THE GOLD SHEET ( 7-7)

INDEPENDENCE BOWL
COLORADO (6-6) vs. ALABAMA (6-6)
Sunday, December 30 Night at Shreveport, LA (FieldTurf)
TEAM GP SUR PSR PF PA YR YP T-R-P YR YP T-R-P TO DIFF OPR
Colorado 12 6-6 6-6 28 29 151 226 41-19-19 128 262 44-18-24 -4 -.4 8.2

*Alabama 24 - Colorado 23—

It’s hard to envision either of these two 6-
6 teams—both looking toward the future—escaping the gravity of the other.
Alabama (only 2-7-2 vs. the spread) lost its last four games and has ended up
in the same bowl it lost 34-31 LY to Oklahoma State. Hard-driving HC Nick
Saban (only 3-5 SU in bowls) is thankful for the extra days of bowl practice, but
the “Nicktator” has railed at his players near the end of the season for not doing
things “the right way.” Saban has commitments from a large recruiting class and
has reportedly told his team that many current players will not be back in 2008.
In Boulder, the atmosphere has been a little different, with Colorado happy to
be back in the postseason after missing the bowls completely LY despite having
gone to the Big XII title game 4 of the 5 previous seasons. But enthusiastic
coach Dan Hawkins had one of the youngest teams in the country in 2007,
complete with a redshirt freshman QB (son Cody), two true frosh starters in his
OL, and a slew of young receivers. Plus, the young Buffaloes snapped their 1-
4 late-season slide with a rousing 41-point second-half comeback to beat
defenseless rival Nebraska 65-51.

Both opposing QBs were inconsistent (Cody Hawkins 56.4%, 19 TDs, 15
ints.; John Parker Wilson 54.9%, 15 TDs, 11 ints.), both teams struggled
converting on third down (CU 34.5%; Bama 37.0%), and both suffered from
some inconsistent kicking (Buffs only 9 of 16 FGs of 30-49 yards; Crimson Tide
only 10 of 18). But on defense, both teams are speckled with outstanding
playmakers, as CU LB Jordon Dizon was second in the nation in tackles; Bama’s
255-pound true frosh LB Rolando McLain was an all-SEC frosh. Buffs’ CB
Terrence Wheatley (back from toe fracture) had 5 ints.; Tide S Rashad Johnson
had 6. Bama DE Wallace Gilberry had 9 sacks; Buff DT George Hypolite 6.
Alabama has played in five bowls this century, with the final margins only 1,
1, 4, 3 & 3 (!), with the Red Elephants winning only two.
(DNP...SR: EVEN 1-1)

POINTWISE ( 4-10)

ALABAMA (6-6) vs COLORADO (6-6)
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30
8:00 PM EST -- ESPN TELEVISION
AOPR AVS FDS RUSH PASS TRN EDGE TO:
Alabama ..... 46.8 .. 27-22 .. 23-18 .. 151-128 .. 222-213.. + 4 . Alabama
Colorado .... 44.5 .. 27-28 .. 17-19 .. 152-128 .. 227-262.. - 4 . by 3.7 Pts

