2010 Fiesta Bowl Odds: Boise State Broncos vs. TCU Picks

The Fiesta Bowl on Monday, Jan. 4, features Boise State and TCU in a matchup of unbeaten teams. However, unlike other years, this game between unbeaten teams in the Fiesta Bowl is not for the National Championship game.

This game defines what is wrong with the BCS system as two teams that have beaten everyone that they have faced will not have a chance to win the title.

However, there is still a lot riding on this game as it is one of the top bowl games in the country. You can bet the Fiesta Bowl online at and get a special 100% deposit bonus up to $500 which is like betting with the sportsbook's money.

The big story in this one is the offense. We’re not really sure if there will be any defense played in the game this year.

Boise State brings with it the No. 1 offense in the country averaging over 44 points per game. The TCU Horned Frogs bring with them the No. 4 offense, averaging over 40 points per game.

If you just go by the averages, that means they’re planning on putting up over 80 points in this one. You might use the term “shootout” to define this one with TCU favored by 7.5 points at most top online sportsbooks .

These two teams actually met last year on a much smaller stage in the Poinsettia Bowl. The Horned Frogs came out with a one point win with a final score of 17-16.

This year, they are expecting a little bit more scoring in the game. It’s on a much bigger stage than last year with new players.

This one should be really fun to watch. It’s not quite the National Title game, but it is definitely the next best thing.
