College Football Bowl Game Upset PicksJosh Bailey
The best way to obviously experience college football bowl game upset picks is if you pick them and you bet football spreads to take advantage of them, so I will pick and you will bet got it?! These are some of the early College Bowl bets with teams such as Eastern Michigan, Navy, and SDSU that you may not be used to making football bets on, but trust me and you will be building a trust in no time.
College Football Bowl Game Upset Picks
Las Vegas Bowl: Houston Cougars (9-3) vs San Diego Aztecs (10-3)
When: Saturday, Dec. 17 at 3:30 pm ET
Where: Sam Boyd Stadium – Las Vegas, NV
Odds: Houston -4
Analysis: Everybody is going to be talking about how the Houston Cougars defeated the Oklahoma Sooners, who were ranked 3rd at the time, but that was on the opening Saturday of the entire season people!
Houston lost to Navy, SMU and then Memphis to close the season, so don’t tell me this team is great, because they are basically just good. Also, since coach Tom Herman said bye bye to be a Texas Longhorn this team is going to be meh or nah or ooohhh on this game.
Donnel Pumphrey will finish with 2,000 yards this year and is going to be quite a show to watch as he runs over the carnage left at Houston after their leader left them high and dry. SDSU may have had a blip against Colorado State to finish regular season, but do not worry about these guys showing up motivated.
Bowl Upset Pick: San Diego State Aztecs +4 AND bet them at +160 on Moneyline
Popeyes Bahamas Bowl: Eastern Michigan Eagles (7-5) vs Old Dominion Monarchs (9-5)
When: Friday, Dec. 23 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Thomas Robinson Stadium – Nassau, Bahamas
Odds: Old Dominion -4
Analysis: Quarterback Brogan Roback didn’t start until 4 games in this year and still has 2,394 yards and 16 touchdowns. He is excellent at finding the open receiver which is supported by 10 guys that all have receptions in the double digits.
Old Dominion has a quarterback, David Washington, that has a great season going with over 2,600 yards passing and very few mistakes, and for the Monarchs to win this they will have to cause some turnovers.
I don’t think Old Dominion will be able to keep up with the offensive pace that QB Brogan Roback has the offense clicking on now, and I think this is a game that the Eastern Michigan guys upset Old Dominion.
Bowl Upset Pick: Eastern Michigan Eagles +160 on the moneyline
Armed Forces Bowl: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (8-5) vs Navy Midshipmen (9-4)
When: Friday, Dec. 23 at 4:30 pm ET
Where: Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, Texas
Odds: Louisiana Tech -4
Analysis: Everybody knows that Army ended Navy’s 14-year reign of winning the Army-Navy game this year, and because of that I think this College Bowl betting line is off a bit.
Navy had a great season when you look at the whole thing instead of just the end, and that included a 28-27 victory of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish towards the end of the season. They had some problems with QB injuries, but this team is perseverant and is one of my College Football Bowl Game Upset Picks.
Bowl Upset Pick: Navy +4 and if you’re bold take a shot at the Moneyline
