ESPN Predicts How Many Games Ohio State Will Win In 2017

Here's how many games Ohio State will win this year.

Ohio State is a heavy favorite to win the Big Ten this year. The Buckeyes are favored to win every game this season, even when they hit the road to Ann Arbor for the rivalry game with Michigan.

But how many games will Ohio State win this year?

ESPN picked the over/under on how many wins the Buckeyes will have this season:

Ohio State Buckeyes: 10 wins

Our pick: Over. The Buckeyes lost quite a bit in the secondary but are returning most of their players on the defensive line. The staff has also recruited a ton of defensive talent to help replace the losses. The offense, with new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson and quarterback J.T. Barrett, should be in good shape. The offense is also getting a boost from a few new playmakers, including running back J.K. Dobbins.

An 11-win season is a real possibility for the Buckeyes this year. Their stiffest tests come at home against Oklahoma and Penn State, and then on the road in the last week of the regular season against Michigan.
