The Greek Sportsbook, a leader in online sports betting, continues its prominence in college sports with more offerings on college football for the upcoming season.
This week, The Greek Sportsbook is the first to release odds on the #1 recruiting class for incoming freshman for 2007. The Greek will use the rankings that are found at http://rivals.com one, of the premier recruiting services and websites for grading of the wager.
The battles that take place on the field are sometimes secondary to the battles that occur for players in their parents homes. Serious college football fans following the recruiting trail all year know that one key player may enable a team to move up the rankings. The Rivals.com rankings are updated daily during the academic year and change rapidly, all of which should make for competitive wagering and exciting action during the recruiting season.
The 2006 Heisman Trophy is awarded in early December but its outcome can be wagered on now. The Greek posted the odds on the Heisman award immediately following the 2005 ceremony and the current odds reflect player suspensions or other events that may have affected the market.
Senior quarterback Brady Quinn of Notre Dame is the current favorite at +250. Quinn, who considered entering the NFL draft in the off-season, should make a good case for the award with a manageable schedule and weekly national television coverage.
Adrian Peterson of the Oklahoma Sooners is the second choice at +400. The junior running back was hampered by injuries last season, but if he can duplicate his freshman season’s performance he may be taking home the award.
Ohio State’s do everything offensive weapon Ted Ginn appears a generous +1500. The Buckeye’s are one of the favorites to appear in the Fiesta Bowl and Ginn has to figure heavily in their offensive plans. Ginn’s quickness and ability to return punts for touchdowns should afford him plenty of “highlight reel” footage for the voters to see before they cast their ballots.
