College Bowl Pick’em

The 2018-19 bowl lineup is out with 39 games to watch over the next few weeks leading to the National Championship game in Santa Clara, California on Monday January 7. Alabama is the favorite to win it all as the Crimson Tide face Oklahoma in one of two college football playoff games on December 29.

During the holiday season, bettors have the opportunity to earn extra cash with "College Bowl Pick ‘em" contests where all you have to do is pick the winner, which isn’t as easy as it looks.

The most popular contest has you picking the winner of all 39 Bowl games and ranking them with confidence, starting with 39 as the most confident pick and counting all the way down to 1 as least confident.

The two picks in this contest are the double-digit favorites in the playoff games. Clemson faces Notre Dame as 11-point favorites in the Cotton Bowl although both teams are undefeated. Since edging Syracuse by four points earlier this season, the Tigers have cruised through their schedule by winning the last eight games by at least 20 points.

Defending national champion Alabama needed to rally past Georgia to capture the SEC championship, but the Crimson Tide are still the team to beat. ‘Bama squares off with Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, as the Sooners grabbed the Big 12 title but are being criticized due to their lack of defense.

Outside of the two playoff games, the next most confident pick on the board is actually a short underdog. Syracuse is coming off a resurgent season in which it finished at 9-3, with two of the losses coming to Clemson and Notre Dame. The Orange face West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl, but the Mountaineers will be without quarterback Will Grier, who is setting his sights on preparing for the NFL. WVU finished the season with back-to-back losses, while giving up 104 points to Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.

Below are all 39 bowls ranked from 39-1. Happy Bowl Season!
