You know it’s the holiday season when the college football bowl games roll around each year. This bowl season is going to be a little different than what we have seen before, though, as a couple of games have already been postponed. There are probably going to be more of those before all is said and done, especially if the pandemic worsens over the next few months or so. It would not be a surprise to see a few teams opt out and lessen the risk to their players and personnel. With that in mind, let’s jump right into action so you can plan ahead your bets against their NCAAF odds.
