Bet on Indiana vs. Ohio State

Indiana has won four of its last five meetings with Ohio State, covering the spread in the four victories. Despite recent losses, Indiana has covered in three straight and six of its last seven. The Buckeyes have failed to cover in their last two, both at home. While the Buckeyes could bounce back, they may be in the midst of a midseason dive. Indiana should be able to be competitive and keep this game close, as they did against Purdue. The public betting is siding slight with the Buckeyes, but I will take the points.
