    This is the most exciting time in college football for me as each year 40+ Bowl games are played from December to January and there is always value to be seen in a lot of games!

    I will be posting my selections for each College Bowl game which will include:
    a) Straight Up Selection (pick a team without point spread)
    b) ATS/Against The Spread Selection (picking a team to cover/beat the point spread)
    c) Total Selection (picking the total to go Over or Under for the combined score of the game)
    d) Best Bet Selections (selections that I feel have a high % of winning)
    e) Commentary for each game (I will probably stick between 1-3 sentences and more if needed)

    Good luck to all playing! Games start Friday at 12pm EST!

    I like the FCS playoffs, too. Do you ever watch those?

    In all honesty, I don't actually watch FCS

    I think there playoffs usually happen when the FBS Bowls are going on

    They've already completed the quarter finals. There's a lot of the same teams each year, so rivalries build up.

    Ok you would know better than me for that

    Do you ever bet on FBS/FCS before or follow them closely?

    I follow them somewhat. I seldom bet football. I pretty much only bet horses. And since Texas banned internet wagering, I don't even bet horses all that much.

    That is weird that they would ban internet wagering

    When the sports betting and online wagering business (hopefully) skyrockets Texas will look foolish for that lol

    The tracks endorsed the legislation, especially Lone Star. Lone Star also bought Trinity Meadows so they could shut it down. Lone Star has never had much respect for the handicappers who should be the mainstream of their business. But they sell a lot of beer and food and have live bands.

    Also, here's a tidbit.

    Since 1980, underdogs have won 23% of regular season games but 36% of bowl games.

    Kentucky which probably was one of the first states to legalize online horse wagering, is still just Talking about sports betting and we're literally surrounded by states with legal sports betting. They estimate that the state may be losing like 40-50 million a year in sports betting revenue to the surrounding states and to illegal sports betting. That's my state:

    36th in education
    44th in health care
    47th in poverty rate

    but....

    9th in deaths by heart disease
    1st in deaths by cancer
    5th in deaths by diabetes

    Sorry, back to horsey stuff now.

    It could be worse. I cannot wager on anything online. I'm in Texas.

    If the track has mBet app it's super easy to fake your location, possibly works with others :wink:

    Oh I was thinking horses, forgot this was a football thread. The sports apps are much better than horses at blocking spoofing so likely no help.
