For the 2015 Holiday Bowl we will have some sparks fly as the sportsbook online betting favorites USC Trojans (-3) will square off against the mighty Wisconsin Badgers on December 30th. Yet considered as underdogs in this encounter, by comparison the Badgers have demonstrated to be a tough and competitive unit. They hold a 9-3 overall record, losing their games only to top ranked teams. Could this be a game that will be an upset or will the Trojans capture another Bowl victory for their illustrious history?
USC has not had a great season, but they were able to sort out many obstacles on their way to the Holiday Bowl. They are coming from a tough loss against Stanford in the Pac-12 championship game, and still trying to find their rhythm. They are hoping to gain some momentum and get going when it matters the most. In their favor they have a fantastic offensive unit that has wowed many sportsbook online betting experts. This Bowl game will place their offense against a very driven and capable Wisconsin top ranked scoring defense. This will definitely be a test of will and determination for both teams.
The Badgers, if they want to derail USC’ hope of a win, they must keep their turn overs to a bare minimum, possibly, down to zero. Who turns over the ball the most and how is the other team able to capitalize on those opportunities will definitely be essential when it comes to tipping the proverbial scale for this game. Their defense is their biggest hope for winning the Holiday Bowl as they must control the Trojans explosive offensive. Sportsbook Online betting odds makers, are thinking that the major downfall for the Badgers will be their inability to properly run the ball on offense, making it hard for their offense to get going. This puts added (unwanted) pressure for their defense.
We are going out on a limb here and calling it right now, there is going to be an upset on this game. When comparing both squads, we get a sense that USC might have more resources than the Badgers, but if anything USC has also shown their weaknesses on games like they had against Stanford. Sportsbook Online betting reviews and US Friendly Sportsbooks will likely keep the Trojans as favorites as game time approaches, this will serve Wisconsin as extra motivation. We think this game is going to be very tight and close, perhaps one of the most exciting Bowl games of the season. Final Score Wisconsin 28 – USC 21.