ANALYSIS
These 2 collegiate stalwarts meet for just the 3rd time, with the previous 2 also
coming in the post-season. In the '69 Liberty Bowl, the Buffaloes of Colorado
prevailed over the Crimson Tide of Alabama, 47-33. The Tide snagged a bit of
revenge, by winning the '91 Blockbuster Bowl, 30-25, as a 2-pt chalk. This
season saw the arrival of Nick Saban at Tuscaloosa. He brought LSU a share
of the national title just 4 years ago, before moving on to an ill-fated stretch
with the Miami Dolphins. And, altho 'Bama has had its moments, including an
amazing 41-17 rout of then 20th-ranked Tennessee, along with a mere 3-pt
loss to currently 4th-ranked Georgia, & a 7-pt loss to now 2nd-ranked LSU,
the fact of the matter is that the Tide hasn't won since that blowout of the Vols.
Thus, a 6-6 record, despite 9 returning offensive starters, with nary a loss by
more than a TD. Extremely competitive, but a classic underachiever, exemplified
by a loss to La-Monroe, as a 24½ pt favorite. Like the Tide, Colorado, is
also a difficult team, in which to get a proper read. The Buffs' highlight was
that shocking 27-24 upset of 3rd-ranked Oklahoma, as 23-pt dogs. And it was
no fluke, as CU held the Sooners to 12 FDs, while holding a 381-230 yd edge.
That win completed a 3-game stretch, in which Colorado held a combined FD
edge of 73-28. The low point? Try a 55-10 home loss to Missouri, with a 402
yd deficit. QBs Wilson of UA & Hawkins of CU have posted similar stats, &,
as can be seen above they match each other perfectly in rushing "O" & "D".
Note 'Bama's last 5 bowl games being decided by 1, 1, 4, 3, & 3 pts SU. That
is just about what should be expected in this meeting. So, we will take the pts.
PROPHECY: COLORADO 27 - Alabama 25 RATING: 4

Re: Sunday Service Plays

THE SPORTS MEMO ( 12-2 )


Alabama -3.5 vs. Colorado O/U 51 Recommendation: Over
Sunday, December 30, 8 pm EST (ESPN) Shreveport, La
The Independence Bowl is not a treasured destination for SECschools, especially ones that pay their new coach $4 million peryear. Such is life, however, and Nick Saban and Alabama are backin Shreveport for the second consecutive year. The Tide wasa 34-31 loser to Oklahoma State in last year’s game. Coloradois back in a bowl this year after suffering through a 2-10 seasona year ago. They are probably a little more excited to be inShreveport than the Tide, but the edge probably isn’t that great.I would expect Alabama to have a good effort as Saban tries toend his first season in Tuscaloosa with a winning record. Theseteams are actually pretty similar this season. Both had some niceconference wins, some bad losses, and some near misses. Coloradohad a win over then number one ranked Oklahoma early inthe year and also had a road win at Texas Tech. Alabama’s bestwin came against Tennessee, but they also battled LSU tough ina seven-point loss. The Tide ended the season on a four gamelosing streak, dropping all four games by a touchdown or less.They really struggled on offense, scoring just 36 points in theirlast three losses to Auburn, Louisiana-Monroe and MississippiState. These two teams are also similar statistically using thetrue rushing and passing numbers. They are both about averagerunning the ball, a little below average throwing it and about averageon defense. Colorado has better offensive numbers, whileBama has a little better numbers defensively. In looking at thismatchup, I expect to see a wide open game. Neither team reallyhas anything to lose or gain in this game and the trend amongbowl games in recent years has definitely been towards highscoringgames. Colorado’s Dan Hawkins has always been a wideopen offensive coach, and in the bowl atmosphere, I expect thatto be even more evident. Alabama should be able to throw theball against this Colorado defense that allowed over 400 yardspassing in three of its last four games, something I am sure hascaught the attention of the Alabama coaching staff. After a solidsophomore season, Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilsondefinitely regressed this year. Some of that can be attributedto injuries to key players on offense, but Wilson also failed tomake some throws that he made the year before. He needs asolid game here to cement his status as the starter next year,and this is a defense that he can certainly take advantage of.Wilson will also have everyone on the offense around him healthyand eligible for this game, another plus. Colorado’s offense isled by Cody Hawkins, the son of the coach. He has also had anup and down season, but ended with two solid performancesin the Buffaloes’ last two games. In fact, Colorado scored 93points in those two contests. Choosing the winner of this gameis tough, it will likely be decided late in the game, but both sidesshould light up the scoreboard and push it easily Over the total.

