NCAAF Parlay: Go with Huskies To Strike First in CFP Parlay

There were plenty of those who bet online that jumped all over the Sugar Bowl matchup between Washington and Texas going over the 61½-point total and that was the wise choice. There is a little more to ponder with the Washington-Michigan College Football Playoff title game having a total of 56½.

Michigan has been favored in every game this season and is the favorite yet again. The Huskies are 3-0 outright as the underdog and that is a piece of information to consider heading into Monday’s title game.

The college football betting lines have Michigan as a 4½-point favorite so there is some wiggle room for those who think that the Huskies can stay within a field goal or even take down the favored Wolverines.

When looking at the best college football parlays, keep in mind that there are no weather concerns to ponder.

Now it is time to take a look at the best three-game parlay heading into the College Football semifinals with some NCAAF football picks and parlay options.

Here’s a look at some NCAA football odds to consider!

Washington Huskies vs Michigan Wolverines (Over 56½)

Seven of Washington’s last nine games have had more than 60 points scored and with the way that quarterback and Heisman Trophy finalist Michael Penix Jr. was slinging the ball around the field as Washington won a thriller in the Sugar Bowl against the favored Texas, the national title game has the potential for some offensive fireworks.

Michigan has allowed the fewest yards in the country so there is some risk involved in this pick. However, Michigan hasn’t faced an offense ranked in the top 40. With all due respect to Alabama and Ohio State, the Wolverines have not gone against an offense that poses the matchup issues of this Washington team. This is also an experienced Washington team on both sides of the ball.

Michigan would love to turn this contest into a hard-hitting low-scoring affair. However, that is going to be easier said than done. That makes the over the best way to proceed.

Washington To Score First (Ev)

Washington is 10th in the country with an average of 10 points per game in the opening quarter.

However, Michigan is in the top 15 nationally in both points scored and the fewest points allowed per game in the first quarter of games.

That makes this a tough pick but Washington’s best chance for victory is to take the early lead and try to force the Wolverines to rely on the passing game to win the national title.

Washington has scored first in each of its last five games while three of Michigan’s last five opponents came away with the first points of the game so go with the Huskies to open the scoring in this matchup.

Will Michigan Or Washington Score Three Times In A Row – No +173

Things got ugly in a hurry in last year’s College Football Playoff Championship Game as Georgia ran over and around an overmatched Texas Christian team on the way to a 65-7 win, easily covering against the college football spread.

Do not expect anything like that to happen when Washington and Michigan get together.

Michigan did have at least three consecutive scores in each of its first nine games. However, the Wolverines are not playing East Carolina, UNLV, Bowling Green, Rutgers, Nebraska, Minnesota, Indiana or Michigan State.

If what transpired in the Sugar Bowl proved anything, it showed that Washington should be able to answer if the Wolverines look ready to pull away in the national title game.

It is worth rolling with neither the Wolverines nor the Huskies scoring at least three times in a row. The NCAAF Las Vegas odds have a decent payoff if that happens.


Bet This Parlay: Washington-Michigan Over 56½, Washington to score first (+105), Neither team scores three times in a row (+173)
