Betting History of the Peach Bowl

A committee appointed by the Lions Club of Atlanta was turned down three times in its attempt to bring a bowl game to the city. Finally, the group was granted NCAA certification in 1968 and the first Peach Bowl was played December 30 of that year at Georgia Tech’s Grant Field, which sounds like the name of a secret agent or a guy who sells vacuums door to door. LSU beat Florida State 31-27.

The game moved to Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium in 1971 and then to the Georgia Dome for 1993 through 2016. Since 2017, the game has been housed at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium – where the Falcons play!

From 1993 until 2013, this bowl matched an SEC school against one from the ACC, but when the College Football Playoff was created, the game became part of the New Year’s Six bowl rotation. The 2016 semifinal between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Washington was the first time a top-rated team played in the game. Of course, it was the Crimson Tide. They always seem to find a way to dominate. Darn you, Nick Saban!

The final collegiate game for Texas A&M Heisman winner and CFL almost-legend Johnny Manziel was in the Peach Bowl on December 31, 2013, against Duke. Johnny Football led the Aggies back from a 38-17 halftime deficit to a 52-48 win, turning in the greatest offensive performance in the game’s history by completing 30 of 38 passes for 382 yards and four scores while rushing for 73 yards and a TD. The Aggies were 14-point favorites, tied for the biggest spread ever in the game along with Alabama in 2016.

For bettors looking for a close game full of suspenseful moments, the Peach Bowl may not deliver. From 2008 to 2017, just three games were decided by nine or fewer points. The biggest rout in the game’s history was TCU (-3) over Ole Miss 42-3 in 2014.

The 2018 edition featured the No. 12-ranked UCF Knights vs the No. 7-ranked Auburn Tigers. UCF posted a perfect 12-0 SU record that season to go along with a 7-4-1 ATS record. After an upset win over Alabama, Auburn had hoped to punch its ticket into the College Football Playoff, but those hopes were dashed after losing to Central Florida.

The total was set at 70.5 and those who bet the OVER were in for a treat when they won their bets. Anyone who picked Auburn to cover the spread of -15, unfortunately, recorded a big L in their sportsbook accounts.

2019 Peach Bowl

On December 29, 2018, the No. 10-ranked Florida Gators (9-3) took on the No. 7-ranked Michigan Wolverines. Florida won 41-15 and covered the spread. Their 8-4 ATS record (4-3 at home, 4-1 away) made them a safe bet as they put on a touchdown display starting in the second quarter. Their on-field antics kept them in the end zone and kept kicker Evan McPherson very busy, which worked out well since his job is to kick the ball.

Despite Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson posting a stellar regular season – 2,600 yards passing, and 273 on the ground – his bowl numbers were the opposite. His season-low passer efficiency rating of 114.2 coupled with two interceptions did not bode well for his squad. Head coach Jim Harbaugh should rethink his chicken theory and maybe allow his players to snack on protein-rich fowl before games.
