Ohio State vs Rutgers Betting Prediction

This might be a home game for Rutgers, but I expect they are going to struggle in this game. Rutgers offense has been a bit of an issue heading into this game and it’s going to be a issue again in this game. Look for Ohio State to run up the score like they did in the last game and that is going to be the difference as Ohio State is going to get the job done. Back Ohio State against the spread.
