Play - Ohio State (Game 499).

Edges - Buckeyes: 14-0 ATS as dogs of 3 or more points since 2009, including; Ryan Day is 23-1 SU as a head coach in all games Ohio State, going 24-0 In The Stats in those games while outgaining foes by a combined 13093-7306 yards - or an average of 241 yards per game; and Day is 5-0 SUATS when coming off a win and cover of more than 21 points … Crimson Tide: Nick Saban is 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS in the postseason in his career when facing an opponent coming off a SU underdog win… With this Alabama team allowing 100 yards per game more than any of the 5 national champion teams under Saban in his career, we recommend a strong 7* play on Ohio State.  Thank you and good luck as always.


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
