The Florida State Seminoles are the favourites at the books to win the BCS Championship Game in early January, with college football's bowl season kicking off on Saturday afternoon.
Florida State is listed as an 8.5-point favourite against Auburn, with those teams set to meet at the Rose Bowl in the BCS Championship Game on January 6. The Seminoles' perfect 13-0 SU record this season came with an accompanying, lucrative 11-2 ATS mark, and they were a friend to OVER bettors as well with a 10-3 OVER/UNDER record in their 13 games.
Auburn, going 12-1 SU, also went 11-2 ATS on the season, making the Tigers a great team to place your college football bets on in 2013. Will that continue in 2014 while getting more than a touchdown from the oddsmakers?
That matchup caps off bowl season, but the BCS contests get underway on New Year's Day with Stanford vs. Michigan State in the Rose Bowl, and Central Florida vs. Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl.
