College Football betting picks against the spread December 31
We only have three games on New Year’s Eve this year and both of the scheduled night games were COVIDed. We can still make some money to close out 2020. Let’s check out how!
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!
(24)Tulsa(-1.5) vs. Mississippi State at Fort Worth(2): This one makes me nervous. You can throw out most of the stats pertaining to the Bulldogs. They are a far different team than they were, say, six weeks ago. K.J. Costello is benched. Kylin Hill opted out. The defense is better. However, but the Bulldogs have really struggled against tough defenses this year. That’s Tulsa. Give me the Dust Devils.
Ball State vs. (22)San Jose State(-9.5) at Tucson, AZ(2): I want to put more on this, but every time I bet against Ball State, they burn me. The Cardinals are a solid team and their passing offense is plenty good enough to keep this interesting. I think the Spartans win, but I’ll say they don’t cover.
West Virginia(-6.5) vs. Army at Memphis(4): I don’t buy this. The Big 12(10) has had a good bowl season so far, but this is a hiccup. Army straight up. They have been getting disrespected by Vegas all year.
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.
