Wine Online: Experts Weigh in on Bowls

Dec. 20, 2004

If the odds makers are correct, the Big Ten is going to take a bath in the upcoming bowl games. Six Big Ten teams will play in post-season contests, and only one is expected to win. Purdue is a 7-point favorite to beat Arizona State in the Sun Bowl.

Iowa is one of five Big Ten underdogs. LSU has been established as a 6 l/2-point favorite to beat the Hawkeyes in the Capital One Bowl.

Other Big Ten underdogs are Ohio State, by 2 l/2 points to Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl; Minnesota, by 4 points to Alabama in the Music City Bowl; Wisconsin, by 7 points to Georgia in the Outback Bowl; and Michigan, by 5 l/2 points to Texas in the Rose Bowl.
