Perusing NCAA lines at RealBet this Thanksgiving Weekend I thought I would write a little bit about college football. As I have mentioned before, the majority of my football action is on NFL but I always look for value in the NCAA lines. As we get deeper into the season we are clearly seeing the perennial contenders excel along with a few surprises. What is nice about NCAA football on Thanksgiving Weekend is that there is always historic rivals playing each other.
NCAA Lines – Michigan State Wolverines vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
With that in mind I thought we could take a look at one game that I will be captaining from my battered La-Z-Boy this Saturday. Old school Big Ten rivals the Michigan State Wolverines will be facing off against the Ohio State Buckeyes in what should be a humdinger of a game. Both are historic college football programs who hold multiple national championships. This season both the #3 Wolverines and the #2 Buckeyes are 10-1 and this game will determine who is Big Ten East champ and most likely who will play in the National College Playoff.
Betting On College Football – Michigan State Wolverines
The Wolverines have had a stellar season, although to be fair they were picked to be in the run for Big Ten honors and top five in the nation. Helmed by star QB Wilson Speight, the Wolverines have only lost to Iowa in a low scoring upset. Although they are +6.5 under dogs on the point spread, the Wolverines are playing in Ohio so this is probably only a 3 point game. You can argue that Ohio is the slightly better team, but if this game were in Michigan it might be a pick’em.

If Michigan is a top tier team, then the Ohio Buckeyes are just as good and possibly better. The #2 nationally ranked team are an elite machine and would be the best team in the nation if it wasn’t for the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Buckeyes have everything- a potent offense headed by J.T. Barrett and gritty competitive defense. Pride is also on the line as Ohio has had the better of the Michigan over the past few years, and under legendary coach Urban Meyer the Buckeyes are eyeing their next national championship. The Buckeyes are -245 on the moneyline and that might be a tad pricey but I think they win this game even if they don’t beat the pointspread.
Online Football Lines – NCAA Football Betting
I think the bets here are most likely Ohio State on the moneyline at -245 as the pointspread is pretty dead on. I think the Over on the 45.5 Total as well could be an interesting bet. I am not sure if there is a ton of room here but it could be a good bet as I think this may turn into a serious shootout. Either way kick back with some turkey sandwich leftovers and a cold beer and enjoy what should be a classic!
