I like to post potential moneyline parlays in college sports. I haven’t hit one yet in college football this season but have only played one on two occasions this year. Now that teams are in conference play more of an opportunity is there to hit a three teamer. If you’re looking for premium plays just click on today’s picks to see what’s available.

The three teamer I like this week is North Carolina, SMU, and TCU. The strongest of the three is North Carolina. They are coming off a spanking at home to East Carolina. That instance and the Hokies pulling off an upset at Georgia Tech are the sole reason this line is seven points. But before a week ago no one would consider having faith in Virginia Tech. And I don’t this week. Their offense has to many glaring holes that leaves their defense prone to having to play a flawless game for four quarters. It nearly cost them two games. One at East Carolina which they won 15-10, and another they snuck away a victory against Marshall in overtime.

Look for North Carolina to respond and pull an outright upset over the Logan Thomas led Hokies. TCU getting 10.5 at Oklahoma is an eyebrow raiser to me. Blake Bell is still relatively new as a starter and is facing a TCU team hungry for this victory. A year ago Boykin and company had a chance to steal one and let it slip away in a competitive 24-17 loss. TCU to start the season was only a minimal underdog to LSU at a neutral site. A loss to Texas Tech on a Thursday night has baited people against this TCU team. They’ll play a sound game against an Oklahoma team that beat a West Virginia team 16-7 just a few weeks ago.

Lastly I like to always have a home dog with a good opportunity to win because of the home edge. Rutgers is not a team that typically travels but this will be the second time they’ve went west of the Mississippi. They played in Fresno week one and now travel to Texas against SMU. They’re a team that notoriously starts off slow. That’s not a recipe for success on the road. The line has moved from seven points initially down to 4.5 now.

Put $50 for a payout of $1500 or $100 for double the payout.
