In my ongoing quest to show how I suck at gambling, I’m keeping it going this week with my Illinois prediction. Ohio State comes in favored by 32 points and the over/under is set at 67. There’s no doubt that Ohio State will roll in this game as they have a lot to prove to the people who make up the polls. I think Ohio State wins big. The issue I have is I don’t think Illinois is going to score much so I have trouble with the over/under. The way Ohio State has been playing, I think Ohio State wins by a score of 56-7. Unfortunately this is exactly at the over/under that Vegas has set. I guess those fancy casinos aren’t built by people winning. Anyway, my official picks are OSU to cover and the under (see below).
As an added bonus, here’s me in 2009 with some Illinois fans at the Varsity Club in Columbus, Ohio.

Over/Under – 67
