Widow’s 2008 Independence Bowl Picks

It was yet another one of the bowl picks offered by the Black Widow that ended with clients cashing their winning tickets.  You know that there are just a few people in the world as gifted at beating the bowl game odds as the Widow is, just take a look at why he was on La Tech last night:

5* Wiseguy Independence Bowl BLOOD BATH on Louisiana Tech PK

This game will be an absolute BLOOD BATH from start to finish in LA Tech’s favor.  This team has gone under the radar during the second-half of the season as they’ve played some of the best football in the country.  LA Tech has won 4 of their last 5 games overall, finding their offense.  The Bulldogs have put up 31 points or more in 4 of those 5 games, and their lone loss was a 31-35 setback against Nevada in their season finale.  They let the Wolf Pack come back and win in that game when it looked like they had it under control.  So now LA Tech will be determined to finish their season on a winning note, and not let that one loss to Nevada in a game they should have won linger in the offseason.  Northern Illinois has simply coasted to the finish line.  The Huskies lost 3 of their last 4 games, losing to Navy at home 16-0 to finish off the regular season.  Northern Illinois doesn’t have the offense to keep up with LA Tech Sunday.  They put up a mere 191 yards of total offense against the Midshpmen in that shutout loss.  The Huskies are 1-8 ATS (-7.8 Units) after scoring 14 points or less last game over the last 3 seasons.  Northern Illinois relies too much on the run to be able to beat the Bulldogs Sunday.  The Huskies run 38 times per game while throwing only 22 times on average.  LA Tech has one of the best run defenses in the land, giving up a mere 100 rushing yards per game and 3.0 yards per rush.  Nevada came in as the nation’s best rushing offense, and the Bulldogs held the Wolf Pack to just 103 yards on 42 attempts in their finale!  They allowed 37 yards on 24 carries to New Mexico State, 30 yards on 28 carries to San Jose State, and 63 yards on 23 carries to Fresno State.  Now that’s domination up front, and the front 7 by the Bulldogs are the reason why LA Tech wins this one in a BLOOD BATH.  Plus, this is a HOME GAME FOR LA TECH played in Shreveport, LA.  Northern Illinois will not travel well, and you’ll see that 80% of the fans will be cheering for the Bulldogs to finish off a great season.  Take LA Tech and lay the points.
