Previewing Best Bowl Games Of The Upcoming Weekend

Posted by Stan Simmons on 12/19/2014 7:06:02 PM

Bowl season is about to kickoff as December 20th marks the day college football teams begin taking the field. The four-team playoff won't happen for another week and a half, but with numerous games taking place this weekend sports fans and bettors will have plenty of action to follow.

Utah Utes vs. Colorado State Rams

Saturday December 20, 2014 – 3:30 PM ET

Odds: Utah -3

The 22nd ranked Utah Utes are in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl against the Colorado State Rams, a possible slap in the face considering three of their four losses were to ranked teams, and three of their eight victories were against the UCLA Bruins, Stanford Cardinal, and USC Trojans. The Utes, although not a power team, are one of the most underrated squads in the country and 6-7” quarterback Travis Wilson is a huge reason why. Wilson threw for a career-high 2,012 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, but it's his four interceptions that stand out as he takes great care of the ball and helps move it down the field with his arm as well as his legs.

Pick: Utah

Western Michigan Broncos vs. Air Force Falcons

Saturday December 20, 2014 – 5:45 PM ET

Odds: Air Force -1

The Air Force Falcons are one of the best running teams in the country as Jacobi Owens, their leading rusher, has 1,054 yards on the ground thanks to a 5.2 yards per carry average. Their quarterback Kale Peterson is also a threat to run as he's thrown the ball 162 times all season, and ran it a total of 157 times. Air Force doesn't have many blowout victories under their belt this season, but the Western Michigan Broncos have their fair share including three-straight victories of 20 points or more. Western Michigan did play a couple power conference teams this season, both ending in losses, making it likely the Falcons are able to run the ball effectively on Saturday, which as a result makes them the smart sports betting pick.

Pick: Air Force

Marshall Thundering Herd vs. Northern Illinois Huskies

Tuesday December 23, 2014 – 6 PM ET

Odds: Marshall -10

The Marshall Thundering Herd have made plenty of headlines this season as their quarterback Rakeem Cato threw for 3,622 yards and 37 touchdowns while etching his name alongside other Marshall greats Chad Pennington and Byron Leftwich. Marshall finished the year with just one loss, one more than their opponent in this game. The Northern Illinois Huskies have won seven straight games, and their rushing attack that averages 252 yards per game is a huge reason why. They lost their long-time starting quarterback after last season, and as a result have shifted to more of a running team with new quarterback Drew Hare throwing for 2,097 yards and running for another 850, second on the team. Marshall has the more electric offense with Cato under center, and they should have no problem covering the spread and beating the Huskies of Northern Illinois.

Pick: Marshall
