The 2020-21 college football bowl schedule features two Power Five matchups and four major programs should generate a lot of college football betting action on Wednesday. The day begins with Wisconsin vs. Wake Forest at the 2020 Duke’s Mayo Bowl at 12 p.m. ET and then at 8 p.m. ET it will be Oklahoma vs. Florida in the 2020 Cotton Bowl to kick off the New Year’s Six bowl slate. Both games feature high-octane offenses against some of the best defenses in their respective leagues.
The Badgers are 9.5-point favorites over the Demon Deacons with the over-under for total points listed at 51.5 in the college football bowl odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Meanwhile, the Sooners are now 5.5-point favorites after opening up as 2.5-point underdogs to the Gators and the total is at 67.5 in the latest college football lines.

Top college football expert predictions for Dec. 30 bowl games
One of Sallee’s top college football picks for bowl action on Dec. 30: He is backing the under 51.5 as the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Wednesday in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
The Wisconsin offense was an enormous letdown for the Badgers in a season where they hoped to contend for a Big Ten title and a College Football Playoff berth. The Badgers averaged just 22.7 points per game and managed just 6.2 yards per pass attempt as a team. However, the defense was still one of the best in the nation, allowing just 15.7 points (sixth in the nation) and 263.5 yards per game.
On the other side, Wake Forest struggled to run the football throughout the year despite averaging 37.0 points per game (19th nationally). The Demon Deacons averaged just 3.9 yards per rush for the season and they’ll have a hard time handling the Wisconsin defense if they’re one-dimensional on Wednesday.
“It’s hard to trust Wisconsin’s offense and Wake Forest padded its offensive stats against bad defenses in 2020,” Sallee said. “The under has hit in four of six Wisconsin games and the weather is supposed to be chilly in Charlotte on Wednesday. This one will be an old-school, sloppy affair.”
