TV Broadcast: ABC
Betting on the Ohio State Buckeyes (-25.5)
Record: 5-0 Overall / 2-0 Conference
Even with quarterback CJ Stroud not at his best, the Buckeyes made sure to stamp their class all over the Rutgers game. Stroud went 13/22 for 154 passing yards and two touchdowns with an interception but got tremendous support from the running back Miyan Williams who rushed for an insane 189 yards and five touchdowns on 21 carries. That sounds scary for Michigan State’s defense that had just allowed 175 rushing yards to the Terrapins. Ohio State is well-coached with plenty of weapons on the field, almost all are capable of exploding on any given game, let alone when against a struggling team.
Ohio State is 2-0-1 against the spread in its last three games overall.
Betting on the Michigan State Spartans (+25.5)
Record: 2-3 Overall / 0-2 Conference
It just keeps on getting worse for the Spartans, as their loss to Maryland is their third in a row. Before that, Michigan lost to the Washington Huskies on the road in Week 3, 39-28, and to the Minnesota Golden Gophers at home in Week 4, 34-7. Payton Thorne went 27/41 for 221 passing yards and a touchdown without an interception in the Maryland game, but the offense he led went kaput in the second half. Michigan State will have to find its identity on offense in a week’s time before facing off with a superpower in the form of Ohio State. Just converting more on downs to limit the time of possession of Ohio State will go a long way for the Spartans, who entered Week 5 inside the top 50 nationally in terms of third-down conversion rate.
The Under is 6-4 in Michigan State’s last 10 games.
Ohio State wins, 44-17.