Re: Sunday Service Plays

NORTHCOAST POWER SWEEPS:  ( 11-3)


This is the only bowl matching two 6-6 tms TY and is the 3rd all-time meeting (1-1) with both priortilts in bowls. They last met in the ‘91 Blockbuster Bowl and Bama won 30-25 (-2). CU did not make abowl LY & is 12-15 all-time. UA is making their NCAArecord 55th bowl appearance and their 4th bowltrip in a row. This is UA’s 3rd trip to the Independence Bowl (1-1 SU, 0-2 ATS) and their 2nd trip in a rowto Shreveport. Bama is on a 1-5 ATS run in bowls. Saban went 3-5 SU & ATS in bowls at LSU & Mich St.This will mark CU’s 1st Independence Bowl berth, but they are on a 7-3 SU & 8-2 ATS run in the postseason. HC Hawkins is 2-2 SU & ATS in bowls (all w/Boise St). CU fans are not known for traveling &might not be well represented again due to the 1,071 mile trip & the late night Sun start. Bama may alsohave trouble selling tickets since they went to this bowl LY and finished the reg ssn with 4 straight lossesincluding their 6th in a row to rival Aub. CU has faced 6 bowl caliber tms TY & has gone 2-4 SU & ATSbeing outscored on avg 29-17 & outgained 346-294. UA faced 9 bowl caliber tms with a 3-6 SU & 1-7-1ATS record but was only outscored 25-24 and outgained 355-350. Both schools ply’d FSU and both lostSU & ATS, but CU was held to -27 rush yds (-1.1). CU has 6 senior starters with 15 upperclassmen(68%) and Bama has 7 seniors with 12 upperclassmen (55%). CU is 4-10 ATS (including bowls) as anAD & the Tide was 1-2 ATS as a AF TY and finished the ssn on a 1-8-1 ATS run.Colorado took care of business vs rival Neb to become bowl eligible in their ssn finale & secured thisslot when Fresno beat K-St. They dropped 65 pts on the Huskers (most scored in a single gm S/’95). Itwas a tale of 2 ssns as CU stood 4-2 outgaining foes by 76 ypg with a win over then #3 OU (snapped 14gm losing streak vs ranked tms). Buffs were outscored by 15 ppg & outgained by 97 ypg in a 5 wk period(1-4) before the ssn final. CU has our #48 off avg 28 ppg & 377 ypg. Buffs returned 9 starters on off fromLY’s 2-10 tm that avg 16.3 ppg (lowest in 22 yrs). HC Hawkins’ son Cody earned the starting QB job butunderstandably struggled early but had a 8-1 ratio over the L/4 gms. The success of the off relies heavilyon RB Charles. Five of their 6 losses came when Charles failed to reach 100 yds. The OL avg 6’4” 305paving the way for 150 ypg (3.9) all’g 16 sks. The CU def has our #53 ranking all’g 29 ppg, 389 ypg withjust 19 sks. The DL avg 6’3” 268 all’g 128 rush ypg (4.0). The LB corps was hampered by inj’s early inthe ssn and is missing 50% of the 2 deep. LB Dizon was named Big 12 Def POY with a league leading12.4 tpg (#2 NCAA). CB Wheatley, who is the leader of the secondary, missed the L/2 gms with an injbut should be 100% (#2 all-time int leader w/14). CU ranks #24 in our pass eff def rankings all’g 262 ypg(57%) with a 24-15 ratio vs a very tough slate of opposing QB’s. K Eberhart has a strong leg, hitting 8-12from 40+ (L/54) but will not have the advantage of the high altitude. CU has our #21 ST’s ranking.LY Tide alum Mike Shula was fired after a 6-6 reg ssn which resulted in a trip to the IndependenceBowl and Bama brought in Saban for an unheard of salary to save the program from mediocrity. TheTide proved that Rome wasn’t built in a day and return to Shreveport after taking a nosedive in the 2Hof the ssn including a humiliating home loss to ULM. Tide QB Wilson led the Tide’s #58 offense but waserratic and wilted under heavy pressure finishing the ssn with a 1-5 ratio in the L/3. RB’s Grant, Coffee,Upchurch and Johns were all given opportunities, but Grant proved to be the most consistent starting9 gms. WR Hall finished #2 in the SEC in rec ypg in a strong senior yr. The OL suffered greatly when2 starters missed 4 gms in the highly publicized textbook scandal and all’d 24 sks (5.5%) with the tmrushing for 151 ypg (4.0). The defense finished #29 in our overall rankings and #39 in our pass D rankingsall’g opposing QB’s to complete just 54% with a 17-17 ratio. Bama has our #17 ST’s rankings.Nick Saban has not quite been the savior that the Crimson Tide alumni had hoped for. A 6-6year with a season ending 4 game losing streak is unacceptable. While Colorado also comes in witha 6-6 mark their fans are pleased with the progress HC Hawkins has shown. Saban made “disaster”remarks after the loss to ULM and no one has more pressure for a feel good win to save face forrecruiting. Bama has the talent edge, the need, the crowd, and the fear of embarrassment.

