Michigan vs. Ohio State Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Michigan vs. Ohio State 12/4/17

Will it be Michigan or Ohio State remain unbeaten in the Big Ten when the two rivals meet up today at 6:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Ohio State is favored in this game, as the Buckeyes are getting odds of -2.5 points against Michigan. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 136 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio and will air live on FS1.  

Michigan opened up Big Ten play on Saturday with a 69-55 win at home over Indiana. The Wolverines are now 7-2 on the season and 4-4 against the spread. They failed to cover in their one true road game. Michigan is scoring 73.6 points per game on offense while allowing just 62.2 points per contest. Moritz Wagner is leading Michigan with 15.6 points and 8.4 rebounds per game while Charles Matthews is adding 15.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest.

Ohio State is coming off an 83-58 win at Wisconsin on Saturday to improve to 6-3 on the season. The Buckeyes are 3-4 against the spread, but just 1-2 ATS at home. Ohio State is putting up 76.8 points per game this season while allowing 68.4 points per game on defense. Keita Bates-Diop is leading the team with 17.3 points and 10 rebounds per game while Jae-Sean Tate is adding 13.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Michigan vs. Ohio State

Ohio State has won two straight meetings with Michigan and the Buckeyes have covered the spread in three of the last four encounters. However, Ohio State is just 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 home games and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games following a win. Michigan is 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine road games and the Wolverines have covered in six straight Big Ten games. The public betting is siding with Ohio State tonight, but I think they are still in a transition mode while Michigan is starting to come into its own.
