College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six Bowl Predictions

College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six Bowl Predictions

Calculating odds and offering predictions for the New Year’s Six bowl games that begin on Friday night, followed by the College Football Playoffs on Saturday.

From the point of view college football bowl games, we’ve been lucky so far. Most of the games were competitive we had a few this week with the winning score in the last minute.

Friday’s New Year’s Six starts with an intriguing Orange Bowl matchup between Tennessee and Clemson, followed by Saturday afternoon’s Sugar Bowl between Kansas State and Alabama in a College Football Playoff title game.

The New Years Six bowl games will not be played on New Year’s this year and the NFL will be playing this Sunday, so it will take place on Monday.

Either way, the next few days of college football games are going to be great, and here are the predictions for each one against the spread.

We’ll start with the Orange Bowl.

Orange Bowl: No. 7 Clemson (-4.5) vs. No. 6 Tennessee (Dec. 30, 8 p.m. EST, ESPN)

It would have been a more interesting matchup if Hendon Hooker had been able to play, but it’s still an interesting SEC vs. ACC battle.

Tennessee hasn’t reached a major bowl game since the 1999 Fiesta Bowl, and it would be a huge win for Josh Heupel as the Vols look for their 11th win.

Clemson finished 11-2 and won the ACC Championship. It was kind of an underrated storyline because the ACC wasn’t looked upon favorably this year. But a conference championship is a conference championship.

Even more promising is that Cade Strawberry went 20 of 24 for 279 yards and a touchdown in winning the starting job. This will be his chance to truly prove himself on the national stage, and the former five-star QB will take advantage of it.

Tennessee’s defense has struggled against the pass all year. Clemson is missing some players due to opting out early, but I have more confidence in Clemson’s defense than Joe Milton.

Clemson 34, Tennessee 24
