The Ohio State Buckeyes (17-12) look to keep their late-season surge going as they host the Michigan Wolverines (8-21) on Sunday. With interim head coach Jake Diebler at the helm, the Buckeyes have won three of four and have put themselves in a position to possibly get in the NCAA Tournament bubble mix if they can win out in the regular season and then make a deep run in the Big Ten Tournament. This season has been a massive letdown for the Wolverines, but they'll have a chance to play spoiler against their rivals in this one.

Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. ET at the Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The latest Michigan vs. Ohio State odds from SportsLine consensus list the Buckeyes as 11-point favorites, while the over/under for total points is 143.5.

For Ohio State vs. Michigan, the model projects the Wolverines to cover the spread as 11-point underdogs. The Wolverines limp into Sunday's contest having lost six straight and 11 of their last 12 overall. However, Michigan secured a 73-65 win over the Buckeyes on Jan. 15 behind a balanced offensive attack. 

Dug McDaniel, Terrance Williams II and Olivier Nkamhoua all scored 15 or more points in that matchup. Plus, the Buckeyes are 2-4 in their last six games against the Wolverines and they haven't won a game by double-digits since a 79-67 victory over Penn State on Jan. 20. Ohio State has also been held to 60 points or less in two of its last five games, a big reason why the Wolverines cover the spread well over 50% of the time. Stream the game here.
