Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State suffered its first loss of the season a week ago, at home, against Syracuse. The loss has dropped the Buckeyes to No. 20 in the latest AP Poll.
The Buckeyes bounced back over the weekend with their first win in their first Big Ten game. Ohio State stormed past Minnesota, 79–59, thanks to a 21–2 run in the first half. Six different Buckeyes scored in double-digits.
Ohio State may have missed out on the College Football Playoff but this team is going to hang tight in the Big Ten all season, just like a year ago. This is an opportunity to get to 2–0 with the first road win.
Illinois Fighting Illini
Illinois certainly looks ripe for OSU to do just that. The Illini have lost six of seven, their only win in that stretch coming three games ago to Mississippi Valley State.
The six losses have all been to pretty good competition, though: Georgetown, Gonzaga, Iowa State, Xavier, Notre Dame and Nebraska. That’s a pretty tough schedule leading into a Big Ten schedule (of course, Nebraska was the start of it).
Trent Frazier scored just nine points in thirty-six minutes and Aaron Jordan scored just five in thirty-two. Those two guys are important for an offensively-challenged Illini bunch.
CBB Betting Trends:
- OSU are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 Wed. games.
- Under is 8-3 in OSU last 11 neutral site games.
- Under is 5-2-1 in ILL last 8 Wed. games.
- Head to Head: Under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
