For the teams that won their opening game of the college football season, there is not time to rest on those laurels, as Week 2 will be here before you know it. Given what went down in the opening weekend of the season, we can probably already predict that the race for the top 4 spots is going to be a close one. Teams that we really liked heading into the season struggled a little to get things rolling, but we also know that some teams take a little longer than others to get warmed up. With that being said, it is time to look ahead to Week 2 and our parlay picks. As always, we are splitting them into SU, ATS, and O/U picks, but you guys can do it any way you wish. Let’s get right to the NCAAF Betting picks.
2021 Parlay Picks for Week 2 | College Football Betting
NCAAF Week 2 SU Parlay – Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Iowa
Both Pittsburgh and Tennessee ran out to convincing wind in Week 1, but those were both victories that were expected. Both teams have also gone 16-4 SU in their last 20 games, but the Vols are just 2-7 SU overall in their last 9. Slight edge to Pittsburgh.
Rutgers has not done much in the way of winning over the past few seasons, but they got off to a fantastic start in Week 1, scoring 61 points in a lopsided win over UMASS. They have won 6 of the last 8 meetings against Syracuse and should maintain that winning record.
Iowa went into last week’s game against Indiana as an underdog and laid down a beating. They will be the underdog again this weekend against an Iowa State team that underwhelmed in Week 1. I am going with Iowa for back-to-back upsets.
NCAAF Week 2 ATS Parlay – Minnesota (-19 ½), Texas A&M (-17), Miami (-8)
While Minnesota may have lost their opening game of the season, they put up a very good fight against a highly ranked Ohio State football team. I think they bounce back in a big way in Week 2 against a Redbirds team that did not look very good at all in Week 1.
There are a lot of people looking at the Aggies as a dark horse team this season. They had zero issues with Kent in their opener and should deliver more of the same on the road in Colorado. They have not had a ton of success ATS versus the Buffaloes, but I think that changes this weekend.
One of the good things about how quickly games comes around is that teams don’t have a lot of time to linger on a poor performance. Miami was destroyed by Alabama, but I think they bounce back with a win and cover against Appalachian State in Week 2.
NCAAF Week 2 O/U Parlay – Florida (O58), Air Force (U40 ½), Texas (O57)
There is an expectation that the Florida Gators might take a step back this season, especially on the offensive side of the football. Their opening game of the season went under the point total, but 6 of their last 7 versus AAC opponents have gone OVER.
With the meeting between Air Force and Navy, it’s always a good idea to look at the past history when making a pick. This is a meeting that has very much trended UNDER, with 12 of the last 17 games between these two going that route.
Texas overcame a tricky Week 1 matchup by downing ULL 38-18. This week’s game versus Arkansas is another tough one, as well as being a game that might delivers some offense. Texas has seen 5 of their last 6 road games go OVER, so let’s stick with that trend.
