College Football Betting: OSU Buckeyes vs. Texas Longhorns

College football betting offers a big challenge in evaluating the intangibles of the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl college football odds.

College football betting handicappers know that Texas feels totally cheated by the BCS system while Ohio State has not performed well against the college football odds vs. top teams.  On first glance the Ohio State Buckeyes had a good college football betting season as they went 10-2 straight up.

Ohio State carried poor value, however, against the college football odds as they went 5-6 against the spread.  Ohio State does carry some college football betting momentum; however, as they beat the college football odds in their final three games of the season.  The Buckeyes college football betting strength is their 8th ranked defense.

Their 79th ranked offense does not inspire much confidence against the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl odds.  Still, Ohio State does have some college football betting weapons.  Chris Wells rushed for over 1000 yards and had a 5.7 YPC average.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a solid 152 rating and a 12/4 TD/INT ratio to become an asset against the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl odds.

Keep in mind that Ohio State has done poorly against the college football betting line versus elite teams and has the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl betting blemish of being manhandled by USC and Penn State this year and by Florida last year in the BCS title game.

The Texas Longhorns have an overall college football betting record of 11-1 straight up and 9-3 against the spread.  It’s no secret that Texas believes that they deserve more than to be on the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl betting board.

The Longhorns do have a case as they beat Oklahoma on a neutral field 45-35 and covered the college football betting line as a 7 point dog.  But the BCS computers spit out the Sooners to face Florida in the title game anyway.

Texas’ college football betting strength is their 9th ranked offense led by quarterback Colt McCoy, who cranked out a 179 rating, 3445 yards, and a stellar 32/7 TD/INT ratio.  His two favorite targets are Jordan Shipley and Quan Cosby, who had near identical numbers of nearly 80 catches each for over 900 yards apiece.

Texas rushing attack is also a college football betting plus as a committee of several players ran for over 2100 yards and a 4.4 YPC average.  The only question here is the mental state of Texas.

Take a “Fiesta” at for action on the Buckeyes and Longhorns!
