vBoook: OSU versus Cincy

This is a fixed odds, point spread bet. The 'official' point spread will be the final spread published by the Columbus Dispatch prior to the game.

Note: I will be out of town the two weeks leading up to the game so you wont see the spread updated in the event, but it will be what I use to settle. (I will be at a wedding in NC the day of the game - and I had tickets!)
"Good" lines won't be out until about a week before the game... Oh8ch..Which book are you going to use to get the lines?

Ganz-Culver (sp?) is pretty good usually.

I think some folks figured it was a head to head w/o points... that's what I first thought, until I read a little further down...

Guess we will need to wait a week before the game to start placeing money with an indication of where the line will be...

Jim Feist has opening lines up

They will obviously change but not overly significantly. He has Ohio State as an 18.5 point favorite at this point. To view his opening preliminary lines, go to www.jimfeist.com and log into their free "Offshore connection." This can be done by clicking on "Feist Lines" at the top of the list on the right hand side, about 1/3 of the way down the page.

Which book are you going to use to get the lines

I had originally said I would use the line published in the Columbus Dispatch, but that iis probably not such a good idea since not everybody has access to that source. A web source would be much better. Any suggestions?

too bad you can't make the game. But as I am a loyal "friend" and Buckeye supporter, I will be more than happy to use your tickets for you.

Sorry - long gone. Too many friends and famliy who know I have tickets.

I saw a list of best teams to bet on based on the spread. OSU was not in the top 75 in college football. Thats 75 out of 117, thats not good odds. With are tight to the sweater vest style, and ?????s everywhere im not throwing down till game time.

I so very much want to bet.... but I learned a long time ago not to bet on OSU games... I'm oh for 3 or 4 or something... Hey, I oughta tell Blundo that one... One of my rituals... DON'T bet the OSU game.. not really a ritual, I guess... hanging my flag, reading the paper on the crapper and getting my football propped up on a reclining chair (and always in that order) may apply... :biggrin:
