If you had to bet the house, how do you play it this weekend?

This was so much easier when Coach Tressel was here because we all knew he wouldn't run up the score on another team.  And when you think about it, by playing the 2nd and 3rd string so early, they got more value out of these types of games than did the starters.

I think Buffalo may be able to get two lucky TDs and Ohio State will score more than six TDs, so the over 55 is the best play.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

I'm giving the points, the over is tempting, but I can too easily see 49-0

This game won't be a shut out.  OVER all day long.

Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust...but life goes on.

I thinking Urban goes all "Cooper vs. Pitt" on them... 77-3 maybe. I'll take the Buckeyes -35.5

I think the Buckeyes score over 55 points by the end of the 3rd quarter.

The over is the best bet in about any game.

Help is on the way.

Michigan Sucks!

I got the Bucks at -34.5 (just under 5 TD's (and 5 extra pts.)). I'm pretty confident w/ that pick. I'd say the over is a pretty safe bet because I can see the Bucks droppin' 56 by themselves. I just hope they let Brax play into the 3rd quarter b/c he needs to get off to a good start in the Heisman race. I'm calling either a special teams TD or a defensive TD which will help the over.

I like 34.5 but I wouldn't feel comfortable with anything more. I definitely agree that over 55 seems like a pretty safe bet. It actually might even look silly in hindsight. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

I'll give the points, but the over is pretty sexy as well.  Anyone else have visions of Wilson running the opening kickoff back?

42-14 would satisfy the over and is a realistic score; however, I think the Bucks may score 55 alone (may also give up 20+ too). I'll take the Over. 

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

If i could i would take the first half under 27.5 just b/c i could see both teams struggling a tad out of the gate. Of course i am just awful at betting, so this probably means the offense will be firing on all cylinders and we drop 42 in the first half.

That over is free money. This game isn't going to be a shut out, and with a less dynamic offense, against a slightly better team, OSU still scored 50+ points in their opener last year.

funny - but now I'm hungry. Put those over easy eggs on top of some home-made corned beef hash with a side of buttered toast and we'd have a pretty good pre-game breakfast.

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Bet the farm. Give the points and take the over.

Over 55.  Bucks put 63 on Nebraska last year.

This team has been through the ringer in the offseason...teammates in legal limbo, their coach being trashed and had their accomplishments of last year undermined and disected by the media. There ia a point to be proven...see coach meyer cranking it to 11 pregame and never letting off the throttle. So i will take the over easily.
