Outback Bowl odds and point spread: Wisconsin vs. Tennessee The college bowl games continue on January 1st with the Outback Bowl game between the No.18 Wisconsin Badgers (9-3) and the No.16 Tennessee Volunteers (9-4) at Tampa, Fla. It will be the fourth time in a row Wisconsin plays on New Year's Day and will attempt to close the season with 10 Ws on the record. The Vols are making an appearance in the Outback Bowl for the second straight time and will also look to close the season in a good note. The odds makers had quite a time figuring out which of the two college football teams will win the Outback Bowl game in the first day of 2008, but the spread and odds have finally appeared to be settled. At the online sportsbook Bookmaker (official site), the point spread on the Wisconsin vs. Tennessee Outback Bowl game is currently sitting at -1.5 points chalk the Vols with the total expected for the bowl game listed at 57.5 points. Tennessee will go to Tampa as the odds favorite, as well, listed at -125 and Wisconsin will hold underdog odds of +105.

 Both the Badgers and the Volunteers have plenty of injuries to worry about. At Wisconsin running back Lance Smith-Williams, wide receiver Luke Swan, DT Jason Chapman, DL Jamal Cooper and CB Allen Langford are out for the season. Another Badgers cornerback Aaron Henry is doubtful for the Outback Bowl game and tight end Travis Beckum is still questionable with a shoulder injury. Running back P.J. Hill was last listed as probable and will likely be a game-day decision. Meanwhile at Tennessee CBs Antonio Gaines and Marsalous Johnson, DTs Chase Nelson and Demonte Bolden, as well as running back LaMarcus Coker are out for the Outback Bowl game. Linebackers Rico McCoy and Ryan Karl remain questionable for the Bowl game, along with running back Montario Hardesty.
