Florida Gators vs Penn State: 2010 Outback Bowl Odds

Florida Gators vs Penn State: 2010 Outback Bowl Odds

ABC will televise the 2010 Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day between the Florida Gators vs Penn State Nittany Lions with a starting time of 1:00pm EST from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. Online sportsbooks have opened with Florida as a 7-point favorite in college football odds vs Penn State with an over/under betting total of 48. The money line at sportsbooks has listed Florida as a -280 favorite in 2010 Outback Bowl picks and Penn State as a +240 underdog. The Capital One Bowl will also kick-off at 1:00pm EST on ESPN which will feature the remaining bowl games on January 1st; the Gator Bowl (ESPN2), Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl.

Penn State was something of a rebuilding team this year and finished 7-5 straight up and 5-7 against the spread in college football picks with 7 of their games going OVER the total. The Lions split their 8 Big Ten games and are considered by most handicappers to be a team with considerable upside for 2011 which is one of the reasons why 84 year old Joe Paterno is coming back as coach. Paterno proved he can change with the times as he started freshman Robert Bolden at QB which ended up in split time with Matthew McGloin due to injuries. McGloin actually had the better season with a 13/4 TD/INT ratio. Both are healthy and may see action in this one which is why Penn State is a slight underdogs in 2010 Outback Bowl odds. Evan Royster could clear the 1,000 yard mark rushing in this one as he has 916 yards.

Florida is playing their final game for coach Urban Meyer, who probably wishes that he would have stayed retired when he announced before last year’s Sugar Bowl that he was done, only to return. Florida struggled to find an offensive identity without Tim Tebow and finished 7-5 straight up and 6-6 against the spread in college football picks with an even 6-6 split on over/under totals. The Gators ranked 79th for total offense and 32nd for points allowed although 7th for total defense. Heading into Outback Bowl picks, Florida has paid out in 4 of their last 5 bowl games while the Nittany Lions are 2-6 against the spread in non conference action.

2011 Super Bowl XLV: Baltimore Ravens Odds

The Baltimore Ravens could be one of the better values in 2011 Super Bowl odds as a +1400 longshots to win the world championship of pro football this season. Baltimore finished with a record of 12-4 straight up and 8-7-1 against the spread to finish in a first place tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North but the Men of Steel got the tie breaker advantage. Heading into Super Bowl XLV predictions as underdogs, Baltimore went UNDER the total in 9 of their games this season and finished the season strong with 4 consecutive straight up wins and 3 payouts in that span.

The Ravens will open playoff action in Super Bowl odds on Sunday at Kansas City in the AFC wild card round. The Ravens were 5-2-1 against the spread on the road this year with 5 of their 8 away games going UNDER the total. Defense remains the strength of Baltimore as it has been for the past decade as the Ravens rank 10th overall in the NFL for total defense and 3rd for points allowed. Quarterback Joe Flacco will lead the Ravens as longshot in 2011 Super Bowl XLV predictions after having a nice bounce back season.

Baltimore is well coached and a confident team that won at New England in the playoffs last season.
