The Ohio Sate Buckeyes have never lost to Oregon across nine total meetings, and it certainly doesn't look like the oddsmakers believe that 2020 is going to the year that bucks this trend either.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, the odds and spreads around more than 100 of this fall's biggest matchups are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Ohio State vs Oregon Spread 2020

Sitting months away from the 10th all-time meeting between these two football programs, Ohio State has already opened as a 7.5-point favorite to beat Oregon on the road at Autzen Stadium in Week 2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While both programs are returning what should be competitive rosters, Ohio State is returning one of the mosy talented players in all of college football at QB in Justin Fields. It's also hard to blame the oddsmakers given Ohio State's perfect 9-0 all-time record against the Ducks.

There's still plenty of time for things to change between now and this 2020 rivalry kickoff, but the Buckeyes remain early favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes we may see, Oregon is currently set to host Ohio State at Autzen Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020.
