Your melee a DPS, you need the boosted defenses especially early game, and the utility experience boost is simply amazing, you'll also pick up a point in improved buff duration for that all important red buff that you'll be grabbing mid-late game.

Why picking defense rather than offense?

I think there are two solid choices for playing Olaf.

The bonuses you get from going down the Offensive tree are, quite honestly, really bad. The movespeed boost, EXP boost, and CDR reduction benefit Olaf much more than 3 damage. Another page that is quite good is

because you pick up the decent masteries from Offensive (Attack Speed and Armor Pen), pick up the extra armor from Defensive for laning, and still get the movement speed boost and buff duration from utility.
