Each week, I’ve chosen seven games that I thought had favorable odds.
However, with the bowl season about to kick off in just over three hours and the end of the college football season in sight, I’ve picked all the games against the spread.
My picks for the first six bowls are below. The remainder of picks will be released on Monday afternoon (12/21).
