Dollar General Bowl Prediction - Ohio Vs Troy Football Odds

Dollar General BowlVenue: Dollar General Bowl ( Formely known as Bowl )

When: Friday, December 23, 2016 - 8:00pm ET / ESPN

Where: Ladd-Peebles Stadium Mobile, AL

Who: Ohio Bobcats Vs. Troy Trojans

Notable MVPs: Byron Leftwich, Ben Roethlisberger, Omar Jacobs, Bruce Gradkowski

We're never fans of bowl games that feature teams playing in their home stadium, but that's what we have in the 2016 Dollar General Bowl. Ladd-Peebles Stadium is the home of the Troy Trojans, and they won't mind not having to foot the bill to travel anywhere for their December showdown with the Ohio Bobcats.

The matchup itself in Mobile should be interesting and entertaining, to say the least. These two teams both have elite defenses in the mid-major levels, and though both have ground games that can do a lot of damage, they're both up against rush defenses that held teams under 4.0 yards per carry this season. Of course, bowl games with the lowest totals sometimes come up with the highest, oddest looking final scores, but surely, it's hard to justify that in the Dollar General Bowl this year if you're handicapping the game.

Dollar General Bowl Betting Tips

One of the first things to look for when examining the college football bowl odds is the current form of the teams. Some teams are coming into the bowl game playing very well, while others are coming in flat or disappointed.

Motivation is a big key factor when it comes to looking at college football bowl betting lines, we also have to look at other things.

Schedule strength, turnovers, recent form, and overall team power ratings are things to consider as the bowl games begin. You also want to take the individual game odds into consideration.

GMAC Bowl History

Established in 1999 by the City of Mobile, Alabama, this was originally known as the Mobile Bowl. GMAC took over sponsorship in 2001 and renamed it. In 2014 GMAC last it's sponsorship and took it over as the formal sponsor, not shortly after in 2016 Dollor General bcame the new bowl sponsor.

The first game played between teams representing different colleges or universities was played on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers University and Princeton University, at College Field (now the site of the College Avenue Gymnasium), New Brunswick, New Jersey. Rutgers won, by a score of 6 to 4. As the score would indicate, the game bore little resemblance to the game of today.

The rules of that game were the 1863 rules of the English Football Association, the basis of the modern form of soccer. bowl game that has been played annually at 40,646-seat Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama Mobile is a city located in Mobile County, Alabama. As of the 2000 census, the population of the city is 198,915.

Mobile is the center of Alabama's Second Largest Metropolitan Area (which consists of Mobile and Baldwin Counties) and Metropolitan Mobile has a population of 551,178. Its name derived from the presence of the Mobile (Mauvile or Maubila) Indians in the area at the time of founding. (See Mobilian.) The city is the county seat of Mobile County, since 1999.

It pits teams from the Mid-American Conference. The Mid-American Conference is a College Athletic Conference whose members are located mainly in the Mid United States; nine of the schools are in Ohio and Michigan alone. The conference participates in the NCAA's Division I-A.

Ladd-Peebles Stadium

The combination of long experience and successful history of Ladd-Peebles Stadium, joined with the excitement and talent of major college football is a tremendous asset to Mobile and the Gulf Coast region. Ladd-Peebles Stadium has been the centerpiece of sports in Mobile since 1948. It all began on October 2, 1948 when the University of Alabama battled Vanderbilt to a 14-14 tie.

First known as Ernest F. Ladd Memorial Stadium, the stadium was originally financed by local interests and without public tax money. The project was a joint effort by civic leaders and public officials. Chairman of the undertaking was J. Finley McRae, President of Merchants National Bank. His vision was to build the Stadium as a permanent memorial to his mentor, Ernest F. Ladd. Mr. Ladd was his predecessor as Bank President and had passed away in 1941.

In 1997 the stadium was renamed Ladd-Peebles Stadium to honor E. B. Peebles, Jr. Mr. Peebles is a civic leader credited with revitalizing the Senior Bowl. Since the Alabama-Vanderbilt game over 50 years ago, Ladd-Peebles Stadium has been the home to Mobile's major outdoor events. National celebrities such as Ed Sullivan and Mobile-native Jimmy Buffet have performed in front of thousands inside the stadium while festivals, high school graduations, marching band expositions, circuses, car shows, boxing matches and concerts have all taken place on the grounds. In 1999 the stadium began to host a NCAA sanctioned Bowl game.

Now known as the GMAC Bowl, it features teams from Conference USA and the Mid American Conference. It has rapidly risen to national prominence and in 2004 was the 6th rated Bowl according to Fox Sports. In 2004 the stadium became the new home of the Pioneer Bowl. The game was founded in 1998 and features teams from the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
