When it comes to college football, there are few who deserve the "expert" tag quite like Barrett Sallee. The CBS Sports writer and analyst hosts shows on SiriusXM College, writes for CBSSports.com and appears regularly on CBS Sports HQ as well as countless radio shows across the nation as a guest.

Sallee debuted with SportsLine in 2017 and has delivered in a BIG way. He went 59-35-2 (63 percent, plus $2,037) on all his college football picks for SportsLine in 2019, and he enters bowl season on a sizzling 68-41 streak on his best bets since the start of last year. Anybody who has been following him is WAY UP.

Now, he's turned his attention to the college football bowl odds from William Hill Sportsbook (see the latest college football lines for each game this week on our college football odds page) and is revealing his three top plays for Dec. 22. A parlay on these three picks would return 6-1. 

We can tell you Sallee is taking the Under 72.5 in the matchup between No. 16 BYU and Central Florida in the 2020 Boca Raton Bowl at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. 

"It's easy to look at this game and think "'oh, BYU and UCF can light it up offensively -- the Over is a slam dunk,'" Sallee said. "UCF finished sixth in the AAC in defensive yards per play over the final month-plus of the season, and BYU's offense has tailed off a bit over the last couple of games. This will be more of a battle in the trenches than oddsmakers think."

Sallee has also found two other college football picks he loves, including a play on an underdog he thinks can win outright! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any college football picks.
