Saturday, December 21 is a huge day for college football, with six bowls scheduled for stadiums across the United States. BetAmerica's James Scully has surveyed the landscape and has previews and picks for the New Mexico Bowl, which features Central Michigan and San Diego State, and the Boca Raton Bowl, which will pit Florida Atlantic against SMU.
Last week we had another pick win straight up! Illinois pulled off the upset of the season as a 31-point underdog with a victory over Wisconsin. We also had another 4-1 week, and the underdogs are rolling. Here's to another week of underdogs hitting hard with Week 9 spread busters.
Underdogs had a tough time in Week 3, as only one FBS team covered a +20 or more spread. Here's the real shocker—it was against Alabama. Rest assured, the dogs are back and are ready to bite!
In the early weeks many overrated and underrated teams show up in lopsided spreads, and in Week 2 you'll get some overreaction spreads based on how teams looked in Week 1. Here are our favorite big underdogs of Week 2.
