NCAA Football Betting – Northwestern Wildcats To Finish With 12 Covers, Best Mississippi State Bulldogs
Written by Adam Markowitz of North Shore Sports, INC
The 2012 college football season is definitely at the most important time of the year in the bowl season! NCAA football betting action gets going with the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Northwestern Wildcats in the Gator Bowl. Today, we take a look at one of the great bowl battles on the gridiron on New Year”s Day.
Mississippi State Bulldogs: -2
Northwestern Wildcats: 2
They”ll be fighting like (Wild)cats and (Bull)dogs on New Year”s Day to kick off all of the bowl games, and this is one of the more intriguing battles that we have to make our NCAA football betting picks on.
The Bulldogs started off the year at 7-0, but when push came to shove in the SEC West, just as has been the case for the last few years, they just weren”t good enough to get the job done against the big boys. QB Tyler Russell was great on the campaign, throwing for 2,791 yards with a 22/6 TD/INT ratio. He also has some great tools to work with in RB LaDarius Perkins and WR Chad Bumphis. Still, for as talented as these two men are, even in the fantastic SEC, 20 TDs between them without either one getting to 1,000 yards doesn”t cut it.
Northwestern very quietly was a great team to back on the NCAA football betting odds this year at 11-1 ATS. Sure, the Big Ten was weak on the campaign, but Northwestern clearly played in the better of the two divisions, and it played a reasonable non-conference schedule that included teams like the Syracuse Orange, Vanderbilt Commodores, and Boston College Eagles.
RB Venric Mark was named as an All-American this year for his performance on the ground. He rushed for 1,310 yards and 11 TDs, and he was one of the two men on this team that rushed for double digits worth of touchdowns. The other was QB Kain Colter, who does throw it sometimes, but has the primary purpose of running the Wildcat.
The drawback if you want to play the Wildcats on the NCAA football betting lines is that they didn”t have a single receiver this year get to even 400 receiving yards. In fact, the team only threw for 2,002 yards all year long, and the passing attack is going to need to be somewhat productive to win this game.
Free Prediction – What a lack of respect here for the Wildcats! There really isn”t a great comparison point for these two teams, as there really are no common opponents or common opponents of common opponents, but what we do see here is that Mississippi State, a team that went 1-4 SU and ATS in its last five games, is laying points to a Northwestern outfit that was the best in America this year for bettors. That”s more than good enough for us to take whatever points being offered.

NCAA Football Betting – Florida Gators to Knock Off Ohio State Buckeyes in Gator Bowl
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
NCAA Football betting gets going once again for football fans during the bowl season, and Bookmaker Sportsbook brings you our Gator Bowl selection between the Florida Gators and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Ever Bank Field in Jacksonville, FL will be the site of Monday, January 2nd”s NCAA Football betting showdown between the Ohio State Buckeyes (6-6, 6-6 ATS) and the Florida Gators (6-6, 3-8-1 ATS). The Gator Bowl will kick off at 1:00 ET, and it will be shown live on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com
NCAA Football Betting Odds
Florida Gators (-2) -110
Ohio State Buckeyes ( 2) -110
Head Coach Urban Meyer is going to be taking over for the Buckeyes next year, and that is only going to add some fuel to the fire between a bit of a developing rivalry between two teams that were once upon a time national title contenders.
However, Meyer won”t be involved with this battle on the NCAA football betting odds in the Gator Bowl, and it is probably going to be a good thing since this game really isn”t going to be all that great.
Florida”s offense was absolutely atrocious down the stretch this season. There”s a reason that the team went 0-8 ATS in its last eight games over the course of the regular season. The loss to the Florida State Seminoles was an ugly one, as the offense didn”t get on the board until very late in the fourth quarter.
It has been a rough season again for John Brantley. Brantley, who had to wait for two years to take over for Tim Tebow, figured that he would have more success under Charlie Weis” offense than that of Meyer, but that really hasn”t been the case. He threw for 1,912 yards and 10 TDs against six picks, but he really couldn”t do much to beat the NCAA football betting lines this year. He has suffered a number of injuries with his latest being a concussion. He probably won”t miss this game, but it is definitely something to watch in front of an offensive line that has been terrible this season.
Ohio State has improved dramatically as the season has worn out. DeVier Posey is going to be in this game, just the third duel of his senior season, and that is going to be an interesting addition for Braxton Miller, who is a freshman that is most certainly up and coming.
– Florida dominated in the 2007 National Championship Game against these Buckeyes as big time underdogs. Since that point, the SEC has really dominated against the Big Ten in virtually every bowl game. Remember the Gator Bowl last year when Mississippi State beat the snot out of Michigan? We don”t think that the result will be that ugly, but we do think that UF is going to get the best of OSU again.
Beating the NCAA Football betting lines can be a snap, but only if you”ve got the right sportsbook at your fingertips.

2011 Progressive Gator Bowl Odds and Predictions
College Football Lines – Rich Rod Might Need Gator Bowl Win To Save Job Against Bulldogs
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
Whether you prefer to bet on college football lines with mobile betting or on the internet, Bookmaker Sportsbook is your one stop shop for the entire 2010 NCAA football betting campaign, including for this duel between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Michigan Wolverines in the Gator Bowl.
: The bowl season kicks off at the Gator Bowl for the Michigan Wolverines as they take on the college football lines against the Mississippi State Bulldogs at Ever Bank Field in Jacksonville, FL. Kickoff on Saturday, January 1st is set for 1:30 ET in a nationally televised tussle on ESPN2.
Head Coach Rich Rodriguez is definitely on the hot seat even though he finally took the Wolverines to a bowl game for the first time throughout his stay in Ann Arbor. However, with some other great coaches out there available for the taking, Rodriguez needs to prove that he is still capable of taking the program to better heights to keep his job.
If he”s going to beat the college football lines in this one, he knows that Denard Robinson is going to have to have a great game. Robinson was once the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy this year, but he was overtaken by a number of other contenders as Big Blue lost some games in the regular season.
Though the Wolverines went just 3-5 SU and 0-8 ATS in their L/8 battles against the college football lines, Robinson still shined, throwing for 2,316 yards and 16 scores, and rushing for 1,643 yards and 14 TDs. He used Roy Roundtree quite a bit this year, as the top receiver for Michigan set a school record for yards in a game against the Illinois Fighting Illini.
The Bulldogs might have been the most pleasant surprise in the SEC this year, as Head Coach Dan Mullen really should have been up for AP Coach of the Year honors. He brought a program that had really slipped in recent years, and made it a legitimate Top 25 contender.
MSU did lose this year to all of the best teams in the SEC West, but the win over the Florida Gators in the Swamp was the highlight of the year.
Offensively, the combination of Chris Relf under center and Vick Ballard in the backfield put together 218.9 yards per game, to rank No. 16 in the land rushing the pigskin. On the other side of the ball the “D” only allowed 111.8 yards per game rushing; a real testament to how strong this team has been at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.
The Gator Bowl college football lines feature Mississippi State favored by 4.5 points with a total of 59.5. The Bulldogs have had a great season this year, and they really did a nice job against Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers earlier this season. That might bode well for a great game against the Wolverines here in Jacksonville. The line is dropping, but we still have confidence that New Year”s Day is a day for the Dogs.
