LSU Vs. UCF Predictions – Fiesta Bowl Betting Odds
The UCF Knights have been undefeated for two entire seasons, and they haven’t gotten any real respect from the national audience. They could in part gain some if they beat the LSU Tigers on Tuesday as part of the 2018 PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. LSU is at 7.5-point favorite at MyBookie.ag to no one surprise. The betting line actually opened with the Tigers favorite by eight points, but it moved down a little. 52% of the betting public is taking LSU to cover the spread. The game total is currently at 55.5 points.
LSU Tigers Vs. UCF Knights Fiesta Bowl Predictions
UCF warned everybody last season to not taken them lightly. They beat Auburn soundly in their bowl matchup. This is the same scenario. The Knights are undefeated facing another SEC heavyweight. What makes it different in my eyes is UCF was so much more talented last season. In 2018, they didn’t play but one ranked team, and it was Cincinnati late in the season. The Knights are also adjusting to playing without All-American quarterback McKenzie Milton. He suffered a nasty injury against South Florida in the last game of the regular season.
They did beat Memphis coming from behind in the Conference title, but that’s not even close to the challenge they will face against LSU. The Tigers might have an unimpressive vanilla offense, but their defense is rock solid. That’s the reason many thought they had a chance against Alabama. LSU will miss some players that are definitely going to the NFL draft, but there is still plenty of talent to spare on the defensive side. I find it hard to put my money on a backup quarterback only playing his second game of the season. Especially when in front of him is one of the best defenses in the SEC. LSU defensive approach I’m sure will be to blitz the young backup QB Darriel Mack Jr. a lot and force plenty of mistakes. What’s the play? LSU -7.5
