The College Football regular season has crossed the halfway point and is now advancing into Week 7, and we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite bets and combined them into a parlay.
The Georgia Bulldogs bounced back from a close call against Auburn and dominated Kentucky last weekend, while Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. moved past USC’s Caleb Williams in Heisman odds.
Here are our favorite College Football Week 7 bets combined into a parlay.
Florida has lost five straight road games dating back to last year, but we believe that a reversal in fortune is imminent. The Gators’ offense is only 80th in scoring (27.2 points per game), but they’ve already faced Utah, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Their running game is strong and deep, and they have the fourth-highest average time of possession.
South Carolina has also faced a tough schedule, but its numbers are resoundingly underwhelming. They’re 121st in yards and 94th in points allowed per game, while the offense is 81st (one spot behind Florida) with 27 points per game. That means that the offenses are nearly identical in output, while Florida allows about 12.6 fewer points per game.
Spencer Rattler has been able to pave over a few of the cracks for South Carolina, but they’re still 2-3 and allowed 30 points to a woeful Mississippi State team before falling to Tennessee 41-20 last week. Florida wins this game and bucks the road woes.
Washington has the most prolific offense in the country. With Penix under center, they’ve scored 46 points per game and put up nearly 570 total yards per outing despite ranking 101st in rushing. Penix is averaging 399.8 yards per game and has 16 touchdowns to two interceptions and the second-best QBR in the country (91.6).
Oregon is coming off consecutive 42-6 victories over Colorado and Stanford. Their offense is second in the nation in points per game (51.6), while their defense allows only 11.8 points to opponents, the fifth-best mark in the country. QB Bo Nix is also a top-three Heisman candidate and will have the chance to show his stuff against an undefeated conference rival on the road.
Despite Washington’s defense giving up 18.6 points per game and Oregon’s rushing attack ranking eighth with 225.2 yards per game, we like the Huskies at home. They’ve got talented backs they can go to if needed and have the best player in the matchup in Penix.
Louisville is a perfect 6-0 and just beat Notre Dame on the road, 33-20. They’ve only played one road game and will be back away from home this weekend, but Pitt has only covered the spread one time this season. The Cardinals are 20th in points scored (36.3) and 22nd in points allowed per game (17.7) and have been steady on both sides.
Pitt is pivoting away from Boston College transfer Phil Jurkovec and handing the reins at quarterback to sophomore Christian Veilleux. He only went 7/18 for 85 yards and two interceptions against North Carolina a couple of weeks ago and figures to be back under center with Jurkovec moving to tight end.
The Panthers’ typical press-man defense is 70th in points allowed per game (26) and just gave up 38 to a woebegone Virginia Tech group. Expect the Cardinals to win and win big when they meet this weekend.

A college football parlay is a combination of multiple college football picks into one large bet.
In order for the bet to hit, every individual pick, known as a leg, must come true. Parlays offer bettors the chance to win exponentially larger payouts if they are willing to accept the extra risk.
Certain jurisdictions do not allow users to bet on in-state colleges. If you cannot find a local school on your sportsbook, that could be why.
Parlays can include standard major markets such as spreads, moneylines, and points totals, as well as props, if your state allows you to bet on college props.
The number-one rule to finding the best value for college football parlays is to line shop across different sportsbooks.
It’s also important to remember not to place contradictory bets. For example, it would be conflicting to take an underdog team to win but for their star quarterback to hit the under on his passing yards.
You should never include bets just to bump the value of your parlay. Stick to what you are the most confident in and leave it at that.
Users can also try adding safer alternate lines for the total or spread to lessen the risk of their parlay. For example, moving a spread of +4 to +7.5 would provide a full touchdown of comfort without greatly affecting the value of the parlay.
All that you need to do to place a college football parlay is to create an account (or log into your account) at a sportsbook, submit a deposit, add your favorite picks to your bet slip, and then assign a stake to the parlay.
Users can monitor the status of their parlays in the sportsbook. If one leg misses, the parlay will instantly be marked as a loss.
Restrictions for college football betting vary by state. More information on the rules can be found in our college football betting guide.
