Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

It’s not necessarily the biggest weekend of the 2021 college football season, but there are a few intriguing and important games on offer. And we will spice it up to an even greater extent with a potentially lucrative three-team parlay.

We have hit two mega parlays through four weeks, cashing one at better than +1100 odds and another north of +1500. It’s safe to say that batting .500 is pretty darn good when you are working with those kinds of numbers, but why not do even better than that? We’re certainly going to try.

Missouri ML (-125)

Stanford (+165)

Kansas State (+185)

Parlay odds: +1281

For this parlay we are going with two considerable underdogs and one slight favorite. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Missouri ML over Boston College (-125)

Boston College is 3-0, but consider the opposition: Colgate, UMass, and Temple. The Eagles suffered a massive blow when QB Phil Jurkovec went down with a hand injury against UMass. Jurkovec is out this week and could potentially miss the rest of the season. It remains to be seen just how efficient the offense can be against a quality opponent without Jurkovec at the helm. Senior Dennis Grosel struggled against Temple, which doesn’t bode well for his chances while facing an opponent from the SEC. Missouri boasts an excellent pass rush and will be chomping at the bit when starting down a backup QB. On the other side of the ball, Connor Bazelak and Tyler Badie are an excellent QB-RB combo for the Tigers. Bazelak has already thrown for 897 yards and 9 touchdowns on the young season. Badie is averaging 7.2 yards per carry to go along with 15 receptions for 142 yards out of the backfield.

Stanford ML over UCLA (+165)

Both teams are looking to win their first conference game of the season and show they are contenders in the Pac-12 South. Stanford comes into this game off an impressive 41-23 win over Vanderbilt, while UCLA was upset by Fresno State 40-37 last weekend. The Bruins are explosive on offense, but as their most recent result indicated they can’t really stop anyone. They are going to have to score a ton to beat Stanford, because the Cardinal’s offensive line should have a huge advantage over UCLA’s front four. Stanford is 6-1 straight up in its last 7 at home in this head-to-head matchup.

Kansas State ML over Oklahoma State (+185)

Both teams are 3-0 and have relied heavily on their defenses. From an offensive standpoint, the Wildcats have definitely looked better than the Cowboys. KSU is currently ranked 19th in the nation in rushing offense with 226 yards per game. It’s been the Deuce Vaughn show, as the sophomore running back has already compiled 400 total yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns. For OSU, starting quarterback Spencer Sanders sat out the first game due to Covid-19 and hasn’t looked very good since returning. He’ll be looking to rebound off last week’s rough outing (6-of-13 for just 82 yards). The Cowboys are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 regular-season games and they are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 at home. This not only feels like a cover for the Cats, but also a straight-up win.
