Here’s our second week of Bowl Games. You have to admit it these charts look really professional. Thanks to our crack production staff for that.

I hope they play as well as they look! Good luck everyone.

Dec. 27 Florida State UCLA -4½ and 40½ -5½ and 40½ -4 and 36

 

Not much interest in this contest — it figures to be a stiff. But it’s the only game this day so a small bet on UCLA may help you develop a rooting interest.

Dec. 28 Kansas State Rutgers -7 and 45 -7½ and 45 -6 and 36

 

A play on the under is appropriate here as the Rutgers club has an exceptional defense with only an average offense.

Dec. 28 Texas A&M California -5 and 52 -5 and 51½ -6 and 52

 

The famous 12th man may not be enough to help A&M here as they don’t figure to bring him to San Diego.

Dec. 29 Missouri Oregon St -3½ and 52 -4 and 53 -3 and 48

 

I like the dog here a little bit as they are a fun team to watch. If the total goes a few points higher you can bet it under.

Dec. 29 Houston So. Carolina -6 and 55½ -7 and 56 -4 and 52

 

Houston plays like Texas Tech by keeping the ball in the air. South Carolina doesn’t score too much, but they’re a good team. This is one of the better match ups this bowl season.

Dec. 29 Minnesota Texas Tech - 6½ and 65½ -7 and 66 -5½ and 60

 

This figures to be a fun game to watch but I think the total is too high and will probably go higher. An under play may be available on game day.

Dec. 30 Iowa Texas -9½ and 53 -11½ and 53½ -12 and 52

 

Last year’s champs still have a good team and I think they will prove it in this spot. Also, they are playing in Texas and they will show off their speed on the artificial surface before a predominantly home crowd.

Dec. 30 Georgia VA. Tech - 2½ and 38 -3 and 39½ Pick and 24

 

This may be the play of parlay of the year, not only do they have the wrong favorite but the total is 14 points over my number.

Dec. 30 Nevada Miami FL -3½ and 43 -3 and 44½ -2½ and 48

 

I wonder how any Miami players can possibly get in trouble in Boise, Idaho. This figures to be a grind it out game that may be watched by nobody.

Jan. 1 Nebraska Auburn -2½ and 45 -3 and 44½ -2½ and 48

 

This should be a great game but I can’t even guess the winner. I’d lean towards Auburn because of the SEC being a stronger conference.

 

DATE UNDERDOG FAVORITE CURRENT LINE OPENING LINE SID’S LINE

Jan. 1 Penn State Tennessee -4 and 41 -5 and 41 -6½ and 40

 

I’ll favor Tennessee for superior quarterback play and a lot more speed. Two good defenses and one good offense.

 

DATE UNDERDOG FAVORITE CURRENT LINE OPENING LINE SID’S LINE

Jan. 1 Wisconsin Arkansas -1½ and 45 -1½ and 45 -3½ and 44

 

Arkansas’ great running back will steal the show in this game which easily may be a blowout for the Razorbacks.

Jan. 1 Georgia Tech West VA. -7½ and 48½ -7 and 47½ -10 and 46

 

Tech’s QB Ball suspended for this game. Bet it NOW. West VA’s great running game gets the money here.

 

DATE UNDERDOG FAVORITE CURRENT LINE OPENING LINE SID’S LINE

Jan. 1 Michigan USC -1½ and 47 Mich -1½, 47 Mich -3, 40

 

I took Michigan -1 and a half early because USC hasn’t faced a defense like this before. This team almost beat Ohio State in Columbus, losing by only a field goal. It just doesn’t add up but I usually like games like this.

 

DATE UNDERDOG FAVORITE CURRENT LINE OPENING LINE SID’S LINE

Jan 1 Boise State Oklahoma -7½ and 51 -8½ and 51 -8 and 52

 

Not too much to choose between these two. It shouldn’t matter anyway as we probably haven’t got enough chips left by now to make a bet with.
