Jack's Free Pick Sunday!
Wisconsin vs. Ohio State,
02/26/2012 16:00 EDT,
Score: 63 - 60
Point Spread: -9/-105 Ohio State
Ohio State is showing solid value today as a single-digit home favorite over Wisconsin. I believe the Badgers are one of the most overrated teams in the country and that has certainly shown of late. This is a Badgers team that has lost to Iowa twice, and they just aren't in the same class as the Buckeyes talent-wise.
Ohio State is 23-5 on the season, and 18-1 at home this year. They are absolutely killing opponents at home this season. The Buckeyes are scoring 77.8 points and allowing 54.9 points at home this year, winning by a ridiculous 22.9 points/game. They trail the Michigan State Spartans by one game in the loss column, so they will certainly be motivated to try and win a Big Ten title.
Ohio State is 18-8 ATS in home games when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 3 seasons, including 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Wisconsin is 1-8 ATS in road games after playing a road game over the last 3 seasons. The Badgers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Buckeyes are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. Bet Ohio State Sunday.
