Why the Ohio State Buckeyes are a good bet -16 ½?

Ohio State is the best team in the nation. The Buckeyes average 49.9 points per game. That ranks 1st in college football. They allow 11.8 points per game. That ranks 4th in NCAAF. If Wisconsin hopes to keep this close they must try to contain Justin Fields and the Buckeyes’ offense. They must then score when they have the ball against one of the top defenses in college football. That’s asking a lot.

Wisconsin vs Ohio State Final Big Ten Championship Betting Analysis

Ohio State has gone 9-1 ATS after a win. That’s not the scary part if you’re a Wisconsin fan. The scary part is that 2 of Ohio State’s non-covers happened against FAU and Rutgers. Ohio State offered Florida Atlantic 27 points. They offered Rutgers 52.

Only Penn State kept it close. Close is relative, though. The Buckeyes beat the Nittany Lions by 11 points. Ohio State beat Wisconsin by 31 in the first matchup. What’s changed? Not enough if you’re a Badgers fan. The Buckeyes allow 91.5 rushing yards. Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor won’t find success on the ground.

The Badgers probably won’t use Taylor that much in the second half, anyhow. Wisconsin won’t stop Ohio State from moving the football and scoring touchdowns. Don’t let the spread scare you. Ohio State dominates on Saturday.
