Duke +7.5 vs. Cincy.. 1st bowl game in forever- senior QB- Cincy HC looking to get out.. Devils outright?

WVU -4 vs Cuse.. Cuse really isn't good- WVU might destroy that secondary- but outside, maybe in snow?  Good for Geno?

NC State +6.5 vs. Vandy.. Vandy staying close to home- but I don't think NCSU is that bad- is Vandy 7 pts better than any decent team?

Forgot OU +5... Tons of seniors on OU's squad.. maybe some rust for A&M after such a big layoff?  hard to believe A&M actually wins this game

like duke.. also the game is in Charlotte so some home field

also thinking oklahoma but depends where their heads are at.. do they come out pissed and prove they should have been in a bcs bowl or slow and sluggish because they arent.. also get to play against a team that left their conference.. count me in +7 or more

OU D is weaker this year than any other time under Stoops, i think,

but they might be motivated to stop Manziel,

i would take A&M if forced

OU / A&M is a real interesting game to cap... i am pretty down on OU this year... but there are reasons to believe OU may be the right side in this game...

i don't have much opinion on the other games...

I like Duke & West Virginia.  Not sure about NC State/Vandy.  Need to look more.  At first glace it would be difficult to side with an ACC team against almost anyone.

Chokelahoma???  Really???  This is an A&M blow out.

I hate betting the bowls simply for the Oklahoma dilemma. Do they care or don't they? Think A&M will handle them either way but hate the apathy factor in some of these bowl games.
Like WV.

almost always best to break a game down from several angles....

MATCH-UP wise....it looks like the Sooners might be in trouble here.....as Aggies the tougher team with the better D......so > theirgonnakillem!!!!
  *but wait....the Aggs played a few spread/hurry-up teams....(La Tech and Ole Miss).....what happened?
    *to La Tech...gave up 57 points....37 FD.....283 rushing / 395 passing.....(LT ran 101 plays).......wow
   *to Ole Miss (79 plays)...24 FD...159 rushing / 305 passing........
    *Aggs had trouble dealing with the pace in both.....having a total of 8 TO's and 24 penalties

note > Ark ran 98 plays and had 515 yards.....

OU's D looked improved vs most teams....but check out what happened when they faced a hurry-up team like WV...OKie St ...or Baylor
OU D  allowed an AVERAGE of 304 rushing....(564 TO).....and 44 points
Sooner O averaged 580 TO....34 FD.....and 48 points

SITUATIONAL wise ....this one is very interesting....as you have a talented OU team with a buncha Srs playing their last game.....and should get a few guys back from injury......vs the media / fan darling Aggies with a young (probable) Heisman Trophy QB....fresh off a 2 week or so "you're the greatest ever" ..."how long before you turn pro?" (radio guys already discussing)......glory ride....................................

* I would lean Aggies...but the OVER (71) looks like easy money.....thinking is the Aggies will stop/slow down OU ....doesn't look like it does it?

Already bet Duke at 10'...will probably bet WV and / or OVER  ...............

agree with Bookie... A&M may look like a great bet... but the real gift in that game is the Over... simply no chance it stays below 80...

Why would Oklahoma be disappointed?  They ought to be thrilled.  A&M is a much better opponent than they would have gotten in a BCS bowl.

Hey Fever,

Was sorry to see you didn't post much this year. I usually like to follow your picks - which is concerning because I was thinking opposite on all four of your leans.

Good luck any way.

I keep saying this, and people laugh at me.  OK got the bowl they want, and the last thing the B12 needed was Texas in the Cotton getting blown out by A&M.
