Daily Bowl Picks: Saturday's Games

At the time of drafting our picks from Friday don't look so good. At this point, it looks like Major Applewhite the coach is just as good in a bowl game as Major Applewhite the player.

Back on the horse for Saturday. First up, the Bowl between East Carolina and South Florida (-4.5). South Florida beat West Virginia this year, and they're a team that is on the upstart and will get up for a bowl game. I don't know much about ECU, but the win over WVU tells me South Florida is the pick. Also like the over 43.5 for the total play here.

The New Mexico Bowl pitts New Mexico (-3) in a home game against San Jose State. SJ State is 8-3 ATS this year so they're the pick. They played Boise State tough this year, and that's good enough for us. Also play on the under 49.

The final battle of the juggernauts is the Armed Forces Bowl, Utah (-1) vs Tulsa. Over/under is 49. Tulsa has a strong defense but you have to be concerned with level of play with their schedule. I like Utah in this one, as its essentially a pick'em with a 1 point line. Utah beat a good TCU team. Game goes under as well.
Good luck all.
