New England Patriots are favourites to win Super Bowl XLV

December 28th, 2010

The New England Patriots are into a best odds line of +240 (12/5, 3.40)  for the 2011 Super Bowl after securing the AFC’s top seeding for the play-offs.

Quarterback Tom Brady led the Pats to a 34-3 victory over Buffalo on Sunday, one which extended their win-loss record for the season to 13-2.

It means the New England Patriots will have home-field advantage throughout the play-offs. Brady threw for three touchdowns in the rout and extended his streak of pass attempts without an interception to a record 319.

bet365 will give you 12/5 about the Pats winning the Super Bowl, which is being staged at the Dallas Cowboys’ Stadium in Texas on February 6.

The New Orleans Saints +1100 (11/1, 12.00) at Canbet, are now second favourites at some bookmakers and outsiders at others after a hard fought 17-14 win at Atlanta on Monday night, they still may not secure the top seeding in the NFC though as that is still in the Atlanta Falcon’s grasp.

The Atlanta Falcons are at +700 (7/1, 8.00) at Canbet, and if the Falcons earn top seeding then the Falcons 6-1 home record seems to make those odds very good value.

The Baltimore Ravens +1425 (14/1, 14.25) booked their play-off spot with victory over Cleveland and are worthy of a punt on winning the title.

Indianapolis Colts +1600 (16/1) and Green Bay Packers +2000 (20/1) were widely cut after wins for both sides moved them closer to a play-off berth. Kansas City are already through to the post-season but they are still available at +3300 (33/1) to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

NCAA Bowl Games that Matter

December 6th, 2010

The 2010 regular college football season is over, and the final BCS standings mean a national championship game that we’ve seen coming for weeks: No. 1 Auburn versus No. 2 Oregon.

TCU will try to make a non-AQ statement against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO. Many believe Wisconsin, which won consecutive Rose Bowls after the 1998 and 1999 seasons, is the nation’s best one-loss team. If TCU could knock the Badgers off, it would be a major victory for the non-AQ conferences.

In the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma will square off with Connecticut, who are unranked in the BCS standings but representing the Big East. The Huskies lost to Michigan by 20 and Louisville shut them out 26-0 but they’re the best that the Big East has got this year.

Stanford is headed to South Florida to play resurgent Virginia Tech in the Discover Orange Bowl. More than a few folks believe the Cardinal are the nation’s best one-loss team. And the Hokies are riding an 11-game winning streak.

Ohio State will try to reverse its luck versus the SEC in the Allstate Sugar Bowl against Arkansas. The Big Ten would really like to beat the SEC in a BCS bowl game, particularly the Buckeyes, who are winless in nine bowl games versus the SEC.

Two seemingly unstoppable offenses headlined by leading Heisman Trophy candidates: Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and Oregon running back LaMichael James. Just 37 days to wait for this one …
