Why Bet on the Ohio State Buckeyes?
Heisman Trophy contender CJ Stroud leads the second highest scoring team in the nation. The Buckeyes average 46.5 points per game, ranking second in college football.

Running back Miyan Williams has scored 13 rushing touchdowns. Stroud has thrown 35 TD passes in 11 games.

Michigan vs. Ohio State Expert Betting Predictions
Ohio State hasn’t forgotten the last game versus the Wolverines. Michigan dusted the Buckeyes 42-27. Like in the game last season, Ohio State is the chalk in this one.
The problem with backing Ohio State to cover the line is that by doing so, we must turn our back on both significant trends and past history. Jim Harbaugh had trouble beating the Buckeyes. So what Harbaugh did was design defensive schemes that countered Ryan Day’s offensive strategy.
The schemes worked to perfection last season. This season, the schemes should also work. They may not work enough for the Wolverines to win, but Michigan should cover the spread.
Yes, Michigan should cover even though top running back Blake Corum is listed as questionable because giving the Wolverines over 7 points is too much. Michigan covers.