FORECAST: ALABAMA 30 Colorado 17 RATING: 2★

Re: Sunday Service Plays

WINNING POINTS ( 8-6)

INDEPENDENCE BOWL

ALABAMA over COLORADO by 7

This was hardly the season that Alabama was looking for in Nick Saban’s debut,
with his own unfortunate comments late in the year drawing even more national
attention to the struggles that the Crimson Tide have had, and then a USA Today
article showing how the program was #2 in the nation in coaching dollars spent per
win this season. In fairness, however, while things were disappointing they were not
all that awful, with Alabama not losing a game all season by more than a touchdown.
The first bottom line is that an influx of talent is needed before the building
process gets underway, but the second bottom is that the Crimson Tide still
have more talent than this opponent, which gets buoyed by an intense focus and
what should be a major edge in fan support. Like Saban, Dan Hawkins also needs
some solid recruiting classes to get things turned around in Boulder, and while
pulling an upset of Oklahoma is a sign of the capacity of this coaching staff, there
were far too many games in which the Buffaloes were not able to compete. The pass
defense allowed over 400 yards in four of the last seven games, and in the last two
home games allowed Missouri and Nebraska to top 50 points and 600 yards, a real
sign of a lack of depth as they basically wore out. That means plenty of operating
room for D. J. Hall and an Alabama offense that will finally enjoy some breathing
room off of that difficult S.E.C. schedule to make some game-breaking plays.
ALABAMA 31-24.

EROCKMONEY

Independence - Colorado (+4) v. Alabama

Bama really stumbled at the end of the season and I expect it to continue into the bowl game. Colorado plays strong defense and has really started to pick up coach Hawkins offense of late. This one will be tight throughout and I'll take the Buffaloes with the points.

Pick: Alabama by 1

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Sports Gambling Hotline

We feel it is quite important for the Eagles to end this season on an upnote, and wins and covers in their last pair at Dallas and New Orleans is a good start for the much-maligned Donovan McNabb, and head coach Andy Reid.

The Philly-faithful should leave the Linc happy today, as we expect the Eagles to close the year with their third straight win and cover.

Buffalo appears to have cashed it in for the year, as they were up 14-0 last week at home against the Giants, then were promptly routed 38-21, as the Bills have now lost their last pair of games, and 4 of their last 6 both straight up and against the math.

Buffalo's offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild is moving on to Colorado State to take over the head coaching reins, and with Trent Edwards starting to implode - just a 37% completion rate the last 2 weeks, and 3 interceptions last week against the Giants, expect Philly DC Jim Johnson to dial up some different looks that will fluster whomever is under center for Buffalo today.

Lay the lumber as the Eagles close the campaign strong.

Play on Philly.

5* PHILADELPHIA

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Nite Owl Sports

Sport: NFL Football
Game: Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers
Pick: 3 units (Normal) ATS: Green Bay Packers -4

