Our college football consultant shares his round robin parlay that he’ll personally be wagering on with his college football picks. Go inside to read exactly why he loves these selections.

College Football Round Robin Parlay
The upcoming paragraphs detail three of my 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.

 

Pittsburgh vs. Georgia Tech 12:30 PM ET
Here’s my question to you. Why is Georgia Tech a favorite against any ACC opponent right now? The Yellow Jackets have lost four games in a row, and they’ve been decimated by injuries to their all important running back position. Their Georgia Tech defense certainly hasn’t picked up the slack, allowing an average of 36.3 points and 419.0 yards per game during their current losing streak.

Pittsburgh enters this week with a record of 4-1, has gone 3-0 ATS on the road, and their only loss was a narrow 27-24 defeat at #17 Iowa. The road underdog is clearly the value from where I sit.

College Football Pick: Play Pittsburgh +3.5 (-105) at Heritage

Michigan State vs. Michigan 3:30 PM ET
The #12 ranked Michigan Wolverines are better than a touchdown favorite against #7 Michigan State on Saturday. That certainly seems like a fishy point spread, and a spot in which major sportsboooks are begging you to take the underdog. I’m not falling for the trap and neither should you.

Michigan opened the season with a 24-17 loss at #4 Utah. Since that time, the Wolverines have won five straight games, allowed a grand total of 14 points combined, and shutout each of their last three opponents. Their last victim was 20th ranked Northwestern. They absolutely walloped the Wildcats 38-0, and held them to a paltry 168 yards of total offense.

Michigan State has been the beneficiary of a very soft schedule thus far. Despite starting the season 6-0, they’ve failed to cover the number in any of those contests. They’ve been particularly unimpressive the last two weeks in a narrow 24-21 home win versus Purdue, and last week struggled to put away Rutgers during a 31-24 road victory.

I love the home favorite on Saturday for one of my college football picks. The college football odds on this game speaks volumes.

College Football Pick: Play Michigan -7.5 (-105) over Michigan State at Bovada

Penn State vs. Ohio State 8:00 PM ET
Here’s my simple take on this game. Ohio State is due to absolutely hammer someone. What better time to do so than at home and on prime time television. Granted Penn State has won five in a row. However, look at the teams they’ve beaten. The unimpressive list includes Buffalo, Rutgers, San Diego State, Army, and Indiana. The Buckeyes stout defense will have their way, against a Penn State offensive line that allowed 10 sacks in their season opening blowout loss at Temple.

College Football Pick: Play Ohio State -18 at BetOnline
