  • Don't forget about moneyline underdogs when finalizing your college football Week 14 bets.
  • Three of our college football experts give their best moneyline underdog bets for conference championship weekend.
  • If you're feeling lucky, a moneyline parlay of all three pays approximately 26-1.

Like we do each week, we’ll give out our favorite moneyline underdogs on the Week 14 college football slate. Bet one that catches your eye, throw all three in a longshot parlay or just absorb some additional insight ahead of the weekend.

Two of the plays always come from Collin Wilson and me on The Action Network Colleges podcast — and college football contributor Locky Lockerson will provide the other.

In Week 13, we were able to get Baylor home at +200, while almost getting a juicy payout with Nebraska +335. After breaking even last week, our YTD record stands at 14-24 +5.35 units.

Two of our three underdogs for Week 14 involve teams playing for a conference title. If you’re feeling lucky, a moneyline parlay of all three pays approximately 26-1 .

All three play on Saturday afternoon, so let’s get things started with the Conference USA championship game in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Locky: UAB +110

  • Spread: MTSU -1.5
  • Over/Under: 44
  • Time: 1:30 p.m. ET
  • TV: CBSSN

With only 14 games on the schedule for Saturday, there wasn’t much to choose from. As a result, I ended up going with the Blazers as a very small underdog.

I simply think there is too much value to pass up on in a rematch of last week’s game. On this exact same field, UAB was a 3-point favorite in that game and now it is listed as a 1.5-point underdog just seven days later? Why? Because of a loss in a game it clearly mailed it, playing without numerous starters?

The Blazers also had a very basic game plan, as they didn’t really go after the quarterback. I assume they didn’t want to show much on defense. After all, their defensive pressure is the strength of the team; the UAB defense ranks No. 2 in the country in Adjusted Sack Rate, while the MTSU offensive line ranks 103rd.

The forecast calls for nasty weather, which should hurt MTSU’s style much more than UAB. I’m going with the small underdog moneyline here on a week without many options.