We like Green Bay in this game up to key # of -4, even though they are locked in as the #2 seed in NFC playoffs, regardless of the outcome of this game. After last week's disaster in Chicago, Packer coaches and players are anxious to re-establish their season long positive momentum with a solid win here, and unlike most of the other playoff teams playing under similar circumstances, there has been little talk of players being held out or seeing "limited duty." With back-up QB Aaron Rodgers being held out of last week's game due to injury even after that game got out of hand, and listed as "very questionable" for this game, it appears that Brett Favre will be taking most of the snaps for the Pack. Speaking of injuries, Lions lost their top RB Kevin Jones (600 YR and 8 rushing TDs) in last week's narrow escape at home over a lousy KC team. Detroit has to be on a mental "downer" even after that win, after having gone from the "penthouse" (at 6-2) early in the season to the "outhouse" at 7-8 going into their final game, courtesy of an ugly 6 game losing steak at the worst possible time. Included in that streak were three bad losses in their L3 road games, giving up a steadily increasing number of points each time, first with 31 at Arizona, then 42 at Minny, and finally 51 in their thrashing at San Diego two weeks ago. Lions are just 2-5 ATS TY on the road, including those last three "no shows." Contrast that to Green Bay, which is 6-1 SU and 5-1-1 ATS at home TY, and has beaten detroit 15 straight times on the "frozen tundra" at Lambeau Field. Favre really carved up the lions' secondary in the earlier meeting of these two teams in detroit TY, and while the weather won't approach the ideal conditions at climate controlled Ford Field, it's predicted to be much more "playable" than what the Pack had to endure last Sunday in the "windy city." We are releasing this pick now and urging customers to get in their bets ASAP on Green Bay at - 4 or better, as we think that's the best price we will get and that the line will rise past the key # of - 4. We will have an update on this pick later in the week as game day approaches.

Re: Sunday Service Plays

AAA

St Louis/Arizona Over 48

Note: On this very unpredictable final day of the NFL Season, this is going to be my only play and this one has been very predictable over the last 3 games. This will be my 4th consecutive OVER play with the Cardinals onthe field. Hopefully, this will be the fourth straight winner. Injuries have taken away the Cardinals two best pass rushers and several key members of their secondary. Because of that, they cannot stop anyone and have allowed 27, 37, 21, 42, 31 and 27 points during its last six games. The AZ D was no prize peior to these injuries but now they are just a shell of a team on D. What they lack stopping the opposition, they make up on offense, putting up very similar numbers. The Rams can score and they have done so at a fairly nice clip, especially verses D's as bad as the Cardinals. The first game between these two saw 65 points back in late October and in that game we saw a lot of passes. We will today as well, and with neither team going nowhere, there will not be any intensity in this contest but we should see some fun. Sometimes it can be just this simple and it will be today. Despite the high number to achieve, I am playing OVER one more time

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Larry Ness' Weekend Wipeout Winner-NFL (8-1 or 88.9% FB run since Thanksgiving!)

My Weekend Wipeout Winner is on the Cle Browns at 1:00 ET. Barring either the Browns/49ers or Titans/Colts contest resulting in the NFL's first tie since 2002, Cleveland will need Tennessee to lose in Indianapolis on Sunday night in order for the Browns to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2002. That being said, I have little doubt the Browns will "take of business" and then let the chips fall here they may. During the preseason, Browns' fans and many pundits were calling for the Browns to start rookie QB Brady Quinn. Luckily, Romeo Crennel's smarter than the fans and pundits. He dumped Charlie Frye after Week 1 but instead of turning to Quinn, he went Derek Anderson, who's responded beautifully (3,635 passing yards, 28 TD, 18 INT). I know he had a 'meltdown' LW with four INTs but he's led the Browns to a 6-0 SU and ATS mark at home, with a 13-5 ratio and 95.2 rating. Not counting the team's 8-0 "Snow Bowl" win over Buffalo, the Browns have averaged 35.8 PPG at home under Anderson. Lewis is rejuvenated at RB (1,176 / 4.3 / 9 TDs), averaging 110.2 YPG over his last six. Edwards (77 catches / 15 TDs) has had a career year at WR and TE Winslow has finally stayed healthy (78 catches). As for the 49ers, it's the final game of another dreadful season. It's made worse by the fact that Shaun Hill, a breath of 'fresh air' at QB the last three weeks (5-1 ratio / 101.3 rating), is expected to miss with a back problem. The starter is expected to be Chris Weinke, who is 2-17 as an NFL starter! Are you kidding me? Weekend Wipeout Winner on the Cle Browns.

