Pinstripe Bowl Betting Preview: Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Rutgers vs. Notre Dame
Pinstripe Bowl - Bronx, NY
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -15.5 O/U 53
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -14 O/U 53.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Notre Dame -18.5

Instead of playing for a BCS Championship like last year, Notre Dame finds itself in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium facing a .500 team. Sportsbooks have the Irish (8-4 SU, 5-6-1 ATS) favored by -14 or -14.5 with a total of 53.5. Gamblers can back the Scarlet Knights on the money line for a +475 payout (risk $100 to win $475). For first-half wagers, Notre Dame is a 7.5-point chalk with a total of 27.

Brian Kelly’s team had several solid victories this season, including scalps of Southern Cal, Michigan State, Arizona State, and BYU. The Irish lost at Michigan, vs. Oklahoma, at Pitt, and at Stanford.

Senior quarterback Tommy Rees threw for 2,938 yards with a 27-13 touchdown-to-interception ratio. T.J. Read more

Texas Bowl Betting Preview: Syracuse Orange vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers

Syracuse vs. Minnesota
Texas Bowl - Houston, Texas
Friday, 3 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Minnesota -4.5 O/U 47.5
CRIS Current: Minnesota -4.5 O/U 47.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Minnesota -7.5

Motivation is always a key in handicapping bowl games, and that force will be pretty equal in tonight’s Texas bowl matchup between Minnesota and Syracuse.  The Gophers dropped their final two games and are looking for their first nine win season since 2003.  In addition, the Gophers arrive in Houston failing to score an offensive touchdown in their last 10 quarters of play.  Meanwhile, the Orange was fortunate to even go bowling with a season finale victory over Boston College.  However, at 6-6, Syracuse will look to make it back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 2001 when the program was just tailing off as a force in the college football world.

The Gophers have a long history Read more

Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Michigan

Michigan’s starting QB Devin Gardner has been sidelined throughout the Wolverines bowl practices, suffering from a nasty case of turf toe.  According to a pre-Christmas report from the Detroit News, Gardner is not likely to play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl against Kansas State. 

Head coach Brady Hoke’s quote upon arriving with the team in Arizona on Monday: “It’s kind of day to day. But right now, if we were playing tonight he would not play. We’re going into it that Shane (Morris) will be the guy.”

While Gardner had a very up and down campaign, he only Read more

College Football Betting: Northern Illinois still irked by poor D vs. Bowling Green

Utah State vs. Northern Illinois -1.5 O/U 58

Northern Illinois picked a bad time for a defensive letdown as Bowling Green racked up 574 yards (8.57 ypp) in the Falcons' 47-27 win in the MAC Championship. The Huskies are calling for a better defensive showing in their upcoming Poinsettia Bowl matchup against Utah State.


"We want to get out there and prove we're better than that," linebacker Michael Santacaterina said. "That would be a long offseason ending (without a win)."

"Communication breakdowns between the secondary and linebackers and linebackers to the D-line," Santacaterina said. "We had mental breakdowns, assignment breakdowns."

College Football Handicapping: Texas wants to win one for Mack

Texas vs. Oregon -13.5 O/U 67

Win won for the Mackster is what Texas is saying following the resignation of Texas head coach Mack Brown. Interesting that the players claim the announcement caught them off guard.


"It was definitely shocking," defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat said. "Just the timing of it, we didn't expect it. You always hear things floating around, always hear rumors, but you never really pay attention to it until something happens.

"It really upset us when it happened. He made his decision and he's still coaching for this game, so we've got to get ready for this."

"We love Coach Brown," safety Adrian Phillips said. "We're just going to fight with Coach Brown to the last straw, and that'll be against Oregon. We've got to send him out

Las Vegas Bowl Betting Preview: USC Trojans vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

USC vs. Fresno State
Las Vegas Bowl
December 21, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
USC -4.5 O/U 62
CRIS Current: USC -6 O/U 63
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -5.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: USC -3.5 1st half

When the bowl pairings were announced a couple of Sundays ago, this matchup was one where the motivational angle of each team was questioned. Fresno State went from BCS buster three weeks ago to this late December, mid-afternoon appearance while the Trojans received this bid on the heels of the resignation of beloved interim head coach Ed Orgeron. To have the early handicapping concern that this game may be anti-climactic for both of these teams was legitimate but all signs currently point to Fresno State and USC having regrouped and now focused on this game.

For the Bulldogs, record setting senior quarterback Derek Carr quoted the team mantra heading into this contest Read more

College Football Gambling Update: Snow and cold temps for Potato Bowl

UPDATE

Buffalo vs. San Diego State pk O/U 53

Last week we blogged about San Diego State's inexperience in cold weather. The Aztecs are currently in Boise and some of the players noted that they are seeing snow for the first time. There is snow in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Game temps are slated for the high 30's but wind does not expect to be a factor.


“There was quite a bit of snow on the side of the field, and I had three kids tell me, ‘Coach, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen snow,’” Aztecs coach Rocky Long said. “When it gets to be 50, they think

College Football Betting: UL-Lafayette's Broadway practiced but still doubtful

Louisiana-Lafayette vs. Tulane -2.5 O/U 49

There appears to be a small chance that UL-Lafayette quarterback Terrance Broadway could play in Saturday's New Orleans Bowl against Tulane. Broadway has a broken bone in his throwing arm but was able to practice yesterday. If he is unable to go, backups Brooks Haack and Jalen Nixon will reportedly split time.


“I thought he improved, but he still has a long ways to go based on what the young man has done,” Hudspeth said. “And he wants to be out there really bad.

“Realistically, though, we’ve got to see by Saturday, which is still a little time, if he progresses, and to make sure that thing is healed up.”

“We sort of know what we’re gonna do,” Hudspeth said somewhat cryptically. “Things maybe

CRIS Opener:

Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Diego State -0.5

An interesting MAC vs. Mountain West matchup will take place on the blue turf in Boise when the Buffalo Bulls (8-4) face the San Diego State Aztecs (7-5). Buffalo was a surprise this season jumping from a dismal 4-8 in 2012 to 8-4. This will mark the program’s second-ever bowl appearance – they lost to UConn by 18 in 2009. Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn’s quote indicates that his team is very excited for this opportunity:

“It's been four years in the making. We talked about setting our goals towards being a football program that has a November and December tradition. And to be invited to a bowl game when we knew there were more bowl eligible Read more

College Football Gambling: Missouri still feels disrespected

Oklahoma State vs. Missouri -1 O/U 60.5

Missouri is using the disrespect card heading into its Cotton Bowl matchup against Oklahoma State.


“We still have one of the best offenses in the nation, and I’ll believe that until someone tells me otherwise,” left tackle Justin Britt said minutes after a 59-42 loss that cost Mizzou an SEC title and a spot in the BCS national championship game. “You know, the story ain’t over. There’s still stuff to be written.”

“We’re still not getting respected, man,” center Evan Boehm said in that otherwise quiet locker room. “We moved the ball on an Auburn team that Alabama had trouble moving the ball (against). If we’re not getting respected after this game, even though
