We have four hump-day bowl games to get you through the week and I’ve got the picks to get us cashing tickets. I’m 9-3 ATS in my last twelve picks so let’s end the year on a high note!

2015-16 NCAAF Record: 41-34-2, +3.60 Units 

Kansas State vs Texas A&M

Along with Texas A&M’s defense over the last eight games of their season, their wagering value went out the window as well, ending on a 0-8 ATS losing streak. They get an old Big 12 team indoors at Houston’s NRG Stadium, and the conditions should be right for the offenses to shine.

8 of the last 9 games between these two teams have finished over the posted total, with the last game in 2011 going over triple digits. We have two experienced dual-threat quarterbacks with 44 touchdowns between them as well. Given all of the time off to game plan, each of the offensive units should be able to put up some points. Even Kansas State’s run-heavy offense has put up 30 points in five games straight coming into this matchup.

Pittsburgh vs Northwestern

Pittsburgh’s offense has been hot this year, so hot that their offensive coordinator got sniped by LSU for the same position in the SEC. The team total listed for them for Pitt in this game looks to land at around 34.5 points on game day. Given the same line, Pitt would have exceeded this number in 10 out of 12 tries on the year.

Pitt’s defense should match up well against Northwestern’s rushing attack, making a play on the game total riskier than I would like. However, the weather shouldn’t be an external factor to slow down Pitt here. Don’t have a line for team totals? Then get another betting account that does and find that sportsbook on our review page. For this game, I’ll be finding that line over at 5Dimes.

Indiana vs Utah

The betting line for this game has dropped from Utah -8 to -5.5, as bettors must think that Indiana’s head coaching change is a positive for the program. What I see is an Indiana team that hasn’t beat anyone this year, who will be facing a Utah team ready to get the taste of the poor end of their regular season out of their mouth.

Utah starts fast on offense, averaging 16.2 points per game by halftime on the road. Indiana is sluggish, averaging just 9 points per game by halftime – while giving up 14.5. Bottom line, on the season Utah has an average of 4.6-point lead at half and Indiana a 4.5-point deficit. Look for Utah to go into halftime with the lead here.
