College football betting begins at the online sportsbook with several Week 0 games on Saturday, Aug. 27. From Power Five conference games to intriguing Group of Five non-conference games, there are a variety of opportunities for everyone, including betting on parlays.

Here are three potential college football parlays for Week 0:

Conference USA Underdog

Bets: UTEP +1 vs. North Texas, Charlotte +7.5 at FAU

Odds: +256

Payout: $356 on $100 bet

The UTEP Miners are building a lot of momentum under head coach Dana Dimel after making their first bowl appearance since 2014. They’ll look to keep the good vibes going with a winnable home conference game against North Texas, who’s led by potential college football hot seat coach Seth Littrell.

The Charlotte 49ers are experienced with a fifth-year starting quarterback and a loaded receiving room, and they had the same record (5-7) as their opponent did last year.

Mountain West Over Under Totals

Bets: Vanderbilt at Hawaii OVER 53.5, UConn at Utah State UNDER 59.5

Odds: +264

Payout: $364 on $100 bet

Want some points for the late-night Hawaii Rainbow Warriors game?

This team will be running the Air Raid under new head coach Timmy Chang, and the defense is almost full of new faces, which could lead to points against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

To complete this Mountain West Totals parlay, you could add the Under in the Utah State Aggies game. It’s a total of 59.5 – the biggest Week 0 over under total –  and the Aggies are breaking in an entirely new receiving group. UConn, meanwhile, mustered just 15.6 points per game a season ago.

Jerry Kill Underdog

Bets: New Mexico State ML +275, UTEP ML -110

Odds: +615

Payout: $715 on $100 bet

The New Mexico State Aggies aren’t a great football program, but they start the season with an experienced head coach in Jerry Kill and a home game against a Nevada Wolf Pack team with an entirely new coaching staff and may field only four returning starters.

If the Aggies are ever going to pull off an upset, Week 0 would be a good shot against a Nevada team in for a long season. Pairing that with the aforementioned UTEP Miners results in a nice payout for anyone looking for a long shot.
