Ohio State is 7-0 in the Big Ten and is coming off a 59-31 win against Purdue.

The Buckeyes are averaging 550.3 yards of total offense. Ohio State is allowing 368 yards of offense to other squads. 

C.J. Stroud is completing 68.8% of his passes. He’s completed 214 of 311 passing attempts for 3036 yards, and 30 touchdowns to just 5 interceptions. 

Last year in a shortened season, Michigan State took a 52-12 home loss to the Buckeyes.

The over is 7-0 in the Spartans last 7 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game. The over is 4-1 in the Buckeyes last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in November and are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Although the Spartans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings against the Buckeyes, the road  team is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings.

After the big home lost last season, I look for the Spartans to keep things close in this year’s matchup. The Spartans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. They are also 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. I’ll take the points with Michigan State in this one as they have the revenge factor.
