Expect trick plays, fourth-down gambles, just about everything in this one with Michigan having absolutely nothing to lose. Wolverines cover. 

ATS

Total

Total
Michigan has seen each of their previous 3-games go under the total with an average of just 34.0 points per contest being scored. The Wolverines are averaging a paltry 11.0 points per game in 4 road tilts this season. The Michigan defense has played well enough this season for them to be much better than a 5-win team heading into this season finale. The offense has been an enigma for the better part of the season, and has scored 18-points or less in 4 of the last 5-games.

Ohio State has seen each one of their 6-games at home go over the total in 2014, and 9 of their last 10 overall has surpassed the number. The Buckeyes have scored 42-points or more in 7 of their last 9-games.

Michigan vs. Ohio State College Football Rivalry Preview

Handicapper Jeff Grant:
Barrett has shown no signs of being overwhelmed on the football field since a 35-21 home loss to Virginia Tech on Sept. 6. I expect the Buckeyes to lead by 21-plus points at the break.

ATS
Michigan has allowed just nine points in the first half over its last three games, but it’s hard to imagine that success carrying over to this matchup, as Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has been responsible for a school-record 42 touchdowns.

Total
The Wolverines have put up some lofty defensive statistics in 2014, but they’ve also allowed a combined 66 points in a pair of road losses against Notre Dame and Michigan State. Ohio State is the main reason that handicappers would look to the OVER in this spot, as it has averaged 48.3 points in Columbus.

Handicapper Dave Lawrence:
This is defeinitely a Buckeyes win and they should cover 20 easily even though this is a rivalry game. The Wolverines are just waiting for their miserable season to come to an end.

ATS
Michigan needs a win here for bowl eligibility but one would think that beating Maryland at home last week would have been a much easier task. This is a team that has come apart at the seams and has quit on their coach. Hard to expect anything but a Buckeyes win and blowout in this one.
