NCAA Liberty Bowl Prediction - Iowa State vs Memphis Football Odds

NCAA-Football-Liberty-Bowl-Betting-Odds

When: Friday, December 30, 2017 - 12:30pm ET / ABC

Where: Memphis, Tenn. - Memorial Stadium

Who: Iowa State Cyclones vs Memphis Tigers

For as great of a chance as the AAC has to prove itself in the Peach Bowl with UCF, winning the Liberty Bowl would be a huge boost, too. Memphis gets to play this game at home, and that's why it's favored. If the AAC wants to prove that it really should be the "Power 6" as it so often touted this year, this is a game that should be won.

The Tigers already have one win this year against a big boy team, beating UCLA here at the Liberty Bowl back in September. Memphis didn't lose another game this year outside of the two affairs with UCF, the second of which came in the AAC Championship Game.

Motivation could be a factor knowing that the Tigers would have been in the Peach Bowl had they beaten UCF in a game decided in two overtimes.

Iowa State claimed the most notable upset of the season when it took care of business against Oklahoma as a 31-point underdog. It's the game that put Matt Campbell on the map for the moment, and though Campbell doesn't seem poised to leave Ames quite yet, an upset in this game to finish off an eight-win season could go a long way towards landing him a huge job.

The Cyclones didn't just upset Oklahoma, though. The team also beat Texas Tech as a seven-point pup and TCU when getting 7.5. West Virginia, Oklahoma State and Kansas State were all lost games, but the Cyclones covered all three because of the fact that they were all games decided by a single score.

Memphis has only won one bowl game since 2005, that coming in the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl.

Iowa State's last bowl appearance was the 2012 Liberty Bowl. The last time the Cyclones won a bowl game was the 2009 Insight Bowl.

NCAA Liberty Bowl Prediction - Iowa State Cyclones vs Memphis Tigers

Preview: The No. 20 Memphis Tigers are favored against the Iowa State Cyclones in the Liberty Bowl on Saturday, December 30 on ABC. The Tigers come into this game at 10-2, while the Cyclones are 7-5. The Tigers are favored in this contest, but you should be aware that the Cyclones were a great team against the spread this season, going 10-1-1. Memphis is all about offense and no defense, while Iowa State is all defense and some offense, so this is an interesting matchup. Continue...

Liberty 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.

Liberty Bowl Trophy

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl Trophy produced by Schulmerich is an authentic, one-quarter-sized replica of the bell that rang in Independence Hall to announce the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

It has the same nicked edges, foundry marks, misspelled inscription and even the famous crack—all crafted to maintain the integrity of the Bell in every detail.

Cast in traditional black bronze, the bell measures 12 inches in diameter and 11-1/2 inches high with crown.

It is bolted to a handmade wooden yoke and swings on legs cast with the filigree design that appears on the original mounting.

Liberty Bowl History

Played every December since 1959, The Liberty Bowl was played first in Philadelphia - hence the Liberty Title - but proved too cold for the (approx) 8000 fans in attendance.

It was moved indoors at Convention Hall in Atlantic City, and has since moved to Memphis, calling it home since 1965.

In the 80s, the winner of the commander in Chiefs Trophy received an automatic invite to play the Liberty Bowl.

Since 1997, the season champ of Conference USA has served as the host team. And since the start of the 2006 College football season, the Liberty Bowl will match teams from Conference USA and the Southeastern Conference.

2013 Liberty Bowl Football Champions

The sophomore quarterback Dak Prescott delivered a performance that would have made his mother proud.

Prescott threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores Tuesday as Mississippi State trounced Rice 44-7 in the most one-sided AutoZone Liberty Bowl victory in the game's 55-year history.

Mississippi State (7-6) wrapped up its fourth straight winning season and prevented Rice (10-4) from winning bowl games in back-to-back years for the first time. All of Mississippi State's losses this season came against teams currently in the Top 25: No. 13 Oklahoma State, No. 2 Auburn, No. 14 LSU, No. 8 South Carolina, No. 20 Texas A&M and No. 3 Alabama.
