The Oregon State Beavers will be facing off against the Florida Gators in this year's Las Vegas Bowl. 

They come into this game as a -8.5 favorite after opening as high as -10.5.  We get a number of 4.57.  This suggests a 4 to 6 point overlay.  The dogs have mostly covered with overlays in this line range, according to Gambling911.com analyses.  Definitely consider Florida at +10.5 if you can get them at that number.  Remember, too, that with the Beavers having covered in their last six, they are due to have a failed cover in this one.

Considerations Before Betting This Game

The Gators (6-6 overall) will be starting third-year sophomore Jack Miller III for the first time as they face No. 14 Oregon State (9-3) on Saturday.

A strong performance in the Las Vegas Bowl could make Miller the favorite for the starting job next fall.

"I think we all would agree that this game, the quarterback position's effect on your team with not only the production part but the leadership part, it's critical," Florida head coach Bill Napier said. "We'll be working hard to address some of the issues at that position."

The Beavers will be seeking only their third 10-win season.

"Our players are excited about the opponent," said Oregon State's Jonathan Smith, the Pacific-12 Conference's co-coach of the year. "Our players are excited to go to Las Vegas. A big-time stadium on the West Coast. I couldn't be looking forward to it more."

The Beavers also will start a backup quarterback.  Ben Gulbranson took over after Chance Nolan suffered a season-ending neck injury Oct. 1.
