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

Buffalo vs. San Diego State
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl - Boise, Idaho
Saturday, December 21, 2:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Buffalo -1.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: San Diego State pk O/U 53
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

Heart of Dallas Betting Preview: UNLV Rebels vs. North Texas Mean Green

UNLV vs. North Texas
Heart of Dallas Bowl - Dallas, Texas
Wednesday, January 1, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
North Texas -6.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: North Texas -6.5 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: North Texas -6.5

Two nice storylines in this matchup as North Texas and UNLV end their respective postseason droughts with berths in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. For North Texas the accomplishment is even sweeter by playing right down the road in the Cotton Bowl. UNLV meanwhile broke through with a 7-win campaign – a monumental accomplishment for a program that had won two games in six of its last eight seasons. While the Cotton Bowl won't be packed to the gills, motivation for both sides won't be an issue.

From a power rating perspective, Sagarin has North Texas a raw -7. It doesn't look as if oddsmakers are giving much of any home field advantage to the Mean Green. According to Sagarin, NT ranks 69th Read more

College Football Gambling: Virginia Tech tries to close out disappointing season strong

Virginia Tech vs. UCLA -7 O/U 47

Virginia Tech's talks about preperation and mindset for its Sun Bowl matchup against UCLA.


“The fact of the matter is, we let three football games slip away,” first-year offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler said Saturday during the team’s bowl media day. “I think this bowl preparation, we should have a chip on our shoulder.”

“I think I can count on one hand how many plays I’d like to have back all year,” defensive coordinator Bud Foster said. “The kids did everything we asked of them all year defensively. … We had an ACC championship defense, if not a national championship-type defense.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Manhattan Jaspers at South Carolina Gamecocks

Manhattan at South Carolina -2.5
Recommendation: South Carolina


Pair of potential problems exists here for home-standing Gamecocks who have shown a mixed bag of results in their 2-3 start to this season. The first concern is the 11-day layoff South Carolina has had since playing its last game which was a disastrous 75-52 road loss to no. 7 Oklahoma State. That game magnified the second concern for head coach Frank Martin’s team which is turnovers. South Carolina committed 24 of them against the up-tempo Cowboys which dropped them to 296th in the nation at 14.6 per game. Relentless pressure defense is what Manhattan is predicated on under 4th year head coach Steve Masiello and thus far they’ve forced 14.7 turnovers per game while averaging 7.4 steals. This would appear to be a hand in glove matchup for the Jaspers defense but the return of South Carolina guard Bruce Ellington tonight could help shore up some of the ball handling woes. Ellington (starting WR on SC’s football team) makes his first start and is a backcourt veteran.

These teams have similarities as both have been poor shooting the basketball (42.3% Manhattan, Read more

Pittsburgh vs. Bowling Green
Little Caesars - Detroit, Mich.
Thursday, December 26, 3 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Bowling Green -5.5 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Bowling Green -5 O/U 50
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Bowling Green -2

The Little Caesars Bowl represents a return to college football action after a brief day of rest for Christmas. It will showcase Pitt (6-6, ACC) and Bowling Green (10-3, MAC) doing battle at Ford Field in Detroit and we’ll examine how these teams got to be where they are and how they stack up.

Pitt was no guarantee to even make a bowl after their Jekyll and Hyde season. Inconsistent is probably the best way to describe this team and it’s easy to understand when you step back and look at them. They had to replace their starting quarterback, their leading rusher, and their best receiver to start the year couple with their transition to the ACC. They opened the year with a Read more

College Football Handicapping: Michigan's Gardner has yet to practice for bowl

Michigan vs. Kansas State -3.5 O/U 55.5

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner (turf toe) has yet to practice as the team prepares for their Buffalo Wild Wings matchup against Kansas State. It sounds as if he will play, especially considering Gardner's backup, Shane Morris, has attempted only nine passes. Gardner caught a lot of flak this season but closed the season strong with a 451 yard, 4 TD, 0 INT performance against Ohio State.


“He’s thrown the ball a little bit, but we haven’t done a whole lot,” Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday. “(We) don’t want to get him out there too soon. It’s more than anything making sure Read more

College Football Betting: Georgia and Nebraska face off for second straight year

Nebraska vs. Georgia -9 O/U 60.5

Sounds as if Georgia was a little disappointed to draw Nebraska for a second straight year after beating the Cornhuskers 45-31 in the Capital One Bowl. In that game, UGA closed as a 9.5-point favorite with a total of 62. Heading into the fourth quarter, the game was tied 31-31.


"I was kind of hoping we were going to play the U or I heard there was a chance we could play the alma mater,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said of Miami, where he was a backup quarterback. “This will be great because Nebraska is the team I grew up admiring. That was my team as a kid (in Omaha, Neb.) so it worked out good.”

“I was kind of like the other guys,” the Georgia senior offensive lineman said. “I did want to play Michigan or Iowa or Minnesota, just a

College Football Handicapping: North Carolina in the right frame of mind for Belk Bowl

Cincinnati vs. North Carolina -3 O/U 56.5

North Carolina's season was far from smooth as the Tar Heels started 1-5 and barely slipped into the postseason at 6-6. But this is a program that has been through a lot – NCAA issues, postseason ban, coaching changes, etc. – and is viewing the nearby Belk Bowl as an opportunity to send their seniors off on a good note.


“Think about this senior class and what they’ve been through,” UNC coach Larry Fedora said at the close of practice Monday.

“They come in here and we start out with the investigation. They see it through. They have to be the one to bear the weight of the sanctions,” Fedora said. “And then they had three head coaches, they’ve had two staffs. I know (defensive end) Kareem Martin has had six position coaches.
