Ohio State vs. Rutgers Total Pick

Will Ohio State vs. Rutgers go under 54? College Football Predictions

Is No. 11 Ohio State likely to struggle on offense when it hits the road to face Rutgers on Saturday at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Ohio State is the clear favorite on the road in this game, as the Buckeyes are getting odds of -30 points against Rutgers. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 54 points. Ohio State has won all three Big Ten meetings with the Knights and the two have hit the under in their last two encounters. Saturday’s game takes place from High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. The game will air live on the Big Ten Network.

Ohio State has won two straight since the loss to Oklahoma. The Buckeyes are now 3-1 overall, 1-0 in the Big Ten and 2-2 with the over/under total. Ohio State is holding opponents to 20 points and 367.3 yards per game this year. The offense is putting up 39.3 points and 549 yards per contest. J.K Dobbins has run for 520 yards and three touchdowns to lead the offense. J.T. Barrett has thrown for 966 yards and 10 touchdowns while also rushing for 174 yards and two scores. Parris Campbell has caught 18 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns.

Rutgers is coming off a 27-17 loss at Nebraska last week to fall to 1-3 on the season and 0-1 in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights are 3-1 with the under this season. Rutgers has had a good defensive effort, allowing just 18.3 points and 298.3 yards per game this season. Offensively, Rutgers isn’t great. It is averaging 27.3 points and 326.8 yards per contest. Kyle Bolin has thrown for 642 yards and three touchdowns this season, but also has six interceptions. Gus Edwards has run for 259 yards to lead the offense.

Bet on Ohio State vs. Rutgers

The total isn’t set very high, but the trends say go with the under. Ohio State is 17-8 with the under in its last 25 games following a win. Rutgers has hit the under in four straight Big Ten games and in six of its last seven overall. Ohio State has a defense that should be able to shut down Rutgers and I think going on the road will impact the Buckeyes’ offensive output. I like the under to hit in this one.
