College football props and parlays: Wednesday, Dec. 26 Bowl games

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 Wednesday’s bowl games.

College football parlay No. 1 (Caesars)

  • Military Bowl: Tulane +10.5 -110
  • Texas Bowl: Jaylen Henderson OVER 35.5 rushing yards -121
  • Parlay Odds: +249

The Green Wave will be down their head coach and several key players from this season’s 11-2 team, while the Virginia Tech roster is relatively intact. While this gives the Hokies a distinct advantage, underdogs have been doing well lately (8-2 SU and ATS in the last ten bowl games).

Virginia Tech is a decent team and will probably win, but we like Tulane to put up a fight and keep the deficit to single digits.

The Texas A&M offense came alive down the stretch when Jaylen Henderson took over at quarterback. With many of his best weapons opting out or entering the transfer portal, he’ll probably need to make a few more plays to keep the Aggies in the game.

Oklahoma State had a dreadful run defense this season. Look for Henderson to take advantage of it early and often.

A $100 wager will result in a $349 payday, your stake plus $249 in winnings.

CFB Parlay No. 2 (DraftKings)

  • Duke’s Mayor Bowl: Omarion Hampton OVER 115 .5 rushing yards -115
  • Holiday Bowl: Isaac Guerendo OVER 1.5 touchdowns +175
  • Parlay odds: +414

With Drake Maye and Tez Walker opting out of the game for North Carolina, the Tar Heels will probably lean on Omarion Hampton early and often. The sophomore running back was one of the best in the country this season, running for 1,442 yards and 15 touchdowns.

West Virginia had a decent run defense this season (144.3 ypg allowed), but the Tar Heels will give Hampton the ball so much that he will wear the Mountaineers’ defense down.

Louisville quarterback Jack Plummer will be able to do enough with the receivers he has to move the ball against USC in the Holiday Bowl. But the Cardinals will lean on the best running back on the roster in the red zone, senior Isaac Guerendo.

Thanks to the transfer portal and opt-outs, a bad Trojans defense will be even worse for this game, setting the stage for a career day for Guerendo.

A $100 wager will result in a $514 payday, your stake plus $414 in winnings.

CFB Parlay No. 3 (DraftKings)

  • Duke’s Mayo Bowl: Omario Hampton, anytime touchdown -220
  • Holiday Bowl: Tahj Washington, anytime touchdown +120
  • Texas Bowl: Jaylen Henderson, anytime touchdown +120
  • Parlay odds: +604

Hampton will be the best player on the field in the Military Bowl. It would not be shocking to see him carry the bowl 30 times in this game and score multiple touchdowns against a West Virginia defense that may slow him down but will not stop him.

While USC will be grossly undermanned against Louisville in the Holiday Bowl, games like this are where talented players like Tahj Washington shine. Look for him to record at least one touchdown once Louisville builds an early lead and the Cardinal defense begins to ease up.

With all the losses to the portal and opt-outs, Henderson must be the focal point of the offense for Texas A&M against a weak Oklahoma State run defense.

A $100 wager will result in a $704 payday, your stake plus $604 in winnings.

Additional props to consider

Military Bowl: Bhayshul Tuten, anytime touchdown -162 (Caesars)

The junior running back has been a solid workhorse for the Hokies this season and will need to come through against Tulane for Virginia Tech to have a shot at winning the game. Look for the Hokies to call his number anytime they get within ten yards of the end zone.’

He scored at least one touchdown in five of his last seven games.

Texas Bowl: Ollie Gordon, OVER .5 rush touchdowns -175 (DraftKings)

Texas A&M had a top-notch run defense this season, but like the offense, their defense got hit hard by the portal and opt-outs. It may still slow Gordon down (a little), but it will not keep him out of the end zone.

Holiday Bowl: Chris Bell, 50+ receiving yards +145 (DraftKings)

With Jamari Thrash out, Jack Plummer will need someone to step up. Chris Bell, second on the team in receptions and yards to Thrash, is the most likely candidate. He had 50+ yards in just two games this year, but since he’ll probably be Plummer’s No. 1 option, he’ll clear 50+ yards against USC.
