TaxSlayer Bowl Prediction - Louisville vs Mississippi State  Odds


When: Saturday, December 30, 2017 - 12 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Jacsonville, FL - EverBank Field

Who: Louisville Cardinals vs Mississippi State Bulldogs

The TaxSlayer Bowl might be the sexiest of all of the non-New Year's Six bowl games this year due to the fact that Nick Fitzgerald and Lamar Jackson are both playing in the game. These are two of the most exciting quarterbacks in college football with both their arm and their legs, and that could make for an exciting game.

Mississippi State finished the season ranked in the Top 25 thanks to the fact that it plays in the SEC. The team does have some nice wins over LSU, Kentucky and Texas A&M, but aside from that, the schedule really wasn't much. Had the Bulldogs beaten Alabama when they were up in the fourth quarter, we would have had a much different feeling about the entire season.

As it is, Dan Mullen's crew should be proud, though obviously, the Bulldogs are going forward without their leader after he left Starkville for the Florida job vacated by Jim McElwain.

Louisville had the hype of a National Championship team this season, but the hopes for that came to a screeching halt early in the year. The Cardinals were out of the ACC race by October 5 when they were saddled with their second loss in division against N.C. State on a Thursday night.

The next week, the team was beaten by Boston College, and that was followed up by another defeat against Wake Forest.

The Cards did finish out the year with wins over Virginia, Syracuse and Kentucky, but 8-4 feels disappointing in a season with so much promise.

Mullen will leave Starkville having taken the Bulldogs to eight straight bowl games. The Dogs have won three straight non-New Year's Six games, including last year's St. Petersburg Bowl.

Louisville is playing in a bowl game for the eight straight season. Last year, Jackson's Heisman Trophy campaign was spoiled just a bit by LSU in the Citrus Bowl.

Gator Bowl Game Prediction - Louisville Cardinals vs Mississippi State Bulldogs

Opening Line: Louisville -5

Preview: The Louisville Cardinals are unranked, but they are favored in the TaxSlayer Bowl against the No. 23 Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday, December 30 on ESPN. Not only do the Cardinals have last year’s Heisman winner Lamar Jackson, but Mississippi State will be without head coach Dan Mullen who left for Florida and without star quarterback Nick Fitzgerald. The Bulldogs will also be without their defensive coordinator. Bettors have been all over the Cardinals since this line came out, as the Cardinals opened as a 5-point favorite and now the Cardinals are laying 6.5-points. Continue...

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.
