late for the win.

As for the Bruins, Dorian Thompson-Robinson will have a day against the Oregon defense and win it by at least one touchdown.

A $100 bet will result in a payout of $747 – your stake plus $647 in winnings.
