Shane’s Free Pick

This Ohio State team is talented and their record doesn’t do enough justice for how much talent the team has. They are finally getting hot at the right time, and they are going to find success scoring here. This Michigan State has been inconsistent this season and they are going to finish with less than 60 points here. Back Ohio State against the spread. 

Shane’s Pick Ohio State +3.5
