CFB Bowl Games Parlay Picks for Saturday, December 30

As we inch closer to the start of a new year the college football bowl games ramp up in prestige and intensity. There are just four games on the slate for Saturday, December 30, but intrigue surrounds all of them so paying attention to the goings-on is vitally important when making a college football parlay wager and sports betting with bitcoin. Even after the start of bowl season news will surface regarding players. After getting reamed by the College Football Playoff committee the Florida State Seminoles will face Georgia in the Orange Bowl with freshman QB Brock Glenn at the helm after Tate Rodemaker entered the transfer portal. I doubt that move takes place if the Noles are in the CFP so they get screwed twice by the committee without so much as a jar of Vaseline.

I was further away from a winner last week than I was on the first Saturday of bowl season so I’m trending in the wrong direction. That just shows the volatility of these games with matchups we rarely see and teams dealing with roster situations. I felt confident that points would be scored in the Potato Bowl and I was right. Georgia State and Utah State combined for 35 first quarter points getting them more than halfway to the total of 59.5. The pace slowed after that but the teams got me a winner on the OVER in GSU’s 45-22 victory. Utah rolled over in its 14-7 Las Vegas Bowl loss to Northwestern getting soundly beaten by a team that wanted it more. Unfortunately I backed the Utes at -6.5. Another upset saw Duke knock off Troy 17-10 handing me another loss.

We’ll call it the Snub Bowl but everyone else will refer to it as the Orange Bowl. Two teams that felt they should be competing for a national championship and both with good reason to feel that way will instead travel to Miami. You probably got an idea of my feelings about Florida State by reading the intro. The Noles got royally screwed as an undefeated Power 5 conference champion being left out of the tournament. An injury to the starting QB was a sorry reason to exclude them and more nonsense from the committee. That’s like aborting a child because it could become a serial killer. And Georgia did everything right dominating the regular season without losing a game, so both are less than excited to settle for this matchup.

With Jordan Travis injured and Tate Rodemaker in the portal the Noles turn to Brock Glenn to run the offense. Glenn started the ACC Championship throwing for 55 yards in FSU’s 16-6 victory. He had a few other mop up stints but nothing like what he’s about to face on Saturday. Both teams were stellar defensively all season and the portal did little to make those groups less effective. And as a result this game will finish UNDER the total of 44.5.

The SEC-Big Ten showdown pits maybe the third best team in each league against each other in a contrast of styles. Penn State’s only losses were to Michigan and Ohio State while Ole Miss was upended by Alabama and Georgia. The Nittany Lions boast one of the stingiest defenses in the country and can pound the ball on the ground. The ball control attack will frustrate Ole Miss, which likes the tempo game, leading to costly Rebels mistakes. I like Penn State’s defense to be a little better in this matchup allowing the Lions to cover the 4-point line in what should be one of the best games of the bowl season.

Another SEC-Big Ten matchup has Auburn taking on Maryland in the Music City Bowl. The Terps would likely be favored had Taulia Tagovailoa not opted out, or at least the spread would be much smaller. Instead the offense takes a blow with seldom-used Billy Edwards likely starting. He hasn’t played much but Edwards is a capable dual-threat who protects the ball better than Tagovailoa. And that should allow the offense to have some shots against the Tigers D. And I still can’t get over Auburn losing to New Mexico State.
