The Buckeyes are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Wildcats are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 9-21-1 ATS in their last 31 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Buckeyes last 7 overall. The over is 9-3-1 in Wildcats last 13 games as an underdog. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are probably the team that's going to turn things around a lot quicker, as just a couple of weeks ago people were talking about this being a national title contender. The Northwestern Wildcats have been awful for majority of the season, and that includes a 7-11 ATS record on the year and a 2-8 ATS record at home. With that said, I'm not laying chalk with an Ohio State team that's lost six of its last seven, has failed to cover four of its five road games and is shooting just 40.4 percent from the field in its last five games overall. Give me Northwestern and the points.
