    For whatever reason I just can't ever bring myself to taking those massive point spreads. Hate losing them on fourth quarter trash when teams like Tennessee put guys on crutches in.

    But with that being said - Bowling Green was unwatchable last year. Just atrocious so good luck. I like it.

    you are right, it is infuriating when they are up 49-0, bench the starters and give up a couple TDs in the 4th quarter

    I'm going to start looking at first half spreads on bigger games to avoid that. Might lay the wood with whatever Ohio State is giving in the first half tonight. Tougher to want to do it on the road though.

    I'm gonna try Minn +14 tonight and parley it with Auburn -37. Why the zips going down to Auburn? They can lose by 37 to a MAC team.

    Placed - 2 Team Parlay

    Auburn -37 (-110)
    (199) Akron Zips @ (200) Auburn Tigers

    Minnesota Golden Gophers +14 (-105)
    (145) Ohio State @ (146) Minnesota

    You should tease that manzo. Unfortunately if I bet I'm going the other way with OSU. Going to wait for a good live line.

    Ya--good point my man.

    I'm watching the live line too--last night I cashed on UAB although I bet Jax initially. Depending on what I see I may be on OSU in some ways too.

    Isn't it the case Minn is bringing back a huge amount of last years guys? That's what swayed me.

    They are I believe but I think they're somewhat overvalued because of what they did two years ago. Perfect storm with a lot of seniors that made Tanner Morgan look like an NFL prospect (Bateman + Tyler Johnson are gone to the NFL). He looked like trash last year with a noodle arm.

    Their runningback is a stud though.

    Ohio State is just such a machine ala Clemson, Alabama and now Oklahoma. Spread aside they're likely never going to run close to teams like this IMO. But crazier things have happened.

    Thx man--convincing argument re: Bateman and Johnson--I cashed it out. I'll wait on live action too.

    Meh. I hope Ohio State covers with ease now because otherwise I'll feel bad. Otherwise I'd hammer Ohio State if Minnesota scores the obligatory first touchdown because of heavy home momentum.

    Don't feel bad--you gave your analysis and I acted. I did'nt have a strong opinion to begin with

    I nabbed Ohio State at -14 at the kickoff buzzer. Talked myself into it.

    I picked Ohio State -13.5 for 1st half after they scored TD. There goes my $10 on a stupid bet I guess

    Absolutely brutal string of events in both games. UCF drives right down the field and Gabriel throws the worst pass I've ever seen in the red zone for a hundred yard pick six.

    Ohio State gets a timely pick negated by a roughing the passer.

    Looks like UCF is back to being one of the worst tackling teams in the nation again.

    I grabbed OSU -3.5 at halftime and was laughing my way to the bank after the pick--until it was reversed. Way to go #19.

    Ohio State
    -3.5(-110)
    Point Spread

    Momentum rules man. Ohio State was going to be off and running if that play stood.

    Just took the money line at -134.

    @Brook! - I think we can move this now. This thread is just going to annoy everyone with our in game bets and commentary.

    That edge bend from the potential future Jet Zach Harrison!!! @IDFjet we should've been adding earlier.

    PJ Fleck has always been super lame to me.

    fleck is lame. I thought that cheesy rowing the boat schtick was just something he had to uniquely motivate Central Michigan. I didn’t know he was going to base his entire career on it.

    Imagine playing at Minny for 4 years. “Oh, we’re doing the boat thing again”
