WMU vs. Ohio State Free Pick
Bettors can expect plenty of points today in Columbus, where Ohio State will host Western Michigan at 3:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Buckeyes are 31.5-point home favorites over the Broncos after opening as a 28-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, opened at 58 but has been bet up three full points to 61.
It's not surprising to see the total creep over 60 points. This is a perfect opportunity for Ohio State to fix the problems its had along the offensive line and passing game, as Western Michigan owns one of the worst defenses in the country. The Broncos can't stop the run and can't pressure the quarterback, which is a perfect recipe for Cardale Jones and the OSU offense to get back on track.
Western Michigan also throws the ball as much as any team in the country, which should lead to chunk plays, points, turnovers and/or three-and-outs, which can all aid scoring.
The over is 9-2 in the Buckeyes' last 11 home games and 11-3 in the Broncos' last 14 road games. Scoring shouldn't be an issue in this one.
