Unless there's something I've missed we don't know how many players how cleared for participation and how many are withheld for +test or contact tracing. It is possible the remaining available players are taking steps to be prepared for the crossover game as opposed to this Saturday. We'll see.

Crazy enough, this game would be held on the exact 10th anniversary of Stanford and Harbaugh's huge upset win over USC. Not to mention that Dan Villari is cousins with the backup quarterback that led Stanford to the upset. And if you're still reading this, please know that none of this is true and I've resorted to writing Michigan football fanfiction like that MSU writer started doing this year

All depends on what level the team can play at down so many players and a 3-star QB with no backups.  Also, have to test 100% negative on every day until that bus leaves AA.

To me, still seems like a slim chance they play.  Likely a Friday decision.

Cancel the game already. Avoid the massacre. I have no plans of watching. I would rather get kicked in the balls than watch that.

Except they are practicing without pads, helmets only.  They want to give the appearance they want to play, only to have the school’s medical staff come in mid week and tell them they can’t play.

I mean, assuming they play, and assuming Villari starts, I'll tell myself that Harbaugh QBs in their first full game often have their *best* one -- McNamara, Milton, O'Korn, Peters -- before inevitably regressing, getting exposed in film session, and/or getting hurt.  Right???

The state of Michigan is obsessed with extensions today. First Whitmer. And now Harbaugh (short and long term).

I may need bourbon tonight.

Two years ago we were favored against OSU. And we deserved to be. We had won 10 straight, including shellackings of Wisconsin and Penn St. OSU got blasted by Purdue and squeaked by Maryland the previous week; giving up more than 40 points. 

Don Brown was exposed that day (as he was in the opener vs Notre Dame). Instead of putting his fastest player in Ambry Thomas out there to cover OSU’s speedy slot receivers he put Brandon Watson. A decent boundary corner but just not physically able to cut it vs OSU. The year prior, Michigan’s D gave OSU’s O all they could handle. If JT Barrett doesn’t get injured, I believe we win that game with John O’Korn at QB. Brown tried to run the same defensive gameplan and was embarrassed. No pressure, no help on the slots.

In two years we’ve gone from being favored in the shoe, and 3 years ago we probably should have beat OSU with John O’Korn at QB. 

It is when you look at this rivalry, where you really see how drastic and rapid this program has fallen.

The announcers at the PSU game said something about it, probably as a reason that he was missing passes by 40 yards and pulled out of the game in place of McNamara's injured shoulder.  Speculation abounds because Harbaugh traditionally doesn't say squat about anything.

Sweet Jesus. I hope Ryan Day knows Christmas is around the corner. Maybe his heart can grow three sizes and he can kneel after scoring 10 consecutive touchdowns?

Rutgers.... It's there in the air between us, that electricity. It's palpable. I can almost taste it, pulsing between us, drawing us together.

His relentless voice, as inescapable as his need, echoes through my headset: "Let's run the read option... but without any read." A small moan escapes my mouth as my insides melt and unfurl.

This is a beginners guide to football betting, written by a beginner ! You might not know this about me, but whilst Ian is a football betting professionnel with a long history of placing football bets, I am not ! I know the web and how to make things on it, but I don’t know a lot about football.

I do love this site though, so I wanted to learn more about football betting so that I can better contribute to the conversations on it. I have been researching things for some time and thought I would write them up as a guide to football betting.

You might wonder why I didn’t ask Ian to write this guide, him being the expert, the truth is I thought it would be better coming from someone picking up the ropes. Ian knows so much he might assume you know something you don’t, I don’t know anything so that can’t happen !

These are the two most common way to place bets these days so I wanted to cover them in a little detail. We don’t hide that fact that Ian prefers singles but that doesn’t help you if you don’t know the main differences.

When you bet with an accumulator, all your bets need to win in order for you to be able to claim the money. This makes it much harder to win but évidemment the reward is far greater. As a new bettor it is very tempting to bet on accumulators because you could see your £10 stake spiral into big bucks pretty quick.

