2010 BCS Bowl Wagering Preview

BCS Bowl wagering concludes the college football season and there could not be a better matchup on Thursday.

#1 Alabama is favored by four points in college football wagering over #2 Texas in a game that can be seen on ABC television.  Here is a look at both teams and their chances of winning the national title.

BCS Bowl wagering has Alabama favored with Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram and a stout defense.  Texas is led by star quarterback Colt McCoy and a number of other top stars.  Texas has the best rushing defense in the country, allowing just 62.2 yards per game.  Alabama will test that defense with Ingram who rushed for 1,542 yards and 15 touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball it will be McCoy and the Texas offense against an Alabama defense that was the best in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 11 points per game as college football wagering stats have it.  McCoy completed 70.5 percent of his passes for an average of 270.2 yards a game and he also rushed for 348 yards this season.

The popular choice in BCS Bowl wagering is Alabama. The Crimson Tide are coming off a rout of Florida in the SEC title game while Texas just squeaked by Nebraska in the Big 12 title game.  Texas does have a few things going for them though in college football wagering. They have an experienced quarterback in McCoy and they also have the underdog label in BCS Bowl wagering.  In six of the last seven years the #2 team has beaten the #1 team in the BCS title game.

BCS Bowl wagering stats indicate that Alabama has played in an NCAA-record 57 bowl games, and is tied with USC for the most wins with 31. Texas has the second-most bowl appearances with 49. While the history is great for both teams, none of it really matters when game time arrives.  There are a number of keys in BCS Bowl wagering from turnovers and penalties to special teams and intangibles.  The talent edge seems to be with Alabama but the intangible edge could be with Texas.

BCS Bowl wagering should be as popular as ever since the top two teams in the country are meeting.  Two unbeaten teams, rich college football histories, star players, great coaches; what else could you want for the last game of the college football wagering season?
