The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $3,500 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It enters bowl season a sizzling 55-35 on all top-rated picks, returning over $500. Anybody who has followed it is way up.
Top 2020-21 college football bowl predictions
One of the top college football bowl picks the model is recommending: No. 18 Miami (+2) stays within the spread when it meets up with No. 21 Oklahoma State on Dec. 29 in the 2020 Cheez-it Bowl in Orlando. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. ET at Camping World Stadium. The Hurricanes are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games as underdogs. SportsLine’s model projects that Miami has a great chance of winning the game straight up.
The Hurricanes piled up over 432 yards of total offense per game, good for seventh in the ACC. The simulations show quarterback D’Eriq King throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns as Miami picks up the cover almost 70 percent of the time. The over (58.5) also hits in almost 60 percent of simulations.
Another one of the top college football predictions from the model: Army (+7) stays within the spread when it takes on West Virginia in the 2020 Liberty Bowl at 4 p.m. ET on Dec. 31. The Black Knights were originally left without a postseason matchup, but were then slotted into this Memphis-based bowl when Tennessee dropped out due COVID-19 issues. It leads to a tough matchup for the Mountaineers.
Army gave up just 14 points per game this year, while averaging 281.3 yards per game on the ground. WVU will be scrambling to put together a plan to stop Army’s option attack on relatively short notice. The model is calling for a low-scoring game that goes under the total (41.5) almost 70 percent of the time as Army stays within the spread in well over 70 percent of simulations.
How to make 2020-21 college football bowl picks
The model has also made the call on who wins and covers in every bowl game and the College Football Playoff matchups, and it is calling for multiple shocking upsets. You can only get every pick for every game at SportsLine.
