The college football bowl season continues with the Fiesta Bowl featuring Collin Klein and Kansas State against that high-scoring Oregon offense that averages 50ppg. There's also a big college hoops games featuring the number two team in the nation and a sizzling NBA matchup on Thursday night.
Let's get rolling!
Kansas State (11-1 SU, 9-2-1 ATS, 7-4 O/U) vs. Oregon (11-1 SU, 7-5 ATS, 7-4 O/U)
Oregon had a chance to play on Jan. 7, but a loss to Stanford at home in overtime, 17-14, cost them that opportunity. Kansas State lost their chance when they fell at Baylor, 52-24 on the road, giving 12 on Nov. 17. They bounced back with a win over Texas at home, 42-24, giving 10.5. Collin Klein finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting but may have cost himself a shot to win it with a season-worst three interceptions and 39 rushing yards against Baylor. He did bounce back to run for 103 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-24 win over Texas. Kansas State is 6-1-1 ATS following a SU win. College Football Line: Oregon is a 8-point favorite. Total: 74.0.
#2 Michigan (13-0 SU, 7-4 ATS at Northwestern (9-4 SU, 6-4 ATS)
Last year: Michigan (+2.5) over NORTHWESTERN, 67-55. The second-ranked Wolverines will likely be sans Tim Hardaway Jr. again Thursday night as they open Big Ten play on the road against the Wildcats, who will be missing Reggie Hearn. Michigan is 13-0 for its best start since winning its first 16 games on the way to a Big Ten championship in 1985-86. The Wolverines are seeking their fourth consecutive win against Northwestern, but Hardaway, the team's second-leading scorer with 15.8 points per game, could miss his second straight contest with a right ankle injury. Northwestern already lost senior Drew Crawford -- and his career average of 12.8 points -- for the season after he suffered a torn labrum last month, and is now also without leading scorer Reggie Hearn (14.5). Northwestern is 7-3-1 ATS L11 vs. Big 10. College Basketball Odds: Michigan is a 10.5-point favorite. Total: 129.5.
San Antonio (26-8 SU, 21-12-1 ATS, 18-16 O/U) at New York (21-10 SU, 15-15-1 ATS, 16-13-2 O/U)
Last game (Nov. 15): New York (+5.5) over SAN ANTONIO, 104-100. The New York Knicks have lost three of the past five home games. The Knicks have lost two straight, including a home loss on Tuesday to Portland, 105-100, giving 9.5. The Knicks definitely miss point guard Ray Felton (finger), who is out until early February. They take on the red-hot San Antonio Spurs, who pay a visit on Thursday. The Spurs extended their winning streak to seven games with Wednesday's 117-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks and will be out to avenge a four-point home loss to the Knicks on Nov. 15. Home team is 6-2-1 ATS L9 in series. Hoops Odds: NY Knicks are a 1-point favorite. Total: 206.
