Ryan’s Ramble: Hotter than a hot potato

New, 1 comment

The confidence is riding high for another edition of Ryan’s Ramble: your one-stop shop for all your sports betting needs.

We can’t stop winning! Ryan’s Ramble is back and looking to keep the hot streak alive following a combined 26-12 record over the last three weeks of picks.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ryan’s Ramble or find yourself questioning: What does all this mean? Well, this is your one stop shop for all your sports betting needs here at Frogs O’ War.

We talk college football, college football, and more college football on the weekly podcasts scavenging through some of the biggest matchups and lines to look out for ahead of each Saturday.

There is a lot that goes into sports betting, and with that being said I always like to take note of some of the biggest trends and revelations from the previous week of football. I try my best to use this information and apply it towards making better, more informed picks for you all. Here is what we learned after week 5:

What we learned last week

  • Georgia’s defense is legit beyond belief
  • Cincinnati and BYU may both have a playoff case by the end of the year
  • Classic Pac 12 is back, nobody wants to go to the playoffs
  • Kentucky might actually be a dark horse out of the SEC East (weird)
  • Breece Hall is still really good at football
  • Iowa’s defense is their best offense
  • The Big 10 is by far the most exciting conference to watch right now

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

We’re sitting pretty with a 55.4% win percentage on the year (36-29), so let’s keep the streak rolling with another week full of winners. Let’s get right into this week’s card:
