MINTY BETS: It's time for our New Year's six of bowl picks. I'm Minty Bets here with Jared Quay here to give you our best bets. Jared, what do you like out of all these bowl games?

JARED QUAY: Um, it's-- bowl series is always tricky because you don't know what teams are going to be like. We don't care anymore because we didn't make the playoffs. So these ones are definitely difficult.

But still, I'm betting against the team that I don't think is in the same level-- the non-power 5 team. I'm going against Cincinnati. I know if you're a Bearcat fan, you're not going to like this. But they're just not ready to go against a real true powerhouse trenches like Georgia. So I'm taking Georgia minus 7.

Plus, JT Daniels has been slinging the ball. It looks like he's got a second life there. And I just think Georgia, from the trenches, should be able to dominate both offensive and defensive side of the ball. Cincy's defense has been good against AAC teams. But now they're playing against the SEC team, and I just don't think they're going to be able to keep up.

MINTY BETS: I love it. That was actually my second pick. But my first pick? We're taking it to the Orange Bowl as the Texas A&M Aggies take on the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Now, I like the over in this game. The Aggies offense is averaging about 32 points per game, and the Tar Heels are averaging a little under 43 points per game. And they're 5 and 2 to the over their last seven. So give me the over in this one.

JARED QUAY: Yeah, and they ain't going to be able to run over-- the Tar Heels ain't going to be able to run over Texas A&M like they ran with my Canes. See, I don't like that. They can't do that to my Hurricanes and win a Bowl game. Can't do that.
