College Football Betting Odds:
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes burst into this weekend’s Big Ten matchup sporting an 8-1 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the Big Ten – East. With a 5-1 record in conference play, Ohio State isn’t too far behind Michigan, who lead the division thanks to their 6-0 record. Naturally, this has led the NCAA football betting odds to favor Ohio State over Michigan State this weekend. On top of that, history makes it clear that the Buckeyes have the upper hand here – despite the fact that they’re playing on the road. In their last ten matchups against the Spartans, Ohio State has posted a 7-3 record. However, considering that Ohio State recently suffered a 49-20 loss to unranked Purdue, there’s no guarantee that they’ll come out on top this upcoming Saturday.
Players to Watch: Dwayne Haskins (3,053 passing yards, 32 TD, 6 INT), JK Dobbins (684 rushing yards, 7 TD, 4.8 AVG), and KJ Hill (695 receiving yards, 4 TD, 51 REC).
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans charge into this Big Ten matchup flashing a 6-3 record that includes a 4-2 record in conference play. That 4-2 record ranks them 3rd overall in the Big Ten – East, just a couple games behind this weekend’s opponent. Interestingly enough, Michigan State beat Purdue 23-13 just two weekends ago. If the NCAA football math adds up, Michigan State should be able to deliver an upset at home. However, they’ll have to find some way to either contain or match the Buckeyes explosive offense. Right now Ohio State is putting up a whopping 42.2 points per game, which beats out the 23.4 that Michigan State is averaging.
Players to Watch: Brian Lewerke (1,740 passing yards, 8 TD, 8 INT), Connor Heyward (358 rushing yards, 5 TD, 5.1 AVG), and Felton Davis III (474 receiving yards, 4 TD, 31 REC).
