You Bet Your Ass: Week 4

New, 13 comments

The (basically) final week of OOC betting is here!

With today being basically the final week of non-conference games, betting will start to get a little more interesting. Once Big Ten play starts, it's a lot harder to make up massive ground without making massive bets. Will our degenerate gambles rise to the occasion or will they wilt and crumble like so many petunias come October? Who knows! Me, that's who.

Eastern Michigan vs Michigan State (-45), O/U: 55

Silich: $25 on Wisconsin -17

Whitchurch: Why does it seem like every week a Big Ten team is playing against THE PRIDE AND JOY OF EASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, DINO BABERS?

Vainisi: Through the first 4 weeks, the Terps have played USF, West Virginia, and now Syracuse. It’s fun to watch big schools play each other. #Analysis

Rench:  I've always wanted Otto the Orange get into a fist fight with another mascot. Fruit vs. Turtle anyone? (Actually, this last concept put me into a 5-minute day dream about how awesome a Super Smash Bros.-styled fighter would be using college football mascots and locations. Imagine the sword-wielding Sparty, stiff-arming Goldy the Gopher, the Mountaineer (using long range rifles and burning couches) and the Oregon Duck all duking it out on a Rose Bowl-themed stage...)
