South Florida has been a good bet against Big Ten opponents, covering the point spread in five of its last seven games versus the conference. That said, the Bulls are 7-16-1 against the number in their last 24 non-conferenc e games and are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven road games as well. Finally, they have failed to cover in four of their last five games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400.
Indiana, meanwhile, has been a bad bet across the board as well. The Hoosiers are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games and 0-5 against the spread in their last five home games. They're also just 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus a team with a winning record and have failed to cover in four of their last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in six of Indiana's last eight games overall, is 5-1 in the Bulls' last six games played on Sunday, and has cashed in 16 of South Florida's last 21 road games. The over is also 14-3 in the Bulls' last 17 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 12-5 in its last 17 games following a win.
