Three things you should know before betting on Ohio State-Michigan: 

1. Ohio State has gone 17-2 straight-up and 13-6 against the spread versus the Wolverines since the start of 2001, and the Buckeyes haven't lost to the Wolverines since November 26, 2011. That's right, Ohio State is on an 8-game winning streak in this rivalry, and the Buckeyes won those contests by an average margin of 14.4 points per game. Ohio State has also been rolling coming into this one, as the Buckeyes have won their last two games by a total of 77 points. Those victories didn't exactly come against weak competition, as they were over the Michigan State Spartans and Purdue Boilermakers. 

2. Since the start of the 2019 season, the Buckeyes are 12-3 against the spread when coming off a home victory. The Buckeyes are also 11-0 straight-up and 9-2 against the spread when playing as road favorites under head coach Ryan Day. If you need some more, Ohio State is 15-2 straight-up and 12-4 against the spread when coming off a cover as a double-digit favorite in that time. 

3. Each of the past seven games in this head-to-head series have gone Over the total, with an average of 71.4 total points having been scored over the seven, all of which were straight-up victories for the Buckeyes. If you go back further, 14 of the past 19 meetings have gone Over the total.
