A few things I look at when betting the bowl games. Location… There are a few games that will seem like home games to one team or the other. I look at teams expectations at the beginning or end of the year. I expect teams like Ohio State to come out flat. Also I look at coaching changes. If for example David Shaw or James Franklin leave Stanford or Vandy, then id typically take the opposite team. Right now as it stands I like both teams to cover.
Dec 21- Colorado St +5 vs Wash St
Fresno St +6 vs USC
UL Lafayette/Tulane Under 49
Buffalo +1.5 vs San Diego St
Dec 23 – East Carolina/Ohio Under 61.5
Dec 24 – Oregon St -3 vs Boise St
Dec 26 – N Illinois/Utah St under 58
Bowling Green/ Pitt over 50
Dec 27 – Maryland+2.5 vs Marshall
BYU +3 vs Washington
Minnesota/Syracuse over 47.5
Dec 28 – Kansas St -3.5 vs Michigan
UNC -3 vs Cincinnati…. Game is UNC’s back yard
Rutgers +14 vs Notre Dame… Game is in New York…Rutgers plays good teams tough.
Miami +3 vs Louisville… Louisville not happy to be in this bowl and they aren’t battle tested.(easy Schedule)
Dec 30 – Texas +13.5 vs Oregon… My favorite Bowl game…Id bet Texas on the money line. Oregon doesn’t want to be here and it’s in Texas, Also its Mack Brown’s final game. Those kids will play for him.
Mid Tennessee St +6 vs Navy
Georgia Tech/Ole Miss Under 56.5
Texas Tech +14 vs Arizona St… I think Kliff Kingsbury pulls out all the stops for Tech.
Dec 31 – Virginia Tech +7 vs UCLA
Duke +11.5 vs Texas A&M I really like Duke in this spot…A&M defense is horrendous.
Boston College/ Arizona over 57
Rice/Mississippi St over 50.5
Jan 1 – Georgia/ Nebraska over 60.5
North Texas -6.5 vs UNLV… game is played in Texas
Iowa +7 vs LSU
Central Florida +16.5 vs Baylor
Stanford -5 vs Michigan St… Love Stanford in this spot, I think they handle Michigan St at the line of scrimmage.
South Carolina +1.5 vs Wisconsin
Jan 2 – Oklahoma +15 vs Alabama
Jan 3 – Clemson +2.5 vs Ohio St… I love Clemson here. Ohio St thought they would be playing for the National Championship, Clemson is happy to be in a BCS Bowl game.
Jan 4 – Vanderbilt -2.5 vs Houston
Jan 5 – Arkansas St +7.5 vs Ball St
Jan 6 – Florida St -8.5 vs Auburn… I think Florida State rolls Auburn.
