College football week 14 is upon us. We take a look at the top three bets to make as we near the end of our college football season.
It’s conference championship week in college football, so the slate is a bit slimmer to choose from when it comes to best bets.
We had a tough week last week based on bad luck really. Let’s take a look.
-We took Texas -3 against TCU. We thought it being Charlie Strong’s final game at home and the matchup would be enough. Texas had its chances early and should have been up two scores. They failed to scored TD’s from their 1 yard line TWICE. Plus turned the ball over on downs TWICE in the first half. They got smoked 24-3 in the second half. Still like the bet. Loss
-We took FSU -6.5 against Florida. Easy money. FSU dominated the game and held Florida to 3.2 yards per play and Florida didn’t score an offensive TD for the second year in a row. Win
-We took UNC vs. NC State OVER 57. I still don’t know how this lost. The total was 28 points at half with a missed FG to end the half. The second half saw teams go on long clock eating drives that limited possessions. UNC turning it over on downs inside the NC State 10 yard line in the second half hurt badly. Loss
We’re 22-26-3 on the season. Let’s get into our top three bets and get some positive momentum going for us. These will be FUN bets outside the norm for me.

Navy -165 vs. Temple
Oklahoma -400 vs. Oklahoma State
Barely plus money, but I like both of these teams to win their respective games. I’m not sure I’d lay -11 with Oklahoma against Oklahoma State.

San Diego State -250 vs. Wyoming
Washington -310 vs. Colorado
San Diego State was a double digit favorite in this game a while back and now you can get them at -5.5. I like Washington to win this game too.
If you wanted to take the spread and parlay these it would be around +273.

San Diego State -250
Hey, why not? I normally don’t do parlays but I don’t like the spreads on some of these games. I would take Navy at the -2.5 I’ve seen. I would take San Diego State at -5.5 too. I would probably take Washington at -6.5. I’m not sure I’d take Oklahoma to cover their double digit spread.
This would be a easy way to cash at + money. If you went spread for the first three and the ML on Oklahoma it would be huge.
Good luck and enjoy bet wisely on these college football games. Don’t go crazy with these parlays as we still have the entire bowl season to rack up some money!
