Free Picks, Predictions for the Old Dominion vs. Tulsa Myrtle Beach Bowl Game December 20

Tulsa is a -9 point favorite in the Myrtle Beach Bowl game versus Old Dominion.  Gambling911.com has the line at -8 but be mindful that Old Dominion ends the season 10-3 Against The Spread with a cover here despite probably going 6-7 Straight Up.  It's with this in mind that we're more likely to see the Golden Hurricane win by more than 10 points.  The oddsmaking cabal will look pretty bad if a 6-7 Old Dominion team ends up covering the spread 10 times in 2021.  That's just not good oddsmaking!


Action is pretty balanced coming into Monday so the line move from -9.5 to -9 doesn't tell us much.

Old Dominion is ending the season strong with five straight victories, pretty much their only victories in 2021.

Tulsa is playing its 23rd bowl game and is 10-12 all-time in the postseason.  And as an away favorite playing in Conway, South Carolina this time around, they are 6-1 Straight Up since 2018.  Old Dominion is 2-12 as an Away Underdog  So get this one teased down 7 points and throw in some other league teams.  You will probably be safe taking them on the spread too.

Despite the ads you might see for Draftkings, Oregon bettors are out of luck as Scoreboard is the official (and only) sportsbook licensed by the state, and they don't allow betting on any college games.  The good news is there are still options.
