Hawaii vs. Ohio State Free Pick
Will Ohio State suffer a letdown coming off a short week and emotional road victory versus VA Tech when it hosts Hawaii today at 3:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Buckeyes are 41-point favorites versus the Rainbow Warriors after opening as 40-point favorites. The total, meanwhile, opened at 63.5 and has been bet up to 65.
Hawaii is 9-2 against the spread in its last 11 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in its last five games in September. The Rainbow Warriors are also 6-2 at the betting window in their last eight games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game while the Buckeyes are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus the MWC.
Ohio State had a short week of rest and practice after playing Virginia Tech on Monday. The talk is that the Buckeyes should run the tables again until November when they have to play Michigan State, so look for Hawaii to catch them off guard. There's no reason for OSU to lose this game but Hawaii should keep it relatively close.
