Play the points with the biggest betting underdogs this bowl season
 | News Article by

College football bettors have nearly a month of daily action, all kicking off on December 16 with four bowl games. Bowl season presents a multitude of ways to handicap these ncaa football betting lines, and you’re never show which team will show up – especially when some programs have more than a month break between games.

If you’re a fan of picking the points during bowl season, these teams below are the biggest underdogs on the board.

Akron Zips (+22.5 vs. Florida Atlantic)
The Zips finished with seven wins but have to play in FAU’s backyard in the Boca Raton Bowl on December 19. Akron was the top team in a weak MAC East and bowed out to Toledo in the conference title game. The Zips coughed up piles of points when playing top competition, allowing 52 points to Penn State, 41 to Iowa State, and 48 and 45 points in both meetings with the Rockets.

Akron runs into an elite offense in the Owls, who sit ninth in the country with a scoring pace of 39.8 points per game behind Lane Kiffin’s playbook. Given that they do have the horses to keep pace with FAU, and the game being in Florida, there’s good reason for this sizable spread.

Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles (+15.5 vs. Florida State)
Southern Mississippi caught fire at the end of the year to not only become bowl eligible but finish with eight wins, thanks to a three-game tear to close the schedule. The Golden Eagles were rewarded for their success by meeting Florida State in the Independence Bowl on December 27. Honestly, this is a spread on name value alone, with the Seminoles holding a lot of weight with bowl bettors. However, FSU has been far from its regular standard and barely became bowl eligible with a victory in the final game of the year.

That said, the Seminoles do still have elite talent across this roster when you compare their recruiting to Southern Miss. They may be able to win this game on ability alone. It is interesting that this spread has climbed from FSU -14 despite Noles head coach Jimbo Fisher leaving Tuscaloosa to take the job at Texas A&M, star safety Derwin James skipping the bowl game to prep for the draft, and long-time defensive line coach Odell Haggins stepping in as interim coach for the bowl game.

Central Florida Knights (+9.5 vs. Auburn)
It seems like an undefeated season can’t win you more respect than a win over Alabama. Central Florida, despite being on the cusp of the College Football Playoffs, are getting nearly 10 points facing Auburn in the Peach Bowl on New Year’s Day. The Knights are in a tricky spot, with head coach Scott Frost leaving UCF to take the job at Nebraska. Frost says he wants to coach this final game but there is a good chance he won’t be able to. That blow, on top of being snubbed by the CFP committee, may be too much for the Knights to stomach – especially on this stage.

Central Florida is a tempting play at this spread, simply because of the amount of points it can put up. It averaged 49.4 points per contest – most in the nation – but hasn’t come close to facing a defense as good as Auburn. The Tigers allow only 17.3 points against and aren’t too shabby on offense either, averaging 34.4 points behind a potent rushing attack that could keep the Knights offensive attack on the sideline on January 1.
