Independence Bowl betting odds: Miami Hurricanes open as favorite against South Carolina Gamecocks

'Canes favored by three.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

According to Vegas Insider, betting odds for the South Carolina Gamecocks' bowl matchup with the Miami Hurricanes of the ACC favor Miami. The 'Canes are currently favored by three points.

If I were a betting man, I wouldn't like this game at all. Miami was 5-7 ATS on the year while the Gamecocks were 4-8. Both teams made it a habit of not showing up when they were expected to win but playing a bit over their heads in games where blowouts were expected to materialize. When two thoroughly inconsistent teams get together, who knows what will happen?
