Chode’s College Bowl Game Picks: Weekend 1

Sports and Bets — December 19, 2014 at 2:15 pm by

After a perfect championship weekend I finished the college football regular season 23-15, and that ain’t bad, boys.  Now it’s Bowl season and here is where we make the real money. Here are my picks for the first Weekend of Bowl Madness.

Game 1- R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

Sat., December 20th    11 AM ESPN

Nevada vs. Louisiana -Lafayette

Line: Nevada -1

Chode’s Pick: LAFAYETTE

How do you not take the Ragin’ Cajuns here? At 8-5 the Cajuns are looking to with this bowl (located in New Orleans, mind you) for the 4th consecutive year in a row. The Cajuns have been here before and they have proven that they know how to win the New Orleans Bowl. The streak continues.

Game 2- Raycom Media Camellia Bowl  

Sat., December 20th

9:15 PM ESPN

South Alabama Vs. Bowling Green

Line: South Alabama -2.5

Chode’s Pick: South Alabama

The boys from South Alabama are from Alabama, and they know how to play football down there. Their 6-6 record may not be overly impressive, but South Alabama has played teams like Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Navy.  I’ll lay the points and watch them bowl over the green.
