The NCAA Football Season is over and let the real fun begin. Some of the very best bowl games to bet on are the early ones for the simple fact that many of the teams playing backed into the bowl invite. Many, many, of the bowl teams that are participating this weekend, would be waxed by most of the top-25 teams, not all, but many. There are a few fantastic games on tap that involve top-25 teams Vs. unranked teams, such as Washington Vs. Boise State. We can’t think of a better game to watch this weekend than this one. It’s going to be tough, it should be somewhat high-scoring and either team can walk away with the win. What we suggest to betters is find betting options, don’t settle for simply the spread, the money line, or the totals. Find a great online bookmaker that is willing to offer you game props, player props, and more. Broaden your horizons to win better money and have much more fun.
TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE FRISCO BOWL
Utah State (7-5) Vs. Kent State (6-6)
Toyota Stadium, Frisco, Texas
Friday, December 20th
6:30 PM ET ESPN2
USU -6.5, O/U 67
This game has “barnburner” written all over it and while we like Utah State to win big, we definitely like the over. Both teams have backed their way into this bowl game – although Utah should have been better. Kent State will not match up well with Utah States’ offense and Utah State gives up 29 points per game. This one could go in the 70s’! We like Utah State and over, but our money is squarely on the over.
CHERIBUNDI BOCA RATON BOWL
SMU (10-2) Vs. FAU (10-3)
FAU Football Stadium, Boca Raton, Florida
Saturday, December 21st
3:30 PM ET ABC
SMU -3, O/U 70.5
Both of these teams can score in a hurry and this will be a fast and fun game to watch. Look for a great “team totals” line on both FAU and SMU and bet the over! This is a home game for FAU, and they will definitely love playing in the friendly confines, however, FAU is in for a surprise and we differ from public opinion on this game. The public says that SMU has a 50% chance to win. Hogwash! SMU has beaten No. 25 TCU, they nearly beat No. 23 Navy and they come in having played a much tougher schedule than FAU. We have to like SMU and over 70.5.
MITSUBISHI MOTORS LAS VEGAS BOWL
No. 19 Boise State (12-1) Vs. Washington (7-5)
Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada
Saturday, December 21st
7:30 PM ET ABC
WASH -3.5, O/U 49.5
The Washington Huskies were supposed to be better than this and they indeed were in the beginning. Then the bottom fell out for this team and head coach Chris Petersen announced his resignation. That’s a shame. Coach Petersen is one of the very best in the game and he is flat-out underrated. His talent pool let him down this season. Boise State always gets a pass from the top-25 and they rarely cover the spread. Coach Harsin needs to be booted, but because Boise is a “good old boy” city and he grew up and went to high school in the Boise area, everything he touches turns to gold. When Chris Petersen took the Boise State Broncos to the Fiesta Bowl in 2007 it was indeed a surprise and even better, he beat Bob Stoops and the Sooners. Those days are long gone in Boise and there is an
overall lack of commitment to legitimate scheduling as well as coaching. BSU/Harsin is complaisant to appear in these types of bowl games, Petersen is not. Washington picks up this win and covers the spread. Huskies -3.5.
