Toledo Rockets vs. Ohio State Buckeyes: odds going up

On September 17, the Ohio State Buckeyes (2-0) will kick off their third game of the season against the Toledo Rockets (2-0) at 7:00 p.m. ET in Columbus, Ohio.  

Ohio State has dominated the MAC going 35-1 against the conference’s current members.  

The only loss the Buckeyes have ever suffered against the MAC was to Akron in 1894, 12-6.

Our friends at Tipico, our official odds provider opened with Ohio State as a 31.5-point favorite,  

but it appears money is coming in on the Buckeyes as the spread has risen to -32.5 points.  

but the spread growing larger is not surprising considering Ohio State is expected to have both Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Julian Fleming return to the line-up.

This is a contest that I took a lot longer of a peek at,  

considering Ohio State, after seeing the offense roll last week,  

this is still a fairly large number for a Buckeye team who has not yet beaten the spread this season.  

This will be one that I stay away from.
