College Football Bowl Play of the Day: BCS Championship Game

It's a rematch between LSU and Alabama in the BCS title game.

This is bound to be a close game.  I think it will be close for three quarters.

LSU won earlier this season 9-6.  LSU won in 2010 24-21. 

LSU is favored by 1.5 points and word is quite a bit on money is coming in on Alabama.

I just like LSU's weapons and playmakers and their offensive line wearing the Crimson Tide down as the game enters the fourth quarter.

LSU is also 8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.  They play well against good teams. 

These are both good, well coached teams.  It's all up for grabs tonight in New Orleans.

Prediction: LSU 23  Alabama 17

Take LSU and give the 1.5.

College Football Bowl Play of the Day: Sugar Bowl

After a day of exciting games on Jan. 2, we get the Sugar Bowl tonight and it could be another close one.

Michigan and Virginia Tech, with Michigan coming in a quite a roll.  They've put points up in bunches against every team recently other than Iowa.

But now they are playing a Frank Beamer team and he's had time to prepare.

Virginia Tech is getting 3 and Beamer has to relish being the underdog. 

Look for Virginia Tech to be well prepared and to force turnovers and make a big play on special teams. 

Take the Hokies and the 3 points in the Sugar Bowl.

College Football Bowl Play of the Day: Rose Bowl

Oregon and Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl this year.

Both teams can put up points and bunches of them, but they go about it in different ways.

Oregon is a fast break, high tempo offense that is quick and deceptive as they move down the field.  Wisconsin likes to run and they do it well.  They also mix in the pass with Russell Wilson leading the way.

Oregon is giving the Badgers 5.5 points and I think Oregon's offense wears down the Wisconsin defense in the fourth quarter to pull away at the end.

It should be a fun game to watch, but take Oregon and give the 5.5.

College Football Bowl Play of the Day: Pinstripe Bowl

Where else would a bowl game between Iowa State and Rutgers be played other than Yankee Stadium in New York?

It's the Pinstripe Bowl and on paper it looks like a good game.

Rutgers comes into the game 8-4 and Iowa St. 6-6, so you might think Rutgers would be an overwhelming favorite.  Not the case.  The Cyclones have played one of the toughest schedules in the country and have logged wins over the likes of Iowa and Oklahoma State.

Rutgers has beaten South Florida and Cincinnati, but they might not have the offense to stay with ISU. 

The game is a "Pick" or Iowa State is getting 1 point, which means it's a pick.  Take Iowa State as they will win by a TD.

Go Cyclones!

College Football Bowl Play of the Day: Military Bowl

It's only appropriate that Air Force is playing in the Military Bowl.

The Air Force gets a tough opponent in high scoring Toledo.

Toledo scores at will as hasn't scored fewer than 44 points in their last five games.  Air Force can score too, and today I think they control the ball.

Air Force is getting 3 points and I like them to get the win today.  Also the total is 70, and I expect it to go way beyond that.

Picks:  Take Air Force +3 and the OVER 70.
