College Football Betting Preview: BCS Bids Up For Grabs This Saturday
Either everything will go according to plan, or there will be complete chaos in the BCS come Monday. The top-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish can complete their perfect season with a win at USC on Saturday, and clinch one of two spots in the BCS Championship game. Notre Dame is most likely to be joined by the defending national champion and No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide, which host Auburn in the Iron Bowl with the chance to hand the Tigers their eighth-straight SEC loss. The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs lead a group of four teams that are 10-1 heading in to this final weekend, and if either of the top two teams lose there could be some major re-shifting based on how teams ranked 3-7 perform this weekend.
NFL Betting Preview: Saints Look To Make Statement At Home Versus 49ers Sunday
While the LSU Tigers won’t compete in the BCS Championship game this season, football fans at Baton Rouge can turn to the New Orleans Saints as they look to continue their rally against the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday. The Saints have won three-straight and five of their last six to get back to .500, but there is still a lot of work to be done if they are going to compete for a playoff spot in a very talented NFC this season. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears are another NFC team looking to bounce back after they were blown away by San Francisco on Monday Night Football this past week, as they host the division rival Minnesota Vikings, while the Sunday Night Football matchup will feature the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers.

Other key matchups to look forward to this weekend include the San Antonio Spurs at the Toronto Raptors on Sunday afternoon, with a date between the Portland Trail Blazers and Brooklyn Nets a little later on.
