4* MICHIGAN/OHIO STATE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: Ohio State -4
You have to be impressed with what head coach Urban Meyer has done in his first season with the Buckeyes. Despite the fact that Ohio State is suspended from postseason play, Meyer has got his team to come out and play like they are trying to earn a spot in the national championship. With last week’s 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin, they improved to 11-0 with a 7-0 record inside the Big Ten.
Not only do the Buckeyes have a chance to finish the season with a perfect record, they will be out for some serious revenge after losing to Michigan last year. Ohio State had won the previous seven meetings between these two schools, with their last three wins all coming by at least 11 points. This is a big game for Meyer, as the Buckeye faithful truly judge a coach by how he does in this rivalry game.
The fact that this game is being played at the horeshoe is enough to have most people jumping on the Buckeyes. Ohio State is 7-0 at home this season with all seven of those wins coming by at least a touchdown. The key in this game is how these two teams have played when going up against top notch opponents. Michigan is a miserable 6-15 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 3 seasons, while Ohio State is 13-4 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record over that same stretch. BET OHIO STATE!
