There are three Bowl games today and I think they’re pretty good but the sites don’t think anyone wants to sit around after Christmas and play College Football DFS.  Lame Sites!  So we have some very weak contests today.  But still money to be made.

Here’s a quick cheat sheet on the slate


Mark Rypien’s son, Brett Rypien is playing his final game as a senior and is coming off a down performance in their conference championship game.  Boise State loves to air it out with Rypien and his stable of good receivers but has a tough match-up against an aggressive Boston College defense.  None the less, I like Rypien to put up the most passing yards today and he is one of my two quarterbacks.

The other QB spot is from the Georgia Tech triple option, Taquon Marshall and Tobias Oliver likely will be the two who produce the most from Ga Tech against a poor Minnesota rush defense.  I wouldn’t object to using both either.

Running Backs

Alex Mattison for Boise State is the best of the studs to pay up for today.  With AJ Dillon nursing an ankle injury he could be the guy to fade, but RB is very thin on this three gamer.  While, Georgia Tech should run the ball a ton, lets not overlook Minnesota’s best offensive weapon in Mohamed Ibrahim who will be featured the most for the Gophers today in my mind.

Quick Note on AJ Dillon … He tweeted that he’s feeling good and is good to go for the game today.


Wide Receivers

I can’t overlook the stable that Boise State (they’re the Broncos, …. get it?) has with two seniors Sean Mondster and AJ Richardson likely doing the heavy lifting today.   The Golden Gophers do have a pair of solid receivers in Tyler Johnson (preferred) and Rashod Bateman, who would be options if you gamestack that game.



QB:   Rypien, Marshall, Oliver

RB:  Mattison, Ibrahim, Dillon, Mason (Value), Bryce Williams (Value)

WR:  Modster, Richardson, Reagor, Tyler Johnson, Rashod Bateman, Duncan (Value), Sweeney (Value)


BETS: Georgia Tech -5.5, Boise State -2.5, Boise State/Boston College OVER 53.5
