NCAAF Betting: 2020 Parlay Picks for Week 9

Posted by Derrick Harper on October 26, 2020 in

In Week 9 of the College Football season, we have some very interesting matchups. When looking at spreads, we’ve come up with three games that we think you can put into a parlay, and you’ll be very happy with the end result! Let’s break down each of these three games so you can go ahead and bet against their NCAAF odds.

2020 NCAA Football Week 9 Parlay Picks

Ohio State Buckeyes (-11) at Penn State Nittany Lions

Midway through the second quarter on Saturday, Nebraska was tied with Ohio State at 14. At that point, the Buckeyes decided that enough was enough, and they went on a huge run. Justin Fields led the Buckeyes to a 52-17 win over Nebraska.

Ohio State had to replace seven starters on defense, and it looks like the replacements picked up where last year’s group left off. The defense struggled against the run, but it was able to hold Nebraska to 160 yards in the air.

Coming off a controversial loss to Indiana on a two-point conversion in overtime, we don’t know how Penn State will come back. Will the Nittany Lions be up for the challenge, or will they still be devastated by last weekend’s loss? Without fans, Penn State will lose their huge home-field advantage.

This one could go a long way in determining who will represent the Big Ten East in the Big Ten Championship Game. If Penn State wants to have a shot at being in that game, it will need to play well on Saturday.

We think Ohio State is the better team here, and without fans at Beaver Stadium, it will beat the Nittany Lions by at least 14.

Memphis Tigers at Cincinnati Bearcats (-6.5)

Memphis is 3-1 in the American Athletic Conference, with its only loss coming by a field goal to SMU. Cincinnati is undefeated and has been steamrolling its opponents.

In this rematch of last year’s AAC title game, both teams will be looking to prove that the conference is a threat to put a team into the College Football Playoff this year.

Cincinnati led SMU 14-10 at halftime. It then took over the second half and went on to beat the Mustangs 42-13.

Cincinnati has shown the nation that it can contend for a playoff spot. The Bearcats have a powerful offense and a defense that can hold its own.

Memphis can score, but it also gives up a lot of points. Cincinnati is the class of the AAC, and it will prove it again on Saturday, beating Memphis by at least two touchdowns.

Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (-25)

We know that 25 points are a lot, but Michigan looks like this could finally be the year that Jim Harbaugh puts things together. In Michigan’s 49-24 victory over Minnesota, Joe Milton looked like the dual-threat quarterback that Harbaugh has been after for years, and the Wolverines defense looked like a very good unit.

Michigan State didn’t start the Mel Tucker era off well, as it was beaten at home by Rutgers. The Spartans didn’t look like a team that was ready to play as they were plagued by mistakes, including seven turnovers, and looked lost at times.

Michigan is the real deal this season. It will take advantage of Michigan State being down and put the pedal to the metal. The Wolverines will win this one by 28.
