    I agree. With a little luck we get to 10-2, but that probably means beating Wisconsin and Michigan at home.

    There is much better action to be found than this, I would advise Husker fans to avoid risking their money on this prop bet.

    http://bigrednetwork.com/story/over_..._open_big_ten/
    Here are the over/under totals for some of the better Big Ten schools along with the additional betting odds:

    Ohio State Over 8.5 (-180) Under 8.5 (+150)
    Wisconsin Over 8.5 (-160) Under 8.5 (+130)
    Michigan Over 8.5 (-160) Under 8.5 (+130)
    Michigan State Over 8.5 (-140) Under 8.5 (+110)
    Nebraska Over 8.5 (-125) Under 8.5 (-105)
    Iowa Over 7.5 (+110) Under 7.5 (-140)
    Penn State Over 6.5 (-150) Under 6.5 (+120)
    Illinois Over 6.5 (-120) Under 6.5 (-110)

    So which side of the prop bet are you foolishly wagering? Both are bad bets BTW, even though one side will win.

    You apparently didn't see the little emoticon thingys ------ they imply that whichever way you bet, I would bet the opposite way. Sorry to confuse you. It was supposed to be funny. It is for those of us with a sense of humor.

    Incidentally, if I were to bet, which I will not, it would be on the overs with the stated odds. I expect you to post the idiocy of making that bet. I am waiting, with bated breath, for your reply.

    I think what GFOA was saying was that you might be able to find better odds than wagering $125 to win $100 on the over. For example, $110 to win $100.

    I think if you had to bet you should bet the overs. Not only because I think that has the best chance of coming in, but if you are posting on this board I doubt you want to start rooting for losses.

    But I agree with GFOA, there are a few other bets out there that are locks instead of this one...

    Thank you. Now I can un-bate my breath.

    Apparently the humor I intended by the post was not as humorous as I thought. It has absolutely nothing to do with wagering and everything to do with the fact that I rarely agree with material GFOA posts. It is nice to see that he has friends to defend him though.

    barring some crazy injury situation to TMart, I think 9 wins is the expectation here. 8 wins would be a disappointment.

    if TMart improves as we all think, and we can find some recievers who arent allergic to the ball, then 10 wins shouldnt be a huge suprise, but should just be looked at as progression, and a nice year. 11 wins is great year, one where we get some breaks of timely turnovers, and/or injuries to key players on the other team, or just the perfect storm that benefits our team. I'd like to believe that we can just pull it all together as a team, and win 11 on our own merit and great execution.

    "Locks"? You are joking, right?

    If you want a lock, go to the hardware store.

    If one side of a Vegas line looks too good to be true, it probably is.

    Your post lost all credibility for me, and I stopped reading, at the bolded words above.

    Unfortunately that game could result in our qb tossing up many many 50/50 balls
