The Ohio State offense is averaging 48.8 points per game with 303.4 passing yards per game and 226.2 rushing yards per game. C.J.

The Michigan State Spartans are 2-3 (0-2) this season after they lost to Maryland by a score of 27-13 in their last game. Michigan State looked decent on offense in the first half of this game, but was not able to score in the second half. The Michigan State offense is averaging 27.4 points per game with 243 passing yards per game and 127.4 rushing yards per game. Payton Thorne has thrown for 1,121 yards, eight touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Spartans this season.

Ohio State is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 October games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The over is 4-1 in Ohio State’s last 5 conference games. Michigan State is 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 October games. The under is 5-1 in Michigan State’s last 6 games. The under is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Michigan State has looked completely lost on defense in their last three games and Ohio State should be able to score on just about every drive in this game. Ohio State is coming off of a 39-point win against Rutgers and I think we will see something similar here. Take the Buckeyes in this matchup.
