Early ATS College Football Picks for this Week’s Bowls
Marmot Boca Raton Bowl: #24 Temple vs. ToledoWhen: Tuesday, December 22 at 7 pm ET, ESPNNCAAF Odds: Temple (-2.5)
Analysis: Temple may have lost three of its last six games, but this is a team that was one of the best surprises in the nation after starting the season on a 7-0 run. Like the Owls, Toledo also started the season 7-0, but finished shakily by losing two of its last four games for a 9-2 finish. That said, these are two of the better teams from the Group 5 conferences, guaranteeing an entertaining duel. But when all is said and done, Temple’s balanced squad should be able to come out on top, taking the win and the cheap points.Pick: Temple (-2.5)
