This total continues to drop, with both teams missing players as a result of the transfer portal. I still think this is too low for a bowl game. Bet online the over as Notre Dame team still has plenty of talent to score points in this matchup.

Spread Pick: Notre Dame -6½

Not only is Oregon State missing its top players thanks to the portal, but the team’s coaching staff is now at Michigan State. Oregon State is missing its top two quarterbacks, with QB D.J. Uiagalelei and Aidan Chiles both looking to transfer.

Beavers redshirt sophomore Ben Gulbranson will start for the Beavers at quarterback. Notre Dame’s QB1 Sam Hartman will not be suiting up. Steve Angeli will start at quarterback for the Irish.

Overall, Notre Dame’s deeper roster is more built to withstand the transfer portal departures. With the Beavers’ coaching staff also gone, the Fighting Irish is the right side at the sportsbook.

Moneyline Pick: Notre Dame Wins Sun Bowl (-225)

Again, we’re going with the deeper team in a game decimated by the portal.

Best Sun Bowl Prop Bet: First Score of Game Is a Touchdown – No (+169)

With both of these teams starting reserve players in key spots, we are likely to see a slow start to the game. Look for the first score of the game to be a field goal.
