Down 3-28 heading into the 4th quarter, Ohio State seemed almost certain to cover the -7 point spread.  Washington was not having any of that.

The books were seeing 85% of the action on the Buckeyes and needed Washington desperately to cover the spread.

Then came the 4th quarter with the Huskies roaring back to score a series of touchdowns and, with under two minutes left to play, got within 5 points of Ohio State.

The Buckeyes intercepted an attempted two-point conversion and almost scored another two points before being taken down.

An onside kick sealed the deal for Ohio State to win....but not to cover for most.

Two hours ahead of the game, the line came down to -4.5 and even -4.  This meant there was an opportunity for some folks to win betting both sides.

Nick Bogdanovich of William Hill nailed it in an interview with Covers.com when describing the huge swing that ultimately favored the books.

"Huge. We got very lucky."

He revealed it was a game with "insane handle," TD a 7-figure swing for WillHill, from sizable 6-figure loss to sizable 6-figure win.
