Predictions For Betting On Beef O Brady St Petersburg Bowl – UCF Looks To Wrap Up Season With Bowl Win Over Ball State In Beef O’Brady St. Petersburg

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/6/2012 5:53:46 PM

In what could be one of the most underappreciated bowl games of the sports betting season, the Central Florida Knights will look to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss to Tulsa in the Conference USA title game when they clash with the Ball State Cardinals in this year’s St. Petersburg Bowl. Central Florida rode a six-game win streak and won seven of its final eight games to clinch its spot in this contest, while Ball State finished the year with six-straight wins to take the at-large spot granted to the Big East when it could not fill its guaranteed spot.

College Football Betting Line: UCF – 8

This will be just the fourth meeting between these schools all-time, with all three prior meetings taking place back when UFC was a member of the MAC from 2002-04. The Knights suffered some tough defeats this season including near misses against Missouri and Tulsa, but can finish on a high note with a bowl victory.

Two close losses to Tulsa prevented Central Florida from completing a perfect C-USA sweep, as they dropped a 23-21 decision in the first meeting before losing the conference title game in overtime. Rebounding from that latest emotional loss shouldn’t be difficult for a team that averaged 35.2 points per game this season, with senior running back Latavius Murray leading the way with 1,035 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Murray has provided the spark the Knights’ offense has needed this season, and will be key to UCF securing just its second Bowl win in program history.

The Cardinals meanwhile are looking for their first Bowl win in program history, after losing each of their first five postseason games. Ball State should have the advantage moving the ball through the air with junior quarterback Keith Wenning coming off a 2,878-yard, 22-touchdown season, and he will need to come up big in order to keep them in it. Sophomore running back Jahwhan Edwards rushed for 1,321 yards and 14 touchdowns of his own this season, and the impact of his performance on the team’s success is illustrated by the fact that Edwards was held to under 70 yards rushing in each of the team’s three losses this season.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the Knights have the advantage on defense, Wenning and Edwards could have a major impact on this game if they can perform to the their potential. Whether or not they can do enough to deliver Ball State its first postseason win all-time is a major online betting question mark, but they should be able to do enough to at least keep this one close.
