College Bowl Predictions

The bowl schedule and matchups were just released and I’m ready to make my early predictions. I’ve picked the straight up winner for each bowl game below. Click on the link for a more in-depth look at the bowl betting odds.

Over the next few weeks, our staff will be taking a more in-depth look at each contest and providing a free betting lean. I’ll include links to those previews on this page, so be sure to check back often.

Keep in mind that these predictions do not necessarily reflect the premium pick I will have on the game. A lot can happen between now and when the game actually takes place. If new information becomes available, like a coach getting fired or a key player deciding not to play, that could definitely sway my opinion on a game.
