    Isn't there a 3 point home field advantage built into point spreads? I don't know. I don't gamble. I like my money.

    I think it is hilarious that an Ohio State win will be an "upset" in gambling terms.

    We have 4 unbeaten teams, and history would indicate that 2 or 3 of those will lose in the next 2 weeks. That may be what is behind the point spread on this game more than anything.

    I think Ohio State wins this by double digits - possibly in huge fashion. I don't see Wisconsin running wild on the Ohio State defense, and I don't see Phillips making enough plays in the passing game to compete with what Brax and the OSU offense will do.

    A Wiscy win - by even a single point - would mean that the world has gone terribly wrong. But then again, I'm the guy who told everyone that a president who led us to 8% unemployment could not be re-elected. :)

    there is, but it's laughable to think, the spread would be 0 then on a neutral field

    I can think that if Ohio State was eligible for a post season game and bowl game that the line would be far greater leaning toward wisconsin by at
    least two to three because of the home field advantage. But since the Buckeyes are under suspension, the Badgers have already won the leaders division even if they lose to Ohio State. Maybe alot of gamblers will stay away
    from betting on this game because of that reason.

    Remember, when you buy a ticket for Wisconsin at -4, you're stuck at that number no matter where the line moves.

    If you want, watch the line on Saturday morning when the real movement can commence. If the big gamblers feel that Ohio State is nearly a lock to win this game, the line will move significantly, perhaps to where Ohio State is a slight favorite at kickoff....

    It's amazing to me that Wisconsin is favored. OSU held them under 100 yards rushing last season with almost identical personnel in the front 7, and they still had Russel Wilson and Paul Chryst... They presented a huge threat in the passing game with Wilson, but very little in comparison this season, especially with the injuries/lack of production at the QB position. Combine that with the fact that Ohio State is one of the best 10 teams in the country, and the spread just baffles me.

    I see a comfortable win to be completely honest. Something like 38-17.

    well [Mark May] predicted us to lose yesterday. Said Wisconsin was going to go for around 300+ yards rushing. Wow can he be any more unbiased towards us.

    If they go for 150 yards rushing I will be extremely shocked, let alone 300.

    He's there for one reason and one reason only: to piss off fans. It's a shame that the "world wide leader" can't provide a college football highlight show that doesn't involve that guy. I might watch it. Right now I only watch espin if there is a game or if I catch a glimpse of Charissa Thompson in a skirt on Sportsnation. Then I turn the sound down and look at her.

    Sounding like Borland might not even be able to play..and if he does..he will be very limited...which might be better than him not playing...not sure i want a LB who is my leading tackler chasing around Miller with a gimpy hammy...

    And Mark MAy can go off himself...nobody would miss him.
