Sugar Bowl 2010 Odds – Cincinnati vs. Florida

Sugar Bowl 2010 Odds - Cincinnati vs. Florida had the line open at Florida -10 ½ and has since jumped to -12 ½ at BetUS.com.  Even with that jump, more than 80 percent of the backing is going Florida's way.

Florida was the early favorite to win the 2010 BCS Championship and was supposed to be so invincible that the oddsmakers assigned them even odds of winning.  They were instilled as huge favorites in lopsided games early on with odds that were unprecedented including the Week 1 62 point against little ‘ol Charleston Southern.  They didn't cover, winning only by 59 points. 

There is much more uncertainty coming into the Sugar Bowl New Year's Day as Florida head coach Urban Meyer was supposed to be resigning prior to that game but has since changed course.

"It's very simple," he said. "The love that I have for these players, I think that's well documented. Maybe one of the issues that I deal with is that I care so deeply about each individual. ... We've had a heck of a run, a run that we're very proud of. And when I sat back and watched those young guys go at it today and our coaching staff and the program we've built, to not try would be not the right thing to do."

Two years after arriving from Utah, Meyer delivered the Gators' second national championship with a 41-14 upset of Ohio State. Last January, they defeated Oklahoma 24-14 for another title.

Their opponent is certainly no slouch.  Cincinnati was undefeated during the 2009 College Football regular season.

Ultimately finishing third in the BCS standings, the Bearcats were potentially on their way to a championship game for a few fleeting moments. However, No. 2 Texas benefited from a replay review at the end of its Big 12 championship game to put 1 second back on the clock, and the Longhorns connected on a 46-yard field goal as time expired to come away with a 13-12 win and a ticket to Pasadena to take on top-ranked Alabama.
