Ohio State is listed as a 7.5-point home favorite for this game with a ML price of -350. The total for this game is set at 132.5 points.
For Wisconsin, Jay Heath is out for the season with a lower body injury while Ohio State has a clean injury report coming into this game.
Wisconsin’s 78-68 win back on January 13th, 2022, snapped Ohio State’s two-game win streak in this matchup.
Wisconsin is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home. Ohio State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.
I’m sticking with Ohio State here. The Buckeyes haven’t been great, but Wisconsin hasn’t covered a game in well over a month and are riding a double-digit ATS losing streak coming into this game. A lot of Ohio State’s recent struggles came on the road, but last time they were at home they put the boots to a decent Iowa team and I think they can get one over on the Badgers here. Give me Ohio State laying the points.
