NCAA Football Betting – National Title Game In The Bayou
Jan. 7 — BCS National Championship at New Orleans, Ohio State (11-1) vs. LSU (11-2), 8 p.m. (FOX)
This year’s NCAA football betting bowl season has been stellar and it’ll be capped off with a dandy, as the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes battle the No. 2 LSU Tigers for the BCS Championship in the bayou on Monday, Jan. 7 at 8:00pm EST.
Hungry to avenge last season’s embarrassing loss in the title game against Florida, Ohio State hopes its lengthy layoff doesn’t make itself apparent.
Because the Big Ten doesn’t play a conference championship game, the Buckeyes will take the field at the Louisiana Superdome having a 51 day layoff since beating Michigan 14-3 on Nov. 17. That’s the same number of days they had off before last year’s 41-14 spanking delivered by the Gators on this very same field.
Ohio State has the best defense in the nation having allowed only 10.7 points per game and 225.3 yards. But the stingy unit will be facing a Tigers team that’s lightning quick on offense and is the fasted team the Buckeyes will have faced all year.
Ohio State finished the regular season at 11-1 SU (straight up) and 7-4 ATS (against the spread). They covered the spread in three of their final four games and in five of their last seven.
LSU employs a two-quarterback system of Matt Flynn, who threw for 2,233 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and Ryan Perrilloux, who had 694 yards passing, eight touchdowns and just two picks. Those players combined to rush for 410 yards, bolstering a ground game led by 1,017-yard rusher Jacob Hester, Keiland Williams (458 yards), Trindon Holliday (351) and Charles Scott (318).
Speed burners Brandon LaFell (641 yards), Demetrius Byrd (593) and Early Doucet (474) headline a deep receiving corps.
Defensively, LSU is also speedy and solid as they’ve surrendered only 19.6 (20th-best in the country) points per game and 283.8 yards.
The Tigers finished the regular season at 11-2 SU and 5-7-1 ATS. They are also a money-dropping 1-5-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
LSU’s defense will attempt to stop a sometimes-overlooked Ohio State offense that averaged 32.0 points. The Buckeyes are led by steady quarterback Todd Boeckman, who completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,171 yards, 23 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Chris Wells powered the ground game with 1,463 yards and 14 touchdowns, while Brian Robiskie paced Ohio State with 885 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.
Ohio State seeks its fifth national championship and first since knocking off Miami in double overtime in the 2003 Orange Bowl. The Buckeyes are 4-1 ATS in their last five bowl games. LSU, which shared the national title with consensus No. 1 USC in 2003, seeks its third championship. The Tigers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven bowl games.
The Buckeyes and Tigers have met twice, not since 1987, with Ohio State holding a 1-0-1 edge.
If you believe defense wins championships then Ohio State is clearly the wise selection in this one. But, if you feel speed kills then most likely you’ll support LSU, who NCAA football odds list as the 4-point favorites with a game total of 49.
This matchup has all the makings of becoming a game for the ages. Be sure to get down on all the action and wrap up this year’s bowl season in money-making fashion
