The Ohio State Buckeyes regular season wins prediction had them victorious in OVER 11, priced at -110 to win UNDER that amount and -120 to win more. The Buckeyes did win 11 games last season, 12 the year before and 14 before that.
Barring a complete catastrophe, the Buckeyes should be back to OVER 11 wins this season.
Ohio State has one of the top five best quarterback situations according to sports handicapper Phil Steele of College Football Insider:
In 2014, J.T. Barrett was a Heisman contender while throwing for 2,834 yards (64.6 percent, 34 and 10). But he went down with a broken ankle in November and ended up missing the rest of the season. He ultimately finished fifth in the Heisman balloting. Barrett split time at quarterback with Cardale Jones in 2015 and had his moments last year, but ended the season with just 112 YPG in the last three games. New offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson should have him back to at least that 2014 form, and the Buckeyes are well-equipped at backup QB with Joe Burrow and redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins.
