Ohio State Buckeyes | Big 10 (East)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (-105), Win Conference (+183)
SSA Model Pick: None
Urban Meyer is 49-4 in conference play at Ohio State, but the Buckeyes only have 2 conference title in his 6 seasons. They are the favorite to win the conference this year but the futures market doesn’t offer a good price on the Buckeyes.

Win Total Analysis
10.5 wins (-115/-105)
SSA Model Pick: Under (High Confidence)
The non-conference schedule for Ohio State this year is soft. Given that, it’s still possible for Ohio State to lose two or more games in Big 10 play. Games at Penn State, at Michigan State, and vs. Michigan will be a challenge.
