CHERIBUNDI TART CHERRY BOCA RATON BOWL PREVIEW

Embed from Getty Images


Dec. 19 Boca Raton Bowl: Akron Zips (7-6) vs Florida Atlantic Owls (10-3) 7 pm EST

The Las Vegas bookmakers believe that this will be the biggest mismatch among all of the bowl games. The Conference USA champion Florida Atlantic Owls are currently are a 22.5 point favorite against the Mid-American Conference runner up Akron Zips. The line originally opened up with the Owls as a 17 point favorite, which would have been the best time to make a play if you like the Owls.

Both teams are 9-4 against the spread this season. FAU is 8-2 ATS as a favorite, however they were only greater than a 20 point favorite once this season and failed to cover in a 31-12 win over Charlotte on Nov. 25. FAU also failed to cover against the spread in a 34-31 loss in their one game against a Mid-American Conference opponent this season, the Owls were a 1.5 point underdog heading into that game.

Akron defeated the one common opponent that these two teams had, Buffalo 21-20 on Oct. 28. Akron was 6-3 as an underdog against the spread this season.

This match-up to me has similarities to the way Akron matched up with Mid-American Conference Champion Toledo. Toledo defeated Akron 48-21 on October 21 and then again 45-28 in the conference championship game.

Akron has only averaged 329 yards per game this season which ranks them 118th out 130 FBS teams and ten of their 13...

Dec. 16 (Early) Bowl Game Predictions

Embed from Getty Images


He’s a quick look at the three early FBS bowl games for Saturday Dec. 16, along with my predictions for the games and if I am choosing to play the games or not.

New Orleans Bowl: Troy Trojans (10-2) vs North Texas Mean Green (9-4) 1pm EST

The line has now climbed to Troy -7, but I made this pick on Dec. 5 when Troy still only -5.5 favorite to my subscribers. The Troy Trojans have faced better competition this season and have a much better defense than North Texas. The Trojans defense ranks 11th in the nation in points allowed, giving up less than 18 points per game, while North Texas ranks 105th in the nation allowing almost 34 points per game.

The Trojans were 3-1 in non-conference games overall this season including a 24-21 win over LSU on September 30.

Get Sports Strong Predictions: Troy 38 North Texas 24

Pick: Troy -5.5

Cure Bowl: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (6-6) vs Georgia State Panthers(6-5) 2:30pm EST


This is not one of the match-ups that I am looking forward to actually watching but I definitely think there is a good play here.

Georgia State has not beaten a team with a winning record all season. Georgia State’s six wins came against teams with a combined overall record of 16-56. The Panthers have also dropped their last four games...


North Carolina A&T Aggies vs Grambling State Tigers (December 16 Noon EST)

The Celebration Bowl, features the MEAC Champion North Carolina A&T Aggies (11-0) and the SWAC Champion Grambling State Tigers (11-1). Even though the Aggies are ranked #7 in the nation and Grambling is ranked #12 in the FCS coaches poll, the MEAC and SWAC met in this game for the Black College National Championship, instead of completing in the playoff.

This may not be a FBS game, but the Celebration Bowl could very well end up being the most exciting bowl game played on Saturday.

The Aggies are averaging 36.4 points a game and only allowing 12.3 to their opponents. The Tigers come in averaging 32.7 points per game and allowing 20.4.

Both teams have benefited from very strong quarterback play this season. Grambling is led by former Ole Miss transfer Devante Kincade at quarterback. Kincade has thrown 21 touchdown passes verus only three interceptions on the season. Kincade has also rushed for six touchdowns on the season.

North Carolina A&T quarterback Lamar Raynard has thrown for 26 touchdowns against only five interceptions and three rushing touchdowns. The Aggies also have the MEAC leading rusher Marquell Cartwright who comes in with 1080 yards on the season.

This will be the third Celebration Bowl, with each of the...

Low number here as the Warriors are only favored by 5. I like the Warriors here even with Curry, still plenty of weapons to carry the scoring load.

Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers Free Pick

Embed from Getty Images


(Get Sports Strong 2017 Record on NFL Picks 22-18)

The Cleveland Browns 0-11 and Los Angeles Chargers 5-6 will face each other Sunday in a rematch from last season. Currently both teams are headed in opposite directions when it comes to momentum. The Browns have been historically terrible, with a 1-29 record in their 30 games overall. While the Chargers have now gone 5-2 over their last seven games, after a 0-4 start, and are very much alive in the AFC West playoff picture. However, the Charges are the only team to lose to the Browns since Dec. 13, 2015. The Chargers were defeated by the Browns 20-17, in Cleveland on week 16 last season.

The Browns will look for a spark with the freakishly talented wide receiver Josh Gordon expected to return. What is unexpected is how effective Gordon will be. Gordon has not played in at regular season game since Dec. 21, 2014, still the Chargers will definitely need to know where he is on the field at all times.

Currently the Chargers are 14 point favorites. I am staying away from the spread here. Although 14 points is high, you will not catch me advising anyone to use their money to bet on the Browns.

Cleveland has been terrible both straight up and against the spread all the way around. Cleveland is 6-20-1 over their last 27 games against the AFC and 5-15-1 against the spread...

We were 2-2-1 last week on our college football picks. On the season so far we have a 42-36 record not including Money Line Cup Cakes or Parlays.
