Terrelle Pryor Set to Impact College Football Betting

College football betting is going to be impacted by Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in 2009.

When you make a college football bet on the Buckeyes this season it is very likely that Pryor will be a major factor in the outcome of your wager at the online sportsbook.

College football betting on the Buckeyes is likely to be popular again this season.  Ohio State can’t win a BCS game of late but they have had regular season college football betting success.  They are one of the favorites in college football betting to win the Big 10 this season and they are one of the favorites at 7-1 in college football betting to win the national title.  The Buckeyes are +140 to win the Big 10, only slightly behind Penn State who is +120 in college football betting at the online sportsbook.

Pryor is a big reason the Buckeyes are getting respect in college football betting.  He has made great strides in the off-season with his throwing and even his teammates have noticed.  Senior tight end Jake Ballard has noticed the difference in Pryor this season. "If you drop one or two balls, he's going to try and get you out of there and put somebody else in," Ballard said. "If it hit your hands, he's going to take you out. He demands a lot from us and we demand a lot from him, and all of us know we can handle it."

The Buckeyes were poor throwing the ball last season as college football betting numbers indicate, ranking 105th nationally. That will not be the case this college football bet season. Online betting shows that even the defense of the Buckeyes has noticed the change. "He has to take command and he has to be the leader," safety Kurt Coleman said. "And if you're not doing it right, he's going to tell you what you're doing wrong until you correct yourself. Honestly, he's improved his game so much."

The Buckeyes have their big game early in the college football bet season as they host USC.  A win against the Trojans in college football betting could propel the Buckeyes into the national championship picture.  Pryor will be a major reason the Buckeyes rise or fall in college football betting this season.  Gamblers making a college football bet can also look at Pryor as a Heisman Trophy candidate.  He was one of the leading contenders on the college football betting board at the online sportsbook.
