12/20 Free NCAA Football Bowl Pick and Hot Chicks: Utah Versus Navy

We are kicking off the bowl season with the first official bowl of the season and laying a Derek Jeter bet on the game.

2 Unit Bet = The Derek Jeter Bet – In honor of one of our favorite athletes, the 2 unit bet will be a tribute to all of the women Derek Jeter has allegedly slept with including, Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johanson, Mariah Carey, Anna Kournikouva, Miss Universes, models, etc…. We have a ton of chicks to choose for this bet in honor of our man Derek Jeter.

This week we are going with Miss Anna Kournikova. She is always a crowd pleaser.

The rumor was that Derek Jeter courted her in Vegas before an Enrique Iglesias concert. Enrique was her boyfriend at the time. Witnesses reported that before the concert Anna and Jeter enjoyed dinner together. Dinner for them, according to the witnesses, consisted of drinks, food and a lot of making out and canoodling. The couple then disappeared to parts unknown and Anna later resurfaced in time to make the show. What happened during this time? We have no clue. However, if we know our man Jeter, we think he drove the runner home from 2nd with two outs!!!! Just like he always does!!! Of course, this is all rumors and just our opinion about two extremely popular public figures.

Rumors aside, this would not be a true RPJ Syndicate blog if we did not represent Miss Anna’s backside….

Mr. Derek Jeter is one lucky man!!! On with the free winning pick….

Utah (-7.5) versus Navy in the SAN DIEGO COUNTY CREDIT UNION POINSETTIA BOWL

This Utah team is really a tale of two seasons…the season with QB Brian Johnson and the season without QB Brian Johnson. Utah was 1-3 on the season after the first four games and QB Johnson was injured in the first game, an opening loss to Oregon State. When QB Johnson returned in game 5, the Utes rattled off 7 straight wins, including road wins at Louisville and TCU. The Utes then suffered a crushing loss in the last game of the regular season to BYU on the last drive of the game. This Utah team is for real on defense and ranked 3rd in the nation by allowing only 15.6 points per game. They also only gave up 5 TDs in their last 6 games and two of those were to BYU in the last game.

Navy is an explosive team on offense and led the country in rushing with 351 yards per game. They also like to spread the ball around and had 7 different players rush for more than 460 yards. Where Navy struggles is on defense. Actually, I do not think they actually play defense so lets just say when Navy is not running the ball. When Navy was not running the ball this season they allowed 36.5 points per game and they let opponents breach the 40-point mark seven times, including a 59-point effort from Delaware and a 62-point tally from North Texas. They won that North Texas game 74-62 but lost to Delaware 59-52. Besides the Army game, their average margin of victory on the season was only 7 points and this was against the likes of Temple, Duke, North Texas and Northern Illinois. When Navy faced a legitimate team they lost…Lost to Wake Forest 44-24, Lost to Rutgers 41-24 and somehow lost to Ball State and Delaware.

Lets look at some against the spread numbers:

Navy
Midshipmen are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games.

Utah
Utes are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.
Utes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Bowl games.
Utes are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in December.
Utes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 bowl games.
Utes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
Utes are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Utes are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
Utes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
Utes are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games on grass.
Utes are 22-7-1 ATS in their last 30 non-conference games.

This line opened at 10 points and has dropped to 7.5 points in favor of Utah. We think this line is going in the wrong direction and we think it is because of their one significant common opponent….Air Force. Utah lost to Air Force 20-12 and lost when their QB Johnson was out. Navy beat Air Force 31-20. The so called experts are saying that Utah will  struggle with Navy’s running game because Air Force has a similar offense and beat Utah. Well Air Force scored over 30 points seven times on the season and only scored 20 against Utah. This is a different Utah team now that QB Johnson is back. They easily could have been riding an 8 game winning streak into this game. Both teams have an offense that can score but Utah is the only team that has a defense and that fact will be key in this game. Throw in the fact that Navy coach Paul Johnson left to become the head coach at Georgia Tech and we think this is another strike against Navy. Navy will play tough and will play in front of a possible home crowd environment in San Diego but in the end Utah has more of a complete team that will wear Navy down.

Utah wins and covers!!!
