- Wet, windy weather conditions are expected for today's First Responder Bowl (1:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) between Boston College and Boise State, sending the over/under plummeting throughout Christmas Day.
- Using The Action Network's historical betting data, we analyze how bettors can take advantage of college football games played in such poor conditions.
Christmas Day is for the kids … and the NBA. Most people are off work and spending time with family, and sports fans have a loaded basketball slate to distract them from annoying uncles and kids wired on stocking candy and battery overload.
The high-profile NBA schedule also affords plenty of betting opportunities, especially for the most casual of sports bettors.
But remember, just because professional hoops dominates the day, doesn’t mean there aren’t other sports available for betting.
In fact, while most bettors were distracted by presents and LeBron taking on the Warriors, the over/under for Wednesday’s First Responder Bowl between Boston College and Boise State took a nose dive yesterday, and the weather forecast is to blame.
