2013 Texas Bowl: Minnesota Favored By 4.5 Over Syracuse

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Orange will enter the Texas Bowl as the underdog, as they like it.

The Syracuse Orange will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the 2013 Texas Bowl on Dec. 27. When they do so, they will almost certainly be the underdog.

Via OddsShark, the Gophers opened up as 4.5 favorites over the Orange.

According to the betting experts, that's not good news historically for SU:

This bowl has been dominated by favorites, as the chalk is 8-2-2 ATS past 12 Texas Bowls. Overall, the UNDER is 5-1 past six Texas Bowl games.

The Orange are 6-6 overall but 7-5 when it comes to covering the spread. So, for the moment, they'll be winners in Vegas's eyes if they win or lose by a field goal.
