O/U on OSU wins set at 9

OHIO ST REG SEAS WINS o9+195
OHIO ST REG SEAS WINS u9-245

I fucking love the over. 195 on a 100 bet? I'm in, hell I would have taken even odds on the over at 9. People are forgetting that while Tress and Pryor are gone this is still the most talented team in the B1G.

Sat, Sept 3 vs Akron
Sat, Sept 10 vs Toledo
Sat, Sept 17 @ Miami (FL)
Sat, Sept 24 Colorado
Sat, Oct 1 Michigan State
Sat, Oct 8 @ Nebraska
Sat, Oct 15 @ Illinois
Sat, Oct 29 Wisconsin
Sat, Nov 5 Indiana
Sat, Nov 12 @ Purdue
Sat, Nov 19 Penn State
Sat, Nov 26 @ Michigan

I looked down the list of games and I see the following:

Guaranteed wins:
Akron
Toledo
Miami (rightfully assuming that 50% of their starting L/U will be suspended)
Colorado (terrible team)
Indiana
Illinois
Purdue

Almost Guaranteed Wins:
scUM
PSU

so IMO, all OSU has to do is win one of Wisco, Nebraska or MSU to cover and do as predicted across the board. I like their chances to win one of those games. It may be time to capitalize on the medias exaggerations re: the death of OSU football because come Sep 17, they will realize that the team is just fine.

A 195 moneyline on that is pretty damn astounding.

Money line is down to +160 over, -200 under.

Other odds of note on tOSU season:

Odds of winning B1G: 5/1
Odds of winning Leaders: 5/2
Odds of winning BCS Champ: 25/1

All lines from Bodog.

I love the over and I think that OSU at 5/1 for the B1G is a pretty decent value bet. You are buying OSU low right now. There are idiots in the media that actually think that they are going to go 7-5 this year.
