NCAA Monday Cash-In: Hyundai Sun Bowl

Wild On Sports

Hyundai Sun Bowl
Georgia Tech (6-7 SU, 8-5 ATS) vs. USC (7-5 SU, 3-9 ATS)
Line: USC -7, O/U 61

USC came into the season as the team everyone thought would be playing in the BCS title game. They had the pre-season favorite for the Heisman Trophy in Matt Barkley and a WR in Marqise Lee who many believed to be a first round talent. After winning 6 of their first 7 games the wheels feel off and the season quickly went down hill losing 4 of their last 5.  QB Matt Barkley was injured, missed time and will miss this game. He is replaced by highly touted freshman Matt Wittek. Georgia Tech comes into the game as the only bowl team with a losing record. They petitioned the NCAA for bowl eligibility due to two in conference teams that are on probation and ineligible for postseason play. They run the triple option which is a very interesting offense and one that has produced a lot of points for them this season. Unfortunately, as good as the offense is (34.5ppg), the defense is equally bad (29.9ppg). USC scores an average of 34.2 points per game while giving up 24.6.

Even with Barkley out and Wittek in at QB, this has all the makings of a shootout. The point line has fallen from 66 to 61 largely due to the absence of Barkley. Its time to jump on board before it starts to go the other way!
