Ohio State at Rutgers Preview & Picks

Ohio State are tipped to cover as they improve to 9-0.

Rutgers were blown out in their last meeting with a ranked team, and their one-dimensional offense is likely to struggle against a strong Buckeyes defense.

  • Ohio State are 3-1-0 ATS in their last 4 games
  • Rutgers are just 2-9-0 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog
  • The Under has cashed in 7 of Ohio State’s last 8 games
  • The Under hit in Rutgers’ only other game against a ranked team this season

Head To Head

  • Ohio State lead the all-time series 9-0
  • Ohio State won 49-10 when the two teams last met in October 2022

Ohio State Form

Ohio State remain on course for the College Football playoffs following their eight consecutive win.

The Buckeyes opened with a 23-3 win at conference rivals Indiana, and backed that up at home with a 35-7 victory over Youngstown State and a 63-10 blowout of Western Kentucky.

They then staged a dramatic late fightback to snatch a 17-14 victory when they visited #9 Notre Dame in late September.

Ohio State’s streak continued as they beat Maryland 37-17 at home and Purdue 41-7 9 on the road, setting them up for a showdown with #7 Penn State.

The Buckeyes won that home game, 20-12, before improving to 8-0 with a 24-10 victory at Wisconsin last weekend.

Rutgers Form

Rutgers enter this matchup on the back of a couple of victories that have improved their record to 6-2.

The Scarlet Knights opened the season with three consecutive home wins, beating Northwestern 24-7, Temple 36-7 and Virginia Tech 35-16.

Their perfect start was then halted by a 31-7 defeat at Michigan, but they rebounded quickly with a 52-3 demolition of Wagner.

Rutgers then lost 24-13 at Wisconsin, only to again issue a swift response to a loss.

The Scarlet Knights rebounded with a 27-24 win at home to Michigan State, and they then travelled to Indiana to record a 31-14 victory.

Verdict

Ohio State’s defense continues to stifle the opposition so Rutgers are unlikely to enjoy much success.

And on the opposite side of the football, the Buckeyes have the firepower to pull away and cover the spread.
