2011-2012 BOWL Game Best Bets + BOWL GAME OF THE YEAR

Who's Hot, Who's Not

December 13, 2011

There are plenty of factors to consider when handicapping the college football bowl season, especially when you look at particular matchup. Analyzing a non-conference matchup isn’t easy in September yet alone December or January. So how do you find a mismatch? Looking at the current form of a school is a nice way to start. Below is a list of bowls that have are either streaking or slumping into the postseason.

On a Roll

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl – Saturday, Dec. 17

Utah State (7-5 straight up, 6-5 against the spread) owns an all-time bowl record of 1-4 and hasn’t been to a postseason game since the 1997 Humanitarian Bowl, which it lost to Cincinnati (19-35). Perhaps things will change this year. The Aggies have closed the season with five straight wins, three coming on the road too. Utah State is listed as a short favorite (2 ½) but earning its second bowl victory won’t be easy against a decent Ohio (9-4 SU, 7-5 ATS squad. The Bobcats had a five-game winning streak intact before they lost to Northern Illinois (20-23) in the MAC Championship.

Poinsettia Bowl – Wednesday, Dec. 21

Gamblers will have a tough decision in this battle from San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium. Louisiana Tech (8-4 SU, 10-1 ATS) and TCU (10-2 SU, 5-6 ATS) both enter this game with identical seven-game winning streaks. Even knowing that fact, the Horned Frogs have been listed as 10 ½-point favorites on the neutral field. TCU is 3-1 in its last four bowl games under Gary Patterson, but only 1-3 ATS and the largest margin was seven points. Make a note that the Bulldogs were 5-2 SU and 7-0 ATS on the road this season, and the two losses came against quality foes in Southern Miss (17-19) and Mississippi State (20-26 OT).

Alamo Bowl – Thursday, Dec. 29

Robert Griffin and Baylor (9-3 SU, 7-4 ATS) will look to build on their five-game winning streak (4-1 ATS) this postseason when it battles Washington (7-5 SU, 7-4 ATS). The Bears haven’t won a bowl game since 1992 and this will be a home game for them, with Waco just a few hours north of San Antonio. Most books have Baylor listed as a nine-point favorite.

Rose Bowl, Monday Jan. 2

It’s kind of amazing that Wisconsin (11-2 SU, 6-6 ATS) is getting six points against Oregon (11-2 SU, 6-5 ATS) in its bowl game. The Badgers closed the season with five straight wins, four by double digits and their two losses came by a combined 10 points on heartbreaking plays. Oregon is no slouch but it hasn’t won a bowl game under head coach Chip Kelly.

GoDaddy.com Bowl – Sunday, Jan. 8

This particular bowl doesn’t boast big programs but you do have a pair of hot teams squaring off. Arkansas State (10-2 SU, 9-2 ATS) started the season 1-2 but closed with nine straight wins. Meanwhile, Northern Illinois (10-3 SU, 5-7 ATS) was also shaky (2-3) in the first five weeks but the Huskies ended the season with eight consecutive games, including its MAC Championship win over Ohio (23-20). The oddsmakers are expecting a tight game as well, with the Red Wolves listed as one-point favorites.

BCS Championship – Monday, Jan. 9

The rematch between LSU (13-0 SU, 10-2 ATS) and Alabama (11-1 SU, 8-3 ATS) needs no introduction. The Tigers have the longest winning streak in the nation at 13 and almost half of them came on the road. LSU has gone 6-0 both SU and ATS outside of Baton Rouge, but Alabama’s road mark (5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS) isn’t too shabby either.

Why Bother Playing?

The bowls listed below will have teams that are slumping into their bowl games and not surprisingly, all three of them will have new coaches as well next season.

