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.


Oklahoma State vs. Texas Tech 3:30 PM ET
There’s no denying the explosiveness of the Texas Tech offense. The Red Raiders can score quickly and with a consistent regularity. However, defensively they’re allowing 40 points and 566 yards per game.

Contrarily, Oklahoma State’s defense is an underrated aspect of their team. They’re allowing just 19 points and 316 yards per game. The Cowboys offense is pretty good as well, averaging 40 points and 480 yards per game.

Both offenses will have their way in this contest. It will be Oklahoma State’s defense that will get enough stops at critical times of the game which will ultimately be the deciding difference.

Texas vs. Iowa State 7:00 PM ET
Granted Texas has captured some momentum in their last two games with wins over Oklahoma and Kansas State. Despite those victories, they’re still just 3-4 in 2015. During their two true road games this season at Notre Dame and TCU, the Longhorns were outscored 88-10.

Iowa State has sustained four of their five losses to teams that are currently undefeated. Those losses came to #2 Baylor, #5 TCU, #10 Iowa, and #20 Toledo. They covered against both Baylor and Toledo. They barely missed an ATS win against TCU. I like the home underdog for one of my college football picks.

Vanderbilt vs. Houston 7:00 PM ET
Houston has gone a perfect 7-0 so far this season, and they currently ranked #18 nationally. Their strength of schedule leaves a lot to be desired. Their six wins versus FBS opponents came against teams with a combined 11-37 record.

Vanderbilt has played much the tougher schedule, and the Commodores defense has been pretty good all year. I wouldn’t be shocked at ll if this game goes right down to the wire. According to the college football odds at The Greek, we’ve seen a bit of reverse line movement in this game which tilts toward the underdog. 

College Football Picks: Take Vanderbilt +12.5 at The Greek
