College Football Betting Odds: the BCS
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
You’ve waited all year for the BCS. It’s here. It’s about to happen. In just a few days’ time, some of the biggest college football betting moments will occur. Yes, the playoff will start. It starts on the last day of the year, in fact. All year, every team played for the right to be one of the top four teams in all of college football. Now, those four have been chosen, and two of them will move on to the National Championship Game. As always, you can find all of the college football betting odds you could ever want right here at BetNow.
College Football Betting Odds: The Orange Bowl
Many consider this to be the better of the games between the two, but (in NFL Films Narrator voice) “that’s why they play the games.” In the first game, at 7:35 PM Eastern Standard Time from the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, the Georgia Bulldogs of the SEC will meet the Michigan Wolverines of the Big 10.
Our handicappers see this game as a defensive struggle for the most part. We’ve got it with an over/under of 45. That’s much less than many other games will be. How do you see the game going? Does Georgia’s air attack get back on track against Michigan? Or, does the Wolverines’ ferocious pass rush mix with their great running game to give them the edge over the Bulldogs?
Here at BetNow, our folks see it going to Georgia. As of this writing, we’ve got the Bulldogs as more than a touchdown favorite, with a line of seven and a half. Of course, anything can happen to change that line throughout the week (cough, cough, COVID-19 – among other factors) so it all comes down to how you see it happening.
The Cotton Bowl
It’s rare that, you get to this point in the season, and you have a game in the playoff where one team is a big favorite over another. After all, you figure that these really were the four best teams, so how can one have that much of an advantage over another? That’s one of the questions that we’re all facing in the second game, the Cotton Bowl, from the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, as the Cincinnati Bearcats take on the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Our handicappers see this as a high-scoring affair, with an over/under of 57.5 points. That’s more than many of the other bowl games throughout the bowl season. That said, our handicappers see the Crimson Tide as doing much of the scoring of that over/under. As of this writing, we’ve got Bama as a favorite by 13 points. Read that again: 13 points. That’s a big number.
How do you see this game going? Does Alabama do what Alabama tends to do, which is crush teams that are below them in the rankings through superior athleticism and experience? Or, do the Bearcats do what so few believe they can do, which is to hold Alabama off long enough to get the upset of a lifetime? How do you see this one playing out?
