A unit is recommended for 12/21 free picks below. Of the games I list as strong leans, play these if you already had a lean to these plays yourself (or you just want action on). All the games listed below as a pick are all tracked via Action Network.
Listen to the latest podcast. We cover Central Michigan vs San Diego State (New Mexico Bowl), Boise State vs Washington (Las Vegas Bowl), and Georgia Southern vs Liberty (Cure Bowl). We also give you tips for betting the College Football Bowl Season.
This is going to be a low scoring game with a match-up between a decent Central Michigan offense going up against a very good San Diego State defense. The Chippewas are pretty balanced on the offensive side of the bad, lead by Quiten Dormandy at QB.
San Diego State on offense will control the ball and they have a very slow tempo. They also will look to run the ball with Washington and Bell the majority of the time but can pass with Agnew when need be. It is a very balanced and pro-style offense and they rank low in explosive plays. Ultimately, I think the Aztecs pull this off with a score of 17-14. SDSU has a very good defense and it will be on full display in the game. If this was a regular-season game, I would play the under at 1.5 units but will keep it conservative with a one-unit play (we discuss why there is more variance in bowl season on the podcast above).
Look to live bet Central Michigan if they get a lead in the 2nd half. This SDSU team is not built to come from behind.
Pick- Under 40
Clippers are coming off of a tough home loss to the Rockets on Thursday and the Spurs beat the Nets at home on Thursday also. Clippers should be in a good bounce-back spot tonight, but with it being on the road, scares me a bit. Also, Kawhi returning back to San Antonio most likely means a big game for Leonard.
Hard to say if this line will move, but I like it at the -5.5 mark. I also lean over 223.5 also in this spot.
Pick- Clippers -5.5
The Eagles head into Spokane to take on the Bulldogs. I do expect this line to move to -21 by tip-off. One thing I want to mention is Gonzaga’s home-court advantage isn’t as big as it typically is as all the students are gone for winter break.
Having said that, the Bulldogs are playing very good basketball and pose plenty of mismatches for the Eagles. I just don’t see the Eagles keeping this close down the stretch and take the Bulldogs to win 91-70.
Pick- Gonzaga -20
Strong Lean- Under 164