Maaco Bowl – Thursday, Dec. 22

At one point this season, Arizona State (6-6 SU, 4-7 ATS) had positioned itself for a spot in the Pac 12 Championship. The Sun Devils then dropped five of their last six, including their final four games. The school fired Dennis Erickson as head coach, yet he’ll still be on the sidelines when ASU meets No. 8 Boise State (11-1 SU, 4-8 ATS) in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Sun Devils only went to one bowl under Erickson and they lost by 18 to Texas (34-52). The Broncos are currently listed as 14-point favorites, which is the highest number amongst all the bowls.

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl – Saturday, Dec. 31

New Year’s Eve college bowl slate will have five games on tap and this is probably the one you shouldn’t bet on. Despite closing the season with six straight setbacks, Illinois (6-6 SU, 4-7 ATS) is listed as a 2 ½-point favorite in its bowl game. Why? Because the opponent is UCLA (6-7 SU, 5-8 ATS), who actually showed some fight against Oregon (31-49) in the Pac 12 title game. What’s even more comical is that both teams fired their head coaches, Ron Zook and Rick Neuheisel, and will use interims for this bowl.

Gator Bowl – Monday, Jan. 2

Most of the talk on this contest will be centered on former Florida coach and new Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes (6-6 SU, 6-6 ATS) will be led by interim head coach Luke Fickell, who will be hoping to snap a three-game losing skid when they meet Florida (6-6 SU, 3-7 ATS) from Jacksonville. Even though Ohio State is in a bit of a slump, all three of its recent losses came by a combined 15 points. Florida defeated Ohio State 41-14 in the 2006-07 BCS Championship game. Most books have the Gators listed as two-point favorites over the Buckeyes in the rematch.

BCS Matchups & Odds posted

December 5, 2011

John Avello at the Wynn Las Vegas wasted little time in opening up his BCS bowl odds Sunday. As soon as the announcement of the matchup was made official, the Wynn had the lines up within five minutes. It shouldn’t come much of a surprise that Avello and the Wynn were the first because they’ve been the first in the world all season long putting up college football lines.
They already had LSU up as a two-point favorite over Alabama in the BCS Championship game for over a week so there wasn't a mystery with the line, but a couple of the other games did raise some eye-brows, not only with the odds but the actual matchups.

Two teams that likely shouldn’t have been BCS-bowl bound, Virginia Tech and Michigan, are playing each other in the Sugar Bowl with the reason being simply because their alumni travel well. Does Virginia Tech really deserve a shot at playing on this stage after getting pounded twice this season by a questionable Clemson squad?

The ACC is just a notch -- a small notch -- above the Big East. Meanwhile we have Kansas State (10-2) coming from the strongest strength of schedule conference and ranked No. 8, three positions higher than the Hokies and seven higher than Clemson, getting left out because they’re not a strong traveling school.

You can throw Michigan into that group as well, but they always travel well. Who knew that traveling well was one of the BCS criteria? So this what it’s become about in the BS -- or rather BCS -- bowl system, teams that travel well and sell hotel rooms will get the nod from a major conference and become eligible for an invite if their in the top-14 of the BCS standings.

The Wynn opened Virginia Tech as a three-point favorite over Michigan, but were immediately bet against dropping it down to -1 ½. The Las Vegas Hilton opened their numbers shortly after with Tech -1 and have since moved to PICK.

Trying to see who the bettors thought was worse, the ACC or Big East, didn’t take long in Orange Bowl matchup between West Virginia and Clemson. Clemson opened as a 2 ½-point favorite and was immediately bet up to -3. The Hilton opened their number at -3 ½.

The Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl give us a couple of classic matchups that are sure to leave us wanting more, like an extended playoff system to see how the winners would do against the winner of the SEC bowl.

The Wynn opened Oregon -4 ½ against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and it has been bet up to -5. The Hilton opened Oregon -4 and had been bet up to -5 ½ by Monday morning. It’s almost like we have seen this game before with the Big 10 type of team in Stanford not being able to keep up with the speed of Oregon earlier this season.

