College Football Parlay Week 2

College Football Parlay Week 2

Auburn takes on Clemson, Georgia collides with Notre Dame and Stanford hooks up with USC, but there is no bigger game this weekend than Oklahoma traveling to the Horseshoe to face Ohio State. It’s another pivotal contest involving two highly ranked teams, and the national playoffs could be on the line. Let’s take a look at these two teams, and try and add a winner from another game to score on a parlay bet (odds provided by bovada.lv).

Sooners Out For Revenge

ncaa1

Oklahoma (-7.5) at Ohio State — The No. 2 Buckeyes are a legitimate favorite in this Saturday night matchup. The Buckeyes rolled into Norman, Okla., last season in Week 3 and buried the Sooners 45-24. Ohio State scored 35 points in the first half and put the game out of reach. It was also a huge blow to Oklahoma’s playoff hopes.

What’s happened since then? Ohio State has lost twice, including the national championship semifinal. Oklahoma has reeled off 11 straight wins, including five victories over ranked teams and a Sugar Bowl trophy. Both teams won their season openers — Ohio State trounced Indiana 49-21, while Oklahoma blasted UTEP 56-7. Now, the national spotlight is firmly fixed on Columbus, Ohio.

The Buckeyes return 15 players from last season, including eight on offense. QB J.T. Barrett, who completed 62% of his passes last year, threw for 24 touchdowns against seven interceptions. The No. 5 Sooners have 16 starters back from last season. Nine of them, including the entire offensive line, are back on offense. This talented group is led by Heisman candidate Baker Mayfield, who completed 71% of his passes last season, threw for 40 TDs against just eight interceptions.

Ohio State is 16-4 in night games at Ohio Stadium and has won 14 of its last 16 night games. The Buckeyes had 596 in total yards last weekend against Indiana, but they allowed 420 passing yards. That kind of effort won’t get it done against Mayfield and the Sooners.

Battle of the Bulldogs

Mississippi State (-8.5) at Louisiana Tech — Louisiana Tech is one of just eight schools in the nation that has won 15 of its last 16 home games, including six in a row. So, this isn’t a walk in the park for the heavy favorites from Mississippi State.

Louisiana Tech ran 72 plays last week against Northwestern State in their season opener, gaining almost 500 yards in total offense. And they have had one of the top scoring offenses in the country over the last three-plus seasons. In fact, Louisiana Tech has scored 40 or more points in nine of its last 10 games, 16 of its last 21. But that’s where the good news for Louisiana Tech ends in this one.

Mississippi State trounced Charleston Southern in their season opener. Here are some of the highlights: They led 35-0 at halftime. They limited their opponent to 33 yards of total offense on 47 plays, including just two first downs the entire game. Charleston Southern never came close to scoring a single point. State is led by Heisman candidate Nick Fitzgerald, who powered his team to 555 yards in total offense last weekend. This is not an opponent Mississippi State will take lightly as they battle for respect in the SEC West. Their dominant defense will be difference.
