Week 7 of the college football season was another profitable one for this weekly column. We kept our winning ways going by taking down our Week 7 Long Shot Parlay for $147.46 and Week 7 Same Game Parlay for $75.00.
That leaves us with a Week 7 profit of $122.46 with positive ROI for each of our three parlay cards thus far this season.
There are three parlay options for you to consider for Week 8. Each parlay card is wagered differently based on the odds available and the likelihood of the parlay hitting.
Best CFB Parlay This Week
Two legs of our Week 7 Best CFB Parlay missed last week, and we also wound up losing the CLV participation trophy.
This week, we’ll look at three home favorites with solid odds that should win their games straight-up on Saturday.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Best Parlay Record: 5-3 (+$461.91)
CFB Week 8 Parlay (+219)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit
- West Virginia (-175)
- Georgia Tech (-218)
- Bowling Green (-310)
West Virginia is a good football team against the rush and is 3-0 at home this season. Oklahoma State has trouble putting points on the board, and that’s not getting the job done Saturday.
Georgia Tech is 1-2 at home, but they are coming off their best game of the season with an away victory at Miami. Boston College has difficulties scoring the football and will again on Saturday against an improving Yellow Jackets defense.
Bowling Green should beat Akron in a game with winds of 25mph or more and rain throughout. Akron boasts one of the worst rushing defenses in the country and will have trouble scoring against a stout Falcons defense.
CFB Week 8 Long Shot Parlay Bet
We landed our Week 7 Long Shot parlay for $172.46 plus the $25 stake. That was a welcome relief as this portion of the column hadn’t gone as well as we had hoped.
Our Week 8 Long Shot Parlay bet is a mixed bag with a pair of short away favorites, a total in what will be awful weather in Oxford, Ohio, and a Wisconsin side hoping to avenge a 20-point home drubbing from a year ago.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Long Shot Parlay 2023 Record: 2-6 (+$170.28)
CFB Week 8 Long Shot Parlay (+589)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.25 Units
- Rutgers (-205)
- Akron @ Bowling Green Under 39 (-110)
- Toledo (-130)
- Wisconsin (-130)
Rutgers has one of the best defenses in the country, and it will stifle Indiana’s 125th-worst FBS offense. The Hoosiers’ defense isn’t much better, and Rutgers should notch its first away win of the season.
Akron at Bowling Green will be played in windy, wet weather, and the Zips can’t score the football at all. Bowling Green is 1-1 at home and should send Akron home with their sixth consecutive defeat.
Toledo faces a stout Miami, OH, defense but has enough speed to get the job done on what should be a windy day in Oxford, Ohio. The wind should heavily affect Redhawks quarterback Brett Gabbert, allowing Toledo to escape with a victory.
Wisconsin brings its top 20 defense against an Illinois side having problems scoring the football. Look for the Badgers to avenge last season’s 20-point home loss to the Fighting Illini.
CFB Week 8 Same Game Parlay Pick
We landed all three legs of our Week 7 Same-Game Parlay for $75.00. The Paul Bunyan Trophy will be up for grabs this week when No. 2 Michigan meets rival Michigan State. That will be our featured game for our CFB Week 8 Same-Game Parlay Pick.
Phil Naessens TGD CFB Same Game Parlay Pick 2023 Record: 2-6 (+$75.90).
CFB Week 8 SGP (+800)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.10 Units
- Michigan State +24.5 (-110)
- Over 48 (-110)
- Michigan Over 35.5 (-110)
Michigan might be undefeated, but they are 3-3-1 ATS this season. They are playing in a fierce rivalry against a 2-4 Spartans team with nothing to lose and who would love to spoil the Wolverines’ national title hopes. MSU is 7-3-0 ATS over their past 10 against Michigan, and +24.5 is too many for this game.
I’m on the Over 48 because I believe Michigan will score at least 48 points Saturday night in East Lansing. Wolverines QB J.J. McCarthy is the second favorite to win the 2023 Heisman, and you can bet he’ll be chucking the ball against a mediocre Spartans passing defense.
