The Ohio State Buckeyes lost to the Michigan Wolverines for the second time in as many years for the first time in over 20 years last season.
Buckeye head coach Ryan Day got his team ready to play against the Georgia Bulldogs in the Peach Bowl, but the Buckeyes suffered a come-from-ahead loss in that game as well.
Day currently sits at 1-2 against Michigan as a head coach, which is a dangerous place to be for any Buckeye frontman. Entering his fourth season next year, fans in Columbus are already apprehensive about the team’s chances next season in Ann Arbor.
Fanduel, one of the leading companies in Ohio after the state legalized sports gambling last year, set its opening line for what Michigan and Ohio State fans simply call “The Game,” at Michigan (-1) for the contest set for Ann Arbor, Michigan on Nov. 25th.
For the uninitiated, that means that for Michigan bettors to win their wager, the Wolverines must defeat Buckeyes by two points or more. A one-point win would result in what’s known as a “push” with the sportsbook refunding the bet. Any Buckeye victory would be a loss for the house.
Only time will tell how Day will perform.