Oklahoma State did all they had to do in crushing Oklahoma last week in hopes that voters would want to see the best team from the Big 12 play the best team from the SEC, but it wasn’t enough as the terrible loss at Iowa State still lingered in the back of every voters mind.

The Cowboys opened as a 3 ½-point favorite in the Fiesta Bowl against Stanford in what should be a very entertaining game. The two teams have contrasting styles with the physical Stanford squad led by Heisman candidate Andrew Luck and his precision execution to Oklahoma State’s fast paced offense led by 28-year-old quarterback Brandon Weeden. So far, this has been the only game with no movement as bettors are showing great respect for each team.

Meanwhile, one-loss Boise State is left out of the mix joining Kansas State as a casualty of BCS politics. Houston was also punished harshly with their loss to Southern Miss falling from No. 6 all the way to No. 19 as if the voters said, “go away already, you’re bothering me.” Southern Miss didn’t get much credit for knocking off the undefeated Cougars moving up only three positions to No. 21.

While the system is surely flawed, South Point sports director Bert Osborne loves the low numbers on the games.

“What the low numbers do is keep the underdog money-line respectable to a point where we don’t lose too much if the ‘dog wins,“ said Osborne. “Everyone thinks that when the underdogs win we do well. But that’s not always the case, especially in the bigger bowl games with huge action. The trend with the public is usually to lay the points or take the odds with the ‘dog at plus-money.”

Osborne opened LSU -2 over Alabama in the Championship with a total of 40. He shortened the money-line about 10 cents to LSU -130 and +110 on Alabama just to be ahead of the game over the counter that always replays itself.

How to bet bowl season: A handicapper's guide

The college football bowl season provides a number of challenges and opportunities for sports bettors but also unique factors for handicappers to consider.

The long layoff, potential suspensions of players, differing motivation, neutral fields, warmer weather, coaching rumors, live movements, and traveling fan bases, are all factors that generally don’t come up during the regular season.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when betting on bowl games and a few tips to help boost your profits this holiday season.

Who is coaching the team?

Once the regular season concludes in early December, it’s open season on head coaches. Coaches can be fired and hired away with no consideration given to the upcoming bowl game.

Often times when a coach decides to leave the school for a better job or if he got fired, he is still permitted to coach in the bowl game. But sometimes interim head coaches are thrust into the role of head coach in the bowl.

Who is playing in the game?

December means bowl games as well as college finals.

Sometime before the bowl game, coaches are given a list of players who are academically ineligible to play. And then there are the players who get in trouble while on the road and get sent home from the bowl. Keep an eye for suspensions and dismissals.

Long layoff

Every team playing in a bowl game has at least a two-week layoff and it is often four weeks to a month between games.

Both teams have to deal with the rust that can come with 30 days with no games, but perennial bowl teams generally excel in this phase of preparation. Not only have many of the players on repeat bowl-bound teams been through the situation before, but coaches have a practice and travel schedule they generally stick to each year.

Another thing that goes with the long layoff is line moves. Sides and totals can look drastically different between December 5 and New Year’s Day. Locking in a line early or waiting to take a game are both calculated risks. Savvy handicappers can more often than not accurately predict bowl game line moves.

Weather

Most bowl games are either played in a dome or in warm-weather climate, but not all of them. There are cold-weather games and bowl games in baseball parks, where field conditions can be an issue. Weather is more likely to affect the total than the side.

Neutral sites

Bowl games are played at neutral sites with rare exceptions, like when Boise State played in the Humanitarian Bowl on its home field. Some teams just played in conference championships at neutral sites, while it could be a first for other teams.

Past conference performance

Bowl tie-ins with conferences are generally unchanged year to year, and looking back over the past decade can reveal some trends on how conferences fare in certain bowl games against other conferences. Some matchups are even, others are one-sided.

Motivation

All things considered and looking at the big picture, motivation is the biggest factor in handicapping bowl games, aside from the teams themselves.

Aside from the BCS National Championship Game and most of the BCS bowl games, many teams motivation can be questioned.

