Week 9 of the college football season was an unlucky one, with all three of our parlay cards missing by a single leg.
But Week 10 should be fantastic, with plenty of teams chasing conference championship bowl eligibility and some heated rivals squaring off.
There are three parlay options for you to consider. Each parlay card, including our same-game parlay selection, is wagered based on the odds available and the likelihood of it hitting.
Best CFB Parlay This Week
We lost our Best CFB Parlay for Week 9 when Nevada decided to put points on the board, which is something they hadn’t done all season.
This portion of the weekly column is still profitable, and we hope to bounce back from three consecutive losing CFB Parlay of the Week cards.
This week’s selection features four games involving teams who should win, but either the spread has too many points or the moneyline is too expensive on its own.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Best Parlay Record: 5-5 (+$261.91)
CFB Week 10 Parlay (+308)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit
- Penn State (-345)
- James Madison (-205)
- Washington (-155)
- Western Kentucky (-340)
Penn State should easily defeat Maryland on Saturday. The Nittany Lions have a tremendous rushing defense and have outscored the Terrapins 156-17 over their last three meetings at College Park.
James Madison is 8-0 this season and brings a robust defense. The meeting with Georgia State will be tighter than the six-point spread, but the Dukes should win.
We have a QB duel between Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. and USC’s Caleb Williams in Los Angeles. The Trojans’ defense is awful, and the Huskies will outscore their opponents. Penix is one of the frontrunners in the latest Heisman odds.
Western Kentucky has the joint-third-most takeaways nationally, and UTEP won’t be able to handle the Hilltoppers’ offense, led by QB Austin Reed.
CFB Week 10 Long Shot Parlay Bet
We missed our CFB Week 9 Long Shot Parlay bet and the $25. Utah couldn’t cover and busted our card before it got started.
Week 10 has an Under theme, as four contests involve teams with better-than-average defenses and mediocre-at-best offenses. You can also play each of these games individually and hopefully increase your bankroll.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Long Shot Parlay 2023 Record: 2-8 (+$120.28)
CFB Week 10 Long Shot Parlay (+1228)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.25 Units
- Kansas State @ Texas Under 49.5 (-110)
- Arizona State @ Utah Under 41.5 (-110)
- Charlotte @ Tulsa Under 47.5 (-110)
- Hawaii @ Nevada Under 50.5 (-110)
Kansas State has the 14th-best scoring defense in the college game, and Texas games have ended 2-6-0 to the Under.
Arizona State and Utah are two schools with better defenses than offenses on a cold and rainy Saturday in Salt Lake City.
Charlotte and Tulsa have leaky defenses, but neither offense is good, either. In this American Athletic Conference matchup, 47.5 points is too many.
Hawaii and Nevada should be a snoozer of a game. Neither offense is very good and won’t be able to take advantage of the other’s leaky defense. The Under is 10-0-0 over their past 10 meetings.
CFB Week 10 Same-Game Parlay Pick
We missed our CFB Week 9 Same-Game Parlay Pick last week when Penn State failed to score Over 38.5 points. That was a tough one to take because it was in the bag until the Penn State offense stalled.
This week, we’ll turn to the Purdue vs Michigan game for a small SGP that should be the cherry on top of the sundae.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Same-Game Parlay Pick 2023 Record: 2-8 (+$55.90)
CFB Week 10 SGP (+144)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.1 Units
- Purdue @ Michigan, Michigan -32.5
- Michigan Over 36.5
- Purdue @ Michigan, Michigan 1H -20.5
This correlates well because Michigan is coming off of a bye week, has the best scoring defense nationally, and will stymie Purdue throughout this game.
The Boilermakers’ offense is a turnover machine, and the Wolverines’ offense should enjoy excellent field position throughout this matchup.
Michigan scores 40 points per game and might exceed that in the Big House this Saturday night.
