Best bet for me today is Wash to beat and cover v Ok St. Yeah they beat rival Okl to get in to bowl, but that looks far less impressive after Clemson. Apart from the top 2 the Big 12 is poor right now Sad

Too many people jumped on the Ducks bandwagon.  The performance by FSU was brutal in the play-off.  Tonight's result by Ohio was no fluke.  An excellent performance by the Buckeyes
Report Hank Hill January 14, 2015 8:47 PM GMT
Well done Kriskin. I hold my hands up as one of those that didn't rate OSU. I still think if they weren't forced in to playing Jones, they don't win the whole thing, but we'll never know now. I think it was OSU playing great and the ducks not being able to stop the run that obviously made a huge impact. However, the ducks did not look right on offense. They even managed 4 turnovers but did not capitalize.

I thought that was poor running in the td at the end. What I could not fathom though was the decision with 7 mins remaining and 15 pts down to punt the ball away! The d showed they could barely get a stop, but on 4th and 7 he punts. That was crazy. They eventually do get the ball back, but not til there is now only 3 mins left. Surely you have to stand up and go for it on that 4th down. A very quick score there and you could still kick to OSU with good clock left.

To be honest I think this champ game came a year or 2 too late for Oregon.

I have to say I am very disappointed that the Betfair sportsbook does not appear to be offering Total Points lines on NCCA American Football Bowl matches in 2016. There are markets available on the Exchange but obviously the lack of liquidity in these markets is not advantageous to bettors. William Hill, Bet365 and Ladbrokes and probably all other sportsbooks worth their salt are offering Total Points.  Why not Betfair sportsbook?
Report Hank Hill December 19, 2016 7:39 PM GMT
They don't care about the college markets any more - current bowl game still suspended on exchange Sad
Report WillyMoOne December 19, 2016 10:55 PM GMT
It really surprises me - the game is live on TV, there is 32K matched on the Moneyline, 2.4K on the spread and 3K on the total. 

I asked the question on Saturday (via Question Reference # 161219-003095) and they finally came back to me today saying "they think that Total Points market would not generate enough interest".  I do not believe this for one minute frankly.  I think they are just chickensh1t.  They are offering Total Points/Match Result doubles but not Total Point lines?????? 

On this evening's game I had under 69.5 and Tulsa to win but I was limited to £45.50.  I would have had much more if I could have but it is about to go over so their cowardice saved me some bankroll!

Not sure what to make of the final. Clemson were flawless against Ohio State and against Bama last time their offense torched the Tide defense and they have a better unit this year. Feels like their time, but just so hard to pull the trigger against Bama. you around Hank? How do you see it?

Hopefully I saved you some money Jedi. Well done Tigers, deserved a title for the level they've been at these past couple of years. Proper beast of a program. Bama will be back, been reading their recruiting class for next year is number 1 by a distance.

Don't understand some people's comments regarding the standard of play in college, 95% of em will never be pro quality. The beauty of it all is the passion of the players and the crowds. Nothing quite like it. You'll never get the same atmosphere in the NFL or NBA as what you get a mad college game. Great to watch imo.
Report jedi sophie January 10, 2017 2:21 PM GMT
Saved me a right few quid because as soon as they went up early i laid the lot back for a good profit,not a chance if hadnt heard the whispers...Laugh
Though pregame a few of the hacks seemed to have jumped ship. After a quarter i couldnt get out my head that Clemson quarterback just looked far more dangerous,even though were down.

Just about proved correct.Terrific game,thoroughly enjoyed it but a struggle at work today.

another thing i really appreciated was coverage after game,my main gripe with NFL is how they just go straight off air after TNF or MNF,no coverage aftermatch at all,drives me nuts!!

Steelers your only preseason runner,is mine though now nice green Cowboys n Packers.

Big weekend ahead.
