Ryan’s Ramble: Us against the house

New, 4 comments

Welcome back to your one

Ryan’s Ramble is back with another episode full of random college football discoveries, hot takes, and a whole lot of betting picks.

After finishing 8-5 on last week’s card, including a +240 parlay hit, that brings Ryan’s Ramble’s overall record to 28-25 on the year. It’s nothing crazy, but I’ll take a 52.8% win percentage everyday of the week and twice on Sundays; it’s us against the house.

Back to back winning weekends has my confidence riding at an all-time high and I can’t wait to extend the streak to three consecutive Saturdays.

Before I get into my card for this Saturday, I always like to start each episode by discussing what we have learned since we last spoke:

What we learned last week

  • TCU’s defense isn’t the all powerful force we all assumed it would be
  • Iowa’s offense might be their own kryptonite
  • Clemson and the ACC are done
  • Is Baylor… good?
  • Spencer Rattler is not the second coming of Jesus
  • Graham Mertz is arguably the worst QB in power 5
  • UTSA are the peoples champion

For more context on each of these talking points, be sure to check out the full length episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or YouTube!

Now, for the moment we’ve all been waiting for, my full card for week 5 of college football:
