College Football Week 14 Parlay Picks

It’s always a challenge to find the right team to back in Championship Week in College Football. That’s why it’s called Championship Week. But I am up for the job.

Alabama battles Florida in the SEC Championship while USC takes on Stanford in the Pac 12 Championship. Also this week is a none-championship game between State of Texas rivals Baylor and the University of Texas in Austin. Keep reading for this week’s 6-Team Bonus Parlay Pick.

College Football Week 14 Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • Alabama -17
  • Stanford -4

 

What: No. 18 Florida Gators (10-2) at No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1)
When: Saturday, December 5, 2015
Kickoff: 4:00 PM ET 
Where: Atlanta, GA
Stadium: Georgia Dome
Weather: N/A
Spread: Alabama -17
Moneyline: Florida +485 vs Alabama -833
Game Total: 40.5
Watch: CBS
Stream: CBS Sports
Listen: Florida vs Alabama

The reason that Alabama is such a huge favorite is because Florida’s offense has gone south. The Gators scored only 9 points when beating Vanderbilt 9 to 7 on Nov. 7. They scored only 20 against Florida Atlantic in a 20 to 17 win 2 games ago. They could muster only 2 points against Florida State in a 2 to 27 loss in The Swamp in their last game.

Alabama’s defense might be the best in the nation. The front 7 is definitely the best in the nation since it allows only 78.9 rushing yards per game, tops in the country. Since Florida QB Treon Harris completes only 53.7% of his passes and has thrown only 8 TDs to 4 interceptions, you have to figure that Alabama will dominate on the scoreboard.

Pick: Alabama

What: No 7 Stanford Cardinal (10-2) at No 24 USC Trojans (8-4)
When: Saturday, December 5, 2015
Kickoff: 7:45 PM ET 
Where: Santa Clara, CA
Stadium: Levi’s Stadium
Weather: 59° F | A Mixture of Sun and Clouds
Spread: Stanford -4.5
Moneyline: Stanford -200 vs USC +170
Game Total: 60
Watch: ESPN
Stream: Wacth ESPN
Listen: Stanford vs USC

Don’t be fooled by USC’s 40 to 21 win over UCLA. The Bruins have no defense to speak of. USC just took advantage of that fact.

Football handicappers should be more impressed by Stanford’s 38 to 36 win over Notre Dame in their last game. The Cardinal managed to beat one of the top teams in the nation, a squad that just 2 weeks ago was ranked in the Top 4. Stanford beat USC 41 to 31 earlier this season. If anything, the margin of victory should be higher in this matchup. Expect Stanford to roll over a Trojans’ team that might be somewhat flat after beating the hell out of their Los Angeles rivals this past Saturday.

Pick: Stanford

College Football Week 14 Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • Alabama -17
  • Stanford -4
  • Baylor -20

What: Texas Longhorns (4-7) at No. 12 Baylor Bears (9-2)
When: Saturday, December 5, 2015
Kickoff: 12:00 PM ET 
Where: Waco, TX
Stadium: McLane Stadium
Weather: 60° F | More Sun Than Clouds
Spread: Baylor -20
Moneyline: Texas +685 vs Baylor -1429

Stream: Watch ESPN
Listen: Texas vs Baylor

20 points seems like a lot, but Baylor should cover this spread. The 21 to 28 loss to TCU occurred in overtime in the driving rain when Baylor couldn’t convert on a 4th and 1. The Bears actually played well enough to beat TCU in that game.

Longhorns Coach Charlie Strong has one foot out the door. He told the Texas Alumni that he’d recruit most of his players from Florida. Now, the job at Miami is open. Where else would Strong want to go? Texas has lost 3 out of their last 4 games. They’ve also gone 1 and 3 ATS in their last 4. Baylor rolls.

Pick: Baylor
