5Dimes: Ohio State 20.5-point Favorite in Blacksburg

How many points would you need to "bet against" Ohio State in Blacksburg on September 7th? I would need at least 30.

Online casino 5Dimes, however, pegs Ohio State as a 20.5-point favorite. That's two points higher than Bovada's opening line of the same game from back in February.

To play Devil's advocate (read: to be a dick), there is a case for taking Virginia Tech and the points. It's a nationally-televised home night game against the defending world champions, and they're 20.5-point underdogs. That's disrespect. 

It also still employs Bud Foster. And hell, who among us thought Virginia Tech would pull the upset in 2014? 

On the other hand, the Hokies will be up against an angry football team led by angry coaches. Makes you think, for sure...
