Ohio State vs. Michigan CBB Prediction:

The road team in this series is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams, but I cannot back an Ohio State team that has been terrible at the betting window. The Buckeyes are just 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games overall, are 1-6 against the number in their last seven games coming off a loss and are winless at the betting window in their last five road games versus a team with a winning home record. Michigan hasn’t exactly been a covering machine either, but at least the Wolverines are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five home games.
