The Buckeyes Own the Wolverines
Ohio State owns the Michigan Wolverines and head coach Jim Harbaugh. The Buckeyes have an eight-game winning streak against the Wolverines and come into this meeting flying high. The Buckeyes stomped the Spartans in the last game and quarterback CJ Stroud is now the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. The Wolverines will need a big outing on defense if they hope to slow down this juggernaut of an offense.
Odds and Trends
Despite the dominance in this series, Ohio State is just an 8 point favorite in this rivalry game. That has caused nearly 60 percent of the betting public to bet on the Buckeyes in this game. This spread may be surprising since the Buckeyes have won the last three meetings in Ann Arbor by double-digits. Jim Harbaugh is 4-11 ATS when playing a top ten team and everyone is betting Ohio State. But are they right?
Ohio State vs Michigan Predictions
The Wolverines have a stout defense led by pass rushers Adian Hutchinson and David Ojabo who both have double-digit sacks. This defense can keep this game close. They rank seventh in defense and allow less than 17 points per game. Michigan has the rushing game to control the clock and keep this game close. The underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last seven games of this series and the Wolverines are 6-1 ATS in the last seven games overall. Look out Buckeyes, you are on upset alert.
