College football parlays: Bowl games on Saturday, Dec. 16

If you like to risk a little and win a lot, then college football parlays are for you. However, the house’s edge is even more significant regarding parlays. So, when putting money down on them, do what you can to minimize your risk.

Rather than add another leg and go for the massive payday, keep your parlays short (two or three legs). Let’s review a few college football parlays using Saturday’s bowl games.

College football parlay featuring Myrtle Beach Bowl and New Orleans Bowl (BetMGM)

  • Georgia Southern-Ohio UNDER 48.5 -105
  • Zion Webb OVER 74.5 rushing yards -115
  • Parlay odds: +265

Georgia Southern had a solid passing game this year and averaged 30.9 ppg this season. But they will face one of the best pass defenses in the country in Ohio (No. 7).

The Bobcats offense lost several key players to the transfer portal, making it hard for an already lackluster unit to get on track.

While he had negative yardage in the season finale vs. New Mexico State, Jacksonville State quarterback Zion Webb ran for at least 100 yards in three of his last four games with 10-plus carries (he had eight vs. New Mexico State).

The Louisiana defense was weak against the run this year (No. 84, 160.9 YPG allowed) and lost one key player to the transfer portal, linebacker Kendre Gant.

A $100 wager will result in a $365 payday, your stake plus $265 in winnings.

CFB Parlay featuring the Cure Bowl and New Mexico Bowl (BetMGM)

  • Rashad Amos OVER 83.5 rushing yards -115
  • Diego Garcia OVER 47.5 rushing yards -115
  • Parlay odds: +249

Rashad Amos has not run for more than 83.5 yards since early November, when he had 118 against Akron. But with Miami (OH) forced to go with Henry Hesson at QB (Brett Gabbert, injured; Aveon Smith, transfer portal), who has had 16 career snaps, Amos will likely see 20-plus carries.

Against Appalachian State’s lackluster run defense (No. 111 in the country, 178.1 YPG allowed), he should be good for the OVER as long as he gets 20 carries.

New Mexico State quarterback Diego Pavia had over 47.5 yards rushing in eight games but only once in the last four. His carries ranged from four to 19; he only had five in the Conference USA title game but left early with an injury.

He is expected to play in the bowl game.

With their top receiver entering the transfer portal, it would not be shocking to see the Aggies put more emphasis on the run game.

College football parlay featuring the LA Bowl and Independence Bowl (FanDuel)

  • Boise State +162
  • Tajh Brooks, anytime touchdown -350
  • Parlay odds: +230

The transfer portal, opt-outs and coaching changes will hurt UCLA. Not only has starting quarterback Dante Moore entered the transfer portal, but they also lost a pair of defensive backs.

Star defensive lineman Laiatu Latu (fourth in the nation in sacks) opted out to prepare for the draft.

If those losses were not bad enough, defensive coordinator D’Anton Lynn departed for USC and QB coach Ryan Gunderson left for Oregon State.

Boise State lost its starting QB to the portal as well. With the primary backup already out for the year, the Broncos will turn to freshman CJ Tiller. But with the framework of a good team around him, we like Boise State to upset a UCLA team missing several vital parts.

Brooks was a beast for the Red Raiders this year, rushing for over 1,400 yards and nine touchdowns. Texas shut him out in their regular season finale but had recorded at least one in the previous seven games.

Cal gave up 22 rushing touchdowns this year.

A $100 wager will result in a $330 payday, your stake plus $230 in winnings.
