Posted by Nila Amerova on 12/18/2012 12:10:43 PM

In one of the more one-sided bowl games in early betting markets, USC vs. Georgia Tech, the Trojans ring in as the hot favorite across the board, but the question is: should bowl predictions be just as one-sided too? Join us as we weigh in on this intriguing matchup that isn’t as straightforward as odds makers are making out to be.


NCAA Football Lines and Odds:

Georgia Tech +10 -110 +310 Over 64 -110 Under 64 -110
USC -10 -110 -370 Over 64 -110 Under 64 -110

Match Time: 2:00 PM EST, Monday December 31, 2012

TV Coverage: ESPN


Georgia Tech (6-7, 5-3 ACC) – Despite owning a losing record on the season, Georgia Tech is going bowling. Go figure. Georgia Tech achieved bowl eligibility when they beat Duke 42-24 but they then subsequently folded to No.3 Georgia and No.13 Florida State. Well, folded is a nice way of putting it. They were thumped by No.3 Georgia 42-10 and held off efficiently by Florida State in a 21-15 defeat. Overall, Georgia Tech is 8-5-0 ATS, which includes 5-3-0 ATS at home and 3-2-0 ATS on the road.

USC (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) – USC finished the season on a two-game skid with back-to-back defeats to ranked opposition – No. 17 UCLA and No. 1 Notre Dame. They lost to UCLA38-28 and to Notre Dame 22-13. In fact, USC took its foot off the pedal in the last five games ever since becoming bowl eligible with a 50-6 win over Colorado they went  1-4 SU. Overall, USC is 3-9-0 ATS, which includes a 3-3-0 ATS at home and a 0-6-0 ATS on the road.

Verdict: The form shown by USC makes one consider that they might be slightly overrated as the -370 faves to win outright. Granted, Georgia Tech, with a losing record on the season, doesn’t inspire a whole lot of confidence either but when USC is so beatable all bets are off, one would think.
