Predictions, picks for every bowl game

College football bowl season is my absolute favorite time of the year. For the most part, bowl games feature matchups between teams that have yet to face each other. You get teams that are making their first trip to a bowl or their first bowl in years, teams that are looking to ride a win streak, and seniors looking to showcase their talents one last time.

Keeping track of player opt-outs is key. If you’re looking for general tips on betting during bowl season, check out a few pointers here. 

With just a few weeks left of the 2021 season, I’ll be providing some thoughts, considerations and picks for every bowl game. Because there are so many, there will be opportunities to cash. Hopefully, I can provide you with some of those opportunities.

The plan: If I have a strong conviction, I will label it as “pick” rather than “prediction.” If you don’t see a game you’re looking for, check back periodically as this will be a running blog and posts will be added through the College Football Playoff.

Also, make sure to follow me on Twitter. That’s where I will post any last-minute player opt-outs, injuries, or coaching changes.
