College Football Week 9 Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • Oregon +1.5
  • Western Kentucky -23

Oregon at Arizona State
When: Saturday, Oct. 31 at 10:30pm ET
Odds: Arizona State -1.5

Arizona State can look very good, like when they beat UCLA 38 to 23 on the road, or very bad, like when they lost 18 to 34 to Utah in their last. The problem for ASU has always been their ability to get to the quarterback. When they can do that, they often times win the game. When ASU can’t, they end up giving up way more points than they want.

The Sun Devils face a very bad defense on Saturday at home. That’s why more than 60% of handicappers are so far all over the Sun Devils to win this matchup. But ASU’s defense could get burned with regularity against a Ducks’ offense that will have its mojo back on Saturday.

QB Vernon Adams is healthy. He has plenty of weapons to throw the ball to. Almost as important is the fact that Adams and the Ducks’ rushing attack should able to run draws or screens in order to equalize ASU’s blitz. Oregon should win the shootout.

Pick: Oregon  

Western Kentucky at Old Dominion
When: Saturday, Oct. 31 at 12:00 pm ET
Odds: Western Kentucky -23

The Hilltoppers ended up losing 48 to 20 to LSU. But, there was a point in the game where Western Kentucky could have sliced the LSU lead to 7. The Hilltoppers had just secured an onside kick. It looked like they had all of the momentum and was in line to march the football down the field and get the score to within one touchdown.

But, LSU’s defense shut down the Hilltoppers. They continued to fight only to succumb to LSU’s improving offense. Western Kentucky faces a much less formidable opponent on Saturday in Old Dominion. The Hilltoppers still have one of the top offenses in the nation. QB Brad Doughty threw for 325 yards and 3 touchdowns to only 1 interception versus LSU.  

Old Dominion hasn’t covered a spread this season. The Monarchs aren’t going to start covering ATS on Saturday versus Western Kentucky.

Pick: Western Kentucky  

College Football Week 9 Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • Oregon +1.5
  • Western Kentucky -23
  • Stanford -13        

Stanford at Washington State
When:  Saturday, Oct. 31 at 11:00 pm ET
Odds: Stanford -13

Washington State has a very capable offense. The Cougars scored 45 in a 45 to 33 win over Oregon. They put up 52 against Oregon State in a 52 to 31 win over the Beavers. Against Arizona in their last, Washington State outscored the Wildcats 45 to 42.

But, the Cougars face the top team in the Pac 12 in Stanford on Saturday. The Cardinal has won 6 straight games. They have covered the spread in 6 straight and are the unquestioned best team in the Pac 12. It’s going to be hard not to put Stanford into the College Football Playoff if they win out. Coach David Shaw knows this.

Expect Stanford’s excellent defense to do just enough to slow down Washington State while there is no way that the Cougars can slow down Stanford’s offense. Stanford wins easily.  

Pick: Stanford -13
