Michigan is 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games following a double-digit loss at home. The over is 5-1 in Michigan’s last 6 road games. Ohio State is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games. The over is 6-2 in Ohio State’s last 8 Sunday games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
This is a huge game for Michigan, who is looking to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan has been inconsistent this year and hasn’t been able to play too many complete games. Ohio State played two horrible games before beating up on Michigan State on Thursday. Michigan hasn’t played the best defense in recent games and I think the over is a strong play here.
