RICE + 2 

12/29 SAT 11:45 am et 

After watching how stinky Fresno state's offense really is in their SMU  bowl game on  Xmas Eve .

This  bulldog's  team put up 49 on Air Force in the last game of the season beating them 49-17.

We saw how SMU dominated Fresno st on both sides of the ball . 

Rice beat SMU 36-14 and SMU has some players on defense that will play at the next level .

I watched  the Rice at Tulsa  game i was impressed with the Owl's offensive talent , QB play and play design , they lost that game 28-24  but to me they looked like the better team that day .

 I had the impression of Rice that they were a horrible defensive team , i changed my mind after watching them at Tulsa . they are capable of making stops .

Rice went on to win the next 4 games scoring 44, 49, 36, 33

Rice is one of the youngest teams in college football maybe that accounts for their slow start . winners of their last 4 games , also 3 of their loses were by 4 points or fewer . 

Rice is  excited to be in this bowl  National TV , last bowl appearance  was 2008 when they beat Western Michigan 38-14

 The venue is 4 hours from  the Rice campus so Owl's should be familiar and  focused here .  

Like this bet  a lot 

Happy Holidays

Best bet tomorrow in my opinion. Waiting for the line to hit 3.

That may work to your disadvantage if AF is going for it on 4th and 1 or 2 instead of attempting a fg.

AF will be very disciplined (as usual), and the were dragging at the end of the year simply because they are always under sized and take some abuse.

The Owls havent seen the option that will come their way, so comparing what SMU did to Fresno and what Rice did to SMU is leading you down a dark path. A+B doesnt always = C

The Over 61 is the best play on the board tomorrow.

3 of those 4 were on the road, and like I said, AF was worn down. Theyve had well over a month to rest/heal, and they should have very fresh legs....

Rice rush defense is 91st in the nation while AF is 2nd running the ball, so you know they are gonna get their yards. Rice has wins over Kansas, Tulane, So Miss, Tex San Ant, SMu and Utep...not exactly a resume builder. They gave up at least 24 points in 8 out of 12 games and 35+ 5 times.

Not trying to trow you off your pick bro, just talkin some football.
