After the INCREDIBLE Cheez-it Bowl we are 9-7. I really wanted that one. 10-6 just sounds so much better than 9-7 and it was an all time bowl for me and my brand. NINE INTERCEPTIONS and 17 Total Points. It was beautiful.
Enough about the greatest bowl of all time though. You are here for the picks. I’ll be honest I do not feel good about the first 2 games. So trust them about 0%.
- Temple -3.5 vs Duke; O/U 53.5
Hate this game. 2 things I like to bet against is an interim coach and a team that is coming into bowl season in a bad way. Well Temple has an interim coach and Duke has been awful coming into bowl season so I’m fucked there. There is a slight difference with the head coaching situation with Temple. Yes, the head coach left for GT but he had all the assistants stay behind and coach for the bowl game instead of hitting the recruiting trail. I’m going to roll with Temple -3 on this one being the hotter team. Low Confidence in this one though.
2. Miami -2 vs Wisconsin; O/U 45.5
Neither of these teams had a great year. Wisconsin started the year at #4 while Miami was ranked #8. They are both now 7-5. I’m Looking for motivation in this game. I trust Wisconsin slightly more to be motivated after losing to Miami last year in the bowl game and it’s going to be 40 degrees in New York City. A cold weather team vs them boys from Miami. Defense and a strong running game travels. I got Wisconsin at +3 which I am very thankful for. Also probably going to take the under.
3. Vanderbilt -4.5 vs Baylor; O/U 55.5
Love Vandy in this spot. They are a much more tested team playing in the SEC ranking better on offense and defense against that tougher competition. Vandy also ended the season on a 5-0 ATS run. Vandy is also 8-2 ATS in their last 10 when they are a favorite of 7 or less. Give me Vandy – 4
Good Luck to all.
