When this college football season began, few people would have had Colorado vs Oregon being the marquee matchup on what is a blockbuster Week 4 schedule. But here we are, thanks mostly to head coach Deion Sanders leading his Buffaloes to a 3-0 start. Oregon is also undefeated, so this is a huge early-season showdown in the Pac-12.

Here is my Same Game Parlay for the festivities, which will be televised starting at 3:30 pm ET on ABC. Also be sure to check out our full Colorado vs Oregon predictions.

Colorado +21 (-110)

Dylan Edwards to record 60+ rushing yards (+320)

Dylan Edwards to score a touchdown (-115) 

Parlay odds: +634

One of the benefits of Same Game Parlays, of course, is that you can correlate the plays. That is the entire plan here, as running back Dylan Edwards putting up big numbers would obviously work well with a Colorado cover. Let’s break down each of the 3 legs.

Colorado +21 (-110)

Oregon will probably win this game, but I’m not giving 3 touchdowns to the team that has taken the college football world by storm so far this season. Shedeur Sanders (+1800 at DraftKings) is the 6th-favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, leading a high-powered Colorado offense. Most importantly, I’m not sold on Oregon. The Ducks just barely beat a 1-2 Texas Tech squad 38-30 and they were trailing with less than 2 minutes remaining in the game. It should also be noted that Oregon’s offense is more methodical than home-run hitting. The Ducks are outside the top 70 nationally in seconds per play and will probably use their stout offensive line and talented running backs to maintain extended possession. Additionally, QB Bo Nix has one of the lowest aDOTs in the country and is happy to take short or intermediate options in the passing game instead of risking downfield turnovers. This contest will likely be lower-scoring than expected, which is another reason why Colorado can keep it close.

Especially without Travis Hunter on the field, Colorado knows it isn’t the most talented team in this matchup. The Buffaloes will want to slow the game down and limit the overall number of possessions. It’s no secret that the Colorado defense is poor; this team’s best defense may be its offense. Keeping Nix and company on the sideline for as long as possible is going to be the visitors’ recipe for success. That means Edwards should get a steady diet of carries to keep the clock moving. Edwards has quietly been excellent in limited work this year. He has gained 136 yards on 25 attempts, averaging 5.4 yards per rush. He delivered 55 and 57 rushing yards in the past 2 outings despite never getting more than 10 carries. If he gets more work against the Ducks, Edwards can post a big number.

Dylan Edwards to score a touchdown (-115)

More work, of course, also means a greater likelihood of Edwards finding the end zone. That is exactly what he did 4 times in Colorado’s season-opening victory over TCU. The 5’9’’ freshman scored once on the ground and also caught 5 passes for 135 yards and 3 touchdowns. Oregon finds itself in the top 20 nationally in passing defense, giving the Buffaloes all the more reason to hammer the rock with Edwards. I think he has a great chance to score at least once today.
