Bowl season is upon us. Translation: It’s time to start betting on games that you ordinarily would never bet on unless you were in a substantial hole with your bookie. There’s nothing better than relaxing like a sloth on your living room couch while watching a bunch of 20-year old kids decide your economic fate. Good times.
I don’t live and breathe college football like I do the NFL. I spend most of my Saturday watching college games and getting berated by my wife for being glued to the TV, but I definitely have more of a soft spot in my heart for the pro game. With that being said, I still love to bet on college football and I feel as though I’m pretty good at it.
However, rather than providing only my opinion for this season’s Bowl games, I’ve rounded up a group of guys that love the game just as much as I do, if not more.
Andrew Webster is a football liveblogger for @theScoreApp and used to work as a Wheel Reporter for theScore Television Network in Canada. He is admittedly biased to everything Philadelphia (Phillies, Eagles, Villanova, steak sandwiches, and general douchebaggery), but he knows the college game inside and out. Webster used to be assigned to be our in-house handicapper for ScoreMobile’s college football picks before he decided to take his talents to the Bahamas.
Gino Bottero is also a football liveblogger for @theScoreApp and a personal friend of mine. Gino and I attended university together, and rather than focusing on getting an education, we spent the majority of our days trying to handicap the board. He’s the sharpest betting mind that I’ve ever come across. In his spare time, he enjoys eating penne alla vodka and calling fouls in friendly games of pickup basketball.
Ron Papa is an Information Technology (IT) extraordinaire. When Papa isn’t fixing broken computers and printers, he’s focused on identifying value on the board. We discuss our picks together on a week-to-week basis and I can personally attest to the fact that Papa wins more than he loses. If only he could say the same about his FIFA ’13 skills.
Together, we’ll provide you with our opinions for all of the Bowl games this season. We’ll pick all of the games, no matter if we like the game or not, but our explanations will provide you with our confidence in each selection. Hopefully we can all make some cash together.
