You Bet Your Ass: Week 9

New, 3 comments

We're heating up.

In a stunning development last week, every gambler actually managed to finish in the black. Hell, the last place finish was +$25. Beloved gambling punching bag Collin Whitchurch even managed to set a new record by winning $300. He's still in 8th place though. And upon further review, Mr. Darin actually earned $325 so no record for Collin.

Vallese: $100 on Minnesota -6.5

Whitchurch: $100 on Minnesota -6.5

Rench: $50 on Under 57



Vainisi: At least it’ll be a beautiful Fall day in Champaign, right?

Darin: Rutgers is starting to see that life in the Big Ten is a lot harder than the AAC. Keep in mind we beat Cincinnati last year handily and they almost won that conference.

Whitchurch: $100 on Over 57.5

Rench: $25 on Under 57.5



Silich: Illinois covered 10 points against Wisconsin on the road. C'mon now.

Darin: Apparently the general public hasn't watched a Wisconsin game in the last month. No other explanation for them being this big of a favorite here.

Vallese: The fact that this game has the largest spread of the week tells you all you need to know about the state of the Michigan program.

Rench: The Spartans will figuratively punch the Wolverines in the nads.
