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.

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.

Peach Bowl: Houston vs FSU Odds

The 2015 Florida State Seminoles weren’t grabbing the same sort of headlines as last year’s club in the wake of the departure of standout quarterback Jameis Winston to the NFL, but the ‘Noles weren’t a bad team at all this season. FSU has relied on a strong defense that’s improved as the season went on. The Seminoles are set to face off against the Houston Cougars in the Peach Bowl, and their head coach knows a little something about winning bowl games. Seminoles bench boss Jimbo Fisher is 4-1 lifetime in five bowl appearances. 

The Cougars offense is one that makes opposing defenses sweat, as the unit finished eighth in the nation in scoring offense (42 points per game) in a season where Greg Ward Jr. came into his own under center. 

The UNDER is trending when FSU plays its next contest after a win. UNDER bettors have gotten a pay day in seven of the Seminoles’ last nine games in light of a victory, which is where they stand after topping Florida 27-2 on Nov. 28.

Auburn Has Been an Awful Spread Play

Auburn NCAA Football

Auburn had playoff aspirations to start the season, but instead they faltered to a 6-6 record and a trip to the Birmingham Bowl against the surprise powerhouse that is Memphis. The Tigers have been a pit for money, as they are a horrible 2-14-1 ATS in their last 17 games.

Auburn’s offense was a complete mess this season with quarterbacks combining for 10 passing touchdowns and nine interceptions. The only consistent threat offensively has been Peyton Barber, who has used his bruising frame to tally 13 touchdowns this season.

Paxton Lynch has arguably been the best quarterback in the nation this season, and already has pundits talking about how well he could look in a Cleveland Browns jersey. Lynch has completed 69 percent of his passes while tossing 28 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

Louisville Playing Well Against the SEC

Louisville NCAA Football

Louisville must be happy to be ending their season against an SEC opponent, as the Cardinals are 6-2 SU and ATS in their past eight games against the conference. Louisville and the Texas A&M Aggies will meet in Nashville for the Music City Bowl.

Though things have not always been perfect for freshman quarterback Lamar Jackson, his athleticism has greatly helped with his learning curve. Jackson has been competent as a passer, but he has been even better as a rusher as he leads Louisville in rushing yards and touchdowns.

Another year, another implosion by the Aggies. After starting the season 5-0, Texas A&M has gone 3-4 in their final seven games. The Aggies offense alternated explosive and downright difficult to watch performances as they averaged 37.1 points in their wins, while scoring a mere 10.8 in their losses.

Texas Bowl: LSU vs Texas Tech Odds

Fournette LSU

The Texas Bowl features two teams that are stark contrasts to each other in LSU and Texas Tech. Texas Tech runs a high-octane offense and seemingly never have any issue putting points on the board. The Red Raiders scored 559 points on the season, making their 46.6 points per game behind only the perennially high-flying Baylor Bears for first in the nation.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>LSU is 11-3 SU in its last 14 games in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone OVER in four of Texas Tech's last five games.</li>
<li>The total has gone OVER in seven of LSU's last eight games after a win.</li>

LSU suffered a fall from grace after starting the year a perfect 7-0 and ranking second in the College Football Playoff rankings. The Tigers proceeded to drop their next three for the first time in over 15 years, causing many to doubt the future of long time head coach Les Miles. Leonard Fournette is the lone standout on offense for the Tigers, as the running back rushed for a school record 1,741 yards this season. 

LSU has played well against the Big 12 recently, posting a 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS record against their last four opponents from the division.
