When Roger Goodell is asked at his state-of-the-league address at the Super Bowl why the quality of prime-time games was so putrid this season, he should rattle off some clich about how strong the NFL product is and then summon Gruden from behind a hidde

Carson Palmer's season-ending ACL injury changes the NFL picture. Palmer had a 95.6 rating in his six starts. He was very comfortable in Arians' offense. He had played good football from the middle of last season until he blew out his knee. Now things change for the Cardinals.

Stanton has played fairly well this season, and the Cardinals looked good with him at quarterback when Palmer missed three starts with a shoulder injury. He also has completed just 49.5 percent of his passes this season. He has a 69.2 career rating. He isn't some hot-shot young quarterback who just needed a chance either. Stanton is 30. Maybe this is his breakout moment, but it would be fairly unprecedented.
To believe there is no drop-off from Palmer to Stanton is a remarkable leap of faith. One might even say it's a bit delusional. The Cardinals are going to be a different team without their starting quarterback; almost any team would be. The question is, if you assume there's a drop-off at quarterback, what's the drop-off for the Cardinals as a whole?

We have to look at the Cardinals going forward, with Stanton at quarterback the rest of the season. It's not just a list of teams based entirely on their record to date, those rankings can be found here. The Cardinals have shown they can win some games with him, but are they a Super Bowl contender anymore? Are they a top-three team anymore?


Undefeated Big 12 Showdown

The 4-0 and seventh ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers visit the 4-0 Kansas State Wildcats tonight. Sportsbook.com currently has Nebraska Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online How to bet on 2019 Super Bowl Predictions as 11 point favorites, while the Ďtotalí is 48 points.

After averaging 47.7 PPG in its first three wins (including 56 at Washington), Nebraska only scored 17 against South Dakota State in its last game. Kansas State has only one double-digit win in its first four games, all which have been played at home. KSUís Daniel Thomas has 157 rushing YPG this year, ranking fifth in the nation.

Nebraskaís Taylor Martinez is 2nd in the nation in rushing yards for a QB (124 rush YPG), trailing only Denard Robinson. RBs Roy Helu Jr. (43 rush, 305 yds, 4 TD) and Rex Burkhead (41 rush, 304 yds, 3 TD) have nearly identical numbers so it makes sense to have them continue to split carries. Helu has 167 rushing yards and three scores in the past two games against KSU. The Blackshirts are 3rd in the nation in pass defense (126 YPG) and 11th in total defense (265 YPG).

CFB: Cotton Bowl - OLE MISS vs. OKLAHOMA STATE (2:00 PM ET, FOX)
2010-01-04

The Cotton Bowl Classic has a long and storied tradition, and for 2010, Ole Miss & Oklahoma State will try to add to it. Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com have made the Rebels the favorite, despite being one-game worse in won-lost mark. Bettors seemingly agree, backing Ole Miss at a 78% rate at last check.

Ole Miss and Oklahoma State last met in the 2004 Cotton Bowl, with quarterback Eli Manning and the Rebels pulling out a 31-28 win in his finale. Another senior quarterback plays his last game for Ole Miss in the 2010 Classic in Jevan Snead. While his career hasnít been as illustrious as Manningís, the program has reached new heights in the national polls with him under center. The Rebels are 8-4 in 2009 and will be putting a seven-game, non-conference ATS winning streak on the line versus the Cowboys. They have also fared well in bowl games, 7-1 SU and 6-1-1 ATS in their L8. Oklahoma State has the better record (9-3) versus a tougher schedule, yet plays as the three-point underdog. It is 0-3 SU and 0-2-1 ATS as bowl game underdog.

If you were to tell me that you planned on taking every SEC team in their bowl games, I couldnít possibly argue with the logic. After all, they are 19-7 SU and 18-7-1 ATS in the last four years. Now, I might point you specifically to this Cotton Bowl game, where Ole Miss is playing as a three-point favorite to Oklahoma State. I really donít like what I saw from the Cowboys offensively down the stretch, as they really seemed affected by the loss of wide receiver Dez Bryant. After his suspension in early October, Oklahoma State averaged a pedestrian 25.8 points per game (39.0 prior). It was shut out in the season finale by Oklahoma. The Rebels have a history of playing well in bowl games and have covered seven straight non-conference tilts. They get it done, 27-20.

Top FoxSheets.com ATS Trend
Mike Gundy is 9-18 ATS (-10.8 Units) as an underdog as the coach of OKLAHOMA ST. The average score was OKLAHOMA ST 24.9, OPPONENT 37.0 - (Rating = 2*)

Top FoxSheets.com Total Trend
OLE MISS is 6-0 OVER (+6.0 Units) in non-conference games over the last 2 seasons. The average score was OLE MISS 43.6, OPPONENT 16.1 - (Rating = 1*)

COTTON BOWL - (255) OLE MISS [-3, 50.5] vs. (256) OKLAHOMA ST: For the second straight year, the Cotton Bowl is moved back to January 2nd. The SEC is on a decent run in the series, having gone 5-1 SU & 4-1-1 ATS in the last six years. UNDER the total is also 5-1 in that span, and going back even further, 11-3 since í95. This yearís contest is a rematch of the í04 game, won by Eli Manning & Ole Miss, 31-28.



CFB: EagleBank Bowl - UCLA vs. Temple (4:30 PM ET, ESPN)
2009-12-29

The bowl season marches on with a pair of games on Tuesday. The first one kicks off in mid-afternoon so be sure to not wait until the evening to get your wagers in, as UCLA and Temple will go at it from RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. starting at 4:30 PM ET on ESPN. UCLA is a 4.5-point favorite and backed by nearly 2/3 of bettors according to Sportsbook.comís Betting Trends page. To date, bettors have been a bit more sharp regarding the totals in the bowl games. For today, they are favoring the UNDER 45.5, but only by a slight margin.

