    Betting On Ohio State Odds (NCAA)

    Columbus is home to the Ohio State University Buckeyes, one of the most historic and successful collegiate athletics programs in the country, routinely fielding top-ranked teams in the realm of football and basketball.

    Betting On Ohio State Buckeyes Football (NCAAF)

    The Buckeyes compete in the Big Ten Conference and play their home games at Ohio Stadium, the third-largest football stadium in the U.S. with a capacity of 104,944. Since their first season of collegiate football in 1890, the Buckeyes have won 38 conference titles and claim eight national championships.

    College football betting sites know the deal when it comes to producing preseason futures odds for the eventual National Champion. Online CFP sportsbooks regularly thrust the Ohio State Buckeyes' odds toward the top of the boards because they know it's only a matter of time before they win another championship.

    Betting On Ohio State Buckeyes Basketball (NCAAB)

    Although the Ohio State Buckeyes basketball program has won an NCAA Tournament Title (1960), it has been a bit since they've cut down the nets at the end of the season. The Buckeyes host opposing teams at the Value City Arena, with St. John Arena serving as a backup location.

    Ohio State is no stranger to appearances on March Madness betting sites - they qualify for the tournament quite often and most recently made the Final Four in 2012.

    Whether looking for action on the regular season or postseason Buckeyes game, our primo NCAAB sportsbook sites have got your hook up for game lines, point spreads, futures, and more.
