Ohio State Buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeyes won 21 games last season and finished with a winning record in the Big Ten but they still missed out on the NCAA Tournament. It was the first time the Buckeyes missed the big dance since 2008.

Ohio State should be improved in 2016-2017 as virtually everyone from last year’s team is back. JaQuan Lyle returns after averaging 11.2 points and 4.2 assists as a freshman. The Buckeyes also have Jae’Sean Tate and Marc Loving returning and each should be even better this season. Loving averaged 14 points per game last season.

Not to be forgotten is Keita Bates-Diop who averaged 11.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game a year ago. Ohio State would like to get more out of big man Trevor Thompson who averaged 6.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season.

The Buckeyes also have super sixth man Kam Williams who was the best shooter on the team last season.

2016-2017 Ohio State Buckeyes Betting

The Buckeyes have some good newcomers who could see playing time this season including Andre Wesson, Derek Funderburk and Micah Potter.  They also added C.J. Jackson and Jimmy Jent. The Buckeyes were nothing special against the spread last season as they were just 17-16-1 ATS. They were far better at home last season against the number than on the road as they went 12-7-1 ATS at home but just 4-6 ATS on the road.
