Against The Spread Pick
Big Ten play rolls on as the Minnesota Golden Gophers will look to end their road struggles as they visit Value City Arena for a duel with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Both teams are coming off losses and will be looking to bounce back. The Gophers have had bad luck in recent meetings with the Buckeyes and hasn’t covered the spread in their last five visits to Value City Arena. Ohio State is 0-6 ATS in their last six games, and their production has been near terrible. Hopes looked high early, but it just hasn’t come together down the stretch. Luckily they are at home in this match-up and the Gophers struggles on the road should prove to be the downfall for Minnesota. Take Ohio State to cover 7.5 points.
Over Under Pick
Both teams have had plenty of struggles this season, but Ohio State has had better energy on their home court this season. Minnesota’s best road performance came in their game at arguably the hardest environment in the Big Ten, as they only lost by five points at Purdue. Six of the last eight head-to-head meetings between the Gophers and Buckeyes have resulted in over totals. The last two meetings resulted in a total of over 130 points. Therefore taking an over 134-point total is the right play.
