NC State Unable to Top SEC Opponents

NC State Football NCAA

The Belk Bowl will feature and intriguing game between NC State and Mississippi State, with a quarterback duel in the center of the hype, but the Wolfpack has faltered against the SEC. NC State is 0-4 SU and ATS in their past four games against SEC opponents.

Jacoby Birssett has been the leader of NC State’s offense with the quarterback throwing for 19 touchdowns and adding five more with his feet. However, the rushing game is arguably the most important part of the offense for the Wolfpack as they have averaged over 200 rushing yards per game this season.

There may not be a more important player to his team in the nation as Dak Prescott is to the Bulldogs. After a lot of Heisman votes last year, Prescott has quietly thrown for 25 touchdowns and four interceptions while leading Mississippi State in rushing yards and touchdowns.

College Football Playoff

While the bowl games have been around for decades, the College Football Playoff has only been in effect since 2014. The NCAA Football post-season contest is preceded by the Bowl Coalition, Bowl Alliance and the BCS. This new structure is still in infant stages and has introduced a bracket-style competition that seeds four teams to participate in the semi-finals. The winners of the two semi-final games advance to the National Championship.


Military Bowl: Pitt vs Navy Odds

Navy Football

Navy and Pittsburgh headline the Military Bowl in what should be a tightly contested affair, as sportsbooks initially opened the Midshipmen as 4-point favorites for the tilt. Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds took a middle of the pack Midshipmen squad and brought them to new levels this season, becoming a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate in the process as the leader of Navy’s triple-option attack. 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-0 SU and ATS in its last five games in December.</li>
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games after losing the previous game.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of Pitts' last eight games against the AAC.</li>

Navy has only suffered defeats against Top 25 teams Notre Dame and Houston this season, which means Pitt will have their work cut out for them. The Panthers are no slouch, however. Under first-year head coach Pat Narduzzi, the Panthers had its first eight-win season since 2010 and their first winning record in the ACC since 2011. This will mark Narduzzi’s first bowl game of his career.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has given Navy fits in recent games, as the Midshipmen are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games versus the conference.

Foster Farms Bowl: Nebraska vs UCLA

UCLA Rosen

The 2015 edition of the Fosters Farms Bowl pits the Nebraska Cornhuskers against the UCLA Bruins at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The Huskers are one of three teams that hold the unfortunate distinction of being the first crop to compete in a bowl game with a losing record (5-7 SU). 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>UCLA is 20-7 SU in its last 27 games.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of UCLA's last seven games after a loss.</li>
<li>Nebraska is 12-4 SU in its last 16 games after an ATS loss.</li>

Nebraska handed playoff-bound Michigan State its only loss —a 39-38 thriller in early November—but failed to find any consistency this year. Nebraska’s last game of the season (a 28-20 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes) saw quarterback Tommy Armstrong toss four interceptions in a disappointing effort. This team is better than its losing record indicates, however, and head coach Mike Riley has a good track record in bowl games. Riley owned a 6-2 record in bowls at Oregon State.

UCLA started off the season hot, rising to as high as seventh in the AP Top 25 before injuries brought them back down to earth. Despite that disappointment, the future is bright at UCLA. The Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year, quarterback Josh Rosen, was electric in his first year with the Bruins, throwing for 3,351 yards while tallying five separate 300-yard passing games. The Bruins have played well against Big 10 opponents, going 4-1 ATS in their last five vs the conference.

Washington State Covering With Ease

Washington state Football

Washington State is known more for their ridiculous passing game more than anything, but they have also been great at covering with the Cougars going 8-1 ATS in their past nine games. Washington State will meet the Miami Hurricanes in the Sun Bowl on December 26.

Washington State finished the season leading the nation in passing yards per game for the second consecutive season on the arm of sophomore Luke Falk. The Cougars signal caller threw for 4,266 passing yards and 36 touchdowns this season, despite missing the team’s regular season closer. Falk is dealing with a concussion so his status will be critical in this game.

Miami has one more game until the Mark Richt era starts, but the Hurricanes would certainly like to introduce him to the team as bowl winners. Quarterback Brad Kaaya has proven adept at protecting the ball this season with just four interceptions, which has led to The U to average 31 points per game.

Duke Can’t Get It Done vs the Big Ten


The Blue Devils looked like they were on the path to a big game in the bowl season, but Duke lost four of their final five games to finish the season 7-5. Duke now gets the Indiana Hoosiers in the Pinstripe Bowl, which could be bad news as the Blue Devils are 2-12 SU in their last 14 against the Big Ten.

Through their first seven games of the season the Blue Devils were allowing a mere 14.1 points per game, but the defense fell apart and allowed 38 in their final five games of the season. Quarterback Thomas Sirk has been the key to Duke’s offense as he has contributed 21 touchdowns this season.

Indiana may be 6-6, but their record could have looked more impressive. The Hoosiers had a six-game losing streak in the middle of the season that saw them lose by one score or less against Ohio State, Rutgers, Iowa and Michigan. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld has been a stud has he has thrown for five touchdowns and no interceptions in the past three games.

Washington Struggling With Consistency

Washington Football

The Washington Huskies slipped into the Bowl season with a 6-6 record, which reflects their inconsistencies this year. Washington is just 1-3 SU and ATS in their past four games following a win. The Huskies will look to rectify that when they clash with Southern Mississippi in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

Extra practice for Jake Browning is not a bad thing for Washington as the freshman is looking to build on his solid season. Browning was the third-highest rated pro-style quarterback coming into college this season and the Huskies offense is going to go as far as his arm will take them over the next few seasons.

Not enough people are talking about Todd Monken this season after he turned a team who has won a combined four games the past two years into a Bowl season team. The Golden Eagles have been good on both sides of the ball and have netted an average scoring margin of +15.8 this season.

Marshall A Stellar Bet Late In The Season

Marshall NCAA Football

The St. Petersburg Bowl will feature Marshall looking to continue late season profits for bettors as the Thundering Herd has gone 10-3 ATS in their past 13 games in December. Marshall will take on the UConn Huskies in the first of six games on December 26.

Marshall ended the season on a skid, going 1-2 in their final three games with losses to Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky. The Herd is one of those teams that will put up points (32 PPG), but have held opponents to a meagre 18.4 points per game this season. Freshman quarterback Chase Litton stepped into the void left by Rakeem Cato admirably, with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. 

Most people still see UConn as a whipping boy, but the team has a win over Houston and are in a bowl game. The Huskies will need anything their offense can give them in this game as they average a sad 17.0 points per game this season

Virginia Tech is Demolishing The AAC

Virginia Tech NCAA Football

If history serves, Virginia Tech was more than happy to see they are facing Tulsa in the Independence Bowl this year. The Hokies are 25-5 SU in their last 30 games against AAC opponents.

This will be Frank Beamer’s last game on the sidelines for Virginia Tech after more than two decades coaching the Hokies. So it is needless to say Virginia Tech will be plenty motivated. Isaiah Ford has been the one bright spot offensively for the Hokies as he could become the first receiver in school history with 1,000 yards in a season in this game.

The other sideline is a different story, as first year head coach Philip Montgomery made Tulsa one of the top offenses in the nation. The Golden Hurricanes stood toe-to-toe with some of the best teams in the nation this season and despite not having a landmark win, they are a real threat to score every time the offense takes the field.
