Beyond the Bets have lost their freaking minds. That, or their patience is the stuff typically reserved for monks, transcendental meditators, and those in medium-to-light comas. Either way, Gamblor possessed them something fierce and the result was projected lines (based on current information, data, expectations, and the like) for a staggering 798 college football games for the 2012 season.
So how do they see Ohio State going into each game and ultimately how do they see the Buckeyes' 2012 shaking out?
Week 1 - Saturday, September 1st - Miami (OH) at Ohio State -27
Week 2 - Saturday, September 8th - UCF at Ohio State -16.5
Week 3- Saturday, September 15th - California at Ohio State -14
Week 4 - Saturday, September 22nd - UAB at Ohio State -38
Week 5 - Saturday, September 29th - Ohio State at Michigan State -1.5
Week 6 - Saturday, October 6th - Nebraska at Ohio State -5
Week 7 - Saturday, October 13th - Ohio State at Indiana +21
Week 8 - Saturday, October 20th - Purdue at Ohio State -16.5
Week 9 - Saturday, October 27th - Ohio State at Penn State +6
Week 10 - Saturday, November 3rd - Illinois at Ohio State -19.5
Week 11 - Saturday, November 10th - BYE
Week 12 - Saturday, November 17th - Ohio State at Wisconsin -4
Week 13 - Saturday, November 24th - Michigan at Ohio State -4
That last projected line has to have the lot of you licking your lips, no?
Overall this feels fairly in line with how I'd expect the season to play out. They ultimately have Ohio State going 6-2 in conference (10-2 overall) and figuring second in the Leaders division. Even had the Buckeyes been eligible for the December 1st championship game, in Beyond the Bets' opinions, they wouldn't go.
Jim Tressel's Buckeyes were notoriously staunch against the spread. Will Urban Meyer's Buckeyes be equally kind to gamblers?
Thoughts? Hopes? Dreams? Fears? Wait, where are you going? The ATM? No, no. That mailbox is not a bookie. Keep your pants on. Come on now.
