No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers OVER 56.5 points (-110)
As was the case with the Pac-12 Championship total, the Big-10 Championship’s total is steadily climbing. Since opening at 52.5, the number’s ballooned to 56 and your window to lock this in at a value is closing. Ohio State is getting a whopping 15.5 points per FanDuel Sportsbook. In the Buckeyes last 12 games as a favorite of 10 or more points, the over is 11-1 and 5-1 in the team’s last six games away from Columbus. For the Badgers, each of their last four conference games have eclipsed the set total.
Ohio State’s defense proved vulnerable last weekend against Michigan, surrendering 396 total yards and 27 points. Wisconsin’s already fleeting shot at the CFB Playoff rests on winning this game. While that might not be enough to propel them to an outright win, the motivation of playing for a National Championship could make a difference for Wisconsin’s offense. Not to mention, it’s hard to imagine Ohio State’s fifth-ranked offense not doing its part.
