Top 2020-21 college football bowl predictions
One of the top college football bowl picks the model is recommending: No. 18 Miami (FL) keeps it within the spread against No. 21 Oklahoma State (-2) in the 2020 Cheez-It Bowl on Dec. 29. The Hurricanes fell flat in their regular season finale against North Carolina, but that doesn’t diminish their overall campaign. They went 8-2 overall and covered in two of their final three games as well. Oklahoma State, meanwhile, finished strong against Baylor, but failed to cover in the prior five games and was just 3-6 ATS on the season.
Hurricanes quarterback D’Eriq King throws for almost 300 yards and adds 70 on the ground in the simulations, helping them pick up the cover almost 70 percent of the time. The over (59.5) also clears in well over 50 percent of simulations.
Another one of the top college football bowl predictions from the model: No. 20 Texas (-9.5) covers against Colorado in the 2020 Alamo Bowl at 9 p.m. ET on Dec. 29. The Longhorns will be playing a short bus ride away in San Antonio in this one as they look to close their up-and-down campaign with a win. Texas appears to have a big edge at quarterback in this matchup.
Sam Ehlinger is one of the more productive quarterbacks in program history and the model is calling for him to combine for around 300 yards through the air and on the ground, while having a hand in three total touchdowns. Colorado quarterback Sam Noyer, meanwhile, is dealing with a shoulder injury and is questionable for this matchup.
The model projects that Texas covers over 50 percent of the time, while the under (63.5) hits in well over 50 percent of simulations.
