Predictions for 2020-21 college football bowls
The model recommends No. 13 North Carolina (+7.5), remains within the spread against No. 5 Texas A&M at the 2021 Orange Bowl on January 2. Texas A&M believed it could beat Notre Dame to be the College Football Playoff’s final spot. It lost only against Alabama early in the season. The playoff was canceled when the Aggies were relegated in a New Years Six bowl.
This is a common letdown spot for large-time programs. The Tar Heels, despite the loss of some players who chose to prepare for the NFL Draft and other injuries, should be motivated to win big in their second season under Mack Brown. This season, North Carolina averaged 556.6 yards per game. That was fourth in the nation.
Sam Howell is the quarterback of the Tar Heels. They averaged 43.0 point per game. The Aggies allowed 747 yards passing and eight touchdowns to the second signal caller, while Howell averaged 10.6 yards per attempt. The model predicts Howell will throw for over 275 yards and two touchdowns per game to help the Tar Heels cover well over 50% of simulations.
Another top pick for college football is No. 11 Indiana (-8.5), covers the spread when it faces the Ole Miss Rebels at 12:30 p.m. ET. The matchup Saturday will see one of the most dynamic offenses in the country facing off against a very stingy defense.
This season, the Rebels average 562.4 yards of offense per game, which is third in the country. Ole Miss will not have two of its best playmakers Saturday. Elijah Moore, wide receiver, ranks second in the country with 1,193 receiving yards. Kenny Yeboah is a tight end who averages 19.4 yards per reception. Both chose to concentrate on the 2021 NFL Draft.
Indiana is allowing just 19.4 points per match this season. In fact, the Hoosiers have allowed 11 points or less in three of their four previous games. SportsLine’s model predicts that Indiana will allow the Rebels to score just 26 points on Saturday. This is well below their season average (40.6). The simulations show Indiana covering the spread in over 60% of simulations. However, the over (65.5%) hits more than 50% of the time.Last Updated on October 2, 2021
