The one game that Michigan and Ohio State fans have waited for all season is just a week away. "The Game" as it is affectionally called, will see Michigan travel to Ohio State for one final attempt to achieve bowl eligibility.

If Vegas had a say, the odds are not going to be too kind to the Wolverines on Saturday.

According to our partners at Oddsshark, Ohio State opens as 20-point favorites over Michigan. The Wolverines are reeling after a horrific 23-16 loss to Maryland whereas the Buckeyes went on to an emphatic 42-27 victory over Indiana.

With the victory over the Hoosiers, Ohio State clinches the Big Ten East division title and its second straight appearance in the Big Ten Championship game.

Meanwhile, Michigan is 5-6 heading into Columbus with a bowl bid, and head coach Brady Hoke's job status, in serious doubt.

The two teams are set to kickoff Saturday in its traditional noon time slot on ABC.
