Behind Enemy Lines on New Year's Day

Yo, this is Nicky and I’ve been paying close attention to the bowl games this season and I gotta’ tell ya some of them would be pretty frustrating if you had money on the line and you’re watching wide outs and tight ends drop balls that could be moving the sticks, it makes you want to pack it in and wait for the NFL playoffs but I see some good value on the board in the final week of bowl season so let’s get to it. In the Rose Bowl I like Stanford Cardinal (-6.5 buy the hook) to beat the Spartans of Michigan St. These teams are so evenly matched and don’t make many mistakes so the little things will play a big roll. State losing arguably their best player defensively and being 26 years removed from the grand ‘daddy’ if they come out cold they may not get a chance to catch up the Cardinal as Stanford should be able to control the clock and move the ball with a very balanced attack. They’re fundamentally sound, well coached, don’t make mistakes, and by affiliation are a smart team, and based on what we’ve seen thus far that’s what wins ballgames. That’s the New Year’s Day Chowda’ I’m Nicky, we’ll be back tomorrow with one more bowl pick and the NFL Wildcard weekend.
