College Football Bowl Picks and Bets for December 18
Famous Toastery Bowl: Old Dominion vs. WKU
2:30 pm on ESPN
Old Dominion and Western Kentucky to stay UNDER the 55.5-point total
This line has moved a lot since it was released, and Old Dominion has gone from 4.5-point underdogs to the betting favorite. The college bowl matchup will be decided between the Western Kentucky offense and the Old Dominion defense, with both teams evenly matched middle-of-the-pack squads. Neither team jumps off the page on offense, and both will struggle to put points on the board.
In the past four matchups for each team, only two games were played where the over/under line was north of 55. In both of those matchups, the final totals didn’t even reach 50. This game should grind with both teams playing it safe. For the college bowl matchup, don’t expect this one to shoot out and take the under.
