Top College Football Parlay Picks For Week 2 (September 9th to 10th)


The Week 2 College Football Parlay Picks

  • Louisville (-14.5) at Syracuse
  • TCU (-7.5) vs. Arkansas
  • Tennessee (-10) vs. Virginia Tech

Louisville Cardinals at Syracuse Orange, Friday, September 9, 8:00 PM ET

NCAAF Pick: Louisville (-14.5)Utterly Dominant! That’s the kind of performance Louisville Cardinals’ star quarterback Lamar Jackson had against Charlotte in Week 1, as he totaled 405 yards and accounted for a school-record eight touchdowns (six passing, two rushing) in just one half to lead the Cardinals to a 70-14 victory. Syracuse was equally impressive in Week 1, recording a 33-7 victory Colgate. But even after such a performance, it’s hard to trust that the Orange will be able to keep up with the Cardinals on Friday. I mean, Jackson didn’t play against Syracuse when the two teams met last season, but Louisville still won 41-17, thanks to a strong show from backup QB Kyle Bolin, who threw for 363 yards and three touchdowns. With Jackson being a better passer than Bolin and a proven runner, we could be in for an even bigger blowout. Not to forget, Louisville has gone 5-1 SU and 5-1 ATS in its last six overall meetings against Syracuse. So, yeah, we believe that Jackson and Louisville warrant every hype and value as a 14.5-point favs over Syracuse.

Arkansas at TCU, Saturday, September 10, 7:00 PM ET

NCAAF Pick: TCU (-7.5)No Trevone Boykin, No Problem. In their first game of the post-Boykin era, the Horned Frogs proved to their critics that their offense is still sufficiently loaded with talent, as TCU’s new starting QB Kenny Hill a.k.a “Kenny Trill” showed why he was a highly-regarded Texas A&M transfer by throwing for 439 yards and two TDs and rushing for two more scores in the 18-point win over the pesky Jackrabbits. The Razorbacks, meanwhile, escaped with a one-point win over Louisiana Tech, a home game for Arkansas that could have easily ended in an upset. The most glaring issue in Arkansas’ game was the lack of a running game, as the Backs totaled just 79 rushing yards—way lower than their 116.5 rushing YPG from last season. Having an inexperienced quarterback in Austin Allen didn’t help Arkansas’ cause, either. Now, I don’t expect TCU to fully have its defensive act together by Week 2, meaning Arkansas will be good for some decent points on the board. Even so, with Hill looking as good as ever, and a strong returning group of freshmen contributors from last season in KaVontae Turpin, Jarrison Stewart and Jaelan Austin to support him; you can be sure that TCU will be running up the score here for a big win plus cover. Mind you, the Horned Frogs are 12-3 ATS at home since the start of the 2014 season.

Virginia Tech at Tennessee, Saturday, September 10, 8:00 PM ET

NCAAF Pick: Tennessee (-10)The Vols were wildly unimpressive in their OT win over Appalachian State and that’s a big reason why this line is considerably low. The Hokies weren’t any better, either, as they failed to cover the spread as 32-point home favorites against Liberty, as they won 36-13. But thing is, Tennessee is still a solid team and the poor performance against App. State was largely based on them underestimating their opponents, something we are certain they won’t be doing against Virginia Tech. With Joshua Dobbs and Jalen Hurd taking things seriously and Tennessee’s defense getting its act together, the Vols should be good for the win and spread. FYI, Virginia Tech has dropped four of its last five SU and ATS against the SEC.
