Ohio State vsMichigan Prediction
In the highly anticipated matchup between Michigan and Ohio State, the Wolverines find themselves as heavy favorites with a staggering 97.0% win probability in our simulations. Led by quarterback J.J. McCarthy, who boasts an impressive average of 1795.0 passing yards and 11.1 touchdowns per simulation, Michigan's offense is firing on all cylinders. Additionally, running back Blake Corum is projected to contribute with 63.0 rushing yards, although the model does not give him a chance for a rushing touchdown.
However, Ohio State cannot be counted out entirely. In the remaining 3.0% of simulations where they emerge victorious, quarterback Kyle McCord becomes a key factor, averaging 3.52 touchdown passes versus 0.67 interceptions. On the ground, TreVeyon Henderson proves to be vital for the Buckeyes' success, recording an average of 103.0 rushing yards and 1.27 rushing touchdowns when Ohio State wins. It is clear that for the Buckeyes to pull off an upset, McCord and Henderson will need to have standout performances.
Michigan holds a steady 0.0% chance of forcing more turnovers than they commit, which does not seem to impact their overall success rate significantly. Moreover, a positive turnover margin does not appear to be a deciding factor in their victories either. With the current spread set at MICH -3.5 and an over/under line of 46.5 points, we can expect a tightly contested game that could go either way.
