12/24 VIP Pick

2-1 with a JACKHAMMER slammer hitting is a good start to the week. If you look at the Packers write up closer you can tell I originally typed it up as Packers moneyline at +185 but I changed it to the teaser at the last minute because I was nervous for UCF to cover 15 in the rain. It worked out for us but it could have been better! The Blues came through for us late too. Nuggets were outplayed in the 2nd & 3rd and were only able to win by 2. We will take it though! Small slate tonight with no NHL or NBA but there is one bowl game so let’s take a look at it. I hope you all enjoy your Christmas Eve with friends and family 🎄 

CFB:

BYU / Hawaii  Under (65) - Picking a winner in this one seems like a legit coin flip even though BYU has not lost to Hawaii since 2001. I like our odds going with the under in this one better than picking a winner. 11 of 12 games have gone under 65 for BYU and they are coming off of a game with 16 total points. Hawaii has played in higher scoring games all season but 3 of their last 4 have gone under 65 with one game having a total of 25. Both of those games were against the same opponent San Diego State. The averages for both of these teams point to the under as well with the offenses averaging 33.6 and 28.0 and the defenses allowing 31.7 and 24.4. The Hawaii offense is led by QB Cole McDonald who has 4 300 yard games and 2 400 yard games. I’m expecting BYU to drop back into coverage and force Hawaii to run the ball which is good for the over. Hawaii also is one of the worst teams in College Football when it comes to securing the ball, they average 2 turnovers per game. Look for them to turn it over in plus territory tonight. Speaking of turnovers, BYU turned it over 3 times in their last game. They also missed 2 field goals. BYU has some key injuries on offense so that could slow them down as well. 35-28 and we would still go under 65, let’s roll with the under tonight. Plus - 70% of the public are on the over.
