Independence Bowl Betting Tips – Warhawks Strike One More Time

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/13/2012 6:09:04 PM

Ohio Bobcats @ Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks – Friday December 28, 2012 2:00PM EST

The betting sites are not paying a whole lot of attention to the Independence Bowl in the weeks leading up to the contest, but they should. This is going to be an interesting matchup between two teams that have both shown that they know how to win games and lose games in dramatic fashion. The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks played four overtime games this season and won three of them. One of those wins was the season-opening win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Warhawks may not always play a perfect brand of football, but the team definitely knows how to make a game exciting.

The Ohio Bobcats has six games decided by 10 points or less, and the Bobcats won five of those games. The thing that the sports betting world is concerned about is that the Bobcats were never in its last two games of the season. In week 11, the Bobcats lost by a score of 52-27 to Ball State. As the season started to roll to an end, Ohio was finding it harder and harder to stay in games. The time off before the Independence Bowl can only help the Bobcats as they prepare to take on a Warhawks team that does not know how to quit.

Why Louisiana-Monroe Will Win

The football betting experts that follow the Independence Bowl are expecting an exciting game this year, mostly because of the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. When the Warhawks won its opening game against the Razorbacks, the entire country started to take notice. But as soon as Louisiana-Monroe racked up two consecutive losses to ranked teams in the next two weeks, the interest faded. But this is a good football team that has a lot of good pieces in place. For the Warhawks, the game is not done until the final whistle. It is that mentality which will serve the team well in this game.

Why Ohio Will Win

Ohio started the season off with seven consecutive wins. The formula for winning the Independence Bowl would be to channel whatever the team was doing in the early portion of the season and then use that in this game. It is not as easy as it sounds. In its last five games of the season, the Bobcats went 1-4. The team wants to end the season the same way it started the season – winning. That is why the Independence Bowl is so important to Ohio.

The Bottom Line

The Warhawks seemed to gain momentum as the season went on while the Bobcats seemed to lose momentum. That may not seem like a huge deal in a bowl game like this, but it can be extremely important. The Warhawks will carry its momentum into this game and come out with a bowl win over the Ohio Bobcats.

Pick: Louisiana-Monroe
