Betting Preview

Ohio State only lost one game this season but it cost them a chance at the big 10 title game. They lost to the eventual winner Penn State 24-21 which now makes them the first NCAA football team to be selected for the College Football Playoff who hasn’t won their conference championship. They finished the year winning their last five games but scored 30 points or less in three of them.

The Buckeyes faced four ranked teams this season and in three of those games were held to 30 points or less including the loss to Penn State. They have an offense that averages over 200 yards rushing and passing while scoring 42.7 points a game. Their defense is ranked in the top six in the country in passing, total defense and scoring defense (14.2 points allowed) as no opponent scored above 27 points all year.

Clemson also lost one game this year and have the chance to make up last year’s loss in the Championship game to Alabama where they were beaten 45-40. Their ninth ranked offense is led by quarterback Deshaun Watson who has thrown 37 touchdowns and passed for over 3900 yards.

The Tigers average over 500 yards and 40.2 points a game while finishing out the regular season with three straight wins where they outscored those opponents 133-55. They too have a good defense and are ranked 19th in total defense while giving up just 18.4 points a game.

The oddsmakers have made Ohio State a three point favorite and set the total at 59. According to Covers.com Consensus Analysis 61% of the public can’t resist the Tigers as a dog and are backing Clemson while 59% believe the offenses will be able to score and favor the over.

SERVICE BIO

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

- Perfect 5-0 Super Bowl Card (2018)

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
