Our college football analyst shares his three team round robin parlay of the week. Go inside to find out who these week 11 picks are, and why he loves them.

Three-Team Round Robin Parlay
The upcoming paragraphs detail three of my better college football picks for Saturday. I’m going to take these three selections and play them in a trio of two-team parlays, otherwise known as a round robin. Quite simply, if you win on two of the three picks, then you walk away with a small profit. The best case scenario of course is winning all three, in which instance, you’ve then hit the jackpot. I never play parlays in any other way, and always refrain from adding a three-teamer to the mix. So let’s get right to it!


Texas vs. West Virginia 12:00 PM ET
Texas has gone 0-3 SU&ATS in their three true road games this season. The more concerning thing to me in regards to those three losses was the lopsided nature of how they occurred. The Longhorns were outscored in those defeats by a combined 112-10, and lost by an average of 34.0 points per game.

West Virginia is a mediocre 4-4 this season. However, their four losses have come against TCU, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma. Those four opponents are currently a combined 33-2 (.943) this season. They were able to snap a four game losing streak during last Saturday’s 31-26 home win over a formidable Texas Tech team, and that victory improved their home record to 4-1.

College Football Pick: Play on West Virginia -8.5 (-105) over Texas at Heritage.

Air Force vs. Utah State 2:00 PM ET
Utah State will be in a sour mood, following an embarrassing 14-13 loss as a 20.5 point favorite at New Mexico last Saturday. Since 1984, teams coming off an away favorite of -20.0 or more straight up loss, versus an opponent with a less than .857 winning percentage went 20-4. The Aggies have gone 2-0 SU&ATS against Air Force since joining the Mountain West Conference in 2013, and won by an average of 25.0 points per contest. They’ve also held the vaunted Air Force triple option attack to a combined 317 yards rushing, and a slender 3.2 yards per attempt.

Let’s not get carried away with the three game winning run that Air Force is currently on. Those victories have come against Fresno State, Hawaii, and Army. Those three teams currently have a combined record of 6-22. As a matter of fact, the Falcons five wins versus FBS opponents this season have come against teams that head into this week with a cumulative record of 11-36 (.234).

According to the college football betting odds at Pinnacle, they provide me with a best combination of number and price pertaining to this specific wager.

College Football Pick: Play on Utah State -1.0 (-103) over Air Force at Pinnacle

Oregon vs. Stanford 7:30 PM ET
The Cardinal have won eight games in a row, and are currently on the periphery of the top four teams that would qualify for the college football playoff on New Year’s Eve. This upcoming game against a quality opponent like Oregon can be used to make a huge statement. At the end of the day, any win will keep them firmly in the mix. However, a decisive victory against a program (Oregon) that’s been so highly successful in recent years, would earn some much needed style points in the eyes of playoff committee, and can catapult the Cardinal up the rankings.

Oregon is still a very good football team, but they’re nowhere near as good as last season’s squad that lost to Ohio State in the national championship game. I’ll have a strong lean toward Stanford making an emphatic statement on Saturday night, and side with the home favorite for one of my college football picks this week.

College Football Pick: Play on Stanford -9.5 over Oregon at The Greek
