  • Michigan is a 4-point road favorite against Ohio State on Saturday (12 p.m. ET, FOX).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how sharp action is already moving the line for the 2018 edition of "The Game.

In college football’s marquee Week 12 matchup, the Michigan Wolverines travel to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes (12 p.m. ET, FOX).

On Sept. 11, Ohio State was listed as a 9-point favorite in Westgate’s Game of the Year lines.

However, despite a 9-1 record, Ohio State has struggled in the past month while the Wolverines are rolling.

As a result, oddsmakers opened Michigan as a 3.5-point road favorite across the market against Ohio State, a 12.5-point swing from just over two months ago.

Fifty-six percent of tickets are backing the Wolverines, indicating that action is relatively split so far this week.

But according to The Action Network’s betting tools, early sharp action is already taking a side in this matchup.

Let’s take a look at how wiseguy money is shaping the Michigan-Ohio State betting line.
