I’m backing Ohio State here. I’ve openly trashed the Buckeyes over the course of their losing run throughout conference play, but sometimes you just have to accept that a team is hot and the Buckeyes are definitely hot right now. Michigan State’s been far from convincing away from home this season and I think on the neutral floor against this suddenly hot Buckeyes team, the Spartans could be in some trouble here. Give me Ohio State and the points.
