Jeff Alexander is one of the most popular football handicappers on our site and it’s no surprise when you look at the history he has put together with his bowl picks.  No other handicapper in the world spends as many hours pouring over the bowl game odds as Alexander does, and that is why he is able to hit at such a high rate during the post-season.  Let’s take a look at his 2008 Las Vegas Bowl winner on Arizona to see just why he was zoned in on Zona.

It’s old news for BYU to be playing in the Las Vegas Bowl.  The Cougars were thinking they had a team capable of sneaking into the BCS picture this season.  Zona gets in a bowl game for the first time in a decade and it will show its excitement by kicking the Cougars Saturday.  BYU has some strong factors going against them in this one.  It is only 1-7 ATS after the first month of the season this season and a terrible 4-20 ATS after a 2 game road trip since 1992.  Coach Stoops is 8-1 ATS vs. excellent passing teams averaging 275 or more passing yards/game as the coach of Arizona.  Lay the points.
