Martin’s 2008 Champs Sports Bowl Picks

Just another winner for the clients of John Martin on the 2008 Champs Sports Bowl when one of his bowl picks was on the Seminoles.  This game was never in doubt as he smoked the bowl game odds yet again.


I am taking Florida State -5.5 and the UNDER 52.5 in the Champs Sports Bowl as my NCAAF Parlay of the Year Saturday!  I like Florida State’s defense to shut down Wisconsin and hold the Badgers to 14 points or less.  I see Florida State scoring between 21 and 28 points in this one to pick up the low-scoring blowout victory.  FSU’s speed on defense will really stymie this Wisconsin offense.  The Badgers rely solely on running the football, and Florida State has the studs up front to stop the run.  Against the 3 best defenses the Badgers have faced this season, Wisconsin managed just 7 points against Penn State, 16 points against Iowa and 17 points against Ohio State.  The Badgers have not played a game since the 22nd of November, so they will come out sluggish having not played in over a month.  With Florida State having the home-field advantage Saturday, I love their chances of covering this spread in a game played down in Orlando, Florida.  The Seminoles are 3-1 on the road this season, winning by 10.5 points/game.  Their last road game was a 37-3 triumph over Maryland.  Expect a similar result Saturday.  My prediction is a 27-14 Seminoles’ victory.  Wisconsin is 0-8 ATS versus good defensive teams – allowing <=310 yards/game over the last 2 seasons. The Seminoles allow just 292 yards of total offense/game.  FSU is 26-13 UNDER in their last 39 road non-conference games.  Cash in with Florida State -5.5 and the UNDER 52.5 points as my NCAAF Parlay of the Year.
