College Football Bowls: Predicted Scores and Betting Picks
Tom Hauck/Getty Images

All 34 Bowl Games are picked with a score as well as a pick against the spread. These statistics are simply my opinion and should by no means be considered guaranteed betting profits.

Also included as a bonus at the end of the picks is a "top-five non-BCS bowl games to watch for" ranking and a "top-five upset alerts" ranking.

Parentheses represents Betting Pick, which is the pick (based on my predicted score) against the spread. All spreads are current of the time I made these picks, not the current moment. However, using the score, you can calculate my pick against any spread at any time.

Bold teams are the predicted winner of the game, not including the spread.

All game times reflect Eastern Time Zone times.
