Clemson -4.5 (-110) vs. Kentucky +4.5 (-110)

Clemson came from being 4-4 and looking to be a potential laughing stock to winning their last four games with wins over North Carolina and Notre Dame. Quarterback Cade Klubnik has looked to take a step forward at the end of his first year as a starter.

Kentucky isn’t a juggernaut, and the offense will rely heavily on Ray Davis to take them to the next level. Clemson’s defense will stymie the Wildcats attack and give them a touchdown-plus victory.

Bet: Clemson -4.5 (-110)

Missouri +3.5 (-108) vs. Ohio State -3.5 (-112)

This was one of the more intriguing matchups on the bowl slate. Still, it’s been highlighted by the Buckeyes losing quarterback Kyle McCord and wide receiver Julian Flemming to the transfer portal.

The thing that will matter the most is the offense of Missouri. Brady Cook has taken a major leap forward thanks to Luther Burden on the outside and Cody Schrader in the backfield. That offense is going to take over and beat the Buckeyes handily.

Bet: Missouri +3.5 (-108)

Georgia -20 (-110) vs. Florida State +20 (-110)

Georgia has had many players enter the transfer portal, but most of them were backups. Florida State had several players enter the portal or the NFL draft, but a surprising one was backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker.

That leaves true freshman Brock Glenn as the starter. Things will likely be more comfortable for Glenn than they were in the ACC Championship Game, but it’s against Georgia now. This could be a bloodbath of epic proportions.

Bet: Georgia -20 (-110)

Toledo +3.5 (-110) vs. Wyoming -3.5 (-110)

This one has been made relatively easy due to the transfer portal. Toledo lost their two best offensive players, Dequan Finn and Peny Boone, to the transfer portal.

Finn has already committed to Baylor and won’t play in this game, but Boone could play as he entered the portal right after Christmas.

Either way, it will not be easy against a Wyoming team with a stout defense playing for their head coach in his last game before retirement.

Bet: Wyoming -3.5 (-110)
