According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Buckeyes are 19-point home favorites over the Nittany Lions while the over/under currently sits at 47 points. Penn State heads into tonight's game with a 5-1 record and is 3-3 against the spread, while the Buckeyes are 6-0 overall and 1-5 at the betting window.

If you just look at the stats you would assume that OSU doesn't have any issues offensively. The Buckeyes rank 26th in yards per game (460.0), 27th in points scored (36.8) and 17th in rushing yards (229.8). But there are problems that lie beneath the surface.

Due to a struggling offensive line and efficiency issues at quarterback, Ohio State hasn't been as productive offensively as everyone that it would be at the start of the year. Unnecessary penalties, overthrows and a lack of overall production has caused the Buckeyes to leave opponents in games this year.

Ohio State is 0-5 against the spread in its last five games overall and 0-4 ATS in its last four home games. The Buckeyes are also 1-5 at the betting window in their last six conference games and 0-5 ATS in their lat five games following a win. Lay the 17 points at your own risk.
