The 2013 BCS Bowls may be lacking in the name brand department, but there are some intriguing match-ups, despite all the heavy chalk being tossed around. Early 2013 BCS Bowl Predictions are favoring Stanford, Florida State, Florida, Oregon, and Alabama by an average of 10.6 points and not a one of those schools is laying fewer than seven points.
2013 BCS Bowl Predictions: Provided by Sportsbook.ag
2013 Rose Bowl Presented by Vizio – (January 1st, 5:00pm ET, ESPN)
Wisconsin Badgers +7 (-110), Over 47.5 (-110)
Stanford Cardinal -7 (-110), Under 47.5 (-110)
Wisconsin turned in a surprising effort against Nebraska in the Big Ten Championship, but its offense has been spotty this year. Stanford, which features one of the best defenses in the country, should limit the Badgers, but keep in mind Wisconsin has not lost a game by more than seven points all season. Prediction: Wisconsin +7.
2013 Discover Orange Bowl – (January 1st, 8:30pm ET, ESPN)
Northern Illinois Huskies +13.5 (-110), Over 58.5 (-110)
Florida State Seminoles -13.5 (-110), Under 58.5 (-110)
Northern Illinois is this year’s Cinderella squad and it is an impressive 12-1 this season; however, the Huskies, who will be without Head Coach Dave Doeren (accepted NCST job), did suffer their only loss to a 4-8 Iowa team. BCS Bowl Prediction: Florida State -13.5.
2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl – (January 2nd, 8:30pm ET, ESPN)
Louisville Cardinals +14 (-110), Over 45.5 (-110)
Florida Gators -14 (-110), Under 45.5 (-110)
Louisville’s mediocre offense will do nothing against an opportunistic and stingy Gators defense. Prediction: Florida -14.
2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl – (January 3rd, 8:30pm ET, ESPN)
Kansas State Wildcats +9 (-110), Over 76.5 (-110)
Oregon Ducks -9 (-110), Under 76.5 (-110)
Kansas State’s offense will have little difficulty putting points on the board against Oregon’s defense if it does not get too far behind. The Wildcats, no doubt, learned something about that when they were victimized by Baylor’s high powered, fast paced offensive attack a few weeks ago. Prediction: Kansas State +9.
2013 Discover BCS National Championship – (January 7th, 8:30pm ET, ESPN)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish +9.5 (-110), Over 42 (-110)
Alabama Crimson Tide -9.5 (-110), Under 42 (-110)
Everyone seems to be in the Crimson Tide camp, but Notre Dame, while lacking in flash, is a team of substance. The Fighting Irish defense is capable of holding Alabama in check and making this a closer game than most are anticipating. Prediction: Notre Dame +9.5.
