Ohio State Buckeyes vs Michigan Wolverines Betting Preview
The Buckeyes, despite being on the road, have displayed dominance in recent scores and odds. In their last four victories, they allowed a mere 32 points. Notably, Ohio State’s quarterback, Kyle McCord, has been exceptional, recording 20 touchdown passes. The team’s offensive prowess is further highlighted by a scoring average of 33.3 points per game, coupled with a stingy defense allowing only 9.9 points per game.
Marvin Harrison Jr. has been McCord’s standout target, amassing 59 receptions, 1,063 yards, and 12 touchdowns. On the ground, TreVeyon Henderson has been a force, accumulating 648 yards and 8 touchdowns. The Buckeyes are eyeing a win to secure their spot in the Big Ten title game and a potential journey to the College Football Playoff.
Michigan, recognized for its formidable defense, has allowed a mere 7.5 points per game, making them the only team statistically superior to the Buckeyes in this regard. J.J. McCarthy and Blake Corum have been pivotal contributors on the offensive end, with McCarthy throwing for 2,194 yards and 18 touchdowns, 10 of which went to Roman Wilson. Corum, approaching the 1,000-yard mark, boasts an NCAAF stats-leading 18 touchdowns.
Despite the Wolverines’ defensive prowess, the game is poised to be a close encounter. Michigan’s recent milestone of securing their 1,000th win is juxtaposed against the ongoing controversy surrounding head coach Jim Harbaugh’s suspension. Interim head coach Sherrone Moore has taken charge for the past two games.
Ohio State Buckeyes vs Michigan Wolverines Betting Prediction
In this big rivalry, both teams have a lot at stake, with implications for the College Football Playoff. While the losing team still has a chance, victory is crucial. Anticipating a closely contested battle, we are going to take the home team to come away with the win here.
Too much Corum running the football, and McCarthy makes the plays that he needs to make. Michigan has had the upper hand in this series as of late, and they come away with a home win here. That sets the Wolverines up for the Big Ten title game against Iowa, while the Buckeyes once again have to await their fate with one loss.
Bet Michigan -3.5 over Ohio State as the Wolverines win 27-20. We hope you enjoyed our look at the Ohio State vs. Michigan odds. Best of luck with all your College Football predictions!
