Score: 61 - 64
Total: -102/+134½ Under
*4 Star Play Under* The Rutgers Scarlet Knights aren't quite as bad on offense this year as they were a year ago, but they aren't good. They rank 294th in the country in effective field goal percentage offense. Rutgers averages less than one point per possession on the year, and they are at only 0.975 points per possession in the Big Ten thus far.
Ohio State is a solid offense at 33rd in offensive efficiency. The Buckeyes are even better on defense though. They rank 22nd in defensive efficiency. The Buckeyes prefer to slow the game down, and Rutgers is most comfortable at this pace as well.
In their two games against each other last year the final totals were 131 and 114 points.
Rutgers has seen 5 of their last 10 games stay at 125 points or lower in regulation. Ohio State gave up 86 points against Michigan State last game, and I think that has a lot to do with why the line moved up here, but Rutgers isn't Michigan State.
Take the under.
