Cheez-It Bowl in Phoenix

48-35 on College Football this season up 27.15 units

5-5 on Bowls down 2.22 units 

TCU -1 at +113 for 4 units. This game features the lowest over/under of the bowl season (40 points). In a defensive battle, I’ll take the team that I think has the better defense in TCU. The Horned Frogs are 27th nationally on defense. Cal’s defense is in the top 20 nationally, but I give the nod to TCU because of scheduling. Cal’s first time in a bowl since Jared Goff was the QB. Jalen Reagor has been great at wideout this season for TCU, especially considering he has played with 3 different QBs. I can’t bet on a Cal team that barely beat UNC and lost to UCLA by 30. TCU is a disciplined solid team that will frustrate Cal.
