Ohio State looks to start a new home win streak Saturday

Ohio_state_defense

The Ohio State Buckeyes had a 7-0 SU and 4-3 ATS home streak snapped last Saturday with their 31-16 loss to Oklahoma. The Buckeyes will try to start up another winning streak at home on Saturday against the Army Black Knights.

SHARK BITES
  • Ohio State is 19-2 SU in its last 21 games in Week 3. 
  • Army is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games in September. 
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Ohio State’s last seven games in September. 

There may be legitimate cause for concern in Columbus. Urban Meyer’s offenses averaged 41.9 points per game through his first 64 games at Ohio State, but over the last five games the Buckeyes are averaging just 22.4 points per game. J.T. Barrett has struggled against elite teams and was held without a touchdown pass last week. The weaknesses of this team shouldn’t be on display against Army, but they are likely to crop up again before season’s end.

Army has shown some fight as an underdog in recent seasons with a 9-7 ATS record in its last 16 games as a dog. The UNDER is 14-1 in Army’s last 15 games as an underdog, thanks in part to the team’s heavy rushing offense running a lot of clock. The Black Knights rank second in the nation in rushing yards per game with 417.5 and dead last in passing yards per game with a measly 8.5.
