College Football Betting – BCS Bowl Outlook

NCAA Football PicksCollege football betting players are getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year: It is bowl season, and the competitors have been announced for all of the bowls, including the BCS bowls. Here is a look at the top five bowls everyone will be watching.

Wisconsin TCU Betting – Saturday, January 1st, 5:00 PM ET

The No.3 Horned Frogs (BCS bid) are 2.5-point favorites in the “Granddaddy of Them All”, also known as the Rose Bowl. TCU is making their second straight BCS appearance, while the No.5 Badgers (Big Ten champions) are in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 2000. These two have never met before, and it’ll be a matchup of Wisconsin’s No.12 rushing attack against TCU’s No.3 rush defense.

Connecticut Oklahoma Betting – Saturday, January 1st, 8:30 PM ET

The No.7 Sooners (Big 12 champions) are 17-point football betting favorites in the Fiesta Bowl, where they have lost their last two appearances as big favorites. The Huskies (Big East champions) are making their first BCS appearance and fourth straight bowl game in a row, and they’re going up against the Sooners for the first time. Oklahoma is 17th in points scored, while UConn is 23rd in scoring defense.

Stanford Virginia Tech Betting – Monday, January 3rd, 8:30 PM ET

The No.4 Cardinal (BCS bid) are favored by a field goal in the Orange Bowl, and they’re making their first BCS appearance since 2000, when they lost to Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. The No.13 Hokies (ACC champions) are back in the BCS after a one-year absence, and they’ve won 11 straight games after a poor start. Both teams are ranked in the top five in terms of turnover margin, so expect them to take care of the ball.

Ohio State Arkansas Betting – Tuesday, January 4th, 8:30 PM ET

The No.6 Buckeyes (BCS bid) are field-goal favorites in the Sugar Bowl, and this is their sixth straight BCS appearance, finally winning last year against Oregon in the Rose Bowl after three losses in a row. The No.8 Razorbacks (BCS bid) are making their BCS debut, and they’ll pit quarterback Ryan Mallett against OSU’s Terrelle Pryor in a matchup of future NFL picks.

Oregon Auburn Betting – Monday, January 10th, 8:30 PM ET

The No.1 Tigers (SEC champions) are 3-point favorites in the BCS title game, led by probably Heisman favorite Cam Newton. The No.2 Ducks (Pac-10 champions) are powered by LaMichael James, who may end up with the Heisman if voters stay away from Newton. This could end up being a shootout as both are ranked in the top 10 in scoring offense, so the over could be very enticing for betting players.
