First Bowl Projections

NOW WE HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT – Ohio State defeated Northwestern on Saturday night, making the Buckeyes the first, and only at least until Thursday, bowl-eligible team this season.  That means that every Monday, we’ll have bowl projections from around the web, along with some commentary.   At this point in the season, there is so little agreement among the experts, that you can debate who will be going to any game.  We are starting out with three expert opinions, and we’ll add another in a few weeks, and more down the line.   Starting next week, you’ll see our commentary, and our crazy bowl prediction.

BLURRED LINES – I’m not a big gambler, but I do like to check the line of games to see who is favored and by how much.  And I’m amazed at how often the lines are accurate.  But when I was looking at the lines on games for week seven, there were several that caught my attention.  The first was a 2-3 TCU team being favored over Kansas by 25 points.  Others were Wisconsin being favored by 10.5 over Northwestern, Baylor having a 19-point spread on Kansas State and Iowa State being a 15-point dog to Texas Tech.   I’ll compare the actual outcome with next week’s bowl projection.

Next week we’ll have a little more about the background of the experts we are citing.

The Crazy Bowl Prediction – Coming every Monday starting next week!
