How likely are nine wins for Ohio State football this fall?

How many games will Ohio State win this fall?

Bovada has set the over/under at nine (in the regular season).

This could shape up to be an interesting bet as the Buckeyes have to replace 16 starters but are expected to be overflowing with talented young players.

That wins total would be an easy hit if Ohio State was playing its schedule of the past three or four seasons, but this year things look more challenging regardless of how good the Buckeyes could be.

Adding Oklahoma and Wisconsin change things dramatically, as does an improving (if possibly overrated) Michigan team. Michigan State figures to be down, but it’s hard to count Mark Dantonio’s team out, especially as an underdog.
