College Football Parlay Week 5

College Football Parlay Week 5

Florida State, ranked among the best teams in the country before the season started, suffered its second loss last weekend and dropped out of the Top 25. Oregon was the only other team to get the boot from the rankings when it lost to Arizona State. The two newcomers to this elite group are Notre Dame and West Virginia. Let’s try and pick a two-game parlay this weekend, with both matchups involving Top 25 teams (odds provided by bovada).


BABB’s College Football Week 5 parlay pick — Take Washington (-27) over Oregon State and Texas Tech (+10) over Oklahoma State for a $25 parlay. If both teams cover the spread, the payoff is $68.17. If either team loses, the ticket is void.


      Huskies the Leader of the Pac

      Washington (-27) at Oregon State — The No. 6 Huskies (4-0) have won five straight against the Beavers (1-3). They come into this game off a 27-point win over Colorado in a rematch of last year’s Pac-12 championship.

      Washington has outscored its opponents by 131 points in its four wins this season. Oregon State has been blasted by 95 points in its three losses. This contest has all the markings of another blowout, and here are some stats to prove it: Points per game — Washington 44.5, Oregon State 24.8; total yards — UW 427 yards, OSU 356; and yards allowed — UW 274 yards, OSU 486.

      The Huskies are led by junior quarterback Jake Browning, who is having another stellar season. He’s completed 69-of-99 passes (69.7%) for 958 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions. But Washington has more rushing attempts than passes, with Myles Gaskin carrying the bulk of the load. He’s rushed for 355 yards on 51 carries, good for seven yards per attempt. Gaskin also leads the team with five touchdowns.

      Oregon State has really struggled this season. They have a few weapons on offense, but their defense has been awful as the Beavers rank 127th out of 130 in scoring defense. Oregon State is also 0-4 against the spread this year, including two blowout losses at home.

      Odds Stacked Against Texas Tech

      Oklahoma State at Texas Tech (+10) — How much damage did last weekend’s embarrassing loss to TCU do to the Cowboys? They dropped in the rankings from No. 6 all the way down to 15th. And now they meet an undefeated team on the road, which they beat by a single point last season.

      Texas Tech ranks second nationally in takeaways, with nine turnovers. They will need a few of those to cover the spread and knock off their Big 12 rivals.

      Quarterback Nic Shimonek passed for 321 yards and two touchdowns as Texas Tech defeated Houston 27-24 last weekend, halting the Cougars’ 16-game home winning streak. Dakota Allen, who had an interception and 12 tackles, was named Big 12 player of the week with his dominant performance on defense.

      Oklahoma State has won 10 of its last 12 road games. Senior quarterback Mason Rudolph has completed 90-of-135 passes (66.7%) for 1,533 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. Rudolph has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 10 games.
       
      The Red Raiders look for another win here to start 4-0 for the first time since 2013. They are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 home games, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings at Texas Tech. Something has to give.

      College Football Games This Week

      Ole Miss at No. 1 Alabama (-28) — The Crimson Tide are a huge favorite and should win the game, but don’t be too quick to give up all those points. The Rebels put a scare into Alabama last year, losing 48-43.

      No. 2 Clemson at No. 12 Virginia Tech (+7.5) — The Hokies haven’t beaten the Tigers in 10 years. This is a statement game for them. A win here sure would shake up the Top 25.

      No. 5 USC at No. 16 Washington State (+4) — The Trojans have had the bragging rights over the Cougars for the last four years. Both teams are 4-0 heading into this Friday night matchup.

      No. 24 Mississippi State at No. 13 Auburn (-10) — Both the Bulldogs and Tigers are 3-1 heading into this SEC contest. Neither team can afford another loss if they want to play in a meaningful bowl game this year.
