“The betting public believes in Ohio State and they are willing to lay 17 points on a team that is playing on the road,” observed Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

Aside from the two Thursday teams, Ohio State was the third most wagered on College Football team of the week even with that huge spread.

The Buckeyes shut out Illinois last season by a score of 30-0.  They were at home.   While Illinois has lost its two recent home games in this series, they did manage to cover the current spread.  Ohio State has been dominant in this series, winning 5 of the last 6.
