There’s already one big-time wager on Ohio State to beat Alabama
There’s a lot of money being plunked down tonight on the College Football Playoff Championship. Turns out one bettor really, really thinks Ohio State will pull this off.
At Rivers Casino in New York, one wager came in for $54,000. We simultaneously hope that isn’t someone’s mortgage payment but also are intrigued if it is.
That has to be the monthly property tax for Billy Madison’s house, right?

Ohio State is the underdog and this moneyline wager is simply for the Buckeyes to pull off the upset. No. 1 Alabama is -8 over No. 3 Ohio State, with the over/under at 75.
It is an intriguing game, for sure. Alabama handled No. 4 Notre Dame in the semifinals, the SEC program doing what was expected to get to the championship. Ohio State is hoping to upset the coronation, coming off a strong 49-28 win over No. 2 Clemson in the semifinal.
Ohio State has not won a national championship since 2014.
If the Buckeyes end up beating Alabama on Monday night, the bet will return over $183,000. Not a bad investment.
