Texas Bowl: LSU vs Texas Tech Odds

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.

<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. 

Colorado State Has Owned Nevada

Looking for possibly the most redundant bowl game ever? Well you have it here. The Arizona Bowl features two teams from the same conference with a combined 13-11 record. The Colorado State Rams have decimated the Nevada Wolf Pack in their meetings, taking 10 of the past 12 SU.

The Rams finished their season on a four-game winning streak with their offense averaging 34.3 points per game. Sophomore quarterback Nick Stevens has put up some impressive numbers, but has problems keeping the ball with at least one turnover in five of the past six games.

Nevada’s offense is tied to the success of their run game with two back over 1,000 rushing yards this season. James Butler and Don Jackson have combined for 2181 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns this season.

UNC Succeeding After Failing To Cover

North Carolina comes into their bowl game off a loss in the ACC Championship game to Clemson, but the Tar Heels are 4-0 SU and ATS in their past four games following a failure to cover to spread. UNC and Baylor will meet in the Russell Athletic Bowl, which has shootout written all over it.

Quarterback Marquise Williams has put up some impressive numbers for the UNC offense this season with the senior throwing for 21 touchdowns and adding 11 more with his feet. Williams has 12 passing touchdowns, six rushing touchdowns and only two interceptions in the Tar Heels’ past six games.

Baylor limps into the Russell Athletic Bowl having lost three of their final four, which was capped off to a loss to the 5-7 Texas Longhorns. The quarterback situation is looking bleak for the Bears with the team turning to third-string Chris Johnson in this game. Johnson has made appearances in the past three games and completed just 39 percent of his passes for three touchdowns and two interceptions. 

Cal Failing to Cover The Spread

In an intriguing matchup of offensive styles, Cal and Air Force will clash in the Armed Forced Bowl on December 29. Cal has imploded during the second half of the year with the Golden Bears going 2-5 SU and ATS to close out their regular season.

Cal has one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Jared Goff. The junior, who is likely off to the NFL next season, has thrown for 4,252 yards and 37 touchdowns this season. But it will be interesting to see how Cal plays in this game with reports surfacing that coach Sonny Dykes wants out of his contract. 

Air Force has not received a ton of publicity this season, but this is a team that is coming off an appearance in the Mountain West Championship game and brought Michigan State to the brink earlier in the season. The option offense has the Falcons ranked third in rushing yards per game with Jacobi Owens leading the way.

Chippewas visit Minnesota Golden Gophers in Week P College Football Betting Clash

Minnesota will look to improve on its 5-7 record this week when they host Central Michigan in Week P action at Ford Field on Monday.

Minnesota will face the 6-5 Central Michigan Chippewas, who own a 8-3 ATS mark on the season. In totals betting, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are 7-5 so far this season while the Chippewas are 4-7.

NC State Unable to Top SEC Opponents

The Belk Bowl will feature and intriguing game between NC State and Mississippi State, with a quarterback duel in the center of the hype, but the Wolfpack has faltered against the SEC. NC State is 0-4 SU and ATS in their past four games against SEC opponents.

Jacoby Birssett has been the leader of NC State’s offense with the quarterback throwing for 19 touchdowns and adding five more with his feet. However, the rushing game is arguably the most important part of the offense for the Wolfpack as they have averaged over 200 rushing yards per game this season.

There may not be a more important player to his team in the nation as Dak Prescott is to the Bulldogs. After a lot of Heisman votes last year, Prescott has quietly thrown for 25 touchdowns and four interceptions while leading Mississippi State in rushing yards and touchdowns.

Military Bowl: Pitt vs Navy Odds

Navy and Pittsburgh headline the Military Bowl in what should be a tightly contested affair, as sportsbooks initially opened the Midshipmen as 4-point favorites for the tilt. Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds took a middle of the pack Midshipmen squad and brought them to new levels this season, becoming a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate in the process as the leader of Navy’s triple-option attack. 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-0 SU and ATS in its last five games in December.</li>
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games after losing the previous game.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of Pitts' last eight games against the AAC.</li>

Navy has only suffered defeats against Top 25 teams Notre Dame and Houston this season, which means Pitt will have their work cut out for them. The Panthers are no slouch, however. Under first-year head coach Pat Narduzzi, the Panthers had its first eight-win season since 2010 and their first winning record in the ACC since 2011. This will mark Narduzzi’s first bowl game of his career.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has given Navy fits in recent games, as the Midshipmen are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games versus the conference.

Foster Farms Bowl: Nebraska vs UCLA

The 2015 edition of the Fosters Farms Bowl pits the Nebraska Cornhuskers against the UCLA Bruins at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The Huskers are one of three teams that hold the unfortunate distinction of being the first crop to compete in a bowl game with a losing record (5-7 SU). 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>UCLA is 20-7 SU in its last 27 games.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of UCLA's last seven games after a loss.</li>
<li>Nebraska is 12-4 SU in its last 16 games after an ATS loss.</li>

Nebraska handed playoff-bound Michigan State its only loss —a 39-38 thriller in early November—but failed to find any consistency this year. Nebraska’s last game of the season (a 28-20 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes) saw quarterback Tommy Armstrong toss four interceptions in a disappointing effort. This team is better than its losing record indicates, however, and head coach Mike Riley has a good track record in bowl games. Riley owned a 6-2 record in bowls at Oregon State.

UCLA started off the season hot, rising to as high as seventh in the AP Top 25 before injuries brought them back down to earth. Despite that disappointment, the future is bright at UCLA. The Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year, quarterback Josh Rosen, was electric in his first year with the Bruins, throwing for 3,351 yards while tallying five separate 300-yard passing games. The Bruins have played well against Big 10 opponents, going 4-1 ATS in their last five vs the conference.

Washington State Covering With Ease

Washington State is known more for their ridiculous passing game more than anything, but they have also been great at covering with the Cougars going 8-1 ATS in their past nine games. Washington State will meet the Miami Hurricanes in the Sun Bowl on December 26.

Washington State finished the season leading the nation in passing yards per game for the second consecutive season on the arm of sophomore Luke Falk. The Cougars signal caller threw for 4,266 passing yards and 36 touchdowns this season, despite missing the team’s regular season closer. Falk is dealing with a concussion so his status will be critical in this game.

Miami has one more game until the Mark Richt era starts, but the Hurricanes would certainly like to introduce him to the team as bowl winners. Quarterback Brad Kaaya has proven adept at protecting the ball this season with just four interceptions, which has led to The U to average 31 points per game.

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.
