Predicting the Predictions

Here is the way I see the lines for this weekend's championship games setting up.

SEC Championship Game Atlanta, GA
LSU vs Georgia
I see LSU as a 2.5 point favorite in this game. They have won nine straight, including wins over Auburn, Florida, and Alabama. They are currently fourth in the BCS Stadings and would be undefeated were it not for a 21 point second half comeback by Tennessee. Georgia is a dangerous underdog in this game because tbey too are very close to being undefeated. No Shockley in the Florida game and a breadown on fourth down against Auburn are the difference. Also, Georgia should have the home advantage being only an hour away from the site of the game.

ACC Championship Game Jacksonville, FL
Virginia Tech vs FSU
Beep, Beep, Beep.... that is the sound of FSU coming into this game. The Noles have lost their last three contests and have looked worse in each of them as the season winds down. The defense has been decimated from injuries and the offense...well you can't run the ball, you can't pass the ball. I see the Hokies as -15 point favorites in this game. They have recovered from their lone loss of the season to Miami and have a dominating defense. About the only advantage FSU has in this game is that it is played in the state of Florida.

Big 12 Championship Game Houston, TX
Texas vs Colorado
Texas rolls big time. The Longhorns got their wake up against Texas A&M and will not the opportunity of a national championship appearance pass them by. Texas beat Colorado 42-17 the first time around in Austin. Houston is alot closer to Austin than Boulder so expect a big Longhorn contingent in Reliant Stadium. Colorado was trying to let Iowa St play Texas by losing to Nebraska 30-3 at home! Texas will be around a -27 point favorite.
