The Ohio State Buckeyes opened as a solid -3 ½ on the road against Michigan State. They remained at -3 ½ odds across the board heading into Saturday.

The action was going slightly in favor of Ohio State but was pretty balanced at 60/40.

Ohio State is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games despite going 6-1 Straight Up in over their last seven games.

Ohio State is 12-4 ATS in its last 16 games on the road.

Michigan State is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games but are 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 games at home. They are also 1-4-1 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Ohio State.

Before this season began, Ohio State was again predicted to contend for the national title, and win its fourth consecutive Big Ten title. Its still atop the Big Ten, but it hasn't looked like a national power lately.

Michigan State, meanwhile, didn't have the same lofty preseason expectations, but it has won six games in a row to also climb to the top of the league standings.

In a matchup of conference leaders, the 12th-ranked Buckeyes again look to get their offensive woes straightened out Saturday when they visit the No. 20 Spartans, who are trying to win their seventh straight game for the first time in 30 years.

The Buckeyes (6-1, 3-0), losers of the last two national championship games, were ranked second in the AP preseason poll and were predicted to finish first in the Big Ten. Their national title hopes took a hit, however, after a humiliating 35-3 loss to then-No. 1 Southern California on Sept. 13 dropped them to 13th in the nation.

Ohio State has won four straight games since losing to the Trojans, but its been unable to make a move in the rankings due to its lackluster play.
