Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Ohio State Buckeyes NCAA Betting Odds
Posted by: Mike Davis
The college football betting season is off and one team sportsbook players can’t take their eyes off is Ohio State. The Buckeyes are coming off a highly successful 12-2 season. But despite all that success, Ohio State still missed out on the College Football Playoffs. But since they’re currently ranked No. 4 in the nation, Ohio State just needs to keep that ranking to secure a spot in the playoffs. With that in mind, can we expect another blowout in the Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Ohio State Buckeyes matchup? Let’s check on the legal betting odds to find out.

College Football Betting Odds:
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Scarlet Knights kicked off the 2018 NCAA football season with a dominant 35-7 win over Texas State. All in all Rutgers found success both through the air and on the ground, amassing over 200 yards in both endeavors. Starting quarterback Sitkowski didn’t have the best of outings as he finished the day with 1 touchdown to three interceptions. Clearly the Scarlet Knights’ defense had his back as those turnovers didn’t result in the opposition scoring. Furthermore, the ground game helped secure Rutgers’ victory. This weekend, the Scarlet Knights’ defense will be put to the test as they’ll be vying to contain the No. 4 program in the nation. And in their last 4 attempts, they’ve failed epically allotting an average of 54 points to Ohio State.
Players to Watch: Artur Sitkowski (205 passing yards, 1 TD, 3 INT), Isaih Pacheco (76 rushing yards, 0 TD, 6.9 AVG), and Bo Melton (57 receiving yards, 0 TD, 4 REC).
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes brutalized Oregon State in their 2018 debut. All in all Ohio State would amass a whopping 721 total yards of offense on the day. They did give up 392 to their opponent but that’s still half of what the Buckeyes delivered. This weekend’s college football betting odds make it clear that Ohio State is the heavy favorite here. The only real question is whether or not the Buckeyes will be able to cover that spread. In their last 4 matchups against Rutgers, Ohio State has posted a 4-0 ATS record. I guess that settles that.
Players to Watch: Dwayne Haskins (313 passing yards, 5 TD, 1 INT), Mike Weber (186 rushing yards, 3 TD, 9.3 AVG), and Terry McLaurin (121 receiving yards, 2 TD, 4 REC).
