Top College Football Week 10 Parlay Picks

Posted by Peter Boysen on November 3, 2016 in

When you feel confident about a couple of different college football betting picks, why not take advantage of a parlay bet? When both of those wins come through, you make a lot more money than you would have made if you had won the bets separately. We’ve looked at the NCAA football matchups for this weekend, and here are our suggestions for the best parlay bets you can put down today.

Top College Football Week 10 Parlay Picks

American Athletic Conference Special

Temple (-10) over CONNECTICUT / SMU (+3) over Memphis

Temple will run the ball all over Connecticut. The Huskies have not played a competitive game in several weeks now, and it would not surprise me to see a new head coach there next season. Temple has a chance to make some strides in the AAC East, and a big win over Connecticut seems like the right statement. SMU is riding high after a huge upset over then-#11 Houston two weeks ago and a thrilling road comeback against Tulane last Saturday. I like them to continue that momentum when Memphis comes to town.

Spankings in the SEC

#4 Texas A&M (-13.5) over MISSISSIPPI STATE / #9 AUBURN (-26) over Vanderbilt

The Aggies have a lot of motivation to hold onto that fourth slot in the CFP standings, and undefeated Washington is breathing right down their necks. The Huskies travel to Cal to take on the Golden BEars — a game that Washington should win but that Cal could turn into a high-scoring shootout. Texas A&M has a solid running and passing game, while Mississippi State struggles when it comes to slowing down opposing offenses and sustaining drives of their own. Auburn delivered a 56-3 rout of Arkansas two weeks ago, and I don’t think that Vanderbilt has nearly the quality that the Razorbacks do. Yes, this game is on the road, but I like Auburn to make a statement win here with their big matchup against #1 Alabama looming.

Big 12 Karma

TEXAS TECH over Texas / BAYLOR over TCU

Texas did knock off previously undefeated Baylor next week. However, Lubbock is a dangerous place for most teams to play (even though West Virginia and Oklahoma seem to have solved that puzzle). Defense sometimes flies right out the window in games at Jones AT&T Stadium, a develop which would not favor the Bears at all. When Baylor hosts TCU, they get to take out their frustrations about last week’s last-minute loss on a Horned Frog squad that doesn’t even score 20 points a game and can’t get defensive stops when they need them the most.

Big Ten Frustrations

Michigan State over ILLINOIS / #8 Wisconsin over NORTHWESTERN

The Spartans are not at the same level they were last year, when they went all the way to the College Football Playoff semifinals. I expect them to take out some of those frustrations that have come from such experiences as their big loss to Wisconsin on an Illinois team that simply does not have the talent or the schemes to keep up with the Spartans. Wisconsin had a huge opportunity when they took Ohio State to overtime, but they lost that game and now have to hope they can win the Big Ten West and take the title that way. I like them to make a statement against a spunky but undermatched Northwestern squad.
