Ohio State Spread, Moneyline Most Bet On Saturday

When it comes to 2010 Week 5 College Football action, Ohio State was getting all the early love from gamblers, both on the spread and the huge moneyline.  The spread was +16 ½ at BetED.com heading into game time Noon Eastern.  That line had dropped from Ohio State -18 earlier in the week.  Some 80 percent of bettors placing action on this game were siding with the Buckeyes.  Nearly all the money line action was going towards Ohio State.

The moneyline bet would require $90 to win $10 but Ohio State is only required to win outright. The $90 bet is refunded only if the Buckeyes do win outright.  But as Gambling911.com has previously pointed out, Illinois has played Ohio State well in the past, which makes the heavy moneyline action on the Buckeyes even more of a mystery.   

One possible explanation:  Ohio State last week crushed Eastern Michigan by a score of 73 to 20.  That is the most scored points by the Buckeyes in 60 years.

"We didn't come in saying, 'Well, you know, we're going to go after X amount of points,'"  Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel said.

It should probably come as little surprise that the TOTAL in this game has a line of 50.5, though that is nearly 20 points less than what the Buckeyes scored on their own last week.

Other heavily bet on sides, totals, moneylines getting lopsided action for Week 5 included:

CFB: MiamiFla         -3.0/-115

CFB: Oklahoma         -3.5/-110

CFB: Iowa         -7.5/-110

CFB: Stanford         6.5/-110

NFL Betting – Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A crucial battle in the NFC hits the Monday Night Football stage when the Los Angeles Rams visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coming off a win over division-leading Seattle, the Rams can move into a share of first-place in the NFC West with a win. Meanwhile, the Bucs are battling with New Orleans for supremacy in the NFC South, rebounding from a disastrous loss to the Saints with a payout last week over Carolina. We probably won’t see a shootout like we did last season between these clubs with both having a top-5 defense, but you never know.
