Rose Bowl Betting Game Features Utah and Ohio State

2022 Rose Bowl Game Ohio State vs. Utah Betting Information

To be exact, when it comes to Big Ten Football, there is Ohio State and then everyone else.  The level of dominance that Ohio State has held over the rest of the Big Ten has been astounding.  But that College football betting dominance blew up in a blowout loss at Michigan.  It was the Buckeyes that were rendered helpless against the Wolverines.  In a series owned by Ohio State, the Maize and Blue knocked the snot out of the Scarlet and Gray.  It was no accident.  Thus, OSU coach Ryan Day has a lot of work to do.

2022 Rose Bowl Game CashBet Odds Analysis

Utah will get a lot of sportsbook support from fans and gamblers that appreciate their remarkable climb.  Meanwhile, Ohio State will draw action from others for their powerful name brand.

Ohio State Accepts Consolation Roses

Previously, Ohio State was routed at Michigan 42-27 as a 6.5-point dog.  The game went over the Betting on college football total of 63.5.  Ohio State stands at 10-2 straight up, 6-5-1 against the spread, and 7-5 over/under.  Overall, Ohio State ranks 1st for total offense and 1st for scoring offense.  Defensively, the Buckeyes rank 52nd overall and 25th for points allowed.

When Ryan Day took over as head coach from Urban Meyer, there were genuine worries.  Of great concern was Day’s ability to maintain Ohio State’s level of excellence.  Especially in the area of recruiting, where Meyer was particularly dominant.  Instead, Day has taken the program at least one step up.  Meyer set the standard not just for Ohio State but for the entire Big Ten.  Until he arrived, recruiting was a gentlemen’s affair.  Meyer brought SEC attitude to the process.  Yet Day has enhanced Ohio State’s ability to get the nation’s best players with a personable player relations approach.

At some point, Ryan Day may want to try his abilities in the NFL.  Correlate that Day is said to have a brilliant enough of an offensive mind to do so.  A job like Ohio State eats at the guts of any coach.  Accordingly, there is only so long a coach, no matter how great, can withstand the pressure and demands of the Buckeye job.  Now with the transfer portal and NIL, the stakes are even higher.  So far, Ryan Day has graded high.  But the question remains how long does he want to do this?

Utah Reaches Historic Program Pinnacle

Last time out, Utah routed Oregon 38-10 as 3-point favorites in the Pac 12 Championship Game.  Also, the matchup went under the bet on NCAAF total of 57.  Utah is 10-3 straight up, 6-7 against the spread, and 8-5 over/under.  In sum, Utah ranks 44th for total offense and 19th for scoring offense.  Defensively, the Utes rank 13th overall and 24th for points allowed.
