College Football betting picks against the spread December 29-30
Bowl season is picking up with five games over the next two days. That means five college football betting picks with a chance to make some more change. We’ve done pretty well so far in bowl season. Let’s keep it going!
For those of you that are new to this, I pick every college football game every week. Not a top five. Not a top ten. All of them. Big deal, right? Lots of people make picks. Well, I do them all against the spread! I take the odds of each game and average them out at all the Vegas casinos and round to the nearest half. There will be no ties here. Ties are for the other football.
I also assign a point value based on the confidence I have in each pick. 1 means that I have little to no confidence. 5 is one I would place a decent wager on. I keep track of my record and my points back from year to year.
As we all well know, this is not an exact science. Due to the volatile nature of betting in general, this is for entertainment purposes only! I cannot be responsible for the loss of money, possessions, spouses, or limbs because of my picks. I can’t have that on my conscious.
Without further delay, let’s get to the next couple of bowl days!
(21)Oklahoma State(-1.5) vs. (18)Miami(FL) at Orlando(3): We all remember what North Carolina’s backs did to Miami, right? I’m not saying that Oklahoma State without Chuba Hubbard is up to the same talent level as the UNC backs, but they exposed Miami’s gaping hole: run defense. I’m taking the Cowboys here. Miami wont be able to stop them either.
(20)Texas(-7.5) vs. Colorado at San Antonio(4): This is too many. I would put more on this game if it weren’t only about an hour from Austin. That’s a huge disadvantage for Colorado. I still like the Ralphies outright though. I really doubt they lose by more than a touchdown.
Wake Forest vs. Wisconsin(-7.5) at Charlotte(3): I don’t buy this. The game is in North Carolina and the Badgers can’t throw. I’ll be really surprised if Wisconsin wins, let alone by more than a touchdown.
(15)Iowa(-13.5) vs. Missouri at Nashville(4): This looks too high. This Iowa offense isn’t exactly explosive. I know Missouri has had some issues stopping opposing teams, but the Iowa offense is the worst of any ranked team. Give me Missouri.
(7)Florida vs. (6)Oklahoma(-2.5) at Jerry World(4): Oklahoma owns Jerry World. This line flipped quickly with the news that Kadarius Toney. Kyle Pitts, and Trevon Grimes are all skipping the game to prepare for the draft. I’m not saying that Florida doesn’t have enough weapons without those guys. I am saying that the Oklahoma defense can stop a one-dimensional offense. Give me the Sooners.
Stay tuned throughout the bowl season for every college football game picked against the spread! I usually have my picks up about 24 hours before kickoff in order to get the most accurate spread possible. If I change one, I will post it on Twitter.
