COLLEGE FOOTBALL OPPOSITE PICKS:
What are Opposite Picks? I take 7 games, give 7K reasons why I like one team and then…go opposite. Why? Because despite all the stats, trends, angles, hunches, injury reports & weather reports…Nobody, but Nobody Beats the Boys in Vegas.

BOWL VERSION #1

UTAH ST. -7.5 vs. N. Texas
NT beat Arkansas & SMU earlier in the year. But both of those teams stink. Aggies finished 10-2 SU & 9-3 ATS. NT meanwhile finished on a dismal 1-7 ATS run. UGHH. They were actually 5-3 SU in those games so that means after the Arkansas & SMU wins they were over rated the rest of the season. Tough laying more than a TD in a bowl game, but UST will play inspired FB & win this one going away.
OPPOSITE PICK: NORTH TEXAS +7.5 = LOSE

FRESNO ST. -6 vs. Arizona St.
Pac 12 is only 4-11 SU & 2-13 ATS their last two bowl seasons. Ariz. St.is a brutal $$ burning, empty the brinks truck on Route 3 4-9 SU & ATS its last 13 bowls. Now you throw the Sun Devils best WR isn’t playing. Throw in FST h/c Jeff Tedford is an amazing, computer crashing, telephone ringing, website down 21-6 SU & 19-6-1 ATS in his 2+yrs @ Fresno. LOVE Fresno St. OPPOSITE PICK: ARIZONA ST. +6 = LOSE

SAN DIEGO ST. +3 vs. Ohio
I get to play ON a Mountain West team in San Diego St. & go against a MAC team in Ohio. MAC & Pac 12 have been by far the two worst conferences in Bowl games over the past couple of seasons. Mountain West is a nifty (80’s term) 6-1 SU & ATS vs. the MAC in bowl games the last few years….MAC bowl teams are a $$ burning 7-16 ATS when they give up 26+pts in the regular season. The Underdog is 13-0-1 ATS in SDST games. LOVE getting 3pts w/ SDST.
OPPOSITE PICK: OHIO -3

ARMY -3 vs. Houston
The prevailing thought would be to play Houston here. BUT don’t. Keep in mind the prevailing thought last year was to play San Diego St. vs. Army and the Cadets put 42 on the board in a 7pt win. Same will happen here. Houston’s star QB is out and his replacement stinks. Their best defensive player is skipping the game to prep for the pros. Houston finished the season losing 3 of 4. Army meanwhile is sky high after beating Navy last weekend. They’ve won 8 in a row…10-2 on the season. Their goofy option offense will cause Houston’s run defense which is ranked 98th out of the 130 1-A real teams fits all game….125th overall.
OPPOSITE PICK: HOUSTON +3

BOISE ST. – 3 vs. Boston College
Boise St. is only a 3pt favorite over lousy BC? Are you kidding me? BC has ONE decent win all year. They finished 7-5 but that includes wins over cupcakes UMASS, Holy Cross, Louisville & Wake Forest. Topeka High could be 7-5 with their schedule. Outside of a decent wins against Temple & Miami, they lost to every good team they’ve played. Boise St. messed up against Oklahoma St. on the road and somehow lost at home to SDST., but they finished up winning 7 of their last 8. They lost in the MTW title game, but they still relish any chance they get to play one of the “Big Boys.” So this will be like a title game to them, while it will be meaningless for BC. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Boise St.
OPPOSITE PICK: BOSTON COLLEGE +3

GEORGIA TECH -5.5 vs. Minnesota
Longtime GT head coach Paul Johnson is retiring after this game. He’s been at Tech for 11 years. So these kids are going to be sky high for this game. I always look for incentives in these meaningless early bowls. Clearly GT has it and Minnesota doesn’t. Tech isn’t bad either. They finished 6-2 down the stretch hitting the 30pt mark in 7 of their 12 games this year. Their option offense will give Minnesota’s mediocre run defense (ranked 76th) fits all game much like Army w/ Houston. Gophers lost 6 of 9 after starting the season 3-0. If not for rigged win at Wisconsin to close out the regular season they wouldn’t even have been bowl eligible. GT rolls.
OPPOSITE PICK: MINNESOTA + 5.5


HAWAII – 1.5 vs. La Tech
Hawaii Bowl. Do you think a bunch of mopes from Louisiana are going to be able stay concentrated in Hawaii—land of BB…Boobs & Broads? No way. Teams that regularly make the trip to the Islands struggle. Can you imagine a bunch of redneck, swamp people wannabe’s handling a bunch of near naked broads asking them if they want to get “Lia-d.” Uggh, this has disaster for LT written all over it. They have won 4 straight bowl games. BUT they were all close to home. Their farthest road trip this year was a 1 hour flight to Alabama. Good Luck flying 15 hours to Hawaii. Which they’ve done 5 times by the way…0-5 SU & ATS. And this is a Tech team that lost 3 of 4. You have to be the biggest bird brain, butt-head, pin-head, meat-head, moron, mutton-mouth, dope, ding-bat, dirt-bag, duntz, dork, idiot, kook, knucklehead, cretin, simpleton, slacky, imbecile, ignoramus, jerk, jackass in the world to put American $$ on La Tech. OPPOSITE PICK: LA TECH + 1.5
