Look, take our word for it. There is a lot that goes into a bowl handicap. In the interest of lead time, we worked hard to get our bowl previews out early in the process. Players will declare for the NFL Draft. Coaches and coordinators will be getting hired to new locations. Players will get suspended. Lines will move. It is a very fluid time of year, but we wanted to get our previews out to you in a timely manner.

I’ll update this as previews continue to get posted, but the games from December 20 through December 28, including the CFP semifinals, are posted at present and more are coming very shortly.

Watch the line movements. They can tell us a lot. There are some shenanigans at this time of the year, as sharp bettors will massage these lines with some lower-limit bets and then come back later in the process with some bigger bets at better numbers. Power ratings and statistical deep dives are a good idea, but you never want to forget about the mindset of a team going into a bowl game. Motivation can be a great equalizer at this time of the year because some teams want to be there and others are less enthused about where they are.

Keep it right here at BangTheBook.com, where we’ll have a lot of really good bowl content, including these previews and a whole lot of other opinions and takes to help you bang the books this bowl season.

Good luck and enjoy the games!
