College Football Betting: First Look at the Best Bowl Games

Posted by The Wiesguy on 12/14/2015 9:10:35 PM

Bowl season is upon us. It looks like they got the playoff selections right but there is something wrong with a system in which teams with losing records also get to extend their seasons, isn’t there?. Here are the games I am most interested in, mostly because the matchups look like we should get a real game.

Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl

Saturday December 19

BYU Cougars vs. Utah Utes

Utes -2.5

So many bowl matchups have no history but that is definitely not the case with this incarnation of the Holy War...and it is in Las Vegas, hilarious. BYU has lost their coach to Virginia but as far as I know he is still coaching them for this one. He is taking flack but I actually think it is the way to go. Anyways these are two good teams whose strengths should mean that we have some offense in this one. BYU will air it out while Utah pounds it on the ground. I see this one as being pretty evenly matched so going with the underdog Cougars is the way to go.

Marmot Boca Raton Bowl

Tuesday December 22

Temple vs. Toledo

Owls -1.5

A month or so ago both of these programs had illusions of crashing the playoff party. Things didn’t work out down the stretch and now they get each other. For Toledo they should have some pent up emotion after not making the MAC title game but they have also lost their coach Matt Campbell who has left for Iowa State. Temple has their coach locked up but they are looking to prove they are closer to the team that was 7-0 and nearly beat Notre Dame at home in front of the whole world. The Owls play a steady game based on defense while the Rockets like to crank things up. Whoever can get the tempo they want will win. I am inclined to go with Toledo.

Poinsettia Bowl

Wednesday December 23

Boise State Broncos vs. Northern Illinois Huskies

Broncos -7.5

Normally these two programs have been the mid major darlings but this year they have taken a seat behind others in their respective leagues. I am not saying the run is over but the future of these strong programs might not be as good as their recent past. At the same time both can improve their staying power with a win in this one. Boise State is the deserved favourite. They are still an efficient team that is strong on both sides of the ball. NIU may be down to its third string quarterback which puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the team. Still with extra time to prepare I think they can keep it within a TD.

Russell Athletic Bowl

Tuesday December 29

North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Baylor Bears

Bears -3

The Tar Heels showed that they can truly compete in their ACC Championship loss to Clemson. I think they may be being discounted in this one against the Bears. They can put points on the board and have the advantage of being set at QB instead of having to coach somebody up. Both of these teams ended on a low note with a loss but the Tar Heels exceeded expectations overall and I think that positivity will push them. Take North Carolina plus the points.
