Orange Bowl Quarterback Prop Odds

Baker Mayfield Deshaun Watson

Two of the best quarterbacks in the nation face off against one another when the Oklahoma Sooners and Clemson Tigers meet in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Baker Mayfield has already become a legend in Norman after walking on to the team and throwing for 35 touchdowns and just five interceptions this season. Deshaun Watson was a Heisman finalist for No.1 ranked Clemson after throwing for 30 touchdowns and adding 11 more on the ground this season.

But the question is, which quarterback will fare better in the college football semifinals?

NCAAF: Championship Exact Results Prop

The Alabama Crimson Tide will likely remain the favorite to win the College Football Championship right up until kickoff of the semi-finals, but you can find some real profit in picking the exact result of the title game now.

According to Bovada the most likely outcome of the finals would see Alabama top the Oklahoma Sooners with that result being listed at +260. It seems like there is confidence that ‘Bama and OU will meet in the finals as Oklahoma beating Alabama is a close second on the odds list at +350.

Cotton Bowl: Michigan State vs Alabama

The Alabama Crimson Tide and Michigan State Spartans do battle in the Cotton Bowl with a berth in the National Championship Game on the line. The Crimson Tide has revelled in their games against Big 10 opponents as ‘Bama is 5-1 SU and ATS against the conference.

Alabama was, once again, one of the best teams in the nation this season much to the chagrin of anyone who is not a hardcore Tide fan. Alabama’s gameplan was built around the old grinding style of football years past with their defense ranking third in points against and running back Derrick Henry breaking Hershel Walker’s SEC rushing record.

Michigan State has been in playoff mode longer than most teams in the nation, with their inclusion coming based on a final game victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.  The Spartans ended their season with wins over two top five teams in the final three weeks with their defense holding opponents to just 14 points per game in that span..

Orange Bowl: Oklahoma vs Clemson

Many pundits are arguing that this year’s Orange Bowl between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Clemson Tigers may be the best bowl game of the season, but if history serves, OU may have a historical advantage. Oklahoma is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their past 12 games against ACC opponents.

Early in the season Oklahoma looked like a good, but not great team after suffering an embarrassing loss to Texas. Either the media or that loss lit a fire under the Sooners’ collective ass because they went on to win their remaining seven games while averaging 52 points per game. Transfer quarterback Baker Mayfield was a revelation in the newly adopted air raid offense, with the junior throwing for 35 touchdowns and just five interception this season.

Clemson finished their season as the only undefeated team in the nation with wins over three teams ranked in the top 10. The Tigers were one of the most consistent teams in the nation this season as they ranked in the top 20 in points per game, yards per game, points allowed and yards allowed.  Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson has put up a masterful stretch run to close out the season as he accounted for more than three and a half touchdowns per game over the past seven contests.

NHL Winter Classic: Canadiens vs Bruins

Subban Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens enter this season’s Winter Classic slumping, but a game against the Boston Bruins could very well help their cause. The Habs are 8-1 in their last nine games against the Bruins and have outscored their Original Six rival 32-14.

This will be the eighth official Winter Classic game in the NHL’s history and it appears that a packed stadium and playing outdoors has affected the hosting team. In the previous seven Winter Classic’s the road team is 5-2.

December has been a terrible month for the Canadiens as it will go down as the fourth-worst month in the team’s storied history (according to win percentage). The Habs were just 3-11 in their 14 games last month, which included a 3-1 loss to the Bruins. Montreal’s offense has been stagnant as they have averaged a mere 1.6 goals per game in their past 14 games.

The Bruins are not exactly coming into the Winter Classic booming either, as they are 1-3 in their last four games, but they did go off for seven goals in their last outing versus the Ottawa Senators. Boston has also excelled when facing Atlantic Division foes, as they have won seven of their last nine games within the division.

Outback Bowl: Northwestern vs Tennessee

Tennessee Football

The Outback Bowl has been one of the most exciting bowl games in recent years, and the 2015 version between Northwestern and Tennessee should be no different. The last four Outback Bowls were decided by just one score, including an overtime victory for Wisconson over Auburn last year and a thrilling triple-overtime win for Michigan State against Georgia in 2011.

The Volunteers were expected to contend for the SEC East title this year but suffered defeats at the hands of Oklahoma, Florida and Arkansas in the first half of the season before winning five straight contests to end the year on a high note. Northwestern was beginning to make some noise in the early goings of the campaign before falling off a proverbial cliff thanks to losses to Michigan and Iowa. But the Wildcats have been red-hot since, finishing with 10 wins for the first time since 1995.

Both clubs have been solid at the betting window lately, as Tennessee is 5-2 ATS in its last seven while Northwestern is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last five.

Big Ten Terrified of Playing USC

USC Football

USC has steamrolled Big Ten opponents with the Trojans winning the past 15 games against the conference while going 11-4 ATS in those games. USC will play the Wisconsin Badgers in the Holiday Bowl on December 30.

 

Since Clay Helton took over as head coach for the Trojans, the team has gone 5-2 with senior Cody Kessler lighting it up. The quarterback has thrown 11 touchdowns and just one interception since Helton came on as the coach of the Trojans.

 

Wisconsin has a tendency to play ugly, but their defense has been one of the best in the nation. The Badgers have allowed fewer points per game than any other team in the country and the third fewest yards per game.

Pacers Have Been an UNDER Machine

Indiana Pacers Paul George

The Indiana Pacers are beginning to look like their normal selves again and will have an opportunity to keep the good times rolling Wednesday in the Windy City.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 8-0 in the Pacers last 8 games.
  • The home team is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings between the Bulls and Pacers.
  • The Bulls are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Indiana will be attempting to garner a third straight win while limiting their opponents to under 90 points when they face off against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. The last time these clubs collided was on Nov. 16 when the Bulls emerged triumphant by a score of 93-87 —one of just two losses by Indy in the month.

Chicago has been a hard team to read this season, and it’s becoming increasingly evident the transition under rookie coach Fred Hoiberg has not been seamless. The Bulls have just two wins in their last five, but are coming off a 104-97 win over Toronto that saw three bench players combine for an impressive 51 points.

Raptors, Wizards Trending OVER Lately

Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry

The Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards are on opposite ends of the health spectrum ahead of Wednesday’s tilt at the Air Canada Centre. Toronto is finally healthy again with the return of talented big man Jonas Valanciunas and defensive stopper DeMarre Carroll, while Washington is still missing key backcourt member Bradley Beal and bench contributors like Nene Hilario and Drew Gooden.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 6-0 in the Wizards last 6 road games.
  • The OVER is 5-1 in the Raptors last 6 overall.
  • The underdog is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings between the Raptors and Wizards.

When the Raps step up on defense, they’re nearly unstoppable. The real key is bringing that effort on the defensive end every night. Toronto is 12-0 in its last 12 games when holding their opponents to double-digits and 0-7 when allowing 100 points or more in their previous 19 games.

The Wiz are coming off an ugly loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday that promptly halted their four-game winning streak. Washington averaged 108.4 points per game during that streak despite dealing with the aforementioned thin roster.

Toronto has historically dominated Washington in the regular season, claiming seven of the last eight meetings between the Eastern Conference clubs.
