Post your comments in this BCS (Bowl Championship Series) National Championship Game this evening and check out these odds from RJ Bell of sports wagering information site,

BCS Title Game:

Alabama currently favored by 9.5 over Notre Dame.

65% of all bets so far have been on Notre Dame (35% on Alabama)
Although a majority of professional bettors have been backing Alabama.

This is the 41st STRAIGHT game overall Alabama has been favored in!

Before the season started, Notre Dame was a 50 to 1 longshot to win the BCS Title ($100 wins $5,000)

Alabama vs. Notre Dame is projected to be the BIGGEST BET college football game IN HISTORY
with an estimated $2 BILLION wagered worldwide!
THREE-TIMES as much as any other bowl game this season.
Super Bowl is still King: This year’s Super Bowl is expected to generate FIVE-TIMES as much action ($10 Billion worldwide!)

THIRD BCS Title game ever in the double digit line range
The first two double digit favorites (Miami Fl in 2003; Florida State in 2001) both lost the game outright.

The Point Spread has NEVER mattered in BCS Title game!
(14 out of 14 times either the favorite won by more than the spread, or the underdog won the game outright)

$100 wins $300 if you bet the moneyline for Notre Dame to win the game outright.
