Early Saturday, news broke that Oregon WR Darren Carrington will be suspended for the national title game due to failing a drug test.
“While the Jerry Rice’s of the world can have an effect, we generally don’t see much of a shift based on WR injuries. The Carrington suspension hasn’t moved the needle,” a spokesperson from Pinnacle Sports tells Covers.
Currently at Pinnacle, Ohio State +5.5 has 36.6 percent of the bets so far.
Earlier this past week news broke that due to the structure of the academic year, the Buckeyes were able to practice as much as they wanted leading into the title game. However, Oregon has only limited practice hours due to the same rules according to the NCAA.
Both Oregon and Ohio State are 13-1 against the spread this season.
