College Football Betting Parlay Picks New Year’s Eve

College Football Betting Parlay Picks New Year’s Eve, It has been a rough start to my college bowl picks with a 1-3 record over the last two weeks, but I am going big on my two-team parlay pick for the College Football Playoff national semifinals on New Year’s Eve. The following two picks are based on betting odds by GT Bets.

College Football Betting Parlay Picks No. 1 Clemson Tigers vs. No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners

Pointspread: Oklahoma -3.5

Clemson remains the only team in this year’s College Football Playoff rankings with a perfect record at 13-0. The Tigers were a far less reliable 6-7 against the spread, but they closed as favorites in all 13 games. I like this team playing the role of underdogs as added motivation for being disrespected as the top team in the nation. I also like Tigers’ quarterback Deshawn Watson to make a statement that maybe he should have won this year’s Heisman Trophy.

It would be hard to argue against the Sooners being in this year’s College Football Playoff with big wins down the stretch against Baylor, TCU and Oklahoma State to go 11-1 SU on the year, but that 24-17 loss to Texas on Oct. 10 as 16.5-point road favorites is still a big red flag in my book. Oklahoma points to last season’s 40-6 loss to Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl as its motivation for Thursday night, but along with a 1-5 record ATS in its last six neutral-site games that loss only furthers my conviction that the Tigers are winning this time around as well.

No. 3 Michigan State Spartans vs. No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide

Pointspread: Alabama -10

The Spartans’ bandwagon for a run to the College Football Playoff had quite a bit of room before the season started, but it is now jam-packed heading into this game. Michigan State is a solid team, but the real question in this matchup is can it cover the 10-point spread as opposed to talking about a SU upset. GT Bet’s opening spread was 9.5 points and that half point in Michigan State’s favor as piqued my interest.

Alabama may have gotten caught looking past Ohio State in last season’s 42-35 loss to the Buckeyes as a 7.5-point favorite in the College Football Playoff semifinals, but you get the feeling that head coach Nick Saban will have his team ready this time around. The Tide knows how to win games SU at 12-1, but as far as betting on them to cover they were just 7-6 ATS. I still that that extra half point looms big in what could easily be a 10-point margin of victory for Alabama so I will hedge my bet and take the bait on the Spartans to cover.
