The 2015 Independence Bowl was one of the most exciting offensive games of the season, which means North Carolina State and Vanderbilt will have a tough act to follow after last year’s Virginia Tech’s 55-52 edging over Tulsa.
- The total has gone OVER in Vanderbilt's last four games against the Atlantic Coast.
- North Carolina State is 2-7 SU in its last nine games after a win.
- North Carolina State is 0-5 SU and ATS in its last five games against the Southeast.
Vanderbilt has traditionally been a fantastic bet in bowl games. The Commodores are 3-1 SU and ATS in their past four bowl games.
UNDER bettors who have been tailing N.C. State will likely continue that trend on December 26. The UNDER has gone 5-0 in the Wolfpack’s last five tilts. The OVER/UNDER went 4-7-1 in the Wolfpack’s 12 regular season games.
The Independence Bowl is one of just three bowl games happening on the day after Christmas, and it’s the only one happening during the evening hours. It’s going to be the last contest before the country’s top bowls start up a few days afterward.
