College Football Week 5 Parlay Picks

Will Texas bounce back from their Week 3 loss to Cal on the road versus Oklahoma State? How will Notre Dame’s defense respond with a new defensive coordinator against the Syracuse Orange? Is California worthy of being a 1-point favorite over ranked Utah? 

College Football Week 5 Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • Texas +3
  • Notre Dame -13
  • Utah +1

#24 Texas at Oklahoma State
When:  Saturday, Oct. 1 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, OK
TV: ESPN
Odds: Texas +3

Analysis: Texas heads to Oklahoma to battle the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a game where the Cowboys have opened as a -3 favorite. Oklahoma State is 2 and 2 SU and ATS on the season after dropping a game 24 to 35 to Baylor on Sept. 24.

The Cowboys could have some trouble against Texas in this game. The Longhorns have a decent rushing attack. It averages 238.3 yards per game. Oklahoma State gives up 148.5 rushing yards on average per game. Baylor rushed for 150 yards against the Cowboys’ D.

I think that Charlie Strong’s team controls the line of scrimmage. They should beat Oklahoma State outright in this battle. If you want to play this game against the spread, jump on it as soon as possible. It’s hard to see the Longhorns not going off the favorites in this game.

Pick: Texas +3

Notre Dame vs Syracuse
When:  Saturday, Oct. 1 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
TV: ESPN
Odds: Notre Dame -13

Analysis: Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly fired his defensive coordinator on Sunday, a day after the Irish yielded 38 points to Duke in a stunning 35 to 38 loss as a -19.5 home favorite. Notre Dame is now 1 and 3 straight up this season. That’s not good enough for Kelly, one of the top coaches in all of college football.

Because of Notre Dame’s issues on defense, the Irish are offering less points than they should be offering to Syracuse in this game. Kelly knows exactly what Lamar Jackson did to the Syracuse defense in Louisville’s 62 to 28 win over the Orange.

Notre Dame quarterbacks Malik Zaire and DeShone Kizer don’t have to be Jackson in order to score at least 42 points against the orange. If Kelly gets the defense on the right path this week, and I think he will, the Irish should roll.

Pick: Notre Dame -13

College Football Week 5 Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • Texas +3
  • Notre Dame -13
  • Utah +1

#18 Utah at California
When:  Saturday, Oct. 1 at 6:00pm ET
Where: Memorial Stadium, Berkley, CA
TV: Pac-12
Odds: Utah +1  

Analysis: After spotting USC 7 points, Utah came storming back in the 4th of quarter of their Pac-12 battle versus the Trojans for a 31 to 27 win. The Utes scored 14 points in the fourth to USC’s 3.

In Week 5, the Utes travel to Berkley to take on the California Golden Bears. The Bears botched a lead over ASU in Tempe this past Saturday to lose 41 to 51 as a +3.5 road dog. ASU wore down Cal’s defensive front seven. The same thing should happen to California on Oct. 1.  

Utah’s offense averages 173.5 rushing yards per game. The Golden Bears don’t have much shot of stopping the Utes’ rushing attack. I think that Utah wins this game outright as a 1-point dog.

Pick: Utah +1
