Heres our early betting look at bowl season, including early wagering opportunities.Games of interestMiami Hurricanes (-3) vs. West Virginia MountaineersWe love the way Mark Richt prepares his teams for the postseason, as hes a master at making sure the players dont do too much or too little in all those bowl practices and peak at just the right time. After Richts successful 8-4 debut with a lot of underclassmen in the lineup, enthusiasm around the Miami program is as high as it has been in years. This team will be excited to play, and the Canes look like a rapidly maturing outfit with a good chance to put it together and play their best game of the year in the bowl.

Jerami Grant Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Danilo Gallinari Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Crystal Palace are in a freefall.Alan Pardews Eagles (3-2-6) are without a win in five straight Premier League matches and minus a point in four -- a run that has sent them plummeting down the table to within just one point of the bottom three.Though it likely wont be easy, Palace hope to stop the bleeding Saturday against Manchester City at Selhurst Park.Pardews side has conceded a combined 10 goals in just three games prior to the recent international break. What Palace need now is an easy game to get his side back up and running. What he gets instead is a visit from a title favourite.Pep Guardiolas City (7-3-1) have lost just three times over 19 overall competitions. In league play, theyve scored 25 goals (only two clubs have more) and conceded just 10 (which only two clubs can improve on). But despite their apparent dominance, City will arrive in south London desperate for a victory after a run of results that saw them win just once in their last five (1-3-1) league matches.Guardiolas star-studded side are therefore expected to be firing on all cylinders against one of the leakiest defences in the division. One player in particular is looking forward to visiting Palace again.Crystal Palace will always be a special game for me because I scored my first goal against them and if I play on Saturday, I hope to score another against them, City striker Kelechi Iheanacho said. But they are very strong and have very good wingers so they will believe they can win this game. We have to be careful, respect them and expect this to be a very difficult match.Ihenacho has a point, for iin the final game before the international break Palace almost produced an impressive comeback, recovering from two goals down against Burnley… only to miss a penalty and concede a third to lose 3-2.ddddddddddddIt was a harsh result to take, but not one that has shaken striker Christian Benteke (who missed the key penalty) off his stride.The Premier League is the strongest league in the world, anything can happen in games and we have seen that again (against Burnley) but we need to work hard and for the players the only way is to carry on and keep fighting to turn things around, he said.Benteke could be one of the main threats against City, with his aerial ability likely to be Palaces main attacking ploy against a team whose defence and goalkeeper are not at their strongest when dealing with crosses into the box.There will be little in the way of an attacking plan b for Palace however, with forwards Loic Remy and Bacary Sako both expected to be unavailable. Goalkeeper Steve Mandanda is also an injury concern for the hosts.City must deal with injury problems of their own. Fabian Delph has been ruled out and Vincent Kompany, Bacary Sagna and Fernando all doubts. Striker Sergio Aguero traveled back from South America late in the week, but did not feature in Argentinas midweek 3-0 win over Colombia so he should be fit to start.Palace have lost seven of their last eight league meetings with City, and failed to score in five of the last six encounters.
