The No. 3 ranked Buckeyes started slow last week before pulling away late to top the Minnesota Golden Gophers 45-31. Ohio State was a 14-point favorite, so it was a wash for bettors.

Oregon is ranked No. 12 in the nation after they got past Fresno State 31-24 last week as a 19.5-point favorite. As a road underdog the Ducks have been a bad bet at 1-5 ATS in their last six and 2-7 ATS in their last nine.
