Betting With The Last Snap is a Better Investment Than Bitcoin and Today’s Bowl Picks.

The college football season is probably the best time of the year. Some may argue that CFB fails to compare to the NFL, but in terms of betting on games, CFB is easy money.

Yesterday, I went 2-1 bringing me to a record of 11-6. If you had made picks with me, starting with Bowl games, I would have gained you 4 units, while an investment in Bitcoin would have lost you about 15 percent of your investment. Just a thought. As always, some picks may be made on twitter, so be sure to follow me @thelastsnap_. But here is the slate for today.

Southern Mississippi vs. Florida State

Bowl: Walk On’s Independence Bowl | Time: 12:30 PM CT

 

Boston College vs. Iowa

Bowl: New Era Pinstripe Bowl | Time: 4:15 PM CT

Line: BC +125

Boston College is a sneaky good team. This year, they beat UVA 41-10, Florida State 35-3 and Syracuse 42-14. Only losses this year were to #23 NC State, #16 Virginia Tech, #2 Clemson (who lost to Syracuse), Notre Dame and Wake Forest, all bowl eligible teams. Iowa had similar successes in the year, including a low scoring defeat at the hands off Penn State and beat Ohio State 55-24, but lost to Purdue, all games were at Kinnick. Both teams, rely heavily on the run, and have stellar backs to do the job. It will be a cold, windy game at Yankee Stadium, BC wins outright.

Arizona vs. Purdue

Bowl: Foster Farms Bowl | Time: 7:30 PM CT

Line: Over 65

Arizona led the Pac-12 in points (41.8 ppg, #6 in the country), in rushing yards (324 ypg, #3 in the country) which is all due to QB Kalid Tate, who missed the first 4 games of the season and led the Wildcats to a 5-2 record before missing the last game of the season due to a shoulder injury. Purdue ranks in the top 20 in scoring defense, allowing only 19.3 ppg and in the top 30 in rushing defense, allowing only 133 yards a game. However, the x-factor will be the QB play of Elijah Sindelar. On the season, Sindelar shared time with David Blough before Blough suffered a season ending injury against Illinois. Since then, he has thrown for 764 yards, 7 TD’s and only 1 interception, compared to 939 yards, 8 TDs and 5 interceptions when sharing duties. If Sindelar and Purdue’s rush defense can slow down Khalil Tate, Purdue has a chance. This should be a good game for for those just getting out of work today.

Texas vs. Missouri

Bowl: Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl| Time: 8 PM CT

Line: Mizzou -3

Mizzou is on a 6 game win streak, averaging 51 points a game, and beating teams by 30 points. This team is rolling. Texas on the other hand is dealing with transfers, suspensions and declarations for the draft. This game will be a cake walk for Mizzou, Texas will show up not wanting to play.
