1. Ohio State money line and over 50.5
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
If you’re a believer in Ohio State winning this, you really should be getting more than +250 for the money line pick, but that’s the deal.
If you think it’s happening, and you think the Buckeyes are going to pull this off, then why not get a little sweetener on top of your pick?
There’s not a ton of big-time value in assuming the over will get to 50.5, but this almost certainly isn’t going to be some 9-6 battle of field goals. Alabama winning and the over on 50.5 is at -250 – there’s no point.
Any Ohio State win will be at least 51 points combined – the 22-10 Big Ten Championship win over Northwestern was the only Buckeye game that didn’t get there – so that’s the easy part.
This isn’t a flier pick, though. You have to like Ohio State in the first place, otherwise that extra +50 isn’t really enough to get you to go with this is you think Bama is pulling this off.
