man holding football helmet and ball above headCollege football betting season has reached the most exciting time and the most exciting games of the season. Laying money on the upcoming bowl games could result in serious cash if you lay your money in smart plays. We have been checking the lines and previewing the bowl games we will now present you with our picks for most likely upsets. We have examined a lot of these games and we have selected our top picks for likely upsets.

The first game we would like to highlight is Georgia versus Louisville at the Belk Bowl. Currently the line holds the Georgia Bulldogs as favorites with -7 line. They are a great team in offense but they will face a proficient defense in Louisville. The Cardinals have the defensive weaponry and the know how to beat the Bulldogs. Their defensive coordinator was at Georgia last season, so you could say he knows his rivals well. Louisville can capitalize, it will be tough, but the college football betting upset alert is ringing on this one.

The second upset alert is ringing at the Birmingham Bowl when the favorites Florida Gators (-7.5) face East Carolina. The main reason for the upset to be a possibility lies mainly within the Gators internal issues. After former head coach Will Muschamp resigned, the Gators have shown a less that stellar performance and they are not showing any signs of having a dramatic makeover. East Carolina has enough firepower on offense to beat the favorites.

Finally, we have to talk about the Rose Bowl. The Oregon Ducks will play the Florida State Seminoles in a playoff game that will be a joy to watch. College football betting lines have the Ducks as favorites (-9) versus the undefeated #Zombienoles. The Ducks are arguably a better team than Florida State. But, there is one thing that people tend to forget about Florida State. They are the defending National Champs, the have a respectable 29-game winning streak, and they are absurdly effective. Even while playing “bad” they win. The Seminoles do not get the credit they deserve, and you could say that the playoff committee in not having them be No.1 dissed them and their flawless record. But like the Kermit the Frog Meme would say, “That’s none of my business.”
