1/3/2008 – Free NCAA Bowl Pick and Hot Chicks: FedEx Orange Bowl: Kansas versus Virginia Tech

We have made a nice turnaround and sit at 9-10 with the Oklahoma West Virginia game still pending (Go Sooners). We think the Orange Bowl will be a great hard nosed football game and we are assigning this a Heidi Klum bet.

1 Unit Bet = The Heidi Klum bet. You know she is hot but her judgement must be suspect cause she married one of the ugliest human beings outside of Scottie Pippen, Sam Cassell and Charlie Weis (of course we took a dig at Notre Dame in this blog). We love the Heidi Klum but something is off with her judgement so we are only comfortable making her a one unit bet.

We are starting off with the arse shot today….

We would love to be her jeweler…

Kansas versus Virginia Tech (-3.5)

This is one of our favorite matchups from a viewing perspective of this Bowl season. Kansas came out of nowhere this year, was the best cover team against the spread all season at 10-1 and have a scrappy QB, a nasty defense and a fun offense but most of all they have the fattest coach in all of college football. This last point can not be overlooked. Trust us on this one. Some pictures in honor of our large hero…the picture is small but the man is not:

Do not mess with this man…if you backed him this year you made money 10 of 11 times. One more shot…

Virginia Tech is tough year in and year out and plays Beamer ball to perfection, which means they play tough defense and incredible special teams and usually eeek out enough on offense to win games. This game sets up a classic matchup of offense against defense… the Hokies’ No. 2 nationally ranked scoring defense (15.5 points against per game) meets the Jayhawks’ No. 2 scoring offense (44.3 points per game). Lets check out the ATS numbers before we get into it…

Kansas
Jayhawks are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Jayhawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games.
Jayhawks are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
Jayhawks are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall.
Jayhawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss.

Virginia Tech
Hokies are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Hokies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on grass.
Hokies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win.
Hokies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.
Hokies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Hokies are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 Thursday games.
Hokies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Hokies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
Hokies are 24-8 ATS in their last 32 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
Hokies are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 games following a ATS win.
Hokies are 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
Hokies are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
Hokies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

Lots of positives to point out for both of these teams. The only thing to really pick on is the Hokies losing their last 5 out of conference games against the spread and losing their last 4 against the spread when they fail to rush for 100 yards in their previous game. We also know that the Hokies managed to cover the spread in six of their last seven games and were favored in all but one of those contests once they figured out how to use their two headed QB machine. Lets break it down…

Coach – This one is tough to call because Beamer is always good and the nation is just learning about Mangino who was voted AP Coach of the Year……No Advantage

Offense – The Jayhawks are second in the nation in scoring with 44.3 points per game and sixth in total yards per game at 491.1. The Hokies average 29.3 points per game and 332.5 yards per game……Advantage Kansas

QB – Kansas has Todd Reesing, a sophomore, has completed 62.6% of his passes for 3,259 yards, with 32 touchdowns and six interceptions. Virginia Tech has a two headed monster at QB with junior Sean Glennon and freshman Tyrod Taylor and neither have the numbers of Reesing……Advantage Kansas

Defense – The Hokies finished the regular season ranked second nationally in points allowed per game at 15.5 and fourth in yardage allowed at 293.3. The Hokies are third in the nation with 43 sacks and tied for fifth with 21 interceptions, returning five for touchdowns. Kansas is close in these categories giving up 16 points per game and 318.2 yards per but close does not win the matchup…..Advantage Virginia Tech

Turnover ratio – Kansas actually caused more turnovers and won the turnover ratio battle +19 to Virginia Tech’s +13…..Advantage Kansas

Special Teams – Virginia Tech rules this category nationally every year. No debate needed…..Advantage Virginia Tech

Motivation – This one is tough because we feel that both teams will be highly motivated. Kansas has had to endure playing a schedule that did not include Oklahoma and Texas and their strength of schedule was 109 out of 119. This is out of their control and they played who was scheduled but they are still hearing that they do not deserve to be in this game, especially after losing to Missouri to end their season. So Kansas has a chip on their shoulder and is in a we are going to prove ourselves mode. We think Mangino will get the boys fired up to come play. Virginia Tech has been playing all year as national heroes after 32 members of their community were gunned down in a senseless murder spree last year. Virginia Tech should have the crowd and the national support….Advantage Virginia Tech

Well this still puts us at a dead heat for who is going to win the game and this brings out our little miracle worker that helped us pick two winners during last year’s bowl season. It has been a statistical fact that Bowl underdogs, who give up less than 100 yards rushing per game, win their bowl game outright 75% of the time. Last year it happened twice….Penn State and USC Trojans put cash in our pocket. So this year Kansas is the underdog and only gives up 89.8 yards per game on defense so our money is with the Jayhawks…Rock, Chalk Jayhawk!!!!!

Also, we said it once and we will say it again…never bet against Mangino.

Put your money on Kansas and if you are feeling bold take the moneyline!!!!

On with the game….

West Virginia versus Oklahoma (-7)

We think this is a game of who has more to prove. West Virginia suffered a catastrophic loss to PITT in their last game and then their coach bailed on them to go to Michigan. Oklahoma was the laughing stock of all bowl teams last year when Boise State pulled one of the biggest upsets of the season. We rode West Virginia this year when we found them relevant and we have learned that they really do not respond well to physical defenses and Pat White and Steve Slaton will bail on games and get hurt when the going gets tough. It took us awhile to warm up to Oklahoma because they were starting a freshmen QB but we are believers that Sam Bradford is a special kid and the real deal. Bradford suffered a concussion early in the Texas Tech loss so the only real loss he was accoutable for was the Colorado upset. Bradford led the nation with a 180.5 quarterback rating. Bradford completed 70.1 percent of his passes for 34 touchdowns on the season. He had a 7-0 TD-to-interception ratio in the Sooners’ three games against ranked teams. Lets take a look at the ATS numbers:

West Virginia
Mountaineers are 3-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Mountaineers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Bowl games.
Mountaineers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in January.
Mountaineers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 bowl games.

Oklahoma
Sooners are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games.
Sooners are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS win.
Sooners are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
Sooners are 13-6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

We hear that West Virginia has been practicing tough and as if nothing happened but we think their PITT loss will simply be too much to overcome. White and Slaton fold in big games and against physical teams (See South Florida loss this year) and Oklahoma is darn good. This spread has moved around a lot because of Rodriguez leaving and Oklahoma is facing some suspensions to their secondary but the guys stepping in all were starters in 2006. Also, secondary play is not as important as the LBs and guys in the trenches when facing West Virginia. This game will be won at the line of scrimmage and we think Oklahoma will be playing for a lot more and will be the more focused team. West Virginia is simply facing too many issues and has the potential to fold real fast in this game.

Oklahoma wins this game big!!!!

Lets end this blog on a good note with one of our favorite pictures of the year. This never gets old….
