The College Football season is winding down, and this week we march on to Week 12. There are plenty of big matchups this week, but which are worth putting into a parlay?
Below we have a three-leg parlay from DraftKings Sportsbook with odds of +583.
Michigan is the No. 3 team in the nation and is at home, but Illinois’ defense is nothing to overlook. They give up just 161 passing yards per game and just over 80 rushing yards per game. Meanwhile, the Wolverines give up just 160 passing yards and the fewest rushing yards per game in the country at just over 70.
The Wolverines have the edge here with running back Blake Corum and his 17 touchdowns. Still, Illinois has an excellent running back, too, in Chase Brown. Brown has 281 carries this season.
Illinois also has perhaps the best cornerback in the country, Devon Witherspoon, who’s allowed just 19 catches this season.
Michigan will win this one, but this should be a lower-scoring affair, and Illinois covers.
The schedule makers weren’t kind to Massachusetts here as they head out on the road to take on Texas A&M.
UMass is just 1-9 on the year, and their quarterback, Brady Olson, has been atrocious this year. He’s started four games this year but has also appeared in three others. In total, he’s completing 52.7% of his passes for 591 yards and has just two touchdowns to six interceptions.
Texas A&M hasn’t played well this year, but that’s in the context of being in the SEC. Still, their defensive line should do well against the UMass offensive line. The matchup to look for is A&M edge rusher Fadil Diggs against UMass left tackle Max Longman.
UMass will have trouble scoring here, as A&M should drop at least 40 at home.
Nebraska is 3-7 on the year and has covered the spread in just two games. Meanwhile, Wisconsin is 5-5 on the year and 5-5 ATS.
Nebraska is at home here, and while quarterback Casey Thompson has continued to play well, the Wisconsin defense will create massive problems.
The most significant mismatch is Wisconsin edge rusher Nick Herbig (28 total pressures, 11 sacks) against Nebraska left tackle Turner Corcoran (who has allowed 40 pressures, 30 hurries, six hits, and four sacks this season).
Mertz hasn’t played well over the last few weeks. In his previous two games, he hasn’t eclipsed 176 yards passing and completed 27.8% of his passes against Maryland.
Against Nebraska, this Wisconsin backfield led by Braelon Allen should be able to run on them—they give up 191 rushing yards per game (112th in the nation).
