According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Buckeyes are 21.5-point favorites versus the Scarlet Knights while the total currently sits at 64 points. Ohio State enters play with a 7-0 record but is just 2-5 against the spread, while Rutgers is 3-3 overall and 3-3 at the betting window.

With Barrett under center, the Buckeyes should establish a rhythm offensively after Cardale Jones failed to do so over the first seven weeks of the season. Defensively, OSU is holding opponents to 143.6 passing yards per game, which ranks fourth in the nation, and 16.3 points per game, which ranks 13th in the country. Rutgers won't be able to move the ball.

 The Scarlet Knights are 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous contest. After pulling off a miracle comeback last week versus Indiana, Rutgers falls in ugly fashion to Ohio State tonight.
