Michigan last year at home, 42-7. This point spread still seems to carry
Michigan in a higher light than it deserves. The Wolverines have lost three of their last four games by at least 21 points, and that was against inferior talent than what
The Wolverines have an offense capable of covering, scoring 31.3 points per-game, but the Buckeyes defense is among the best in the Big Ten.
OhioState is giving up just 12.4 yards per-game and only allowing 83.7 yards rushing per-game.
OhioState is scoring 30 points per-game and will face a
Michigan defense that is giving up 28.1 points and 400 yards per-game. Terrelle Pryor just has to not beat himself in this game in order for
OhioState to move the ball effectively and win the game.
This pick comes down to history and
Michigan struggling mightily this year. The Buckeyes have owned
Michigan in recent history and the Wolverines have not played well at all defensively. While Michigan can run the ball, the running game won’t be nearly as effective against Ohio State, leaving the game in the hands of Tate Forcier, who has just three touchdown passes and two interceptions in his last four games. With the point spread less than 14 points, the pick we suggest is
OhioState with the under.
