Score: 40 - 30
Point Spread: -6½/-118 Ohio State
4 Unit Play. #407 Take Ohio State Buckeyes over Northwestern Wildcats (Saturday 8 pm ABC) This is a landmark game for the Northwestern program, as they have a chance to reach heights they have not seen since the mid-1990s. That being said I do not believe that they will be up to that challenge. Ohio State got QB Braxton Miller back last week and played outstanding against Wisconsin throwing 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. Ohio State is 28-1 lifetime against Northwestern and they have covered 4 straight times winning by an average of 43 points. Northwestern is much improved but they are not ready for the big time. Lay the points with the better team. Ohio State is 48-20 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 70 Big 10 games.
