Possible college football bowl game bankers and busts


Here are a few to watch out for

Possible college football bowl game bankers and busts | News Article by

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Bowl Season! The very best, or at least the most adequate, college football programs in the land will face off in a month-long feast of non-conference clashes, culminating with the two national semifinal games and the CFP National Championship Game.

But before those big bowls happen, football bettors can find solid value on ncaa betting lines when it comes to the postseason motivations of the other 76 teams involved in bowl games this month. Here are a few to watch out for:

Wisconsin Badgers
Win or lose in the Big Ten title game, the Badgers still have plenty to prove. Wisconsin scored a big victory against LSU in the season opener and gave Ohio State all it could take, losing to the Buckeyes in overtime. Right now, the Badgers seemed destined for the Rose Bowl taking on either Colorado or Washington. Wisconsin wasn’t expected to be as strong as it was in 2016, just Year 2 under head coach Paul Chryst. He’ll look to finish the season strong and build momentum for what should be a very competitive 2017 campaign in the Big Ten.

Baylor Bears
There is a thick dark cloud hanging over the Baylor football program, and 2016 has been a season to forget for the Bears. They barely got bowl eligibility thanks to a dismal defense that allows 31 points against per game. Baylor hasn’t been able to offset that weakness with its usual fireworks on offense, failing to crack the 24-point mark in three of its last four games heading into a season finale with Kansas State. Right now, the Bears are projected to face everyone's favorite underdog Boise State in the Cactus Bowl. And with the state of the program – on and off the field – don’t expect BU boosters to travel much this holiday season.

Houston Cougars
Houston was a giant killer in 2016, knocking off contenders Oklahoma and Louisville this season. Those big wins pushed head coach Tom Herman to the top of the short list for many programs searching for their next head coach and Texas eventually swayed Herman away from their in-state cousin. That leaves the Cougars with defensive coordinator Todd Orlando as their head coach this bowl season, when UH is projected to play in the Military Bowl versus Army. It will be interesting to see where the players' heads are at come December 27 – many of which may be leaning toward transferring with the future of the program up in the air.

Air Force Falcons
Air Force stumbled in October with a three-game losing skid that took them out of contention in the Mountain West Conference. But since then, the Falcons have been flying high on a five-game winning streak, taking three of those victories on the road. Air Force closed the season with a win over Boise State as a 7.5-point home underdog and is pegged to open bowl season versus Texas-San Antonio in the New Mexico Bowl. This program is rolling and should have starting QB Nate Romine back in action before December 17 – not that it matters much in the triple option.
