You can expect an angry Ohio State squad on Thursday night when Minnesota comes to town. It was the Golden Gophers that gave OSU their first loss of the season back on December 15th.
Ohio State has been reeling since that 71-84 loss in Minneapolis. The Buckeyes have gone 3-5 since that meeting falling out of the top 25 and finding themselves near the bottom of the Big 10 in the process.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Golden Gophers are doing good this season – at home. Minnesota is 9-1 in the comfort of Williams Arena this year but are still looking for their first road victory with an 0-6 record so far.
It’s not exactly easy to come into Columbus to get a win as the Buckeyes have also gone 9-1 on their own floor. Minnesota should have confidence to at least keep this one within 7.5 points after their win over OSU last month.
Granted that 84-71 victory was in Minnesota, but it came with the Gophers as +7.5 underdogs. Marcus Carr had 35 in that game and Minnesota big man Daniel Oturu was solid with 14 points and 13 boards.
Minnesota has had a rough go of it on the road in the conference for the most part. That includes a 20-point loss at Iowa, falling by 16 at Michigan State, and 8 at Rutgers but also taking Purdue to OT at Mackey Arena before losing.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State is 2-5 in the Big 10, but do have a reason to be optimistic with games against Minnesota, Northwestern, and Indiana upcoming that could pull them back to .500. It all starts with a win Thursday though.
The big question heading into this game is if Ohio State is slumping, or just playing poor in road games? The Buckeyes have gone 0-4 in conference play so far, leaving them 3rd from the bottom in the Big 10.
The losses on the road seem to be getting worse too, evidenced by the 76-90 defeat at Penn State and dropping a 12-point game at Indiana on January 11th as a -2.5 favorites. That’s two no-shows for a former top 5 squad.
Of course the good news is that Ohio State isn’t on the road on Thursday. The Buckeyes whooped that same Penn State squad 106-74 back in early December but also did lose to Wisconsin 57-61 on January 3rd.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Golden Gophers are 5-1 ATS last 6 Thursday games
- Golden Gophers are 2-7 ATS last 9 H2H meetings
- Over is 5-1-2 last 8 H2H meetings
- Ohio State is 7-3 ATS last 10 home games
Free Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Ohio State Buckeyes NCAAB Prediction:
Can Minnesota travel in this one and have the Buckeyes’ 4 losses in the last 5 games taken their toll on OSU’s psyche? Those are the big questions to answer heading into Thursday night’s conference battle.
Ultimately, with the duo of Oturu and Carr the Golden Gophers should be able to keep this one closer than the spread. It may be a 6 point loss, but Minnesota will fight.
