College Football Bowls 2022 And Top 25 Picks

The biggest bowl games of the 2022 season feature eight games between Top 25 teams. It starts Dec. 29 and runs through Jan. 2, 2023 and includes the two national semifinal games. You can review my update with college bowl picks, analysis and additional information you can bet on in my coverage for Off Shore Gaming Association.

We chipped in Top 25 matchup picks during the season with winning results going 11-7 ATS on side/spread selections. The Conference Championship games included Opinions and Leans (no picks) and were slightly profitable. Last year’s New Year’s Six bowl Picks, Opinions and Leans went a combined 6-2 ATS.

Be sure to check out my update on betting strategies and tips on betting the bowls. I also provide a betting breakdown of the two national semifinal games for Forbes.
