Idaho Potato Bowl Prediction - Idaho Vs Colorado State Odds

Bet Idaho Potato Bowl Football PicksVenue: Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

When: Thursday, December 22, 2016 - 7:00 p.m. ET - ESPN

Where: Bronco Stadium (37,000) – Boise, Idaho

Who: Idaho Vandals vs. Colorado State Rams

Previous Names: - MPC Computers - Roady's - uDrove Humanitarian Bowl

Notable MVPs: Matt Ryan, Paul Pinegar, P.J. Daniels

Any time the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl has had the opportunity to take one of the two teams from the state of Idaho, it has gone ahead and done just that, and that's what it has this year in what very well could be the last ever bowl game for the Idaho Vandals before they drop into the FCS in a couple seasons.

Idaho had a sneaky good season with eight wins, including four straight to end the campaign, but the Colorado State Rams are the heavy favorites in this game due to the fact that they too were incredibly hot down the stretch. Nick Stevens is the third starting quarterback for CSU this season, but he's the best of the bunch with a 14/1 TD/INT ratio since taking over as the team's starting quarterback. Toss in the fact that the MWC has provided a significantly greater degree of competition from the Sun Belt, and it's easy to see why bettors shouldn't be so quick to just jump on those points with the de facto hosts.

Well you've come to the right place, as we get set to preview each College bowl and prediction on this year's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Opening Line: Western Kentucky -5

Preview: What you don't see often in bowl games between minor conference teams is a team with a lesser record being favored by any substantial margin over a team with a greater record. We're not suggesting that the Idaho Vandals are truly a better team than the Colorado State Rams, but to see them getting nearly two full touchdowns in a de facto home game in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl almost seems a bit shocking for bettors.

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Betting Tips

One of the first things to look for when examining the college football bowl odds is the current form of the teams. Some teams are coming into the bowl game playing very well, while others are coming in flat or disappointed.

Motivation is a big key factor when it comes to looking at college football bowl betting lines, we also have to look at other things.

Schedule strength, turnovers, recent form, and overall team power ratings are things to consider as the bowl games begin. You also want to take the individual game odds into consideration.

2013 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Champions

San Diego State had its best performance in its season finale.

Behind a swarming defense, an offense fueled by big plays and opportunistic special teams, the Aztecs rolled to a 49-24 victory over Buffalo in the 2013 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
