SIZZLING 7: Bowl Picks!!

by Bubba Rosenbaum (@BubbaRosenbaum on Twitter)

 

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).

OVERALL RECORD VS SPREAD: 35-27-1 (55.6%)  LAST WEEK (12/5/15): 4-3 (Take a look back at my Championship Saturday Picks )

NOTE:  MY PICK IS LISTED FIRST WITH THE POINTS THAT TEAM IS GIVING OR RECEIVING IN PARENTHESES; the line used was the line at the time of the pick.
