For 2PM on a Tuesday, the Armed Forces Bowl will certainly keep you riveted to your seat. Offense aplenty as Cal’s Air Raid offense goes against the most explosive branch of the military in football. Not only that but both schools has vulnerabilities on their defense that are easily exploitable by the other. 67 is your total with the Pac 12 school being a touchdown favorite. So join us right now to see which way the profit will flow in this one.
Jared Goff is Good
Arm strength to go vertical and accurate enough for the short game, Jared Goff fuels the Cal offense. He has over 50 percent completion rate when going deep with over 1,200 yards doing so which ranks third in the nation. His dropback timing is a scant 2.6 seconds which means he is also capable of quick decisions. This combination should carve apart a porous Air Force secondary. They rank a mere 67th in defending the pass coming into this one.
As per normal, the military academies focus more on running the football. Air Force is second in the nation in yards gained on the ground. With Cal, this is their prime vulnerability as they can not even crack the Top 100 in yard defensed via the rush. Only thing that puts the total of 67 in peril of going under are the capacity of killing the clock this kind of attack has on a game.
Stronger conference with a pro quarterback means that Cal can not be stopped. Air Force has to play to perfect to remain in earshot of this one. A touchdown is not too much to spot in this one. Go with the Bears in the Armed Forces Bowl minus the points for the profit. Good fortune and we will have more college bowl free picks later this week.
