So You’re Saying There’s a Chance… Live Bets on Ohio State vs. Georgia?

It’s possible. But highly unlikely.

Yes, the timing of the College Football Playoff Game with Ohio State vs. Georgia kicking off at 8:00 p.m. eastern time and the launch of Ohio sports betting coming at 12:01 a.m. is either incredibly ironic or some sick joke by the regulators. Either way, once Ohio State got into the CFP, potential Ohio bettors immediately began speculating on the possibility of getting legal bets in on the big Ohio State Buckeyes game.

Could the game run long? Overtime? Would operators accept live bets starting at 12:01 a.m. on the game if the game extends past midnight? There’s a remote possibility, but it’s a big of a long shot.

In 2018, the national championship game went to overtime and clocked in at just under four hours. Multiple Ohio State games this season have gone over 3.5 hours, including a 3 hour, 59 minute game against Wisconsin earlier in the year.

You’re going to need a lot of passing, a lot of touchdowns, a lengthy half time and probably overtime.

We’ll be monitoring this situation closely, and update our coverage with possible live bet options should this unlikely scenario materialize.

In the meantime, Ohio sports bettors can look to the Browns vs. Commanders tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. eastern, and of course the big Bengals vs. Bills game on Monday night.
