The Ohio State Buckeyes meet the Michigan Wolverines. Hard-core fans call this match-up ‘The Game’ for short.
US online sports betting sites estimate the odds in favor of Ohio State at (-11.0; 10/11). The odds are certainly valid since the Buckeyes’ winning streak in The Game is ongoing for 5 years.
But there’s a catch. Michigan demands a rematch for what happened last year. For what is probably the most controversial game in College Football history!
First of all, it marked the first double overtime ever occurred by The Game. But the real juice is the very blurry first down of Ohio State that many disagreed. Take a look yourself:
If the referee hadn’t called this a first down, Michigan would have won right then. But it was ruled a first down and Ohio State played on to win 30 to 27 points.
This rematch is worth a watch indeed. So what do you think about what happened last year? Which team are you betting on this year?
Remember, the winner gets to represent the East Standings at the Big Ten Championship. So, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most anticipated NCAA Football matches in 2017.
Alabama v Auburn AKA The Iron Bowl
As for the game that will decide the West Standings in the SEC Championship, it’s nicknamed ‘The Iron Bowl’. Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers are here to settle the business!
Alabama was crowned winner of NCAA Football 4 times in the past 10 years! It only makes sense that Alabama has higher winning odds at (-4.0; 20/23) according to Paddy Power Sportsbook. Not only that, but Alabama won 4 times in the past 5 Iron Bowls.
On the other hand, Auburn coach Mr. Gus Malzahn said at SEC Media Days that he hadn’t felt this good about his team since 2013. Yes, it’s the year they beat Alabama. The Auburn coach seems to be foreshadowing something. Will the miraculous Kick Six occur again?
The Iron Bowl is no doubt one of the most anticipated NCAA Football matches in 2017. Head to online gambling sites in USA now and place a bet on your team!
