Happy Holidays from the Zone and Happy Bowl Season as it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

In the coming weeks, tons or recap content coming on here and on cfbhourglass.com,  but we finished 56% ATS, 60% on Elite Eight games, 534-105 on Straight up picks and pegged 72% of the country within 3 games this year on our picks. Again we say thanks for all the interaction and believing in what we do.

Our two year record is now 968-197, straight up, with picks being made in March/April. We are already putting 2019 data together so be on the lookout for 2019 announcements.

So let’s have some fun with our bowl picks. I don’t take bowl picks serious, due to all the moving and shaking that takes place this time of year. Coaches come and go, players sit out and transfer – it’s a college football quagmire, but a fun one.

Below are Jakewim’s bowl picks for 2018.
