Widow’s 2008 Insight Bowl Picks

6* Widow Wiseguy 2008 CFB TOTAL OF THE YEAR on Minnesota/Kansas O 59.5

This is our strongest Over/Under pick of the entire 2008 college football season, so do not be shy with your wagers!  Minnesota and Kansas will finish OVER the Total with ease Wednesday.  The Gophers are coming off their two worst defensive performances of the year.  Minnesota allowed 35 points to Wisconsin, and followed that putrid effort up with 55 points allowed to the Iowa Hawkeyes.  This was an Iowa team not known for their offense, yet they reeled off nearly 500 yards of total offense.  Kansas will put up over 40 points against the Gophers, after they posted 40 points on Missouri in their finale.  These are two teams that love to put the football in the air.  Minnesota throws 32 times per game for an average of 216 passing yards, while Kansas throws 39 times per game for an average of 302 passing yards.  With perfect weather down in Tempe, AZ for a shootout, this one is a no-brainer folks.  Kansas is scoring 35.0 points per game on the road and allowing 39.4 points per game in road games for an average of 74.4 points per contest.  The final score of this one exceeds 70 points as you count your chips by the end of the third quarter.  The OVER is 5-1 in Jayhawks last 6 games overall, 10-1-1 in Golden Gophers last 12 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0 points, 8-1 in Golden Gophers last 9 non-conference games, and 13-3 in Golden Gophers last 16 games following a ATS loss.  This is a combined 36-5 (88%) OVER System showing you that this is clearly the best Over/Under bet you can make all season.  Take the OVER 58.5 points.
