PODCAST: New Year's Bowl Picks Against The Spread

The final 2012 episode of the Eye On College Football Podcast tackles one of our favorite topics: against-the-spread picks. In this edition, Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) and I are tackling all of the bowl games on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Between these two days of revelry and celebration, there are 10 bowl games to help us ring in 2013. We figure that you, like us, would be interested in the point spreads. Tom and I are here to give some background and explain the CBSSports.com Expert Picks.

For all of the against-the-spread picks from Dennis Dodd, Bruce Feldman, Jerry Hinnen, Matt Hinton, Tom and myself, cruise on over to the Expert Picks page. For specific game picks in the podcast, check them out in the player below.
