Minnesota vs. Ohio State Free Pick
After nearly pulling off the upset as a double-digit underdog last week versus Michigan, will Minnesota give Ohio State a game tonight at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Buckeyes are 23-point home favorites versus the Golden Gophers after opening at that same number. The total, meanwhile, opened at 52 and has been bet up to 53.5.
The Golden Gophers are 4-4 on the year and are now 3-5 against the spread after covering as a 12-point home underdog last weekend versus Michigan. Ohio State is a perfect 8-0 straight up but is just 3-5 against the spread this season.
Ohio State turns back to Cardale Jones at quarterback after suspending J.T. Barrett. Jones was benched for a reason, as he didn't have the same mobility that Barrett gave the Buckeyes in the spread offense. He had 1,266 yards with seven TDs and five picks. He faces a pretty good Minnesota defense and a team that gave their all last week, but fell to Michigan 29-26 under new coach Tracy Claeys after the health-related retirement of Jerry Kill. QB Mitch Leidner threw for 317 yards against an outstanding defense. The Gophers will still be motivated to try and win one for Kill.
