Good luck betting against Urban Meyer as a dog. Ohio State is 6-0 straight up and against the spread when getting points in the Meyer era, per our Bet Labs data.
And it’s not a one-stop fluke, either: Meyer has been fantastic as an underdog throughout his entire career, amassing a 20-6 ATS record at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. He even won 17 of those games outright.
