The Ohio State Buckeyes are 3-0 to open the College Football Picks season, and while a potential victory over the visiting Eastern Michigan Eagles will likely do little to get them more first place votes, it would still run their record to a perfect four wins. Already ranked number-two in the AP Polls, a perfect season would undoubtedly get the Buckeyes in to the national championship game ahead of Boise State and TCU, a betting challenge that continues this Saturday at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes welcome the Eastern Michigan Eagles, who have opened the year by dropping three straight games, including two of which they were outscored by double-digit points. Playing out of the MAC, the Eagles aren’t a threat to pull off an upset here, but there are several things that they can do to keep this online sports betting match up close.
NCAA Handicapping: What Eastern Michigan Will Have To Do To Win. The Eagles cannot stop anyone, as evidenced by their points against averaged of 37.0 per game. The fact that those points were scored by two teams that also play in the MAC is even more of a concern, and makes the massive college football betting spread for this game seem a lot more realistic.
NCAA Handicapping: What Ohio State Will Have To Do To Win. The Buckeyes should only need to show up to improve to 4-0, as it is hard to picture Eastern Michigan keeping this game competitive. 18 points is a lot for a College Football spread, but not for an Ohio State team that will be looking to make a statement to those voting in the national rankings. This will be the second straight week that the Buckeyes are playing a team that is only hoping to keep the score respectable, and if last weekend’s 43-7 College Football Predictions win over Ohio is any indication, quarterback Terrelle Pryor and the Ohio State offense have no intentions of slowing down. Pryor is arguably the most explosive threat in the game today. With 715 passing yards and six touchdowns, as well as an additional 165 yards and two scores on the ground, defensive coordinators will game plan against him and still get torn up.
NCAA Handicapping: Outlook & Pick. Considering that Ohio State has only four ranked opponents left on its schedule, including just one that currently ranks in the top-15, and only one before the final three weeks of the season, the Buckeyes cannot be comfortable with simply clinching victories. It will be up to Ohio State to convince the nation that they are the team most suited to play Alabama, and more results like last week’s 43-7 win over Ohio can be expected.
