There are massive bowl games coming up and plenty of action that will be exciting and fun outside of the CFP and New Year’s Six games.
After Utah a one-loss Utah Utes team that was ranked No. 1 LSU in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia. According to the college football picks experts at SBR, the Sooners are coming as 13.5-point underdogs. The LSU Tigers were averaging over 50 points per game most of the season and as of now are still at 48 points per game against SEC defenses.
Defensively, they are allowing just 21 points per game. If we look at the Sooners, they are also potent, with Jalen Hurts running the show. So, when you look at the numbers, you might wonder why LSU is favored by nearly two touchdowns when their scoring margin is just seven points – more or less. LSU has smoked some of the best teams in the country.
3 Clemson Tigers will clash with the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes in the Fiesta Bowl over in Tempe, Arizona. I’ll be honest right here and say that I do not believe that Clemson is the No. Sure they might beat No.
4 Oklahoma – but perhaps not– but I don’t think they would have made it through any other Power 5 conference without taking a loss. They simply haven’t played anybody this season and still, they almost lost to UNC. I believe they would be severely tested by Oklahoma, Oregon, Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin, etc. I’ll say it outright, Georgia would beat Clemson. Now they will come in and face Ohio State who has been tested and smashed tough teams that are worthy of big bowl games.
The Clemson Tigers are two-point favorites in this affair, but I don’t see them even winning this game, let alone covering any sort of point spread. Yes, Clemson has a ton of talent to put out on the field but they have not been tested all year and are going to be rattled when they collide with a team that is arguably better than them.
