Losing the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl to Clemson was a sore one for the Buckeyes and their fans – not to mention those who were betting on them.

However, their performance was an creditable one. hio State still topped the Big Ten Leaders Division for second-year head coach coach Urban Meyer and will look to build on this next season, which could make them a good bet to do even better in 2014.

There can certainly be no discounting the Buckeyes as Meyer possesses an enviable coaching record, and many considered Ohio State favorites to win the Big Ten. They fell a little short of that, but have shown enough by winning their division to suggest that betting on them to achieve this, as bookmakers next season will not leave you with egg on your face.

There are no guarantees of course, as outright betting is always one of the more risky kinds of sports bet, and if you prefer a form of football wager where the odds are more in your favor, try themed slot games at a casino site.

Slots like the NFL themed $5 Million Touchdown and Gaming Club online casino games are probably the lowest-risk form of gambling around – because require a very small deposit per line to play and contain numerous features designed to help you win a payout. For example the smallest amount you can bet on $5 Million Touchdown is $0.01, while there are twenty pay lines, plus a wild and scatter symbol on the reels, and a bonus game, all of which give you a better shot at a win. The actual top jackpot is $5 million, although not everyone wins that (imagine the inflation levels if we were all becoming multi-millionaires), but this game is super-cheap and virtually guarantees you will be better off when you finish playing.
