Braxton Miller--the difference maker

Michigan has not faced a quarterback as dynamic as the Buckeye’s Miller, who has guided his team to the top scoring offense in the Big Ten at 38.2 points. Miller is a lot like Robinson at Michigan but has taken a big step forward this season and enters the final game with 1,850 passing yards and 1,214 yards on the ground.

Another rivalry that deserves some attention

Georgia Tech at (3) Georgia (-14, 63.5)

The Bulldogs prepared for Tech’s triple option with a 45-14 win last Saturday over Georgia Southern, which runs the exact same offense. And after a slow start, the Georgia defense has lived up to expectations, yielding just 33 points over its last four games. The Bulldogs have won 10 of the last 11 meetings, with Tech’s lone victory coming in Athens in 2008. Georgia has played under the total in its last five games overall.

Ohio State opened as a 5 point favorite at sportsbooks and according to the College Football betting trends, is currently receiving a whopping 76% of spread bets and 79% of parlay bets.

This heavily lopsided betting moved the line a half-point to Ohio State -5.5 before seeing some sharp buy-back knocking the line down to -4. This is an example of reverse line movement, which indicates sharp money has been coming in on Michigan.

Connecticut at (20) Louisville (-11, 45.5)

The Cardinals lost both a game and leading rusher Senorise Perry to a season-ending knee injury at Syracuse on Nov. 10, but still control their own destiny to a BCS Bowl with two victories. Jeremy Wright will get some additional carries with Perry out and he has been no slouch. Wright has rushed for 680 yards and nine touchdowns, just slightly behind Perry in both categories. The Cardinals have allowed an average of 30.6 points over their last five games. But the Huskies’ offense has been dreadful over its past three road games, averaging just 6.3 points per contest. Connecticut is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four games away from home.
