2018 Ohio State Buckeyes Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: The Ohio State Buckeyes were probably more deserving of a CFP berth last season than the one they got in 2016. The Buckeyes were kicking themselves all the way to the Cotton Bowl after a confounding mid-season loss to Iowa all but left them out of the playoff picture. But don’t feel bad for OSU as they reloaded for another attempt at reaching the CFP. Since Urban Meyer took over in 2012, the Buckeyes have won at least 11 games every season and will need to overcome the loss of several key players in 2018, including starting quarterback J.T. Barrett.

Buckeyes National Championship Odds: +531

Buckeyes Odds To Win Big Ten: +161

Buckeyes Regular Season Win Total: 10.5

The early season loss at Oklahoma was acceptable. The thrashing at Iowa wasn’t. And that humbling 55-24 loss cost the Buckeyes a chance at another trip to the CFP. The loss at Iowa didn’t faze the Buckeyes, though, as they finished with wins over Michigan State and Michigan, and knocked off Wisconsin to claim another Big Ten Championship. In a matchup worthy of being played in the Rose Bowl, OSU beat USC in the Cotton Bowl Classic for their fourth 12-win season under Meyer.

The Buckeyes will have to overcome the loss of seven NFL draft picks, but that’s nothing new for Meyer and his staff. What is a concern is finding a replacement for Barrett, one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in the Big Ten. A four-year starter, Barrett threw for over 3,000 yards last season with 35 touchdowns. He became the Big Ten’s all-time leader in scoring passes, ending his career with 104. One competitor for the job dropped out when Joe Burrow transferred, leaving Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell to battle it out. Haskins should get the nod based on his performance in last year’s Michigan game.

Haskins won’t have to throw the football much with J.K. Dobbins in the backfield. As a freshman last season, Dobbins compiled over 1,400 yards on the ground averaging 7.2 yards per carry. Led by Nick Bosa, who amassed 16.0, the Buckeyes led the nation in tackles for loss and will again be disruptive in the backfield with a strong front. OSU will fill the holes left by the departed players and if Haskins can run the offense, the Buckeyes are a strong contender to return to the CFP after a one year hiatus.

Ohio State is synonymous with success in college football. The Buckeyes have claimed eight National Championships, 35 Big Ten titles and have 10 undefeated seasons during their playing history. A good portion of that success began when the school appointed Woody Hayes as head coach in 1951.

Hayes won 205 games and five National Championships in his 28 years at the helm, turning the program into a conference powerhouse when it made the transition to the Big Ten in 1953. In their second season as Big Ten members, the Buckeyes went 10-0, capping off their national championship season with a Rose Bowl win over USC. They would play in the Granddaddy of Them All eight times under Hayes. Following a loss to Clemson in the 1978 Gator Bowl, Hayes was fired after taking a swing at an opposing player, ending one of the most successful coaching careers in college football.

The program continued to produce victories and bowl appearances afterwards. In the 39 seasons since Hayes was dismissed, the Buckeyes have played in 35 bowl games, winning a national championship in 2002 under Jim Tressel with a perfect 14-0 record. The Buckeyes failed to add an eighth national championship trophy to their mantle with back-to-back losses in the BCS Championship game in 2006 and 2007. Urban Meyer, hired in 2012, led OSU to the first College Football Playoff National Championship with a win over Oregon to end the 2014 season.
