So we are back from a holiday break to try and pay for all the crap our wives bought last week. I have two games picked for tonight. I will not be picking the Washington/Nebraska game because FUCK YOU PAC 10! Although I did break my winless streak by riding Oregon over Oregon State straight up, I am not going back to that well again this year, with the possible exception of the National Championship game.
First up is K State against Syracuse in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. Both teams started the year strong and thought that big things would be in store for them, but it was not to be. Betting action has been coming in on the Orange as they are being thought of as a home team here. The game is currently a pickem. But lets face reality here, K State put up a similar record in a much stronger conference this year. I like K State to win this one by at least a field goal. The supposed home field advantage is negated because Syracuse plays their home games indoors. Even then, they were 2-4 at home and 5-1 on the road. This is mostly a bet against the Big East, so take K State to win it.
In the second pick of the day, we have another pickem between Tennessee and North Carolina. Once again we are going to bet on the conference. Here at bourbonmeyer.com we always like SEC games, especially against the lowly ACC. And if that isnt enough, the game is basically a home game for Tennessee as it will be played in Nashville. I also like the under 50.5 for this one. The Music City Bowl will be more of a defensive showdown than people expect. Look for Tennessee to win this one with defense by the score of 20-10.
