The Peach Bowl is one of the many NCAA college football bowl games that'll be taking place this month. This year's matchup contains two of the top teams in the nation as the No. 12 Pittsburgh Panthers take on the No. 10 Michigan State Spartans.

FanDuel Sportsbook has listed Michigan State as a slight 1.5-point favorite, with -110 odds to cover. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh also has -110 odds to cover the spread.

The moneyline also shows how close oddsmakers expect this game to be. Both the Panthers and Spartans have -110 moneyline odds.

This will be Pittsburgh's first-ever Peach Bowl appearance. The Panthers will be riding a momentum wave following their 45-21 victory over Wake Forest in this season's ACC Championship game.

It's also Michigan State's first Peach Bowl appearance as well. While the Spartans did go 10-2 on the season, they've also lost two of their last four games. A victory over the Panthers would certainly end the year on a strong note.

Michigan State is 6-0-1 in seven all-time head-to-head matchups against Pittsburgh. Their last meeting took place on Sept. 15, 2009, resulting in a 17-13 Spartans win.

The 2021 Peach Bowl will be played at 7 p.m. EST on Thursday, Dec. 30 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
