Ohio State-Michigan is the biggest matchup of this coming weekend in college football. The winner qualifies for the Big Ten title game and keeps its College Football Playoff hopes alive.

This storied rivalry has been one-sided recently, with Ohio State winning 13 of the last 14 games between the two. However, Michigan is favored in this meeting.

Even more noteworthy, Michigan is favored on the road. When the betting line first opened up, the Wolverines are 3.5-point favorites.

Now, that number is getting larger. The most recent update has Michigan favored by 4.5 points.

Most likely, this line will continue to go up as the week goes on. Figure the Wolverines will be about a touchdown-favorite at game time.

Both teams enter Saturday's showdown with 10-1 records. Michigan has won 10 in a row since losing its opening game at Notre Dame, and the Wolverines seem to have all the momentum going into this one.

Ohio State is still in position to win the Big Ten East and potentially make the CFP, but the Buckeyes have struggled defensively this season and just seem to be missing "something."

They will need to find it in order to win on Saturday.