When attempting to gauge motivation be aware of the team's preseason ranking (are they overachieving or underachieving), performance in their last game and last few games (coming off a heart-breaking loss or long winning streak), what bowl game if any they played in last year (were they in the Rose Bowl this time last year and now in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl), coaching situation (are they playing for a lame duck coach), and the opponent (is a ACC team going against a MAC team).

College football betting: Bowl mismatches outside BCS

Gildan New Mexico Bowl

Temple Owls vs. Wyoming Cowboys (6.5, 48.5)
Bernard Pierce/Matt Brown vs. Wyoming’s run defense

In 12 games this season, Temple has attempted 184 passes (15.3 per game) and has run the ball 576 times (48 per game) for more than 3,000 yards. Bernard Pierce has gotten most of it, going 248 times for 1,381 yards (5.6 average) and 25 touchdowns. Matt Brown has another 867 yards on 142 carries (6.1 average).

There’s little doubt what Temple is going to try to do and Wyoming appears to be the perfect team to do it against. The Cowboys rank 115th out of 120 teams in rushing defense, allowing 231.4 yards per game.

MAACO Bowl Las Vegas

Boise State Broncos vs. Arizona State Sun Devils (-14, 66)
Kellen Moore vs. Devils’ defensive backs

Boise State hasn’t been as consistently overwhelming as many had hoped this season. But the Broncos still have one of the top receiving corps around, and a senior quarterback in Moore that can get it to them.

Moore has thrown for 3,507 yards, 41 TDs and just seven INTs. He and the rest of the team’s seniors have been one of the school’s most successful classes and are poised to go out a winner.

ASU, meanwhile, has lost four straight, giving up big passing numbers to Pac 12 bottom feeders Arizona (370) and Washington State (494) during the span.
Moore must be licking his chops studying an Arizona State defensive backfield that ranks 107th against the pass (270.9 ypg). The Broncos will also look to make a statement following the major BCS snub.

Valero Alamo Bowl

Washington Huskies vs. Baylor Bears (-9, 78)
Robert Griffin III vs. Huskies’ defense

Griffin is a dual-threat offensive juggernaut for Baylor. He threw for 3,998 yards, 36 TD and six INT, completing 72.4 percent of his passes. He also rushed for 655 yards and nine scores.

Washington has been dismal against quarterbacks who can throw, allowing 283.8 yards per game through the air which is fifth-worst in the nation. And that number is lowered because the likes of Stanford’s Andrew Luck, Oregon’s Darron Thomas and USC’s Matt Barkley. They barely passed in the second halves against Washington because of big leads.

Leading a Baylor offense that ranks No. 5 in passing (356.2 ypg), there’s a good bet Griffin may not be throwing much in the second half either.

Capital One Bowl

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks (-2.5, 48)
Tyler Martinez vs. Gamecocks’ defense

Martinez is an explosive runner who’s able to break away from most defenses and change games with his feet. But he’s also Nebraska’s quarterback and when he needs to throw, it’s a hold-your-breath moment for Huskers fans.

Martinez has completed just 55.9 percent of his passes for 1,973 yards, 12 TDs and seven INTs.

Nebraska had better get ahead early so it can run all the time, because USC’s defense doesn’t allow much through the air. The Gamecocks rank second in the nation in pass defense (133 ypg) and have intercepted 18 passes. In the last three games, USC has allowed a paltry 70 ypg through the air.

AT&T Cotton Bowl

Kansas State Wildcats vs. Arkansas Razorbacks (-8, 62.5)
Razorbacks’ pass offense vs. Wildcats’ defensive backs

Tyler Wilson has thrown for 3,422 yards, 22 TDs and six INTs. He even threw for more than 200 yards against Alabama and LSU. He also had a QB rating of more than 120 and 148 in those games respectively.

Jarius Wright has 1,029 yards receiving and 11 TDs, one of four of Wilson’s targets with 490 yards or more.

