Let's kick off the bowl season with the Myrtle Beach Bowl, a matchup between the Sun Belt and C-USA. Since we have just one game on Monday, I'll make sure to focus on the showdown/single-game formats in my analysis.
Appalachian State vs. North Texas (+19.5) O/U: 63.5
Unfortunately, we don't get to begin with a competitive bowl game as this is a lopsided matchup between a decent Mountaineers squad (finished 2nd in the Sun Belt) and a lower-tier Mean Green squad (finished 4th in C-USA). No disrespect to North Texas, however, they fielded one of the worst defenses in the nation while giving up 509.4 yards per game and 41.3 points per game. App State is on the other side of the spectrum with one of the better defenses in the nation at just 313.5 yards per game and 19.3 points per game. This means that most DFS players will have a concrete idea of how this game is going to go and we'll take that into account when recommending players for cash and tournament formats.
Conway, SC (~56 degrees & 50% chance of rain)
The forecast looks like it will clear up by the 1:30 PM CT kick-off, so I wouldn't expect the weather to have a huge effect on this game. Even if the potential rain from the morning lingers, it doesn't appear to be a significant storm or anything.
