Alternate Spreads

Online gamblers have an opportunity to destroy the Internet sportsbooks in the National Championship Game. Surely you know somebody who claims the pointspread is way off.

Tell that loudmouth he need not bet at 11-10 odds, because if the line is truly off by several points, a sharp player can bet alternate pointspreads.

Betting Florida -2.5 pays +225. Do you like the favorite, but not sure they will win by more than a touchdown? Buy some insurance and get Ohio State at +2.5 -249.

If you are really confident, bet the exact margin of victory. Every pointspread range pays better than 3-1. Will Ohio State win by more than two touchdowns, but less than three? A Buckeye win of 14.5-20.5 is +744.

The spotlight will be on Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. The over/under on the number of yards he will throw for is 249.5 with under at +105.

Sports betting experts can also bet on the number of receiving yards by Anthony Gonzalez (over/under 58.5), rushing yards by Chris Wells (39.5) and who will be the game MVP. No shock, Smith is the odds on +202 favorite.
