NCAAF Betting Online: In Big Ten action this week, the college football betting odds include this annual season ending battle between the Michigan Wolverines (7-4) and the Ohio State Buckeyes (10-1) from Ohio Stadium in Columbus, OH on Saturday afternoon, November 27 at 12:00 ET in a game televised nationally on ABC.
It may seem like a lot of points for Ohio State to be giving at first glance, especially in a rivalry game, but when you consider the Buckeyes’ play at home this season and the play of the Michigan defense, college football betting odds point to an Ohio State blowout.
The Buckeyes’ only loss this season came on the road at Wisconsin, as they are 7-0 here at home while winning by an average of +25.7 points and outgaining their opponents by +205.1 total yards per game. Six of those seven wins were by 24 points or more, and in the only game they did not win by at least that margin, they beat Miami by 12 points solely because the Canes ran back two kicks for scores.
Even more remarkable is the fact that besides being undefeated at home, Ohio State is also a perfect 7-0 against the college football betting odds in Columbus despite their second smallest point spread at home being (-19½) vs. Penn State! The smallest spread was -8 vs. Miami, and as we discussed, they won that game much easier than the score would indicate.
So while this 17-point spread looks huge, it now becomes the second smallest spread the Buckeyes have been asked to cover at home all year, and they have been impeccable so far.
Now, Ohio State is averaging 39.6 points and 446.2 total yards per game this season, and they are going up against one of the worst defenses in the Big Ten, as Michigan is allowing 33.5 points and 445.2 yards per contest. The Wolverines have been bad vs. the run (4.4 yards per rush) and awful vs. the pass (8.1 yards per pass attempt), so Terrelle Pryor and Co. can do whatever they want for OSU.
Yes, Michigan has one of the most dynamic players in college football in Denard Robinson, who last week became the first quarterback in history to pass for at least 1500 yards and rush for at least 1500 yards in the same season. However, that does not do Michigan any good when the defense forces the offense to play from behind, and Robinson does not figure to have his usual success vs. this great defense.
In fact, Ohio State ranks fifth in the country in scoring defense (13.9 points) and third in total defense (241,1 yards), so there is no reason why they should not win this game against the college football betting odds by at least three touchdowns.
So will Ohio State blow away their biggest rivals at home, or will Michigan muster up some pride and stay inside this inflated number?
