Celebration Bowl – North Carolina Central Eagles (9-2) vs Grambling State Tigers (11-1)
The College Football bowl season kicks off with the second annual Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl. Even though the game may not be on your personal radar, the game is available to bet on the Vegas lines, and could be very exciting.
Both teams come in undefeated about FCS opponents on the season. North Carolina State suffered two blow out loses at the beginning of the season, 49-6 at Wake Forrest and 70-21 at Western Michigan respectively.
The lone blemish on the Tigers season was a 31-21 season opening road loss to the Arizona Wildcats.
The MEAC and SWAC do not compete in the FCS playoffs, so the Celebration bowl is the ultimate goal for the season. Both teams represent conferences that that receive very little national attention and this game will allow both teams to showcase their talents in the national spotlight with an afternoon kickoff at the Georgia Dome on ABC.
The Grambling State Tigers had a dominate season in the SWAC, leading the conference in scoring, rushing and passing years per game on both offense and defense.
This game should be exciting. At the moment I am not personally advising any personal bets because the Vegas lines are almost right online with my prediction.
Grambling State -14.5
Over/ Under 55
My prediction: Grambling State 35 N.C Central 23
