Sports gambling handicappers will have the Outback, Gator, Capital One, Rose and Sugar Bowls to take a look at for the gambling sports holiday. The Outback Bowl looks like it could be one of the most exciting matchups on the sports gambling board for New Year’s Day as Northwestern will take on Auburn.
Both teams were pleasant gambling sports surprises for 2009 although Northwestern finished strong with the sports gambling odds while Auburn faded down the stretch after a fast start. Northwestern finished 8-4 after a 2-2 start while Auburn had a straight up sports gambling record of 7-5 after starting off 5-0.
Auburn’s most impressive sports gambling performance may have been the last game of the season in which they lost to top ranked Alabama 26-21.
The Gator Bowl will be an emotional sports gambling matchup between West Virginia and Florida State as long time FSU coach Bobby Bowden will be coaching his final game for the Seminoles after being forced out after another lackluster regular season.
Bowden will be leading Florida State to their 28th consecutive bowl but also will be fighting to avoid a losing season as his team will enter this sports gambling matchup with a mark of 6-6. West Virginia is a tough team that finished 9-3.
Number 11 Penn State will face number 13 LSU in the Capital One Bowl in what many believe to be the best sports gambling matchup on the New Years Day card. Both teams feature plenty of athletes and a lot of defense as well as stellar traditions. Penn State had a sports gambling record of 10-2 while LSU was 9-3.
The Rose Bowl will feature number 7 Oregon and number 8 Ohio State. Both teams finished 10-2 and the matchup will feature the contrast of Oregon’s explosive offense against Ohio State’s stout defense. The Sugar Bowl will feature a bizarre matchup of number 5 Florida against number 4 Cincinnati.
Cincy finished 12-0 but was deserted by their head coach, Brian Kelly, who took off for Notre Dame while Florida coach Urban Meyer resigned, and then backed off to instead take a leave of absence for exhaustion after this game.
This will mark the final game for Gator QB Tim Tebow as Florida enters this one at 12-1 after getting blown out of the SEC title game and losing their number 1 ranking.
