One of the most intriguing matchups during the bowl season will feature one of the nation’s best rushing attacks in Air Force against the best passing offense in football in Washington State. Air Force won 10 games this season, and finished the year with seven straight wins. Look for the Falcons to have a ton of success on the ground against a suspect Cougars defense.
Bet 2: Ohio State (+105) vs. Clemson

When: Saturday, Dec. 28 at 8 p.m. ET
Our second bet features the No. 2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes against the defending champion Clemson Tigers. Ohio State is one of the most balanced teams in the country with stars on both sides of the ball. While both teams are pretty equal, there is more value on the Ohio State moneyline. It’s a strong play at plus-money.
Bet 3: Auburn (-278) vs. Minnesota

When: Wednesday, Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. ET
Auburn has proven to be one of the best teams in the country, defeating Alabama and Oregon during the 2019 season. Three combined losses to LSU, Florida and Georgia by 21 points have knocked the Tigers down to No. 12 in the College Football rankings. They are touchdown favorites over Minnesota and expect them to win fairly easily over the Golden Gophers.
Bet 4: Oregon (+115) vs. Wisconsin

When: Wednesday, Jan. 1 at 5 p.m. ET
The Rose Bowl will feature one of the best matchups this bowl season as the No. 6 ranked Oregon Ducks will face the No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers. While Wisconsin is favored, Oregon appears to be the better team on paper with a top-ranked defense and a potential top-10 pick at quarterback. Considering the value here, grab the Oregon moneyline for the outright win over Wisconsin.
Bet 5: Georgia (-7.5, +115) vs. Baylor

When: Wednesday, Jan. 1 at 8:45 p.m. ET
Baylor has been one of the biggest surprises of the college football season, but it will be facing a significantly more talented Georgia team in the Sugar Bowl. Georgia has covered the spread in four of its last six games and expect the ‘Dogs to do the same in this contest. They just have too much team speed, and that could overwhelm Baylor.
Total Parlay Payout: +2310
Overall, this is a pretty easy bet to back considering there are no major upsets needed in order for it to hit. At better than 23-1 odds, this is a bet that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout bowl season.