The Wildcats have been torched through the air. They’re allowing an average of 267.2 yards, 104th in the nation. That includes 502 yards against Oklahoma State, 346 against Baylor, 461 against Texas Tech and 505 against Oklahoma. The Razorbacks are licking their chops.

Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman

Toledo Rockets vs. Air Force Falcons (3, 69.5)
Rockets’ run offense vs. Falcons’ run defense

Toledo’s offense uses a passing attack that averages an impressive 272 yards per game to run the ball. The Rockets average 222 yards per game on the ground, the eighth-most in the nation.

That balance shows why Toledo averages a whopping 42.2 points per game.

The speed – but lack of size – of Air Force makes the squad strong against the long ball. But the Falcons have struggled to slow down running games, allowing 228 yards per game - 112th out of 120 teams. In AFA’s last game, it beat hapless Colorado State 45-21, but Rams’ Chris Nwoke still rushed for 29 for 269 and two TD. If the Falcons can’t slow down the rush against bad teams that can’t pass, how will they slow down a team that can?

Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Northwestern Wildcats (10, 65)
Dan Persa vs. Aggies’ pass defense

Persa, Northwestern’s cerebral quarterback, isn’t going to throw the ball over the Aggies’ beleaguered defensive backs. But he will throw underneath them, again and again.

Persa completed 74.3 percent of his passes this season, the best percentage of any starter in college football. Conversely, A&M’s defense allowed QBs to throw at a 62-percent clip, which is among the very worst among the 70 teams that are playing in a bowl game.

The problem is, A&M isn’t great at making the quick tackle. The team allows 280.5 pass yards per game, ranking 113th.

Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl

Florida Gators vs. Ohio State Buckeyes (2, 44)
Gators’ pass defense vs. Buckeyes’ pass offense

Buckeyes freshman quarterback Braxton Miller is going to be very good eventually. But he’s still learning.

Miller has completed just 50 percent of his passes for 997 yards. OSU’s 124.1 pass yards per game ranks 116th out of 120 teams.

Florida’s had its own problems this season, but passing defense is not one of them. The Gators still have NFL-caliber talent in the backfield and rank 10th in slowing the pass. Quarterbacks only connected on 52.8 percent of their passes and have just 13 passing TDs against Florida.

Miller’s going to need a lot of help from the Buckeyes’ inconsistent running game to give him a chance against that defensive unit.

Bowl Season

New Mexico Bowl

This should be good game if only because both teams thrilled to be in a bowl game; Temple is in second bowl since 1979 (lost 30-21 to UCLA in '09 bowl), Wyoming is in its third bowl since '93 (won bowls in '04, '09, both as double digit underdogs). Cowboys covered last four games as an underdog, winning five of last seven SU. Owls ran ball for 200+ yards in each of last seven games- they lost to Penn St. in September 14-10 (+8) . Temple is 4-4 as a favorite thi season. MAC non-conference favorites are 4-3 vs spread this year; MWC road underdogs are 4-8, 2-1 if spread is single digits. Mountain West teams won this bowl the last four years, with average total in the last three, 71.3.


Idaho Potato Bowl

Utah State lost the first Idaho Potato Bowl 35-19 to Cincinnati back in 1997, last bowl Aggies played in; State won its last five games to get to this bowl, with all five wins by 4 points or less, or in OT- they're 2-6 vs spread as a favorite. Ohio U hasn't played on a Saturday since October 22; they're playing their 4th bowl in last six years, but lost last three, by 28-7/21-17/48-21 scores. Bobcats' bowls last two years were in domes; their punter whined when he found out they were coming here. Ohio also won its last five games; they are 1-1 as underdog this year. WAC faves are 7-5 out of conference this year, 3-1 on road. MAC road underdogs are 10-16 vs spread, 4-3 if spread was single digits. WAC teams are 3-5 in last eight Idaho Bowls. Utah State should have edge in fan support.
