What follows is a list of the best favorite lines and best dog lines for the upcoming 2009 Bowl games as we were heading into the New Year.

Clemson vs. Nebraska - The best line here for the away favorite was Clemson -1 ½ at Bookmaker.com.   Nebraska was the home underdog with a line up to +2 ½ at betED.com.  Of course savvy sports bettors might want to bet both sides of this game and hope Clemson wins by 2 points.  This is definitely an even enough matchup to expect a close game.

Michigan State vs. Georgia - We've seen the line range from Georgia -7 ½ at a few online sportsbooks including Sportingbet.com (which does not take US customers). Sportsinteraction.com had a line of Michigan State +8 ½ and they do take US customers. 

Virginia Tech vs. Cincinnati - The line on this game ranged from Cincinnati -1 ½ at Bookmaker.com to Virginia Tech +2 ½ at Sportingbet.com.  It is a shame that US citizens cannot bet at Sportingbet though.

Penn State vs. USC (Southern California) had a line of USC -9 across the board at all Gambling911.com endorsed sportsbooks.

Utah vs. Alabama had a line of -9 to -9 ½ across the board favoring Alabama but betED.com was offering Utah up at +10.

Buffalo vs. Connecticut in the International Bowl we have seen a line of anywhere from Connecticut -4 ½ to Buffalo +6.  This game goes off on Saturday so there could be even further line fluctuations. 

The Ohio State vs. Texas line was either Texas -8 or -8 ½ depending on where you looked.

Ball State vs. Tulsa had a line of Ball State -1 to -2 and was likely to move further by kickoff Tuesday as more bets rolled in.

The BCS Championship game had Florida as the -3 away favorite everywhere except for betED.com, where Oklahoma fans will be happy to know the line was still at +3 ½ last time we checked.
