The No. 17 Ohio State Buckeyes were on upset alert right out the gate in their season opener earlier this week. They’ll look for a better performance when welcoming the Niagara Purple Eagles to Value City Arena.

Zed Key proved to be the hero for Ohio State (1-0) as he successfully put in a game-winning layup at the buzzer to lift the Buckeyes to a 67-66 win over Akron. He finished the game with 14 points and five rebounds while E.J. Liddell had a 25-point, 11-rebound double-double performance.

Niagara (0-1) came out on the losing end of its season opener, a 63-60 setback to Xavier. Marcus Hammond went off for 25 points and six rebounds in the loss.

The Pick

Niagara +19.5

Ohio State will come out focused in this one and not flirt with danger like it did against Akron on Tuesday. However, 19.5 is a bit steep and I’ll need to see more from the Buckeyes before I start laying it with them as overwhelming favorites.
