J.T. Barrett had 389 total yards and accounted for four touchdowns in Ohio State’s 31-24 win over Minnesota in November 2014. It was the Buckeyes’ ninth straight win of a current 11-game winning streak against the Gophers. And it was the only win of the 11 that came by fewer than 14 points.

The college football betting public loves Ohio State to win a 12th straight game over Minnesota on Thursday night, and do so with another two-touchdown win. As of Thursday morning, 75 percent of the tickets and 80 percent of the handle were on Ohio State -14 at the BetMGM sportsbook. Sixty-six percent of the money line tickets were also on Ohio State (-700), along with 67 percent of the handle.

The game has the most disproportionate ticket and handle shares of the four games involving preseason AP top-25 teams on Thursday night. Here are the full betting insights for those college football odds:
