Ohio State led this game by a score of 24-9 at halftime and coasted to the victory in the second half.

Toledo is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 September games. The over is 6-1 in Toledo’s last 7 games. Ohio State is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against the MAC and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games. The under is 4-1 in Ohio State’s last 5 September games.

Ohio State has started the season 2-0, but they haven’t looked as dominant as most people thought they would. Toledo is also 2-0 this season, but they have played much lesser competition. Ohio State has the potential to blow the doors off of anyone, but we haven’t seen that yet this year. Toledo has looked very good on offense and there are some question marks with the Ohio State defense. I am taking Toledo to keep this thing somewhat respectable.
