Totally Uninformed Bowl Game Gambling Picks – Round 2

A tough opening act for our bowl picks with three upsets on Saturday. The 300’s did call one of those upsets, though, with Boise State beating Oregon outright. With five games on the docket this week, we’ll look to get our heads above water.

Overall Bowl Record (2-3)

BOCA RATON BOWL Akron vs. Florida Atlantic – Dec. 19, 7 p.m. ET
I expect Florida Atlantic to roll, but can’t help but take the points. AKRON +22

FRISCO BOWL SMU vs. Louisiana Tech –  Dec. 20, 8 p.m. ET
Two middle of the pack teams, but SMU plays in a slightly better conference. SMU -4

GASPARILLA BOWL Temple vs. Florida International – Dec. 21, 8 p.m. ET
Florida International has more to prove and is playing closer to home. FIU +7

BAHAMAS BOWL UAB vs. Ohio – Dec. 22,  12:30 p.m. ET
UAB’s only loss since Halloween is to Florida. They feel like the better team at the moment and I expect them to cover. UAB +7.5

FAMOUS IDAHO POTATO BOWL Wyoming vs. Central Michigan – Dec. 22, 4 p.m. ET
It’s the blue turf bowl! Central Michigan has won five in a row while Wyoming has stumbled down the stretch. CENTRAL MICHIGAN +3

(All lines are from from the Westgate Las Vegas as of 12/19, except Wyoming vs. Central Michigan. I couldn’t find that line from Westgate, so that line is from Bovada.)
