  • Chase Kiddy’s favorite college football parlay leg of the weekend.
  • Nick Hennion’s NFL angle for Week 9.

Simply put, parlay bets offer bettors a chance to turn a little into a lot. 

Ahead of this weekend’s football action, our writers Chase Kiddy and Nick Hennion have teamed up to construct a college football/NFL parlay. 

This week, Kiddy is backing a Big 12 favorite, while Hennion is opting for an NFL underdog.

College Football odds and NFL odds are reflective at time of writing. 

College Football Betting Prediction

Iowa State Spread (-2.5) vs. Kansas

Chase Kiddy:  One of my favorite trends in online sports betting is the unranked favorite against the ranked underdog. 

This week, Kansas is back in the polls after the aforementioned victory over Oklahoma, yet it’s a road dog to unranked Iowa State. 

You can call it a letdown spot, but Iowa State is tied for first place in the Big 12. They can knock Kansas out of championship position with a win over the Jayhawks. 

In any case, the context is largely irrelevant to my decision-making process. I see an unranked favorite, I bet an unranked favorite.

NFL Betting Prediction

Seattle Seahawks Spread (+5.5, +100) vs. Baltimore Ravens

Nick Hennion: Seattle is uniquely suited to limit this Ravens offense. 

Most of Baltimore’s offensive prowess comes on the ground – they’re second in rush offense DVOA and 10th in adjusted line yards per attempt, according to ftnfantasy.com. 

On Sunday, they face a Seahawks team that excels at stopping the run. 

Through Week 8, head coach Pete Carroll’s side sits second in rush defense DVOA and fourth in adjusted line yards per attempt. 

This pick also matches two historically profitable betting systems. 

As an underdog, Carroll is 41-25-3 ATS (62%), including 18-9 when he’s getting more than three-and-a-half points. 

Plus, bettors who fade home favorites of -3.5 or higher after playing a road game the previous week are 60.4% ATS since 2019-20.

Parlay Odds

By combining these two plays into a single wager, bettors have odds of +273. 

For a bettor wagering $100, they would see a return of $273 if the parlay cashes.
