Ohio State game Saturday: Tulsa vs. Ohio State odds and prediction for NCAA Week 3 game

The Ohio State Buckeyes hope to put last week firmly in the rearview mirror, as they host the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in The Horseshoe on Saturday afternoon.

After losing a tough one to the Oregon Ducks, the Ohio State Buckeyes are looking to bounce back vs. the Tulsa Golden Hurricane when they come to Columbus on Saturday afternoon.

While Ohio State is still a top-10 team in the country, Oregon more than exposed their weaknesses on defense. So much so that head coach Ryan Day would not commit to defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs calling plays vs. the Golden Hurricane. Though Tulsa had a great year in the AAC last season, they are on the verge of starting out the 2021 campaign at an awful 0-3.

Here are the odds and a prediction for the game between the Buckeyes and the Golden Hurricane.

Ohio State vs Tulsa Odds Week 3

According to WynnBET, the Buckeyes will be laying a whopping 27 points at home to the visiting Golden Hurricane. The associated moneylines for this game are Ohio State -3000 and Tulsa +1300. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 59.5 points. Given how frustrating of a day it was in Columbus last Saturday, anything short of a Tulsa blowout is bad news for Ohio State.

Ohio State vs Tulsa Prediction Week 3

There are no excuses for the Buckeyes to lay an egg in this game. Even if they play poorly, they will still find a way to rock the Golden Hurricane harder than the Scorpions did on stage. I know that joke is lame, but so would be not covering the 27-point spread. C.J. Stroud has his best game in Ohio State uniform, as the Buckeyes roll to an easy Week 3 victory over Tulsa to douse the flames.

Prediction: Ohio State 44, Tulsa 13
