I have been pondering my Bowl betting tips as I slowly eat my way through the rest of the holiday junk food in my house. With so many Bowl games to bet on, 41 to be exact, my Bowl betting tips are fairly picky. There are some challenges to betting on College Football during Bowl season, the main one being that there is a lot of mediocre teams which makes it hard to put together picks.
However, that fuzziness clears up the closer we get to the elite level teams playing in the big money Bowls like the Rose Bowl, the Peach Bowl, and the Fiesta Bowl. There are a few more of note so let’s take a look at some NCAA betting lines to figure out where to make some money.
Bowl Betting Tips – LSU Tigers vs. Louisville Cardinals
So at this point I have eaten all of the good leftovers like turkey and mashed potatoes, and I am now reduced to eating the remnants of some stale Bugles. This perfectly sums up I how I feel about the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl– say that 3 times! LSU has had a mediocre season by their standards, while the surprising and electrifying Louisville Cardinals collapsed as the season progressed. It turns out it was a one man show after all as the phenom Lamar Jackson won the Heisman Trophy. Louisville are +3 dogs at home and I am taking it as I think they will cover.
College Football Wagers – Washington Huskies vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
The Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl sounds like a sweet and savory mess but it does have me thinking about getting a bucket of crispy chicken. This year will see the #4 Washington Huskies take on the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide. There is nothing to think about here even with a 14 point spread. If you can find a moneyline on the Tide take it no matter how ridiculous. I also like the Over 53 Total here as Nick Saban will not hesitate to run up the score.
Fiesta Bowl Lines – Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Clemson Tigers
The winner of the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl (Alabama) will face the winner of the Playstation Fiesta Bowl in the College Football Playoff National Championship. The Fiesta Bowl will be contested by the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes and the #3 Clemson Tigers. The game will be much tighter here and the Buckeyes are -2.5 road favorites in South Carolina. The Tigers are +115 dogs on the moneyline which means this will be a close one. The Over is a big 59.5 and not sure why but my gut says take Ohio -135 ML.
College Playoff Championship Game – Alabama Crimson Tide Win
After I see both of these games I will look to handicap whoever Alabama faces in the College Championship game and pick a winner (Alabama). I’m not saying its going to be the Alabama Crimson Tide who will be the top NCAA football team this year, but it will be the Alabama Crimson Tide. Happy New Year and drink some good scotch to ring in 2017.
