College football betting is a great exercise in learning about value.  “Name brand” teams such as Ohio State may command a lot of NCAA football wagering action from the general public but not much college football betting value.  This season points that out as Ohio State is 8-2 straight up but just 3-6 against the college football lines.

Ohio State did get the cash last week, however, in a 45-10 win at Northwestern, covering the college football betting lines as a 12.5-point chalk.  It was the Buckeyes’ third win in five games against the college football betting lines.  Ohio State has gone under the college football betting total six out of nine times this season.

Ohio State has been a disappointment on offense this season ranking 89th in the college football betting stats.  The Buckeyes rank a far more impressive 7th on defense.  Illinois is having a most disappointing NCAA football wagering season after last year’s Rose Bowl run.

Illinois is 5-5 straight up and 4-5 against the college football lines.  The Illini are 4-4-1 against the college football betting totals.  Last week Illinois hit rock bottom in losing at Detroit’s Ford Field to Western Michigan 17-23 as 7.5-point chalks on the college football betting boards.

With that loss the Illini face potential bowl elimination this college football betting season.  Illinois has failed to beat the college football betting lines in three of their last five games.  The Illini rank 15th on the national college football betting offensive stats charts while ranking 57th on defense.

Ohio State is a strong 14-4 against the college football betting lines in their last 18 road games.  The Buckeyes are also 25-10 against the college football betting lines in their last 35 Big Ten games.  Illinois is a most alarming 12-27 against the college football betting lines when following a straight up loss.
