Heading into a fifth consecutive home game in Columbus to start the season, Ohio State finds itself as a 39-point favorite less than a week out from its Week 5 meeting with Rutgers in the Buckeyes' first meeting with a Big Ten East opponent.

The projected point total sits at 56½, identical to the one Ohio State had this past weekend against Wisconsin. After failing to cover the spread or hit the over in the first two games of the season, the Buckeyes have managed to do both over the last two weeks in highly emphatic fashion.

Conversely, Rutgers also has a 2-2 record ATS and regarding over/under results heading into their fifth game of the season. The Scarlet Knights are coming off a 27-10 loss to Iowa this past weekend that saw the team fail to reach the end zone until the fourth quarter.

Ohio State will face off with Rutgers next Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on Big Ten Network.
