Gambling911.com has reported the past couple of days that 85% of the spread action in Tuesday's Rose Bowl game was on the Buckeyes.

Hours before kickoff, Gambling911.com gave the Washington Huskies a 70% chance of covering the +7 point spread based on our analysis.  Sagarin indicated the line should be Ohio State -5.  The books dramatically moved the line from -7 to as low as -4 two hours prior to the game.  For almost the entire month of December, the books had moved off the -7 to either -6.5 or -6 despite all the action coming in on the Buckeyes.

Think the books had an opinion on this one?

You betcha!

And heading into Halftime, it appeared as if the sportsbooks were going to get crushed.

But in the second half, Washington roared back and managed a series of touchdowns, including a controversial one within the final two minutes.

The result: A 5-point cover by the Huskies.

This was also a rare middling opportunity that could have come into fruition for some.

Anyone who had Washington at +5.5 to +7.5 could have bet Ohio State Tuesday afternoon at -4.5 or even -4 at books the likes of Pinnacle.
