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
