2022 College Football Parlay Betting Picks for the Top Weekend Games of Week 1

2022 College Football Parlay Betting Picks for the Top Weekend Games of Week 1

The first few games of the 2022 college football season are in the books, but this weekend represents the first full week of action. The good news is that you don’t need to wait until Saturday for the games to commence, as there are some pretty good matchups set to go on Thursday and Friday. With so many games on tap, it’s always tough to narrow it down to a few games, especially at the start of the season when there really isn’t much to go on. That said, we are still going to take a shot and put together a trio of parlay picks. Let’s get right to it so you can make your bets against the NCAA Football Betting Lines.

NCAAF Week 1 Parlay Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Analysis

Week 1 SU Parlay – Georgia, Utah, Ohio State

What better way to start the season than by adding the defending National Champions to our parlay ticket. The Georgia Bulldogs will open against the Oregon Ducks in Atlanta in what is essentially a home game. I like them to get off to a winning start.

The Utah Utes are coming off a big season that saw them go all the way to the Big Ten Conference Championship Game. They will be looking to go one better this season, and while a trip to Florida to face the Gators is never easy, I like Utah to get the win.

One of the best games of the weekend sees the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hit the road to face the Ohio State Buckeyes. A lot of pundits have the Buckeyes going to the Championship Game this season, and while I am still on the fence with that, I think they win here.

Week 1 ATS Parlay – Oklahoma State (-20 ½), Virginia Tech (-8 ½), Michigan (-27)

Not only do the Oklahoma State Cowboys tend to put up big numbers, they also make a habit of covering the spread. They are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 overall and should have a relatively easy time of things against Central Michigan this weekend.

I am taking a little bit of a chance with the next one, mostly because Virginia Tech has not been a great ATS bet in road games, going just 3-9 in their last 12. That said, I think 8 ½ is a decent number against Old Dominion.

While 2021 was a very good year for the Michigan Wolverines, they are probably still feeling as though they came up short. I think this team might have a bit of a chip on their shoulder, so I like them to steamroll Colorado State in Week 1.

Week 1 O/U Parlay – Tennessee (U68), Penn State (U54 ½), NC State (O55)

The Tennessee Volunteers are a massive favorite heading into their opening game against Ball State. I think we are looking at a scenario where the Vols open a big lead and start putting some bench guys in. That might mean less scoring in the 2nd half, hence the UNDER.

While it doesn’t always work out as planned, it certainly makes wagering a little easier when the trends seem to align. Penn State saw 6 of their last 7 games overall go UNDER, while Purdue’s last 4 games in the month of September went the same way.

If you are looking for a game with the potential for a ton of offense, look no further than the NC State and East Carolina matchup. Both teams always seem to end up in high-scoring games, which leads me to the OVER.
