On Sunday night, we officially learned the complete BCS bowl schedule for the upcoming bowl season and now the folks in Vegas are ready to open up the betting lines. In the national championship game, Florida State is more than a touchdown favorite over Auburn, but that isn’t the biggest spread that’s been announced.
Baylor opened as a 17-point favorite over Central Florida in the Fiesta Bowl, which could be a trap. UCF suffered only one loss this season and it came at the hands of the South Carolina Gamecocks. Despite being a national title contender at the time, South Carolina edge the Knights by just three points.
What do the rest of the point spreads look like?
Here are the opening lines for the 2014 BCS bowl games, via RJ Bell of Pregame.com:
BCS Title: Florida State -8.5 vs. Auburn
Rose Bowl: Stanford -1.5 vs. Michigan State
Fiesta Bowl: Baylor -17 over Central Florida
Sugar Bowl: Alabama -14.5 over Oklahoma
Orange Bowl: Ohio State -4.5 over Clemson
