Why bet on Ohio State versus Michigan State?

Kenneth Walker can have a great game and the Buckeyes could still roll Sparty. The reason? On Saturday, the Michigan State defense faces the top scoring team in the nation. The Buckeyes average a ridiculous 46.3 points per. Versus Purdue, a team that beat Michigan State, Ohio State scored 59 points. Purdue scored 31, not bad, but it wasn’t close to what the Buckeyes posted. Michigan State won’t be able to keep up on the scoreboard.

#7 Michigan State at #4 Ohio State Final Betting Prediction

No doubt, the Ohio State Buckeyes showed the college football world why the CFP has ranked them fourth in the nation. The Buckeyes dominated Aiden O’Connell, David Bell, and the rest of the Purdue Boilermakers in one of the most lopsided victories of the season between Top 25 ranked teams.

But although Ohio State looked fantastic in the win against Purdue, Michigan State is a tough team to deal with. Sparty allows just 22.5 points per.

One of the reasons the defense is so effective is because Michigan State controls the clock with Kenneth Walker III. If the game gets out of hand like it did for the Spartans versus Purdue, Ohio State will roll. 

But if the game is similar to the Buckeyes’ Penn State game, where OSU won straight up but lost against the spread, MSU could take this on the moneyline. Either way, at -19 Ohio State is an underlay. Michigan State to cover is the play.
