Earlier this month Ohio State announced senior quarterback Braxton Miller would miss the entire 2014 season after he re-injured his throwing shoulder during a practice. All eyes are now on redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who will assume the starting job moving forward. While Urban Meyer can recruit with the best of them and OSU benefits from not having to face Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa this year, Barrett will be under plenty of pressure throughout the season.

Navy, meanwhile, is led by dynamic quarterback Keenan Reynolds, who will led an offense that also boasts playmakers at the skill positions and an experienced offensive line led by Jake Zuzek and Bernard Sarra. The question marks are on defense, which lost both of its starting inside linebackers from a year ago and could have trouble stopping the run this season.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Ohio State is a 14.5-point favorite over Navy for today’s game, while the over/under total is sitting at 53.5 points. The Buckeyes were once favored by as much as 19.5, although that was before Miller went down with his injury. The total also opened as high as 63 at some books, but has been bet way down with the absence of Miller.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Navy. According to latest college football trends, the Buckeyes are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games on fieldturf. The Midshipmen, meanwhile, are 4-0 against the number in their last four games overall, 5-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games on fieldturf.

2014 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 1 FREE PICK: NAVY MIDSHIPMEN +14.5
