The BCS was put into place to create the best match ups. Match ups of teams that were so evenly talented that it could be a toss up who would win the games. In that regard, the BCS has failed miserably this year.

Tonight, the Orange Bowl takes center stage. It will try to do something none of its BCS equals has been able to accomplish. Produce a competitive game.

So far this BCS season, there have been several BCS games. The Sugar Bowl was a blowout, with Georgia routing the only undefeated team in Division 1 football, Hawaii. Earlier that day in the Rose Bowl, USC showed its powers by blasting over matched Illinois.

Last night, in the Fiesta Bowl, West Virginia, a team playing without their former head coach Rich Rodriguez, surprisingly blew out Oklahoma.

Now along comes the Orange Bowl, and Virginia Tech and Kansas. The Hokies and the Jayhawks will try and produce the kind of excitement that was expected from this bowl season. If they fail to do that, only Ohio State and LSU in the national championship will be left to save the BCS.

The betting line for tonight’s game is Virginia Tech minus three. The total is fifty one.

The NFL season has moved into the playoffs. That, for gamblers, means no more Cowboys-Dolphins match ups to steal money on. Now, gamblers will have to rely on what they think they have learned through the course of the regular season.

Today, the NFL playoffs begin, and several teams are looking to pull upsets on wild card weekend. The games today feature two home teams that are not getting much respect nationally.

The Seattle Seahawks are playing at home in the first game of the day. The Washington Redskins are the opponent, but to listen to the analysts, the Redskins should pull the upset. Over looked by most analysts, however, is Seattle’s ability to win home games. Bettors should consider strongly the Seahawks at home.

 

In the other game of the day, Pittsburgh hosts Jacksonville. Again, much like the Redskins, Seahawks game, the underdog is getting much airtime around the country. While the Steelers are the home team, the Jaguars are favored.

If history shows us anything, its not to count out the Steelers. In 2006, Pittsburgh was the six seed when they made an improbable run and won the Super Bowl. Even so, Jacksonville appears to strong and among the league’s best, lay the points, collect the rewards.

Game times for today will be 4:30 and 8:00 P.M..
