St. Petersburg Bowl Bettors Preview

Bowl Record: Plays- 2-1
Leans- 2-0

8:00 EST- Fla Intl (8-4) (-4) vs. Marshall (6-6) O/U 49- Marshall struggled with two tight wins late to gain bowl eligibility, while Fla Intl had the best record since program inception. That being said, The Thundering Herd clearly played the superior schedule (127 vs 55). These teams had one common opponent in Louisville and both went on the road to beat the mediocre big east squad (what does that tell you about L-Ville and the big east as a whole!). Fla Intl excelled this year with an efficient offense that protected the football beautifully (1 TO per game). They will also be playing just 3 hours from campus and should have tremendous fan support.

Play- Slight lean Fla Intl -4. I'd like to play it but the -4 is too high. My gut says they are a better team and I have no interest in the points with Marshall. If Fla Intl gets down in the first half, look for a potential 2nd half wager, as this team is capable of coming from behind. No lean on the over/under.
