Thursday, December 30, will bring us the 2021 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. This annual college football game is the ninth-oldest bowl game in the college football stratosphere, boasting 16 straight sellouts from 1998 to 2013.

Peach Bowl odds for Pittsburgh vs Michigan State are available at your favorite online sportsbook with the College Football Playoff kicking into high gear.

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 on 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.

2021 Peach Bowl: Pittsburgh Vs Michigan State

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 2017 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.

2021 Peach Bowl Odds

When Pittsburgh takes on Michigan State in the 2021 Peach Bowl, oddsmakers are forecasting a tight game with the spread currently sitting at 2.5. The line has shifted drastically due to the fact that Panthers QB Kenny Pickett, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist, has opted out of the game to begin preparing for the NFL draft.

2020 Peach Bowl Odds

The matchup between the Georgia Bulldogs and Cincinnati Bearcats in the 2020 Peach Bowl was a lower-scoring affair with Georgia ekeing out a 24-21 victory.

2019 Peach Bowl

On December 28, 2019, the No. 1-ranked LSU Tigers (14-0) took on the No. 4-ranked Oklahoma Sooners. LSU won 63-28 and easily covered the spread. The Tigers were led by current NFL quarterback Joe Burrow, who broke multiple quarterback records that season. Burrow and another current NFL star, Justin Jefferson, were unstoppable in this one. Burrow threw for an absurd 493 yards and seven touchdowns, while Jefferson had 14 receptions for 227 yards and four scores.

Although Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts had a stellar regular season – 3,851 yards passing and 1,298 on the ground – his bowl numbers were underwhelming. Hurts completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw for 217 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
