Chick-fil-A Bowl Betting Trends: The ACC has won three of past four Chick-fil-A Bowls vs SEC schools . . . The Aggies have won and covered in two straight bowl games after losing 12 of their previous 14 bowl games SU.

It has been a breakout season for the Duke Blue Devils, posting a 10-3 record SU, their first winning season since 1994, winning the ACC Coastal Division, and earning a berth in the ACC Championship Game against Florida State. As expected, the Blue Devils were routed by the Seminoles, 45-7. But they were an impressive 8-0 in their previous eight games, 7-1 ATS, recording SU victories as underdogs on four occasions.  The Blue Devils’ last three games have played UNDER. The OVER has won once when Duke has played away from home. The Texas A&M Aggies have an 8-4 record SU this season, and own one of the nation’s top offenses; ranked seventh in average PPG with 43.58, eighth in offensive passing yards with 350.92, and fifth in total offensive yards with 538.17. However, the Aggies have dropped their last two games, scoring just a combined 31 points against a pair of Top 25 teams. The Aggies are 0-3 ATS in their last three games, and are 0-4 ATS in games away from home this season.

Despite losing Cam Newton and Nick Fairley to the NFL, the Auburn Tigers managed to earn bowl eligibility this year and will take on the Virginia Cavaliers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. This is Virginia’s first bowl bid since 2007.

Virginia put together an impressive 8-4 SU season (5-6-1 ATS) thanks in large part to its defense, which held opponents to just 22.3 points per game and led to the Cavaliers going UNDER in 10 of their 12 games. After starting off the season 4-1 SU (2-3 ATS), Auburn went just 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS over its last seven games. [ $100 Free Bet Matching offer - check out the new Bovada ]

Auburn’s passing attack struggled all year, but the offense worked thanks to sophomore running back Michael Dyer. Dyer rushed for 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns on 242 carries during the regular season.

Interestingly, 9 of past 12 Chick Fil A Bowls have played UNDER the total. Watch the latest over under line moves for the best number.

No. 23 Florida State’s defense let them down late in the season, and that could be the reason No. 19 South Carolina is a 3-point favorite in the Chick-fil-A Bowl odds when college football betting hits its peak on New Year’s Eve.

[Chick-fil-A Bowl Matchup Stats]

This game features teams that fell short in their quest for conference titles, with both falling in the final game. South Carolina won nine games for the first time in nearly a decade, and that included victories over Alabama and Florida.

The Gamecocks' offense is centered around first-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who was second in the SEC with 1,198 yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. Stephen Garcia will try and get the ball into the hands of Alshon Jefferey, who set a school record with 79 catches and 1,387 yards.

While South Carolina is strong on offense, it is their defense that is leading the league in rushing yards allowed with 107.2 per game. They also led the league in sacks with 27. They say good defense wins championships, and that should make the Gamecocks' betting line popular with the NCAAF odds so small in this game.

Florida State can only wait and see if starting QB Christian Ponder will be back after injuring his elbow. It will be an uphill climb even if Ponder is in, but the college football betting odds will turn further in favor of their opponents if he is out.

If the Seminoles are to claim a bowl title they will have to get closer to their average of 177.7 yards rushing. But a 53-yard performance in the ACC title game that cost them a crown will make their odds of claiming the Chick-fil-A Bowl even more difficult.

Eight games made winners of OVER bettors in South Carolina matchups this season and they could be poised to run the score up on an injury-riddled Florida State team. Of note, the SEC is 4-1 in the past 5 games.
