College Football Parlays - Week 9

Week 9 of the College Football season is here, and teams like the Alabama Crimson Tide are on bye. 

There’s still plenty of college football action to bet on, though, and below, we have a three-leg parlay at DraftKings you should strongly consider betting on.

DraftKings Sportsbook offers all new players who sign up for an account a $1,000 deposit bonus when they use our link. 

Iowa State vs. Oklahoma

Pick: Under 55 (-110) at DraftKings

Playing at Iowa State, the Sooners will go up against one of the better defenses in college football. The Cyclones allow less than 290 yards of total offense per game. The Sooners will have quarterback Dillon Gabriel back in the lineup, which will help them, but the Cyclones have done a great job against their opponents.

The Sooners are in a great position to win with Gabriel and their rushing attack led by Eric Gray. 

As for the Sooners' defense, they allow close to 450 yards per game and face a Cyclones offense at its best when quarterback Hunter Dekkers targets wide receiver, Xavier Hutchinson.

The Sooners' defense will know what's coming and look to stop that, whereas the Sooners, with Gabriel in his first game back from injury, should move the ball, but not enough to help carry this total over. 

Iowa vs. Northwestern

Pick: Northwestern +11 (-110) at DraftKings

If you’re looking for offense, you may want to look elsewhere. The Iowa Hawkeyes are well known for not scoring. They scored just 10 last week and six the week before. This week, they draw the 1-6 Northwestern Wildcats that rank 97th in the country in total yards allowed at close to 409. 

However, we may see the Hawkeyes turn their quarterback duties over to Alex Padilla. In relief of Spencer Petras against Ohio State, Padilla completed just a fix of 10 passes for 32 yards and an interception. However, the interception wasn’t necessarily his fault.

The Hawkeyes will lock down the Wildcats, but there are legitimate questions about how many points they’ll score.

We can’t lay 11 points with this team. 

Arizona vs. USC

Pick: USC -15 (-115) at DraftKings

It's not listed here, but this game's total is 76 points. That's a ton of points, but for a good reason.

The USC Trojans rank 73rd in total yards allowed per game at nearly 382 and have allowed 21 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Arizona is 118th in the country at 454 yards, and the've allowed 34 touchdowns. 

Offensively, USC is phenomenal with quarterback Caleb Williams and Jordan Addison. There's a strong chance at a backdoor cover here as Arizona's quarterback Jayden de Laura has seven interceptions and, according to Pro Football Focus, has had 16 turnover-worthy plays. 

The Trojans' defense isn't fantastic, but if they can generate turnovers, this USC offense isn't stopping.
