  • Before placing your bowl game bets for Wednesday, you might want to know which bets sharps are making.
  • Sharps are bettors with long track records of consistent success.
  • Their favorite Wednesday plays include a bet on tonight's Cal-TCU point spread.

It’s been three days since the last college football bowl game. What the hell were we supposed to do with all that time? At least sneak a holiday in there or something, sheesh.

Anyway, bowl season is rolling once again, with three games to take you through the day on Wednesday. Of those three, two have seen significant one-sided action from sharp bettors.

The odd one out has been Georgia Tech-Minnesota. While the Quick Lane Bowl has seen its share of wiseguy activity, lines have moved so much that sharps are beginning to buy back on them, making it difficult to point to a clear sharp play.

Remember: Sharps bet numbers, not teams.

With that said, here are the two Wednesday plays that have yet to see any conflicting signals from sharp bettors.

First Responder Bowl: Boston College vs. Boise State

1:30 p.m. ET | ESPN | Dallas, TX

Sharp angle: Under (moved from 55 to 50.5)

If you’ve happened upon our game preview or line analysis for the First Responder Bowl, you’re probably already aware of why wiseguys have been attracted to this under.

Winds are expected to approach 20 mph throughout the game at the Cotton Bowl, which may even see some precipitation, especially in the second half.

With that forecast becoming more clear over the past few days, sharps have hammered away at the under, triggering five Sports Insights Bet Signals since Christmas Eve alone.

Cheez-It Bowl: TCU vs. California

9 p.m. ET | ESPN | Phoenix, AZ
