College Football DFS: Dec. 30 Bowl Slate

College Football DFS: Dec. 30 Bowl Slate

This article is part of our DFS College Football series.

As we continue on in Bowl Season hoping to avoid more cancelations, Thursday's slate is a four-gamer (for now) that should feature some high-scoring contests and others that are not so much. Headlining the day is the Purdue-Tennessee contest that features an expected total of 64.5 on the day, clearing all other games by at least a touchdown. North Carolina-South Carolina (main slate on FD and single game on DK) is next at 57.5 and Michigan State-Pitt follows close behind at 56.0. Then we have the defensive battle of the slate featuring Arizona State-Wisconsin to (41.0) to cap off the night. The expected totals also vary by the sportsbook, but Tennessee and North Carolina lead the way, with Purdue and Michigan State both checking in third and four on both Draftkings and FanDuel.

There should be no weather concerns for any of the bowls on the schedule Thursday.
