Trends to Consider for Three Bowl Games

December 7, 2016

The college bowl season is ready to kick off with over 40 games. There are just too many games for most bettors to thoroughly research, but here are three that have trends that could help put something extra in the bank.

The Temple Owls did not cover their opening game of the season back on September 2. However, since that loss at the hands of Army, Temple is an amazing 12-0 against the spread. At the same time, Temple is 10-2 straight up over that period. Each of the two losses was by 7 points or less.

Temple plays in this year’s Military Bowl against Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons have had trouble scoring this season and the likelihood of them scoring enough to cover is not good. Temple owns the No. 8 defense in the nation.

Penn State is disappointed not to make the College Football Playoff after winning the Big Ten championship but will face USC on New Year’s Day in the Rose Bowl.

The Nittany Lions were 9-0 SU over their final 9 games of the season, to win the Big Ten over opponents such as Ohio State and Michigan. Not only has Penn State won outright each of its past 9 games but the Nittany Lions are also 9-0 ATS over that span.

The offense for Penn State is averaging over 35 points per game during the 9-game winning streak. Quarterback Trace McSorely has thrown 20 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions during that same span.

Texas A&M is 0-8 ATS in its past 8 games played. The Texas A&M season started with a great deal of promise, but ended in much disappointment. The Aggies were 4-0 SU as well as ATS to begin the season, but closed out 4-4 SU and 0-8 ATS.

Over its last eight games, the Aggies had spreads as favorites of -25.5, -43.5 and -19.5. Those are tough nuts to crack.

Texas A&M will meet Kansas State in the Texas Bowl. The Aggies are a slight favorite when the line opened. Trevor Knight the Texas A&M star quarterback should be recovered from a shoulder injury, which will be a big boost to the Aggies offense.
