Birmingham Bowl Prediction - Red Raiders Vs. Bulls Football Odds

NCAA Birmingham Bowl Betting Odds and Prediction

When: Saturday, December 23, 12 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Legion Field, Birmingham, AL

Who: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. South Florida Bulls

Apparently, a bowl bid in the Birmingham Bowl is enough to let Kliff Kingsbury keep his job for one more season. These middling 6-6 years aren't generally good enough for coaches in power conferences to keep their jobs, but a rebuilding effort is set to happen in the post-Nic Shimonek era, and Kingsbury is going to be the man to lead the charge.

In fairness to Kingsbury, the Red Raiders pulled out a huge comeback victory in Austin against hated Texas just to get to 6-6. Had that game been lost, Kingsbury surely would have been let gone.

Still, after a 3-0 start to the year, wins were really hard to come by. Kansas and Baylor were given victories, but it was the game against Texas that had to be won when opportunities against the likes of West Virginia, Iowa State and Kansas State were lost.

South Florida was disrespected all year long. The Bulls were always serious contenders for the New Year's Six, and in the end, they might have gotten there had they beaten UCF on Black Friday. Instead, that game was lost, and that effectively ended the hopes of going to a great bowl game.

Charlie Strong did a great job in his first season in Tampa, though. He guided the team to 30+ points in each of the first seven games of the season, helping break the FBS record for consecutive games scoring 30+ before losing to Houston. Still, to go through the whole campaign and suffer just two one-score losses at the hands of the Cougars and Knights is impressive.

Birmingham Bowl Prediction - Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. South Florida Bulls

Opening Line: South Florida -2

Preview: Two high scoring offenses will take the field on Saturday, December 23 in the Birmingham Bowl, as the Texas Tech Red Raiders face the South Florida Bulls. About the only thing that Texas Tech can do under head coach Cliff Kingsbury is score, as they average 34.3 points per game, while the Bulls are even more prolific, as they average 38.3 points per contest. Oddsmakers may have made a mistake on the total for this game, as it opened at 64.5 and has been bet up to 67. Continue...

Who will win the Birmingham Bowl in 2017?

The Birmingham Bowl will host their annual NCAA bowl game on Thursday, December 23, 2017 at 12:00 pm ET at Legion Field in Birmingham, home to the UAB Blazers, and seats nearly 72,000 Sports betting fans.

This bowl game will feature a team from the Big East, SEC or American Conference, and there is also the chance of an at-large team depending on how many bowl-eligible teams emerge from those conferences.

That flexibility has allowed the Birmingham Bowl to draw some pretty strong programs in its short history. The bowl is managed by ESPN Regional Television, an ESPN subsidiary and the sports network has naturally held broadcast rights to the game since its creation.

As far as College football bettors are concerned, the annual Birmingham Bowl matchup looks like a value-packed venture that gridiron gamblers will have a good chance of cashing in against, no matter whether they like backing the Favorite or Underdog.

Birmingham 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.
