NCAA Football Betting Odds:
The Huskies turned in a 10-3 record this season that included a 7-2 performance in Pac-12 play. This led to a two way tie alongside Washington State for the No. 1 spot in the North Division. But since the Huskies got the best of Washington State late in the season, they came out on top in the division. In the Pac-12 Championship game, Washington would face No. 17 Utah. The contest ended up being a bit low-scoring but Washington came out on top in the end 10-3. Now they look to add another victory to their resume in the 2019 Rose Bowl. Without a doubt the numbers favor the Buckeyes here, which is bad news for Washington. Right now Ohio State is scoring 43.5 per game while Washington delivers 26.6. Defensively the Huskies have a decent edge however as they’re only giving up 15.5 while the Buckeyes allot 25.7.
Players to Watch: Jake Browning (2,879 passing yards, 16 TD, 10 INT), Myles Gaskin (1,147 rushing yards, 10 TD, 4.9 AVG), and Aaron Fuller (794 receiving yards, 4 TD, 51 REC).
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes turned in a 12-1 record this season. In addition, by posting an 8-1 record in conference play, Ohio State managed to finish No. 1 overall in the East division. This garnered an invite to the conference championship where they would face No. 21 Northwestern in a 45-24 winning battle. In the end they enter this New Year’s Day matchup with the better offense and should make quick work of Washington’s defense. This is because, even though the Huskies have great defensive numbers, they put up those numbers against some of the worst competition in the nation. Facing Ohio State in a Bowl Game, the Buckeyes should be able to assert their dominance.
Players to Watch: Dwayne Haskins (4,580 passing yards, 47 TD, 8 INT), JK Dobbins (1,029 rushing yards, 9 TD, 4.6 AVG), and Parris Campbell (992 receiving yards, 11 TD, 79 REC).