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Larry Ness | NBA Sides

triple-dime LAL -2.0

Analysis:
It's been awhile since a Boston/LA game meant this much. The Staples Center will be jumping for this game and the schedule makers couldn't have made things easier for the Lakers. Boston's 25-3 mark is truly impressive, as is their plus-13.6 point-differential (it would be an all-time record!). However, this is Boston's FOURTH game in just five nights. Boston is 3-0 so far on the west coast but come on? The first two wins came at Sacramento and Seattle, which are a combined 20-38. Last night's win in Utah wasn't secured until the game's final seconds and unless you aren't aware, the Jazz have now not only lost 11 of their last 14 but were coming off a Friday night loss in LA to the Lakers (123-109)! Pierce (21.1-5.3-5.0), Allen (19.0-4.0-3.2) and Garnett (18.9-10.5) have been great plus the Celtics are allowing opponents 86.7 PPG and to shoot just 41.7 percent from the field. Both marks lead the league. However, depth is an issue with this team and a FOURTH game in five days (traveling from Salt Lake City, no less), won't help. Phil Jackson was on his team's case when it dropped five of seven from Nov 21-Dec 2. However, the Lakers enter this game having won 10 of 12 (2-point loss at GS and four-point loss at Clev). The Lakers are 9-3 ATS during that run and 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS at home (lone ATS loss was a backdoor cover by SA). Kobe's sharing the ball more these days, while Bynum's become a credible presence in the middle (12.4-10.0). LA's depth will be a major factor here plus Kobe, who was treated poorly by the Boston fans in LA's 107-94 loss in Boston on Nov 23, just may have some "payback" on his mind. 24* LA Lakers.

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Bobby Maxwell

Today we've got a winner coming at you with the Vikings as they should wipe out the Broncos today.

The Vikings need this win and need some help from the Cowboys to beat Washington in order to get to the playoffs. Minnesota is going to hold up its end of the bargain, but don't expect the Cowboys to rise up and beat the Redskins.

Minnesota lost 32-21 as a six-point home favorite last week in a game that could have wrapped up a playoff spot. The reason to play the Vikings is the Redskins' against the Cowboys is at the same time, so the Vikings still need to show up and play well.

RB Adrian Peterson was shut down by the 'Skins lasat week, gaining just 27 yards on nine carries. But today he gets to run against the hapless Broncos' defense. Denver lost 23-3 on Christmas Eve in San Diego and managed just 225 total yards.

Denver is just 9-22 ATS overall dating back to 2006, 3-10 ATS in Denver, 2-5 ATS as an underdog this season and 2-10 ATS against teams with a winning record.
Minnesota has played well the second half of the season and is 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS in the last six.

The Broncos just don't care and showed it in their last two games. Minnesota needs this one to have any shot. Look for Peterson to run wild, gain about 150 yards on the ground and lead the Vikings to a 28-14 victory.

3* MINNESOTA

UNLV to wrap up a three-day event with a win over Minnesota

Third game in three nights for both these teams, and while the first two games weren't tough for either one, the third game is on the Rebels home court and that should prove the difference in this one.

These teams have met in December the last two years with the home team getting the win each time but the road team cashing the ticket.

UNLV steps up the defense on the home court, allowing just 62.1 points per game and 37.7 percent shooting. The good news for the Rebels is they've blown out the opposition the first two games of this three-day tourney and have been able to rest the starters significantly.

The Rebels are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall and this team can play some defense. Minnesota is 2-7 ATS in its last nine Sunday games.
The Gophers are in Vegas, playing their third game in three nights. Too many distractions for Tubby Smith's team. Let's take the home team Rebels in this one.

2* UNLV

SUNDAY'S PICK
50 DIME 2-TEAM TEASER

PHILADELPHIA

SAN DIEGO


Reduce the points you are laying with both favorites, Philadelphia and San Diego.

Note from Steve Budin:

Using the traditional 6 points you get in a two-team teaser, this Laughlin, Nevada-based group wants you to reduce the points you are laying with Philadelphia at home versus Buffalo and reduce the points you are laying with San Diego at Oakland.
