Ryan’s Ramble: Slowly but surely

New, 7 comments

Welcome in to your one stop shop for all your college football betting needs.

Welcome to Ryan’s Ramble, your one stop shop for all your sports betting needs here at Frogs O’ War.

Last week’s picks didn’t go as planned, but it was certainly an improvement from the horrendous week 1 fiasco. Regardless of the results, we’re here to have a good time, talk about some football, and sweat out some bets together.

From here on out, I’ll be starting each podcast with a “What we learned” segment where I break down any realizations or new takes I might have after the prior weekend of football. Here are some of my talking points after week 2:

What we learned

  • Miami (FL) is not back
  • Oregon looks legit, CJ Verdell is a beast
  • Notre Dame is overrated (as always)
  • Iowa might have the best defense in the country
  • Welcome to the SEC, Texas
  • USC is overrated

For more context, you’ll have to listen to the podcast (shameless self-promo, I know).

I know we haven’t gotten off to the best start, but for some reason the mojo is flowing this week. Are you really a sports bettor if you aren’t delusionally confident in all of your picks? Losing confidence is when Vegas wins; we can never let Vegas win.

With that being said, let’s ride:
