THE GOLD SHEET

FIESTA BOWL
WEST VIRGINIA (10-2) vs. OKLAHOMA (11-2)
Wednesday, January 2 Night at Glendale, AZ (Grass Field)
TEAM GP SUR PSR PF PA YR YP T-R-P YR YP T-R-P TO DIFF OPR
W.Virginia12 10-2 7-4 39 17 293 158 62-45-14 108 184 26-12-13+12 5.3 12.8

Oklahoma 41 - West Virginia 27—It was a December to forget in
Morgantown. On the first day of the month, the Mountaineers—then ranked
No. 2 and just one win away from a spot in the BCS title game—were
shocked (as 28½-point home favorite!) by rival Pittsburgh, 13-9. Perhaps
more discouraging, players learned a few weeks later that head coach Rich
Rodriguez, who had steadily steered the West Virginia program to national
prominence in his 7 seasons at the helm, was bolting to become Michigan’s
new mentor. (At TGS press time, longtime assistant Bill Stewart, who is not
considered a top candidate to permanently replace Rodriguez, was serving
as interim HC, and both o.c. Calvin Magee, who will also be moving to Ann
Arbor, & d.c. Jeff Casteel planned to remain through the bowl game).
Oklahoma enters with a little more swagger, having knocked off then topranked
Missouri in the Big XII title game. And Norman scouts say the proud
Sooners are looking at their return to Glendale as a chance to erase the
haunting memory of being shanghaied by underdog Boise State on this
same field a year ago.

Potential psychological edge aside, Oklahoma has some solid
fundamental advantages as well. Many (most?) defenses simply aren’t fast
enough to keep up with the Mountaineers’ run-oriented spread offense.
However, the speed & depth of the Sooner stop unit will help keep big
gainers from WV stars QB Pat White & RB Steve Slaton to a minimum. In
fact, it’s the better-balanced Oklahoma attack that figures to do the majority
of the damage in this game. While White remains a suspect down-field
passer, Sooner RS frosh Sam Bradford (70%, 34 TDP, only 7 ints.) throws
with confidence behind an OL that allowed only 11 sacks. The physical
Oklahoma receivers rate a MAJOR edge over their Mountaineer
counterparts, and Bradford is supported by a productive rushing attack.
Injured RS frosh RB DeMarco Murray (764 YR & 13 TDs) won’t be available,
but sr. Allen Patrick & soph Chris Brown (combined 1488 YR on 5 ypc) are
proven performers. Plus, although OU drives rarely fall short of end zone,
sr. PK Garrett Hartley (converted 29 of 32 FG attempts last 2 years) rarely
misses when they do.

(DNP...SR: Oklahoma 2-1)

THE MAX

Fiesta Bowl @Glendale, Arizona
January 2, 2008, 8:30 PM EST
West Virginia vs. Oklahoma
Opening Line: Oklahoma –6, 65
Current Line: Oklahoma –7½, 63½

Analysis by Erik Scheponik
I write this the day that West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez has accepted theMichigan job, so obviously there is a lot of unknowns here. Of all the possibly disinterested bowl teams we’ll talk about in this issue, the Mountaineers rate the KINGS. All they had to do was win as a 4 TD favorite against Pitt at home in the season finale,and they had a date with Ohio St. for all the Marbles in the BCS Championship. They blew it in grand fashion, losing 13-9, their high-powered offense accounting for only 183 yards, 130 less than any other game the last two seasons. Now they must attempt to circle the wagons and beat one of the nation’s very best programs knowing that their coach has just left them for seemingly greener pastures? No small feat indeed. There is some historical support for WVU here, as bowl dogs that were favored by 13.5 or more in their last game are 20-7 ATS, and bowl dogs off of a SU favorite loss are 45-26-1 ATS. However, they have a very big emotional mountain to climb here. Oh yeah, their opponent isn’t chopped liver, either The Oklahoma Sooners return to the scene of their historical loss to Boise St. last January. The Sooners have played a tougher schedule than has WVU, and they have the defensive speed to match up with and a month to prepare for the WVU spread offense.They handed a good Missouri team their only two losses of the season, both by double digits, and Bob Stoops is an excellent big game coach, as he’s posted an 11-6 record against top 10 rated teams.They allow only 2.8 yards per rush, and their defense runs and tackles with the best of them, two key qualities when facing West Virginia’s speed option. On offense, Sam Bradford is one of the better QB’s you’ll ever see, and he has plenty of weapons at his disposal behind one of the nation’s best offensive lines. The special teams, as usual, are excellent under Stoops, as PK Garrett Hartley has made 29 out of 32 FG’s Check the status of Oklahoma CB/KR Reggie Smith, as he broke his toe against Missouri.This line jumped a point Sunday after the Rodriguez news. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up on the other side of 8. Bob Stoops rates a solid edge in preparation against most opponents, let alone ateam without a coach. Need to monitor the news from WVU camp over the next couple of weeks, and will weigh those factors against final price, but for now I’ll side with the chalk. Oklahoma by 13

Re: Wednesday Service plays

TOM SCOTT'S SUPER DOG PLAY!

Southern Illinois at DRAKE - 8:00 PM EST
Play ON: #769 SOUTHERN ILLINOIS plus the points

I'm not that hard to figure out when it comes to picking basketball games. Give me an underdog who has dominated the series every time. Such is the case with the Salukis tonight. The Egyptian Dogs have beaten Drake 32 times in the last 36 meetings and were favored in 34 of those 36 games. (SIU was +1 and +2 in the other two games, never +4!) Although Southern Illinois has had considerable trouble getting up an over the number as a favorite, the Carbondale Kids shine as underdogs posting a 32-13 ATS mark in that role since the 2001 season started. Included in that 32-13 mark is a 26-9 ATS log when coming off a win, a 20-4 record when the opponent is off a SUATS win and a perfect 9-0 to the number when the enemy is off back-to-back SU and ATS wins. All of those trends apply here. It's the old DDDIAAA theory here. Dominating Dogs Do It Again And Again.

PREDICTION: SOUTHERN ILLINOIS 74 - Drake 67

Re: Wednesday Service plays

AAA

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Charlotte Bobcats - Bulls Pick -110 | Unit Value: 2

Note: I am not a big proponent of betting bad NBA teams and I am not even close to doing that when they play on the road. But there is reason to believe that the Bulls are no longer in that category. This team is loaded with talent and has been the biggest mystery in the NBA this year. But that is all changing now with the new interim head coach Jim Boylan, who has won his first two of three games, and coming off a close cover last game verses a very good Orlando squad. Boylan's most significant move since taking over the team has been to start bringing Gordon off the bench. Gordon, the NBA Sixth Man of the Year as a rookie in 2004-05, started the first 26 games of the season and was averaging 17.6 points while shooting 38.9 percent from the field. He averaged 21.4 points and shot 45.5 percent last season. In three games in a reserve role under Boylan, Gordon has averaged 31.7 points and shot 56.5 percent, including 8-of-15 from 3-point range. He scored a season-high 39 points in Monday's defeat. The Bulls have scored in triple digits in each of Boylan's first three games, they did that just 6 times through their first 26 games. Boylan's laid back way of coaching has given this team peace and they are responding to it. Tonight they play a team that they have handled easily and will try for their 4th straight win over the Bobcats. The Cats are just not that good, having covered just 4 times over their last 16 tries. They are coming off a big win at home last time on the court against a below average Indiana Pacer team. The Pacers do not play D and the Bobcats do not do so well against the better D's of the league. While Chicago's numbers don't put them in that category, they are stepping it up now and they are very capable at doing so. Charlotte is not a good rebounding team and when they are shooting well, they don't win. The Bulls are bigger and more aggressive than Charlotte and especially now, as finally this team is having some fun. Oddsmakers are going to have to re-adjust their thinking about this Bulls Team, but until they do, they will be a look-at squad for me. In my best estimation, this is a bargain line and available at some books at +1.

Re: Wednesday Service plays

Lockoftheday

Today's Lock: West Virginia +4.5 (1st Half)

Seven straight wins for us; make no mistake, this is the best time of the year for betting on sports. We like West Virginia tonight in the Fiesta Bowl. We get the best value by betting the 1st half where West Virginia is still getting +4.5 points. 14-10 we win! 21-17 we win! West Virginia's spread attack is so difficult to stop. Pat White is the fastest quarterback in football. Steve Slaton might be the fastest running back! The Mountaineers will score the football tonight and keep this game close.

Zach Parise had a goal and an assist for the Devils in their 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday night. The Isles won as -103 home underdogs as the game played over the 5-goal total listed by oddsmakers. Current streak: Florida has lost 2 straight games.

Re: Wednesday Service plays

Mike Volpe

Virginia Mountaineers (O/U 64.5) versus Oklahoma Sooners -7 There are two ways to look at this game. The first is that West Virginia will be so down after their inexplicable loss at home to pathetic Pittsburgh, that kept them out of the _title_ game, that the Mountaineers will just fold their tents and get run out of Phoenix Stadium The second is that West Virginia will come out firing and take out their frustration onthe Oklahoma Sooners. I am choosing option number 2. If West Virginia had won that Pittsburgh game, THEY would be the seven point favorites in this game. I cannot believe one game can make a team fourteen points worse. The Mountaineers are loaded on both sides of the balls. Pat White’s hand will be healed and I look for West Virginia to add to Oklahoma’s horrible Bowl game legacy.

5* Play on the West Virginia Mountaineers +7

LineCrusher

4*Dallas -5.5 over Golden State
Dallas is 13-5 in conference play and 14-3 at home so far this season. The Mavs already beat the Warriors 120-115 at Golden State November 8th. Last season Dallas was supposed to challenge for the NBA _title_ but in a shocking 1st round upset Golden State eliminated Dallas 4-2. Highly doubt the Mavs have forgotten last seasons bitter 1st round playoff ouster by the Warriors.

3*Middle Tennessee State +16 over Western Kentucky (8:00 Eastern, time change)
Percentage play on Middle Tennessee State as a double digit conference road underdog in the first meeting of the season playing with double revenge from last season having lost both games vs Western Kentucky. The Blue Raiders are also a computer play tonight.

3*Evansville +12.5 over Northern Iowa
Percentage play on Evansville as a double digit conference road underdog in the first meeting of the season playing with double revenge from last season having lost both games vs Northern Iowa. The Purple Aces are also a computer play tonight.

3*Cal Riverside +15.5 over Pacific
Percentage play on Cal Riverside as a double digit conference road underdog in the first meeting of the season playing with double revenge from last season having lost both games vs Pacific. The Highlanders are also a computer play tonight.

College Football
WVU +7.5 over Oklahoma

The two BCS Games that already were played were blowouts by USC and Georgia. These two teams are evenly matched and all the hype around WVU's coach going to Michigan doesn't mean these players are just going to pack it in. This team has been together all year and knows what they have to do to win. Oklahoma lost a heartbreaker in this game last year against Boise State in what was the best bowl game in College Football history. I doubt this year will be as good, but the game should be very close. West Virginia actually has a defense this year and they will be out to prove that the Pitt loss was a fluke and will save their season with a good performance tonight. Take WVU.

****BEST BET****

Oklahoma (-7.5) VS. West Virginia: You have to wonder
how West Virginia will react after coach Rich
Rodriguez bolted to Michigan but this team has way too
much talent to lose handily against a Sooners squad
that is not as invincible as they have been. The
Mountaineers can run the ball better than anyone and
they will be able to control the clock and grind out
yardage all game. THE PICK: West Virginia (+7.5)
