The Buckeyes are ranked third in the country and have one of the most exciting young players in the country in Jared Sullinger. The Buckeyes are not expected to get much of a challenge from Morehead State on Tuesday as college basketball odds makers at Sbg global.com have them heavily favored.
Buckeyes 3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS
The Buckeyes have won all three of their games this season and have covered the two that had lines. Sullinger was dominant in his first two games as Ohio State won against North Carolina A&T and Florida. He wasn’t as dominant against NC Greensboro but then again he wasn’t needed as the Buckeyes won by 40 points. He should get a bit of a test on Tuesday as he goes up against Morehead’s Kenneth Faried. Ohio State is more than just a one man team though and should have little trouble with the Eagles.
Morehead State 2-2 SU, 1-1 ATS
The Eagles are 2-2 this season and are not a great team but they do have Faried who is an NBA prospect. He declared for last year’s NBA Draft but didn’t hire an agent so he was able to come back to school. He had 20 points and a season-high 18 rebounds at Florida on Sunday and Morehead State lost by just six points. The Eagles actually out rebounded the Gators on the road. They should not be able to do that against Sullinger and Ohio State. The Eagles have just one player in Faried while the Buckeyes have a lot of other players in addition to Sullinger.
