2.5-point favorites.

The Buckeyes will be the betting favorite in Sunday's showdown.

Ohio State hosts No. 3 Michigan on Sunday in what will be the Buckeyes' biggest game of the season so far, and just a few days ahead of tip-off, Ohio State is the betting favorite.

The Buckeyes open as a 2.5-point home favorite over the Wolverines with the game total set at 136.5. The moneyline price for the Buckeyes to win last night is set at -148, meaning it would take a $148 wager to win $100.

Ohio State enters this game riding a seven-game winning streak. The Buckeyes are the nation's No. 4 team with an 18-4 record and are battling for a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan, meanwhile, enters the game ranked No. 3 in the country with just one loss this season. However, the Wolverines have played just 16 games this season and have played just twice since Jan. 22 after a university-wide halt of athletics due to COVID-19.

Sunday's rivalry showdown will top off at 1 p.m. from the Schottenstein Center.
