For the second week in a row my ACC picks won their game straight-up, but the half point on the spread in Virginia Tech three-point win over Virginia cost me the parlay bet. This week I have turned my attention to both the ACC and SEC title games as my parlay pick based on betting odds by TopBET.eu
College Football Week 14 Betting Parlay Picks Florida Gators vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
Pointspread: Alabama -17
Florida comes into this SEC title game on a down note after falling to Florida State 27-2 this past Saturday as a 2.5-point home underdog in that traditional rivalry game. The loss dropped the Gators to 10-2 straight-up and they have now failed to cover in four of their last six games. Florida has lost four of the last five meetings against the Tide and it has failed to cover in eight of the last nine online college football betting games between the two.
Not only does Alabama have the advantage in this matchup when it comes to recent betting trends, it is also playing its best ball of the year down the stretch. The Tide have covered against the spread in their last four games while outscoring their opponents by a combined 105 points. This Saturday’s SEC title showdown will be a case of too much Derrick Henry running the ball on offense and too much pressure from an Alabama defense that is ranked third in the nation in points allowed (14.3).
NCAAF Week 14 Betting Parlay Picks North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Clemson Tigers
Pointspread: Clemson -5.5
North Carolina completed its perfect 8-0 run through the ACC with this past Saturday’s 45-34 victory against in-state rival NC State as a 3.5-point road favorite. The Tar Heels have now covered in six of their last eight games on their way to a SU 11-1 mark on the year. The two biggest things in their favor for this ACC title matchup is a potent offense that is averaging 41 points a NCAAF betting game complementing a defense that is only giving-up 20.8 points.
The Tigers completed their perfect 12-0 SU run through the regular season with a tougher than expected 37-32 victory against their in-state rival South Carolina. They failed to cover as heavy 20.5-point road favorites to fall to 2-5 ATS over their last seven games. There is no doubt that Clemson is one of the best balanced teams in the nation on offense behind quarterback Deshawn Watson and its defense is only allowing an average of 18.8 points a game, but I think the Tigers are going to have their hands full again this Saturday against North Carolina. Clemson squeezes-out the SU win, but I am taking the Tar Heels plus 5.5 points to cover in this neutral-site clash.
