TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Prediction - Georgia Tech Vs Kentucky Odds

Bet Gator Bowl PicksVenue: TaxSlayer Bowl Game

When: Saturday, December 31, 2016 - 11 a.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Jacsonville, FL - EverBank Field

Who:Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Kentucky Wildcats

We love it when we see two teams who overachieved playing in bowl games against each other, even if those bowl games are considered to be the relative undercards of the rest of the bowl season. The TaxSlayer Bowl is a perfect example. It's a bowl game played on New Year's Eve morning at 11 a.m. ET, and it comes on a day where the two national semifinals will be played. Yet the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Kentucky Wildcats both made huge strides this season and would love to cap off their season with a win in Jacksonville.

The Ramblin' Wreck have at least been in this type of a spot before. It was just a couple years ago they were playing in the ACC Championship Game, only to ultimately be beaten by Florida State. They didn't go to a bowl last year and are giving Justin Thomas a nice sendoff here in the Sunshine State. Kentucky meanwhile, hasn't won a bowl game since 2008, and you know that Mark Stoops, in a year that he had to start winning to cement his job for 2017, would love nothing more than to end that streak of futility out of one of the traditional SEC doormats.

TaxSlayer 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.

Gator Bowl betting - History and Info

The Gator Bowl, which has made sports betting odds available to its annual event since 1946, features teams from the ACC and the Big East, and many historic battles have taken place over time. The game is one of the oldest non-BCS contests and the tradition of playing in Florida on New Year's Day is something to which every college football team aspires.

The first bowl game was played on Jan. 1, 1946, the Gator Bowl drew only 7,362 fans and it struggled with low attendance figures until the mid-1960s. Since then, however, attendance has been well over 60,000 in most years, with a high of 82,911 for the game in December of 1989.

The Gator Bowl Association has a long memorable tradition and the game has showcased many of college football's biggest names including Heisman Trophy winners George Rogers, Pat Sullivan, Earl Campbell, and John David Crow. Outstanding players such as Dan Marino, Michael Vick, Thurman Thomas, Archie Manning, Larry Csonka, and Peyton Manning are also part of the Gator Bowl Mystique.

The Gator Bowl has also featured many of America's best coaches including Bobby Bowden, Steve Spurrier, and Vince Dooley.

With great teams and players come committed sports betting fans and alumni, charging their way into Jacksonville to cheer and root their team to victory.
