Indiana off to solid start
The Indiana Hoosiers improved to 4-1 on the season last week with a 24-17 win at Rutgers. The Hoosiers are 1-1 in Big Ten play, 1-4 against the spread and 3-2 with the under.
IU is has actually been pretty respectable on defense, allowing just 21.2 points and 321.8 yards per game. Their pass defense is holding opponents to 163.6 yards per game. Offensively, Indiana is putting up 28.2 points and 412.2 yards per game. Stevie Scott has been leading the offense with 464 rushing yards and four touchdowns while Peyton Ramsey has thrown for 1,039 yards and eight touchdowns. Ramsey has also run for 170 yards and two touchdowns.
Ohio State edges Penn State
Ohio State overcame a double-digit deficit on the road last week at Penn State, picking up a 27-26 victory. The Buckeyes are now 5-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Big Ten. OSU is 3-2 against the spread and 3-2 with the under.
The Buckeyes are putting up 49 points and 557 yards per game on offense this season. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins is off to a great start. He has thrown for 1,464 yards and 19 touchdowns with just two interceptions. J.K Dobbins and Mike Weber are a formidable tandem on the ground. They have combined for 730 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Parris Campbell is the leading receiver with 26 catches for 359 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Ohio State is giving up 18.8 points and 357 yards per game. Their pass defense is allowing just 202 yards per game.
College Football Betting Trends
The Hoosiers have hit the under in 10 of their last 14 road games and they have hit the under in six straight road games against a team with a winning home record.
The Buckeyes have hit the under in five of their last six following a win, but they have hit the over in nine of their last 13 conference games.
Ohio State and Indiana have hit the under in three of their last five meetings and I think it hits again this week because I don’t see Indiana putting up enough points to help out. Ohio State should have a big number after being held to just 27 points last week. The Buckeyes will have plenty of big plays against this Indiana defense that hasn’t faced anybody to Ohio State’s caliber. The IU offense should also struggle with Ohio State’s defensive speed and power up front.
College Football Prediction: Indiana/Ohio State Under 64.5
