How to bet your rivalry, and how often Ohio State and Michigan coaches beat the spread in The Game: Betting the Buckeyes

COLUMBUS, Ohio – On this week’s version of Betting the Buckeyes on Buckeye Talk, Doug Lesmerises and Tyler Shoemaker are back to talk about Ohio State football and National College Football from a betting perspective.

First (1:00) they discuss how rivalries can be wagered and how intangibles play a role in a bet. Then they talk about the 7.5 point Ohio State-Michigan spread and how much more Ohio State was favored a few weeks ago. Tyler gives his grades for the game, and the guys agree on which side of the total they like, and Doug suggests a negotiation. Finally, TShoe presents his Ohio State bet of the week.

Then (5:38) it’s on to the Power Five conferences with Doug and Tyler each placing five bets there. Doug is very excited about his record from last week.

In the final segment (40:06), Tyler chooses his upset special and deals his three best bets of the week after going 3-0 on the best bets last week. Then it’s time for another guess, and this one is a little more advanced.

Thanks for listening to Betting the Buckeyes on Buckeye Talk.
