The Ohio State football team may have just had their best game of the season after beating Rutgers 52-13. They now face a team from Maryland that battled Iowa on Friday night but have an extra day to prepare for the Buckeyes.
It’s a game that will tell us whether what we saw on Saturday from Ohio State is real or not. It’s a good opportunity for them to show continued progress right before their week off. Another good game could help them in the eyes of the College Football Playoff Committee.
Ohio State football vs Maryland Week 6 odds
The Week 6 odds on WynnBET have Ohio State as the 21-point favorite over the Terrapins right now. It makes sense after the turnover party Maryland had on Friday night, spitting the ball 6 times. The over / under is currently at 69.5, which is quite high.
Ohio State football vs Maryland Week 6 prediction
It finally looks like the Buckeyes are picking up their pace after a few tough games early in the season against inferior competition. CJ Stroud appears to be in good health and that seems to have made all the difference in the effectiveness of the offense.
Because of that and the quality of the defense against Rutgers, I like Ohio State to win 42-14. It’s Homecoming for Ohio State and a lot of the alumni will be back in town for the game. It also ends a stint in three of the last four games at Shoe. There shouldn’t be too many problems for the Buckeyes.
If they keep winning games like this, they have a clear path to the PCP. But first they have to win the game, and that’s all Ryan Day will think about this week. Most of the distractions are gone now. They can just focus on soccer.
