Michigan State at Ohio State Preview & Picks

Ohio State are backed to win but fail to cover a huge spread.

The Buckeyes are strong on both sides of the football, but do not need to blow the doors off here.

We expect them to surge ahead, then take their foot off the gas to allow Michigan State a back-door cover in garbage time.

  • Ohio State are 0-2 when favoured by 30 points or more this season
  • Ohio State have won just 2 of their 9 games by 32 points or more
  • Only 2 of Michigan State’s 6 defeats have been by over 31.5 points
  • The Under has cashed in 7 of Ohio State’s last 9 games

Head To Head

  • Ohio State lead the all-time series 36-14
  • Ohio State won 49-20 when the two teams last met in October 2022

Michigan State Form

Michigan State go into this game having snapped a six-game losing skid to improve their record to 3-6.

The Spartans opened the season with a 31-7 win over Central Michigan and a 45-14 victory against Richmond, but it has been largely downhill ever since.

They were blown out 41-7 at home by #8 Washington, and then lost 31-9 to Maryland before heading out on the road to lose 26-16 in Iowa and 27-24 at Rutgers.

Michigan State’s slide then hit six games as they were crushed 49-0 at home by #2 Michigan and lost 27-12 at Minnesota.

The Spartans finally ended their slump last weekend though, beating Nebraska 20-17 for their first win in almost two months.

Ohio State Form

Ohio State come into this matchup boasting a perfect 9-0 record that has them top of the rankings.

The Buckeyes opened with a 23-3 win in Indiana, and followed that up with home wins against Youngstown State, 35-7, and Western Kentucky, 63-10.

They then staged a last-gasp fightback to win 17-14 at #9 Notre Dame, before beating Maryland 37-17 at home and Purdue 41-7 on the road.

Ohio State’s perfect run then continued with a 20-12 win against #7 Penn State and a 24-10 victory at Wisconsin.

The Buckeyes then made it nine-in-a-row last weekend as they saw off a stubborn Rutgers team, 35-16.

Verdict

Ohio State are the better team and they are expected to win this game comfortably.

However, the Buckeyes are yet to cover a 30-point spread and they could ease off once they open up a big lead here, so give us the Spartans with the points.
