The Bowl Odds

The bowl odds have been trickling in and there have been several line swings already, reflected at Vegas Insider. Let's start with the biggie, the Bowl Championship Series title game. Louisiana State opened a 4.5-point favorite but has been bid up to 6 at some sportsbooks.

In the Sugar, Georgia opened an 8-point favorite against Hawaii and is now at 10.

In the Fiesta, Oklahoma opened a 4.5-point favorite against West Virginia and is now 7.

In the Rose, USC opened a 14-point favorite against Illinois and that number is steady. This is the biggest spread on the board.

In the Orange, Virginia Tech opened a 1-point favorite against Kansas and has been pushed to 4 at some sportsbooks.

The GMAC Bowl between Bowling Green and Tulsa is expected to be the highest scoring with an over/under of 75.5. It opened at 73 but has been bid up.

The Las Vegas Bowl between Brigham Young and UCLA is expected to be the lowest scoring with an over/under of 46.5. It opened at 47 but has been bid down.
