Get ready Buckeyes and Wolverines - an early betting line has already been set for the 2020 edition of Ohio State vs. Michigan.

One of the most classic rivalries in all of sports has been a lopsided series the past 16 years. The Buckeyes have not only won eight straight - they've taken down Michigan 15 out of the last 16 meetings.

Of course, the Wolverines are looking to finally get a win in 2020. But the early betting line suggests another big-time victory for the Buckeyes.

Fox Bet currently marks Ohio State as an 8.5-point favorite over Michigan for the 2020 rivalry game. Given the way the rivalry's played out the past few years, a one-score game - or close to it - is expected at this point. It looks like it could be another long year in Ann Arbor as the losing streak potentially continues.

The Buckeyes and Wolverines will go head-to-head in Columbus this upcoming season, giving the Buckeyes another major advantage. Ohio State also has superior roster talent given the past few years of recruiting for Ryan Day/Urban Meyer compared to Jim Harbaugh.

If Harbaugh loses this rivalry game again this year, there's a good chance he'll be on the hot seat.

Ohio State-Michigan takes place on Nov. 28th, 2020.