UCLA (6-6, SU & ATS) found out the true meaning of bowl eligible, having to wait two weeks to find out if they had another game or not. When Army lost to Navy, that set into motion the Bruins plans and they head this far East for the first time since 1998, when they traveled to Miami-Fl, however the nationís capital in late December isnít exactly South or Santa Monica Beach. Temple (9-3, 8-3 ATS) also had to wait just over a week to find out whom they would play, but they didnít mind a bit, since the Owls are going bowling for the first time in 31 years. If any team should be jacked, it should be Temple and having a BCS team as opponent just adds to excitement.

Coach Al Golden has turned in one of the better coaching jobs this season, taking a team with definite limitations and almost making to the MAC title game. True freshman Bernard Pierce was sensational, running for 1,308 yards and 15 TDs, essentially in just eight games. Temple averaged 192 yards per game against teams that allowed 157 YPG and the Owls are 23-11 ATS in all games over the last three seasons. The one dimension missing is a passing game, having not thrown for more than 150 yards since Oct.10. With this time off, coach Golden hopes a semblance of passing the pigskin is possible with Temple 8-21 ATS away from home when they gain 100 to 150 net passing yards.

At least the Owls have something to hoot about offensively, thatís more than UCLA can say. The Bruins managed just one more yard of total offense than Temple at 339 yards (albeit vs much tougher competition) and did not run or throw with aplomb. Kevin Prince is presumed to be UCLAís starting signal caller and could use the help of offensive linemen to block somebody. The Bruins are 4-20 ATS when they run for 100 to 150 yards and Temple surrendered just 109 per game this season.

The UCLA run defense had was run over by teams with a solid run game, however with Owls not being able to fly via the air, the Bruins can pack the box and dare Temple to beat them throwing the ball. UCLA is 17-8 ATS after a spread loss like they suffered against rival USC and Sportsbook.com has them as four-point favorites with total drifting downward to 45.

As mentioned, Temple has to be super excited to play in this game, with better than three decades between bowl appearances and the Owls are 16-6 ATS as underdogs. UCLA didnít show a substantial amount of improvement, other than becoming eligible to play in this contest and frosty environment against a team with a long losing history, doesnít figure to make the Bruins charged-up. Their 28-7 loss to the Trojans has UCLA 2-6 ATS off a loss by 20 or more.

Temple has almost no postseason history, having played in bowls in 1978 and 1934. The Owls only took on three teams playing in bowls and was 1-2 and 2-1 ATS in 2009. The Bruins postseason history is much deeper at 13-15-1 with 11-11 ATS. UCLA has performed much better in the role as underdog compared to favorite like they are in the second EagleBank Bowl. They are 5-10 ATS as chalk, including most recent 2-7 spread mark.

The StatFox Power Line shows UCLA by 6, a slight edge on the actual line at Sportsbook for the Bruins.


CFB: Army vs. Navy (2:30 PM ET, CBS)
2009-12-11

Saturday will be the 110th renewal of the historic football rivalry between Army and Navy. Played at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, the game is neutral in the truest sense, being roughly equidistant from the two academies. Navy is currently working on a seven-game winning streak in the series, the longest ever in the rich history. Overall, the Midshipmen own a 53-49-7 edge all time. They are a 14-point favorite at Sportsbook.com.

This battle takes on greater emotional significance with countryís involvement in the world and when the two schools march in to take their place in the stadium, it is one of the coolest moments you will ever see before a game starts.

This contest has more than usual riding on it, especially for Army (5-6, 3-7 ATS). First year coach Rick Ellerson was brought in to change the football aspect of the Black Knights, who had won as many as four games once in the last dozen seasons before this year. With an upset win over Navy, Army would secure first bowl bid since 1996 and take on Temple in the EagleBank Bowl.

Besides attempting to end that drought, the pain of not defeating the Midshipmen since 2001 (1-6 ATS) hangs over West Point like an omnipresent cloud. The biggest problem for Army of late has been scoring points, as theyíve produced just 10.1 points per game during the losing skid. Ordinarily, you would think rest and preparation would benefit any football squad, however if you are outmanned, it doesnít matter. The Black Knights of the Hudson are unthinkable 3-24 ATS with rest.

For Navy (8-4, 5-5-1 ATS), it is business as usual. They have already locked up Texas Bowl bid against Missouri and for the third consecutive year and fifth in the last six, are double digit favorites vs. their biggest rival. (Sportsbook.com has the Middies at -14, with total of 40.5).

The Midshipmen have one very distinct advantage in this matchup, they can score. Navy averages 28.3 points per game, behind the nationís third best rushing attack, averaging 279.6 yards per game. Navy is off a 24-17 upset loss at Hawaii as nine-point favorites and is 35-13 ATS in road games after one or more consecutive losses against the spread.

Army on the other hand struggles to score points, totaling just 16.5 per game, ranking 116th in total offense at 283.4 yards per game against opponents that allowed 91 more yards a contest. This means Army will need to force turnovers and win the special teams battle to setup better field position, since they are unlikely to put together many long drives, no matter how fired up they are. They are just 4-13 ATS when the total is 42 or less.

Over the years, this contest has lost significance in the public eye for a variety of reasons and the two institutions worked out a deal with CBS to rekindle the spirit and give it its own special date, the second Saturday in December, away from conference championships and BCS chatter.

No matter the outcome, the effort will not be question. If anyone saw the Navy beat Notre Dame or the Army knock off Vanderbilt from the SEC this season, these players go hard for all 60 minutes. To the winners go the spoils and bragging rights that last an entire year. Should Navy win, the Commander in Chief Trophy stays with them yet again.

The StatFox Power Line shows Navy by 16, slightly higher than the price at Sportsbook.
