College Football Week 1 Parlay Betting Selections to Wager On
Utah Utes -2.5
The Utah Utes will have a tough one in Week 1 as they head to “The Swamp” to take on the Florida Gators. Florida was the early favorite, but now the Utes are favored by 2.5 points. Utah has been one of the country’s best unknown programs over the past few years. Utah returns a good portion of last season’s team, including starting quarterback Cam Rising.
Florida is in rebuilding mode under new head coach Billy Napier. Dan Mullen left this program a mess, and Napier is going to have a hard time fixing things quickly. While Florida has done a good job of recruiting, the Gator program still has a ways to go.
While many experts are telling you to take the Utah moneyline, we like the Utes so much that we think they’ll cover and win by at least a touchdown. Either way, you should be safe taking Utah over Florida.
LSU Tigers -3
Brian Kelly will be making his debut as the LSU head coach as the Tigers will play the Florida State Seminoles in New Orleans. Kelly has done a good job of coming in and revamping the LSU program. He has done a good job of recruiting, and has brought some order back to the LSU program.
Florida State has had its fair share of issues. Mike Norvell is now in year 3, and if he doesn’t get something done this season, people will be calling for his job. The Seminoles got off to a poor start last season, but came on strong late in the season.
As for this game, we see a few factors that favor LSU. First off, we’d rather take the SEC school. They have recruiting advantages, and they always seem to have better talent. We also think that Brian Kelly is a better coach than Norvell, and he’ll have his team prepared.
We think LSU wins the game and covers the spread.
Ohio State vs Notre Dame Under 58.5
This one is risky, but hear us out. We know that Ohio State can score points in bunches. Over the past few seasons, scoring wasn’t the issue for Ohio State, it was stopping the other team from scoring. This season, the Buckeyes have brought in Jim Knowles, the former Oklahoma State defensive coordinator, to right the ship.
We think Ohio State will score against Notre Dame. We also think that Notre Dame won’t score much against a talented and athletic OSU defense. With all of that being said, we think Ohio State wins the game 40-14, thus staying under the 58.5. This could be a risky bet, but Notre Dame isn’t exactly a slouch on defense.
