One of Sallee’s top college football picks for bowl action on Wednesday: He’s backing the under (60) to hit in the 2021 Alamo Bowl matchup between No. 16 Oklahoma and No. 14 Oregon.
These teams were both playoff contenders until late in the season, but a lot has changed in just a few weeks. Lincoln Riley left Oklahoma for USC, while Mario Cristobal moved from Oregon to Miami (Fla.). That leaves both teams with an interim head coach.
Transfers, opt outs and some reported COVID-19 concerns for Oregon could all contribute to this being a sloppy matchup as well. Sallee looked at the trends and the rosters for these two teams and sees a game that will struggle to hit the 60-point plateau.
“Both of these teams are transitioning to new coaches, which means you might see some sloppiness and some auditions throughout the game,” Sallee told SportsLine. “What’s more, the under has hit in the majority of the games for both teams, and a 60-point total seems a bit aggressive for a game that should be sloppier than advertised.”
