BetOnline $50,000 College Football Bowl Pick ‘Em Contest

  • BetOnline is hosting a $50,000 college football bowl season handicapping tournament.
  • The buy-in is just $20 and it runs from December 28 to January 10.

LAS VEGASBetOnline’s $50,000 College Bowl Pick ‘Em Contest is one of the best contests to enter for those looking to get some final action on the college football season.

The Rules Of The Tournament

First things first, those interested in getting involved in the tournament can have up to two entries, the first costing $20 and the second costing just $10. Once entered, those online gambling fans will need to pick the moneyline winners of every bowl starting on December 28 and ending on January 10, the national championship.

Players will earn points for each correct pick and naturally, the players with the most points will be the ones to see a cash reward at the conclusion of the contest.

The Prize Pool

While it is a BetOnline $50,000 contest, the winner doesn’t get the entire purse. The top point-earner will get $10,000 with the top 150 players getting paid out a part of the $50,000 pie.

It should be noted the rules claim that there is no tie-breaker and players who end with the same amount of points will split the prize evenly.

Best Picks To Make

In order to beat the field, those betting on college football will need to pick some underdogs to gain an advantage over most players. Anybody looking for some help can tail some of the following underdog picks during bowl season.

SMU vs Virginia Moneyline Odds

  • Virginia Cavaliers -130
  • SMU Mustangs +110

The total for the game is set at 71.0 points as it’s an expected shootout. Tanner Mordecai, SMU’s quarterback, had one of the best seasons in college football and if it comes down to a final drive, he’s on the shortlist for players to be most confident in.

Oregon vs Oklahoma Moneyline Odds

  • Oregon Ducks +170
  • Oklahoma Sooners -200

Both teams will be without much of their coaching staff as Lincoln Riley and Mario Cristobal took different jobs which leaves this game extremely muddy in terms of an outcome. Multiple Sooners have announced their intent to transfer already, leaving them even more shorthanded than they were already.

Wake Forest vs Texas A&M Moneyline Odds

  • Texas A&M Aggies -210
  • Wake Forest Demon Deacons +175

The Aggies' starting quarterback, Zach Calzada, has entered the transfer portal, leaving them to find a new option at QB for their bowl game. That team will be facing the Wake Forest offense who scored the fifth-most points per game with 41.2. Without their quarterback, it’s tough to see Texas A&M keeping up.
