In and out of Michigan, big money is in the State of Ohio for the much-anticipated fight. According to Caesars Sportsbook, 87% of the tickets and 94% of the total dollars are at stake on the Buckeyes, who are touchdown favorites against Wolverine. Even in the state of Michigan, 86% of Caesars tickets and 95% of the money is in the State of Ohio.
A big reason why: Ohio State’s shellacking of Michigan State, then the top-10 team, last week, propelled the Buckeyes up the national rankings to No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings. Michigan is No. 5.
The combination of being underdogs and how they performed last week against Michigan State is why Ohio State is so popular. You rarely get a chance to bet Ohio State on numbers this low, especially in recent years. Michigan hasn’t beaten them in a long time either, and people are aware of that fact.”
The Wolverines were 0-5 against the spread against the Buckeyes in Jim Harbaugh’s five years as Michigan head coach. Against the distance against the top 10 teams, Michigan is 4-11 under Harbaugh.
This season, Michigan is 9-2 against the spread, tied for the top in the Subdivision Football Bowl with Oklahoma State. Two Michigan games (10-1) are not covered: a 37-33 loss to Michigan State, when it was a four-point favorite, and a 20-13 win over Rutgers, favored by 20.5 points.
At least 14 points have favored Ohio State (10-1) in its first 11 games, 6-4-1 against the spread. This game is expected to be the most staked game in college football this season. It will be beyond the most significant college grip of the season coming kickoff, and it will tackle more than a handful of NFL games.
Ohio State has won eight in a row in the competition and 15 of 16 and hasn’t lost in the Top Ten since 2018. Whether you want to rock in the stands at The Shoe singing O-H-I-O or be surrounded by Wolverine fans at The Big House screaming Hail to the Victors at the top of your lungs, Michigan vs. Ohio State will put you among the crowd to experience the electricity in person.
Ohio State vs. Michigan this year should be good
The Ohio State – Michigan game is a battle between two nationally rated programs. Ohio State started the season 2nd by the AP, while Michigan was 15th. Ohio State and head coach Ryan Day will try to slow down the Michigan attack, while Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverine defense will try to thwart Ohio State’s attack. Ryan Day has been head coach at Ohio State since 2019, while Michigan has had Jim Harbaugh piloting the boat since 2015.
Michigan vs. Ohio State means some of the best talents in the nation. Ohio State is led by Wyatt Davis, an OG who earned a preseason All-American award and is one of the top players in the Top Ten. He was a WR star at Southern Columbia High School last year and could immediately impact the State of Ohio. Michigan has longed to recruit Braiden McGregor on campus. The highly sought-after ATH from Port Huron Northern High School has future stars written all over him and could make an impact for Wolverine against Ohio State.
