You Bet Your Ass: Week 7

New, 5 comments

In which we endure through a five game week.

Once conference play starts, the betting reaches a different level. We only have five games to wager on this week. What's the fun in having a 14 team conference if only ten of them play! Terrible! I will say that Purdue has a chance of pissing us all of two weeks in a row.


Northwestern vs Minnesota (-4), O/U: 42

Primiano: $25 on Minnesota -4

Vainisi: $25 on Northwestern +4

Silich: $50 on Under 42

Darin: $25 on Minnesota -4

Whitchurch: $100 on Northwestern +4

Vallese: $25 on Over 42

Smith: $25 on Northwestern +4

Rench: $25 on Under 42

Cain: $25 on Minnesota -4

Whitchurch: I'm betting $100 on every game this week. Don't call it a comeback!

Darin: I'm still convinced that most of Northwestern's "upsets" are from teams not taking them seriously. Last year when people decided they were worth taking seriously, they lost 7 in a row.


Illinois vs Wisconsin (-24), O/U: 55.5

Primiano: $50 on Over 55.5

Vainisi: $50 on Wisconsin -24

Silich: $25 on Over 55.5

Darin: $25 on Over 55.5

Whitchurch: $100 on Wisconsin -24

Vallese: $100 on Over 55.5

Smith: $100 on Over 55.5

Rench: $25 on Over 55.5

Cain: $50 on Over 55.5

Rench: You all think you have it bad? I'm the one who has to write the recap.

Primiano: Um... so do I.


Indiana vs Iowa (-6.5), O/U: 54

Primiano: $25 on Under 54

Vainisi: $50 on Over 54

Silich: $50 on Indiana +6.5

Darin: $25 on Iowa -6.5

Whitchurch: $100 on Iowa -6.5

Vallese: $25 on Iowa -6.5

Smith: $50 on Over 54

Rench: $50 on Indiana +6.5

Cain: $25 on Iowa -6.5

Silich: I'm having a really hard time trusting Iowa to do much of anything this year. Their defense is nice, but it's going to be facing a strong offense in Indiana. I think this one comes down to Iowa's ability to move the ball, and I don't believe they can do it well enough.

Vainisi: Can this game end in a tie?

Cain: The basketball vs wrestling school match-up! I like wrestling more.



Michigan State (-21.5) vs Purdue, O/U: 54.5

Primiano: $100 on Michigan State -21.5

Vainisi: $100 on Michigan State -21.5

Silich: $100 on Over 54.5

Darin: $100 on Michigan State -21.5

Whitchurch: $100 on Michigan State -21.5

Vallese: $25 on Michigan State -21.5

Smith: $50 on Michigan State -21.5

Rench: $100 on Michigan State -21.5

Cain: $100 on Over 54.5

Rench: Oct. 14, 2014 - The reports state that little remains of West Lafayette. The devastation of the Spartan Bomb has flattened and desolated the area, making it more flattened and desolate than it ever was before. It will take years for the locals to rebuild but any donations are appreciated.

Smith: Purdue is that bad, which means we’re that bad.


Penn State (-2) vs Michigan, O/U: 41

Primiano: $50 on Penn State -2

Vainisi: $25 on Penn State -2

Silich: $25 on Michigan +2

Darin: $50 on Penn State -2

Whitchurch: $100 on Penn State -2

Vallese: $25 on Penn State -2

Smith: $25 on Under 41

Rench: $50 on Penn State -2

Cain: $50 on Over 41

Cain: Michigan's football team is 2-4 and Brady Hoke still has his job. Let that sink in for a moment. I don't see them winning again until November.

Vallese: Michigan’s season has turned into a dumpster fire but I’d be a little more confident in a PSU win if they were playing in Happy Valley.
