Army vs. SMU
Bowl season is upon us, it is time to figure out which teams to bet on in these games. We are all going to be gathering around our televisions to watch all of our favorite teams duel it out. Why should we not lay a little money on these games as well? One of the games that you might consider as a betting opportunity is the Army vs SMU game.
The current line on this game is 7.5 points in favor of SMU. The fact of the matter is that both of these teams are pretty weak in comparison to the other teams in bowl games. It is not likely that one team is going to break away that much in this game. It is much more likely that SMU will win this game by a small margin, say 3 or 4 points. While it does seem that the bookmakers have made the correct pick in this game, they have overestimated the margin of victory on this one. SMU will likely win the game, but 7.5 points seems like a bit of a long shot. Even if they are able to win by a touchdown, they will still not cover the spread. Make sure that you are betting on Army to beat the spread.
If you are not comfortable betting on a weak team, then you are going to want to make sure that you bet on the over/under line. Currently that line is sitting at 50 points, 25 points per team. With two teams that are as weak as these two, you are going to want to make sure that you bet the under on this part of the bet. You are going to find that you are more likely to be able to win this bet if you choose to bet on the under part of this one. Two weak teams are not likely to put up a total of 50 points. That is a nice way to double up your money on a bowl game that most people are not going to pay attention to on this day.
