Ohio State opens as 20-point favorites over Michigan

The Buckeyes, as expected, are heavy favorites against their arch rivals.

Though arguably both teams were guilty of looking ahead to their next opposition on Saturday, as expected, Ohio State opens as heavy favorites for next Saturday's 2014 edition of The Game.

While the Wolverines enter things coming off a loss and the Buckeyes find themselves sans momentum after a lackluster performance against Indiana, you can toss record (and even to an extent, the line) out the door when these two hated rivals meet on the gridiron.

The Buckeyes are 7-4 against the spread in their last 9, failing to cover in consecutive weeks against Minnesota and Indiana. The Wolverines, on the other hand, are 4-7. They were favored in their final home game of the season but failed to deliver in a 23-16 loss to the Terrapins.

Ohio State and Michigan kickoff Saturday at 12 p.m. ET on ABC. For more odds, visit our partners, Oddsshark.
