Ohio State has been a dominant force on the road


The Ohio State Buckeyes are 25-1 SU and 17-9 ATS in their last 26 games on the road. The Buckeyes will try to pick up a sixth straight road win this Saturday against Iowa.

  • Ohio State is 12-1 SU in its last 13 games against Iowa.
  • Ohio State is 26-9-1 ATS in its last 36 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of Iowa’s last five games at home.

Ohio State re-established itself as the team to beat in the Big Ten with a thrilling 39-38 victory over Penn State last Saturday. J.T. Barrett quieted critics who have suggested he struggles in big games and dramatically improved his Heisman Trophy chances with a brilliant performance against one of the nation’s best defenses. Barrett finished the day 33-for-39 for 328 passing yards and four passing touchdowns and added 95 rushing yards on 17 carries.

Iowa topped Minnesota 17-10 last Saturday as a 6.5-point favorite, improving to 8-0 SU and 6-1-1 ATS in its last eight games as a betting favorite. Unfortunately for Hawkeyes backers, that same success isn’t found when the team is a betting underdog, going 2-8 SU and 3-6-1 ATS in its last 10 games as a dog, including an 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS record this year as one.
