Between December 25 and 31, we have 16 college football bowl games to look forward to before heading into the New Year, meaning we have plenty of games to look forward to for some parlay action.
Below is a three-leg parlay with odds from DraftKings Sportsbook—the odds amount to +550.
Learn more about our picks below.
Here we go. The Orange Bowl is also the game in which the two teams playing don’t want to be there—the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida State Seminoles. Both teams would rather be in the College Football Playoff. However, Georgia lost to Alabama, resulting in them losing their spot, but that also had a ripple effect as Alabama became the No. 4 seed and knocked out Florida State, who was without starting quarterback Jordan Travis, and turned things over to Brock Glenn for the ACC Championship game.
Speaking of Glenn, he’ll be starting this game as Travis is off to the NFL, and primary backup Tate Rodemaker is transferring.
Glenn completed eight of 21 passes for 55 yards in the ACC Championship. That’s it.
Here, he’ll go up against a Bulldogs defense that allowed 17.4 points, 116.3 rushing yards, and 181.8 passing yards per game.
Based on the current opt-outs, Georgia should still have plenty of defensive talent on the field and quarterback Carson Beck. Brock Bowers’ status is up in the air, and so is Ladd McConkey.
On the other hand, Florida State is without many players, including running back Trey Benson, wide receivers Johnny Wilson and Keon Coleman, and many others. Wide receiver Destyn Hill may suit up.
If the Georgia defensive players suit up, they will smother Glenn, who managed just 55 passing yards against Louisville.
Look for a big Georgia win.

If there’s one thing Rutgers was known for this season, it was their defense. They allowed 189.8 passing yards, 142.7 rushing yards, and 22.6 points per game. Considering they played in the Big Ten, going up against Michigan and other squads, that’s a solid performance.
Here, they’ll take on Miami, who’s without several players on offense, including quarterback Tyler Van Dyke, wide receiver Colbie Young, running back Don Chaney, and more.
Quarterback Jacurri Brown will start here as Emory Williams is out for the season with an arm injury.
Brown has attempted 46 passes in college football, completing 27 for 230 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. He’s also added 284 rushing yards.
Rutgers averaged 19.9 points per game this season, 110th in the country compared to Miami’s 30.6. Of course, they’re without a good chunk of their offense.
Look for Rutgers defense to hold down the inexperienced quarterback while their offense struggles to score points.
Expect a Miami win here, but a low-scoring affair, hence taking the under.

It has certainly been a tumultuous offseason for the Buckeyes with Kyle McCord transferring to Nebraska, but now, we look ahead to the Cotton Bowl between them and Missouri.
Missouri is certainly on the better end here in terms of opt-outs. Most of their offense is intact, with Brady Cook under center, wide receiver Luther Burden III, and running back Cody Schrader.
However, the same can be said for one of the nation’s best defenses, Ohio State.
They’re going to be without wide receivers Julian Fleming and most likely Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka, as well as running backs Chip Trayanum and Miyan Williams, but it appears TreVeyon Henderson’s status is up in the air, and there’s no word on really any defensive players opting out.
If that’s the case, Missouri is in for a tough day no matter what the Ohio State offense looks like, as they allowed 11.4 points, 113.9 rushing yards, and a nation-low 148.6 passing yards per game.
For now, bet the Ohio State moneyline, but if defensive players like Jack Sawyer and JT Tuimoloau opt out of this one, we may need to pivot here as the Tigers offense remains intact.
Where: AT&T Stadium, Dallas, TX
