Air Force Falcons vs. California Golden Bears (Game in Fort Worth, Texas)
This is a game in which the points should flow freely. Air Force and California both have very creative offensive coaches, Troy Calhoun for the Falcons and Sonny Dykes for the Bears. These guys are very good at attacking defenses from many angles. In the case of Air Force, the Falcons depend on the ability to use multiple looks and formations, making it hard for defenses, and especially the linebackers and safeties, to commit to a specific decision before the snap on whether to defend the run or the pass. The Falcons are really good at getting opposing defenses off balance. California has also had problems on defense, specifically in the form of tackling. The Golden Bears are weak in areas where Air Force can and should exploit them. As for the other matchup, California has a quarterback in Jared Goff who started the season making a quick first read and getting the ball to his hot receiver before the defense could react. Defenses adjusted to him by taking away that first read and doing a lot more to disguise coverages. Goff’s level of play tailed off in the second half of the season, but this is a player with an NFL future as long as he continues to develop and learn the right lessons. With a month off for this bowl game, Goff should be a lot better at picking the right receiver and identifying the matchup he needs to throw to down the field. This feels like a shootout. Go with the over.

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. LSU Tigers (Game in Houston)
The key point to make here is that Texas Tech’s defense has given up over 60 points multiple times and over 50 points in several other instances this season. There’s just no aspect of defense in which this team is strong on defense. The Red Raiders are extremely weak and vulnerable to just about every form of attack. LSU’s offense struggled over the course of the season, but it should be able to get healthy against Texas Tech’s defense. The Red Raiders, though, have an offense which is always hard to stop. This game should get into the 30s for both teams, and LSU can get into the mid-40s. Take the over with your college football picks.

Baylor Bears vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (Game in Orlando)
This is a game in which the Bears will have multiple key offensive players out of commission: receiver Corey Coleman, running back Shock Linwood, and quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Backup quarterback Chris Johnson can do well, but Baylor has a smaller margin for error. The Bears’ defense, knowing it has to play well, will probably limit North Carolina’s offense to the point that it can keep this game under the total. Go under the college football odds.
