Ohio State is a favorite again.

Ohio State will be a two-touchdown favorite to start the season.

When the Buckeyes open the season on the road against Minnesota in a little more than a month, they'll be favored by double digits as Ohio State opens as a 14-point road favorite against the Gophers in the Sept. 2 season opener, according to BetOnline.

This is now the fifth game in which the Buckeyes are early double-digit favorites as Ohio State opened as at least 10-point favorites against Oregon, Indiana, Penn State and Michigan last week.

  • Ohio State -14 at Minnesota
  • Ohio State -10 vs. Oregon
  • Ohio State -11 at Indiana
  • Ohio State -10.5 vs. Penn State
  • Ohio State -11.5 at Michigan

Ohio State was favored to every game leading up to the College Football Playoff by at least 10 points and were favorites by three or more touchdowns in all of those games but the second-week matchup with Penn State.

Last season, the Buckeyes 4-4 against the spread, covering in three of their five regular season games.
