Ohio State vs Michigan Prediction
The current betting odds have Ohio State listed as a 3.5 point underdog in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Ohio State has looked really good this season with their 11-0 record overall and their 8-0 conference record. Michigan has also looked really good as they have the same overall record and record in the Big Ten. Both of these teams have been the 2 best teams in the Big Ten all season but Ohio State has been looking a lot better in their games lately while Michigan hasn't looked as good as their opponents have gotten tougher. Michigan really struggled a lot in their last game against Maryland and even though they have the home advantage in this game, they are still at a disadvantage here with the 3 game suspension to Harbaugh since he won't be allowed on the sidelines in this game. Ohio State started the season a bit rocky as they didn't look great in their games, but lately they have been blowing out the weaker teams in the conference and they are going to be focused on pulling off the upset here with everything going on surrounding Michigan. Ohio State has the talent to win this game outright but even if they don't, they can keep this game close within a field goal. The best way to place a bet here is on Ohio State to cover the spread in this game.
Ohio State Michigan Prediction: Our NCAAF Pick for Saturday, November 25, 2023 (12:00 pm ET start time) is Ohio State 24 Michigan 21.
