BCS Bowl Odds: Auburn Over Oregon, Stanford And Ohio State Over Virginia Tech And Arkansas

SEC and ACC bowl pairings have been announced, and Vegas has taken its crack at appealing opening lines. The Oregon Ducks opened as -3 favorites over the Auburn Tigers, but as expected that line has now swung the other way. Auburn's now a -3 favorite over Oregon, according to Odds Shark.

The Shark also had the Ohio St. Buckeyes opening at -2.5 against the Arkansas Razorbacks, which has since risen to -3. The Virginia Tech Hokies and Stanford Cardinal Orange Bowl was a pick 'em, but Stanford's now favored by 3 -- presumably since they haven't lost to James Madison. The TCU Horned Frogs are a -3 against the Wisconsin Badgers, and that line has yet to move.

It'll shock nobody that the Oklahoma Sooners were favored by 16.5 over the Connecticut Huskies in the Fiesta, but the line has actually surged to -18. That one could be worth a play -- the Sooners have won a handful of very close games against supposedly inferior competition, including a two-point win over the Cincinnati Bearcats. UConn beat the Bearcats by 21.
