With college bowl season kicking into full gear this weekend, William Hill is offering eight games for In-Play wagering from Thursday night through Christmas Eve on Monday. Sandwiched in the middle of that slate are four crucial NFL games each featuring heavy playoff implications.
The weekend’s In-Play schedule begins with Thursday’s 5 p.m. PT Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, Calif., between the host SDSU Aztecs and their former Mountain West Conference rival BYU. In-Play will also be available for Saturday’s 12:30 p.m. PT kickoff at Sam Boyd Stadium, where No. 20 Boise State and Washington meet in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas.
Also up for In-Play wagering will be a rare Saturday NFL tilt between the 12-2 Atlanta Falcons and the disappointing Detroit Lions, who are hoping to throw a wrench in Atlanta’s plans for homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. That game gets underway at 5:30 p.m. PT. Sunday’s 3-game In-Play slate is highlighted by the 10-3-1 San Francisco 49ers traveling to take on the red-hot Seattle Seahawks, who at 9-5 are on a warpath towards the playoffs and hoping to catch their NFC West rivals for the division crown. They’ll do battle at 5:30 p.m. PT.
