NCAA Pick Minnesota vs. Ohio State

February 14, 2012

Free Pick

In a tough Big Ten matchup, the Buckeyes from Ohio State travel north to take on the Golden Gophers of Minnesota at the Williams Arena February 14. Ohio State is having a very successful season as they are first in the Big Ten, have an overall record of 21-4, and are ranked third in the country. The Golden Gophers have an overall record of 17-8 and are currently in seventh place in the conference.

Ohio State is led by Jared Sullinger, who after an early season injury has returned to average 17.4 points, and 9.3 rebounds per game. There are two other Buckeyes averaging in double figures to lead the offensive attack. Minnesota has three players scoring in double figures. However, the leader of that group, Trevor Mbakwe who averages 14 per game and is also leading the team with 9.1 rebounds per game is sidelined for the rest of the season with an ACL injury. Rodney Williams and Julian Welch are both averaging just over 10 points per game to make up for Mbakwe’s loss.

Ohio State is 12-9 ATS this season while Minnesota is 11-11 ATS. While playing on the road the Buckeyes are 3-4 ATS and Minnesota is 7-7 ATS while playing at home. Ohio State has a record of 18-5 SU in the last 23 games they have played away from home. Head to head Ohio State is 7-3 SU against Minnesota in the last ten games the two have played. Ohio State is also 6-4 ATS in those ten games. The total has been evenly split 5-5 OVER/UNDER in those ten games.

Ohio State lost a tough battle Saturday against conference rival Michigan State but prior to that had won four straight conference games. Minnesota is 2-3 SU in their last five, all conference games. Ohio State should bounce back from their latest defeat to Michigan State and should win SU and cover 8 point spread.
