Four Hottest Bets Entering Bowl Season

College football bowl season is upon us. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to study all 80-plus teams or you don’t care about the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl; we’ve done the research for you. Here are the four hottest bets entering bowl season that should end your season with some extra money in the bank.

Fresno State Bulldogs: Nine Straight UNDERS

Fresno State’s combination of excellent defense and grinding offense has made it the best UNDER play in the nation heading into bowl season. The Bulldogs are holding opponents to just 17.2 points per game this season – and that number drops to 12.3 if you remove their non-conference games vs Alabama and Washington.

The Bulldogs will play the Houston Cougars in the Hawaii Bowl. Houston’s offense is good but not great, sitting in the middle of the pack in most major offensive categories. And considering the Cougars had issues scoring against some subpar defenses (Tulsa and Tulane especially), then scoring against Fresno State likely isn’t going to happen.

Northwestern Wildcats: Seven Straight ATS Wins

The last time Northwestern failed to cover came on October 7 in a 31-7 loss to Penn State. Since that defeat, the Wildcats have won and covered in seven consecutive games. It has not always been easy for Clayton Thorson and company, as they’ve needed overtime on three occasions but they have still managed to pick up the wins.

Northwestern will be the favorite taking on the 7-5 Kentucky Wildcats in the Music City Bowl. UK is coming off back-to-back beatdowns at the hands of Georgia and Louisville – the Wildcats were outscored by a combined 86-30. Both those games saw Kentucky’s defense struggle to stop the run, a big issue facing Justin Jackson and Northwestern.

LSU Tigers: Six Straight ATS Wins

It has not been a banner year for LSU but the Tigers really got it together in the second half of the season. LSU is 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS in its past six games. Since losing to Alabama, LSU is 3-0 SU and ATS despite facing an average closing spread of -15.5. A big reason has been the defense (of course) holding several lackluster offenses in check.

There might be another lackluster offense in store for LSU when the Tigers take on Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl. The Fighting Irish spent the bulk of the season as one of the highest-scoring offenses in the nation but have averaged just 17.3 ppg in their past three. LSU can win this one and cover but its defense will need to contain the Jekyll And Hyde offense of Notre Dame.

Wyoming Cowboys: Six Straight UNDERS

There is no way around it: Wyoming has been a disappointment this season. Quarterback Josh Allen was supposed to bring the program to relevancy but his mediocre play and mediocre teammates have resulted in the team struggling to score. During Wyoming’s six-game UNDER stretch, the team is averaging 20.7 ppg – a number that is inflated thanks to its 42-3 beating of New Mexico.

However, Wyoming will play a Central Michigan Chippewas team that is flying offensively in the Potato Bowl. Central Michigan is averaging 41.2 ppg in its past five – all of which ended up going OVER. Wyoming’s defense has been great at stopping opponents this season but has not faced a high-flying offense like Central Michigan since their non-conference schedule.
