College Bowl Picks, New Orleans Bowl: Ohio Vs. Troy

The 2010 college football postseason kicks off tomorrow, and it's time to place all your money set aside for Christmas shopping on ridiculous, half-assed bowl games played by largely inept football teams. Degenerate gamblers, start your engines. Now playing: Ohio vs. Troy in the New Orleans Bowl.

The line: Varies a bit. We've seen it anywhere from Ohio by one point to Troy by three.

Notable Ohio units: The Bobcats are a top-ten punting team (woo!) and boast a top-15 run defense. Less stellar is their turnover margin, tied for 85th in the nation.

Notable Troy units:
The Trojans are air-happy as usual this season, ranking 12th nationally in passing offense, 24th in total offense, and 27th in scoring offense. Their downfall comes on D and special teams, with the country's 93rd-ranked overall defense, 92nd-ranked scoring defense, and 118th-ranked kickoff return unit.

The pick: Ohio, who by and large played strong in a strong MAC while Troy struggled to retain its perch atop the Sun Belt.
