Point Spread Pick:
Comparing common opponents what stands out is the Buckeyes 7-point road win in Iowa versus the 18 point loss by Michigan. You have to give some of the credit to the Ohio State defense for holding the Hawkeyes to 3 of 20 from 3-point land but for the most part it is just a bad overall shooting effort by Iowa. You just knew that Iowa would respond in a big way they’re next game out and the Wolverines had the unfortunate scheduling to be their next opponent. Ohio State is 14-2 straight up at home but has lost 2 of their last 4 as the host. The trend here favors the underdog and that’s where our money will be going. Take the Michigan Wolverines +4.
