Ohio State is 11-0 overall and 7-0 in the Big Ten Conference, which has led directly to its No. 3 ranking in the current BCS standings. The Buckeyes are averaging 48.7 points and 530.9 yards per game—something to consider when looking over the college football betting lines in Week 14. Senior running back Carlos Hyde is the first player to rush for 1,000 yards in a season under head coach Urban Meyer, while quarterback Braxton Miller paces the conference with a passer efficiency rating of 165.8. Ohio State is 6-1 SU and 4-3 ATS as road favorites the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 6-1 in that situation.
The Buckeyes will likely prove victorious in this heated rivalry, as Meyer has compiled a dominating 33-3 SU record in November over the course of his career. Ohio State is in the midst of a school-record 23-game winning streak, but its important to point out that Michigan has interrupted undefeated seasons for the program on five occasions. On the defensive side of the football, Ryan Shazier is the player to watch, as he has tallied a Big Ten-leading 19.5 tackles-for-loss.
Michigan has dropped three of its last four games, as it prepares to honor 17 senior football players that will play their final game at Michigan Stadium, which can’t be ignored when making your college football predictions. The Wolverines own a 58-45-6 advantage in the all-time series, but have lost eight of the last 10 meetings, including a 26-21 setback as four-point road underdogs last year. Michigan is 1-4 SUATS in its last five opportunities as an underdog of 10.5 to 21 points, with the UNDER going 3-2 in that situation.
The Wolverines are going to need a big game from quarterback Devin Gardner to pull off an upset in this spot, as he’s accounted for at least two touchdowns in 13 of his last 16 games. His main target will be wide receiver Jeremy Gallon, who is the 10th Michigan player to surpass 1,000 receiving yards in a single season.
Sports bettors will likely back the Wolverines due to their 5-1 ATS mark following a SU loss.
