Virginia Tech vs Ohio State prediction

Virginia Tech looked great in its win over Richmond, but now it goes on the road, where it's 2-9 SU on the season. Ohio State is 14-4 SU at home, where it hasn't lost since February 6. Ohio State has also covered 8 of its last 10 games. Ohio State has found its offense the last couple of weeks, and the road / home splits for the Hokies and Buckeyes have me leaning toward OSU. I'd need more points to truly consider Virginia Tech. Give me the Buckeyes and the reasonable line.
