Heart of Dallas Bowl Odds

After missing out on bowl season a year ago the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will both make their return to the postseason this year when they meet up in the Heart of Dallas Bowl at the Cotton Bowl.

Illinois’ last trip to a bowl game was the 2011 Fight Hunger Bowl, when they edged UCLA 20-14 as a 3-point favorite on the betting lines at the sportsbooks. Louisiana Tech’s last bowl invite was the 2011 Poinsettia Bowl, when they lost to TCU 31-24 as a 9.5-point underdog. The Bulldogs are the Heart of Dallas Bowl betting favorite.

Liberty Bowl Odds

After a brief one-year exodus the West Virginia Mountaineers will return to a bowl game on December 29 when they take on the Texas A&M Aggies in the Liberty Bowl.

The Mountaineers didn’t qualify for a bowl game last season, and last appeared in the postseason in the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl. They lost that game 38-14 to Syracuse as a 4-point favorite and own a 1-4 ATS record in their last five bowl games.

Sun Bowl Odds

The Pac-12’s Arizona State Sun Devils will be looking to heat things up against the ACC’s Duke Blue Devils in this season’s Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso.

At one time this season some thought the Sun Devils might be playing on New Year’s Day with an 8-1 straight-up (and 5-4 against the spread) start to the year, but losses to Oregon State and Arizona both SU and ATS derailed those plans. The Blue Devils had visions of a return trip to the ACC title game, but they came unhinged in losses (SU and ATS) to Virginia Tech and North Carolina.

Music City Bowl Odds

Two teams that stumbled to the end of the year will be looking to turn things around during bowl season when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and LSU Tigers clash in the Music City Bowl on December 30.

The Fighting Irish defeated Rutgers 29-16 as a 14.5-point favorite in the Pinstripe Bowl last year. That improved Notre Dame’s record in their last five bowl games to 3-2 SU, but dropped them to 2-3 ATS. The Tigers knocked off Iowa 21-14 as an 8-point favorite in the Outback Bowl last season. That was LSU’s third straight ATS loss in a bowl game.

Holiday Bowl Odds

This season’s National University Holiday Bowl features a much-anticipated Big Ten vs. Pac-12 showdown between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the USC Trojans.

Nebraska has already found its new head coach in Mike Riley, but look for Barney Cotton to be calling the shots in this game. The Cornhuskers closed out the regular season 3-2 straight-up with a 1-3-1 record against the spread. The total went OVER in four of those five games. USC matched that mark at 3-2 SU down the stretch and it was 2-3 ATS in its last five games. The total stayed UNDER in four of those contests.

Pinstripe Bowl Odds

The Penn State Nittany Lions return to postseason play for the first time since 2012 to square off against the Boston College Eagles in this year's New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

The Nittany Lions finished the regular season on a down note with back-to-back losses both straight-up and against the spread and the total has stayed UNDER in three of their last five games. Boston College went 2-2 SU in its last four games, but it built up a head of steam for bettors with a 3-1 record ATS in its last four games including a tight three-point loss to Florida State as a 16.5-point road underdog.
