You Bet Your Ass: Week 13

The antepenultimate edition!

We've reached the third to last weekend of the Big Ten season, allowing me to bust out one of my favorite words: antepenultimate. Not much has changed at the top of the standings, as Brandon continues his season-long reign while Jim, Trevor, and Matt fight to catch him. Wes and I keep hovering in that middle ground, while Aaron sadly fell back to the abyss. And poor, poor Bryce. So many failed $100 bets.

Rutgers vs MSU (-22), O/U: 57.5

Primiano: $25 on MSU -22

Rench: $25 on Rutgers +22

Silich: $50 on Over 57.5

Smith: $100 on MSU -22

Darin: $50 on MSU -22

Vallese: $100 on MSU -22

Whitchurch: $50 on MSU -22

Vallese: I’ve bet on Rutgers to cover wayyyy too many times this year.

Rench: Another benefit to adding Rutgers: the exceptional great battle between spartans and medieval knights. The B1G has the best mascots!

Whitchurch: $25 on Northwestern -2

Whitchurch: $50 on Over 56.5

Cain: If Minnesota can replicate what Wisconsin did and build off last week, they'll take this one.

Vallese: $25 on Michigan -3

Whitchurch: $25 on Maryland +3

Darin: In the olden days, this is a game where Michigan would get every single call (to get their 6th win)but it may be in the conference's best interest to just put them out of their misery.

Vallese: This is a real toss-up game, but Michigan covers pretty often so I’ll go with the Wolverines at home.
