Boca Raton Bowl: UCF vs #16 BYU: UNDER/77
BYU has one of the best defenses in the country, as they have allowed their opponents to score less than 20 points in eight out of their eleven games. UCF has a good offense, but they have not faced a defense like this yet. The Cougars only allow 195.7 passing yards per game and 113.8 rushing yards, which ranks 9th in the country in total yards per game. I expect a low scoring game with BYU coming out on top.
Los Angeles Clippers vs Los Angeles Lakers (-3)
The Los Angeles Lakers walked out of the Orlando bubble as NBA Champions a couple months ago. They will be looking to defend their crown and they certainly have the pieces to do so. Lebron James and Anthony Davis return with Marc Gasol, Montrezl Harrell, Dennis Schröder, and Markieff Morris joining the team during the offseason. The Clippers added Serge Ibaka but they did not make many more significant additions. Lebron and company will look to make a statement on opening night, so Lakers -3 is a safe bet.