Ian knows so much he might assume you know something you don’t, I don’t know anything so that can’t happen ! Something that you might benefit from is our free tipster courier course. It is a free fax course that takes 7 days to complete and by the end of it you should be a bit of an professionnel ! Some Football Betting TermsI figured I would start off with some football betting terms. Stake – This is the amount of money you place on a bet, in other words the amount of money you stand to lose if you don’t win. Accumulator – A football accumulator is a series of solo bets grouped together, if each of the bets comes off then the odds accumulate together. Normally when you hear of people putting a fiver on something and winning a couple of thousand it is because of accumulators. Because each bet needs to win though they can be risky. Handicap – This is a bet that is offered when one team is the clear favourite – Think Brazil vs your local old boys team ! The handicap gives a small advantage to the underdog. For example, there may be a one goal head start given to the underdog. I am going to explain Handicapping more later in this article. Half Time/Full Time – This type of bet is split into two, when you predict the winner of the first half then of the entire game. So you could predict a draw at half time but for the home team to win by full time. Banker – This is basically the closet thing to a certainty as you can get, the tipster is very sure that the bet will land if they consider it a banker. For example we give banker tips to our members. Scorecast – This is when you bet on a player to score the first goal along with predicting the convenable score. Wincast – Very similar to a scorecast but you bet on a player to score and then predict the winner of the game. Minute Betting – This is mentioned a lot when people bet on individual players ( maybe as goal scorers ) normally if the player doesn’t make an appearance the bet is called off, but if the player appears during the normal minutes of the game they are eligible for the bet. 24 Hour Rule – Most betting websites have a rule like this where if a match is postponed the bet only becomes void if the match doesn’t get played within a 24 hour period. So for example if a match was just put back 2 hours the bet would still stand. Over/Under – Overs and Unders are when you bet on the amount of goals being scored, normally it will be over or under an amount, for example over 2. 5 means if there are 3 or more goals. Under 2. 5 would be 0, 1, or 2 goals being scored. DNB – This stands for Draw No Bet. What this means is if the score is a draw you get your money back for your bet. This can be seen as a safer option but you should understand that the odds are usually lower when this is selected. Double Chance – A Double Chance bet is one where you pick a winner and if they win OR it is a draw, you win the bet. If the team you pick loses then you lose the bet. Like DNB the odds are generally lower but it is a safer bet as a result. Bankroll – how much money you have to bet with. We’ve written more about what the bankroll is. HandicapsHandicaps are something that confused the heck out of me for the longest time, so I want to spend a while looking at them in detail. This is such a common question that I have written up a guide to the Asian and European handicapping. Want to learn how to be an spécialiste football bettor for free ? JOIN OUR EMAIL COURSEAccumulators Vs SinglesThese are the two most common way to place bets these days so I wanted to cover them in a little detail. We don’t hide that fact that Ian prefers singles but that doesn’t help you if you don’t know the main differences. When you bet with an accumulator, all your bets need to win in order for you to be able to claim the money. This makes it much harder to win but oui the reward is far greater. As a new football bettor it is very tempting to bet on accumulators because you could see your £10 stake spiral into big bucks pretty quick. Singles on the other hand are not effected by other bets. So if I place £10 on three different matches as singles and 2 of them come in, then I make money on those two bets. The odds aren’t as good if I was to role up all my bets into an accumulator, but the odds of me walking away with some money are much higher.

The main advice here is to find what it right for you. Just because some people swear by accumulators and others swear by singles doesn’t mean you should listen to the loudest voice. Do some research, maybe put some small stakes on a few different ways and see what felt good and what had a good return on your investment.

Getting your way with the bookiesSomething you will encounter when you start betting is a range of different online and offline bookmakers. All will have their own way of dealing with things and all will want you to work with them differently. This can seem daunting but we’ve written up a guide on what to look out for and how to state your case if you think a bookmaker has wronged you.

There are two things I have caught myself doing related to being greedy, the first is adding extra teams into an accumulator just because it will bump up my maximum payout. This is almost always a dramatiques idea ! The second thing I have done is bet more money on a team than I initially was going to. You should have a plan for how much you are going to bet and stick to it.

You are not going to win every bet, if you want to become successful at betting on you need to be patient and pick the right bets for you. Never bet more than you can afford to loseBefore I place a bet I always think about the money I am going to be placing on it and think, if I were to lose this money right now would I be OK with that. If the answer is no I won’t place the bet.

They are too unpredictable, you don’t know how much effort the respective teams are putting in and reserve players may get an outing that you weren’t counting on. If the friendlies are before the start of a new season ( they often are ) players will be very aware to not pick up any injuries so might not play as hard as they normally do.

What I mean by this is that two teams can look a certain way on paper, but if one of those teams has already won the league and the other is fighting to stay in the league there is a very good chance that the team good on paper will be on auto pilot whilst the team playing to stay out of relegation is going to be fighting for their life !

If ever there was a post to comment on with your questions this would be it ! The only stupid question is the one not asked. We’re also really keen on hearing where we can improve this article, so if you still have questions or something wasn’t clear, it was because we’ve done a bad travail and we would love you to tell us how to do better. If you’re hungry for more, I can highly recommend our free fax course.

Unfortunately a lot of money is wasted because people place bets without really knowing too much about what they are doing. If you know someone like that please feel free to share this with them. The social media share links are below if you’d like to share on Facebook etc.
