COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State football is favored to win the greatest version of The Game against Michigan in the last 15 years.
Caesar’s Sportsbook made the Buckeyes a 7-point favorite for Saturday’s game at Ohio Stadium. If that continues, it will be both the lowest point distribution of any OSU game and the first time Michigan has been an underdog this season.
According to the Odds Share database, OSU was a 6.5-point favorite in Michigan last season. The Wolverines won 42-27 to break an eight-game losing streak in the series.

Ohio State is 7-4 against the spread as a favorite this season. However, it has not covered in three of the past four weeks, including as a 28.5-point favorite in a 43-30 win over Maryland on Saturday.
