You Bet Your Ass: Week 2

New, 2 comments

The greatest gambling feature of all rolls into week two with aplomb.

Wikipedia

YBYA got off to a rousing start last week. And by rousing start, I mean only two of us are actually in the black and I'm in second to last place. At least no one can claim that I cheat! Silich was drunk and outpicked me. If I was capable of feeling shame, I would feel it. And for at least one week, Brandon can brag as much as he would like.

Northern Illinois vs Northwestern (-2.5), O/U: 57.5

Silich: $25 on MSU +11

Silich: I hate betting against Oregon in any context, but the outstanding MSU defense should be able to hold the Ducks under 35 points. If that happens, I think the Spartans have a great shot of covering.
