2014 Miami Bowl Prediction

To kick off the 2014 Bowl Season I am sending out my first free pick which features both a spread play and a play on the total. My 2014 Miami Bowl Prediction is as follows:

12/22/2014 2:00 PM Reduced Football 212 Memphis* -2 -105  vs BYU
Risking 2.00 To Win 1.90 – Best Line at 5Dimes

12/22/2014 2:00 PM Reduced Football 211 BYU/Memphis* Under 56 -102
Risking 1.00 To Win 0.98 – Best Line at 5Dimes

We have an early bowl game on today, the 2014 Miami Bowl starting at 2PM EST.

For my 2014 Miami Bowl Prediction I am taking the Memphis Tigers -2 over the BYU Cougars.
For me this one comes down to who has the healthier team, and its clearly Memphis.
BYU has been just decimated with injuries this year, losing their starting QB Taysom Hill back in October and their starting running back Jamaal Williams in November. They managed to recover and end the season on a 4 game win streak as replacement QB Christian Stewart did a solid backup job to close out the season.Looking at Memphis, they come into this game on a 6 game win streak. QB Paxton Lynch has been a consistent dual-threat, throwing for 18 TDs and adding another 10 rushing.
To complement their offense, the defense has played very solid down the stretch, they are allowing only 17.1 points per game and they only allowed 20 points to USF and Tulsa over their final 6 games of the season, the rest were held to 13 or fewer points.
My Miami Bowl Prediction is that the game should feature some strong defense, BYU will match up well against the Memphis run, so I expect a few big plays to be the deciding factor in this one.
Memphis just has more options on offense and I think it will make the difference and lead them to a 27-16 type win in this one. Play Memphis and lean on the under.
