There is one college football pick tonight.
UAB -1.5 spread against Northern Illinois for 3% of the bankroll.
Two respective conference champions square off in the Boca Raton Bowl as the UAB Blazers take on the Northern Illinois Huskies tonight.
These two teams couldn't be any different in terms of actual program history. Northern Illinois is a team that has set the benchmark in their conference and has year in and year out been vying for the conference championship for the better part of the last decade. They are no strangers to championships and bowl victories, which could lead them to being just a bit overconfident and comfortable in this setting.
For the UAB Blazers, it couldn't be much different. Just two years ago this program was shut down and football was taken away from the school (and the players), only to be re-instated. This year's team has proven that decision was the right one as they now have a chance to win their first bowl game in school history. This could be a huge accomplishment for a program which has had an incredible season and certainly deserves to be in this position. We believe they are going to be the team that is more motivated in this setting and that could be the difference in this one.
Stylistically, these teams are very similar as they both rely on their defense to win games. The difference however is that the Blazers have not only the stronger defense, but also the more potent and capable offense. We believe the UAB players will want this victory more and that will be the difference in this game.
