Wayne Allyn Root has made money every bowl season for over 25 years!
I been handicapping bowl games remarkedly well for decades. Profitable each and every year with the proper money management, hitting the “key” games extra hard, and sticking to the fundamentals that I developed decades ago. I began to compile some trends and guidelines in a general nature of which I still incorporate as a check-list and bowl bettting guideline. Handicapping college bowl games is very different from handicapping regular season college games in so many ways. Bowl games themselves are different from other games. This is a huge platform for some of the bowl teams, as this is their biggest television audience of the entire year. These teams use a good showing to help with their recruiting efforts. The structure, the practices, the party atmosphere all play a vital role in these games. Too muchpartying equals a poor performance. That’s where my contacts and insider knowledge comes in. A professional must know who is trying…and who is spending too much time drinking
C) On the value-based “bounce back” premise, look for teams that were upset in their last regular season game to sometimes bounce back and have a strong bowl game and getting an added point or so from the oddsmakers. Teams that have something to prove will sometimes bring their “A game”…sometimes not. Only WAR knows for sure.
D) Seniors play a tremendous role for the underclassmen and tend to be motivated for bowl games. The last game of a college career will bring out the best in players, as they want to go out with a win. Experience is something you have to look at and when you combine that with motivation it is a solid combination.
E) Add fuel to teams that will be underdogs for the game where they think they should have been the favorite. Players do not like to be disrespected. This is a good thing to look at, as there is nothing that gets a team motivated more then when they do not get respect. Teams that have been reading in the press that they are the weaker of the teams are sometimes ready for the game and the coaches will let them know what the press is saying about them. Sometimes teams like this can come out on fire and look for something to prove. Other times they fall flat on their face, not ready to step up in class. Only WAR knows for sure.
F) Many teams are hand picked in
particular bowl games based solely on their fan base and in terms of how many
will travel to the game. This is the business of sports. It’s not about winning.
It’s about selling tickets and providing out of town revenue to the local
Motivation is probably the biggest factor in handicapping bowl games. If you can pick the teams that are more motivated for the game it will make picking winners easier.
Look for teams that ran the table (exception: team could have lost 1st or
2nd game of the season, then ran the table) up until the last game of the season
then lost their final game. This would usually be the rivalry game, or the
conference championship game. Bet against these teams in their bowl game. This angle is especially powerful if the loss cost the team a BCS game. It is even
more powerful if that loss cost the team a chance to play for the national
