College Football: Sun Bowl and Chick-Fil-A Bowl

Jack Benyon

Sun Bowl

Virginia Tech Hokies @ UCLA Bruins – Tues, Dec 31 19:00

El Paso, Texas hosts the Sun Bowl between the 9-3 Bruins and the 8-4 Hokies. The Hokies boast the best defensive unit in the country, and went on a 6 game winning streak during the season. The Bruins boast an explosive offense with an average defence, so the comparison of these 2 teams is completely opposite. The Bruins go in as Bet 365 10/29 favourites, while the Hokies are 5/2 with Boylesports. For less than 47 points to be scored in this game, Bet Victor give 10/11 and Bet 365 offer 5/9. The last 13 of 16 Sun Bowls have been decided by 10 points or less, so the Bruins to win by 1-6 is 7/2 with Bet 365, and with Virginia’s strangling defence, first half points under 23.5 could be an option at 10/11 with Bet 365. The likelihood of either of these teams scoring 3 times unanswered is unlikely, and that makes 19/10 with Bet 365 a fantastic option for this game.

Chick-Fil-A Bowl

Duke Blue Devils @ Texas A&M Aggies – Weds, Jan 1 1:00

We could well be looking at Johnny Manziel’s last game as the Aggies quarterback as the former Heisman winner may choose to declare for the NFL draft after this game. The Aggies are 8-4 on the season and go in as 2/9 favourites with Ladbrokes. The 10-3 Blue Devils are 7/2 with Stan James. Duke has had a great season by their standards, finishing the season 8-0 before losing to Florida State in the last game of the season. The Aggies had a steady season, although perhaps not as good as everybody expected, as they failed to beat any of the top teams they faced including Missouri and LSU. The Aggies to score over 31.5 points in this game is 17/20 with Bet Victor, while the Blue Devils to score under 31.5 is 10/11 with Stan James. Although Duke has the better record, the opposition they faced is not of the quality that the Aggies have had to deal with this season. Therefore the Aggies to win by 1-6 is 9/4 and by 7-12 or 13-18 4/1, all with Bet 365. Bet 365 are also offering 5/11 on the Aggies to have the highest scoring quarter. For the first score of the game to be a field goal is a nice outsider at 12/5 with Bet 365, and Coral offer 10/11 on the game to be under 75 points.

BET OF THE DAY – Virginia Tech Hokies @ UCLA Bruins – Neither team to score 3 unanswered times 19/10 Bet 365.
