Indiana has dropped four of its last five games, including a 51-3 setback to the Wisconsin Badgers as 27-point road underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the total for the second time in 10 opportunities this season. The Hoosiers scored 28-or-more points in 10 straight games dating back to last season until that streak was halted in Week 12, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page. Offensively, the team is the only one in the FBS with four players with 100 receptions and 1,000 yards in their careers. Indiana is 0-5 SU and 2-3 ATS as road underdogs of 21.5 or more points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 4-1 in that situation.
The Hoosiers’ 52 touchdowns are a single-season school record—surpassing the previous mark of 50 in 1988 and 2007. Indiana is led on the offensive end by quarterback Nate Sudfeld, who leads the Big Ten Conference in passing touchdowns. He leads a unit that’s averaging 5.8 plays in 1:40 while covering 60.1 yards on its 60 scoring drives during the 2013 campaign—with 51 of those scores being touchdowns.
Ohio State enters the game with the nation’s longest winning streak at 22 games, with a win Saturday setting a program record. The Buckeyes have won 17 in a row over the Hoosiers, which can’t be ignored when making your college football predictions in Week 13, especially as they sit in the No. 3 spot in the latest BCS rankings. Defensively, the team ranks fifth in the country in allowing 92.6 yards per game, while being one of three schools to not allow a 100-yard rusher in 2013. Ohio State is 19-2 SU and 10-10-1 ATS at home since 2011, with the OVER going 11-10 in those 12 opportunities.
The Buckeyes lead the Big Ten and rank fourth in the country in averaging 49.4 points per game, with quarterback Braxton Miller being only the third player in school history to record 7,000-plus total yards in a career. Ohio State will likely pick up a victory in this spot due to head coach Urban Meyer’s 32-3 SU record in November over the course of his career.
Sports bettors will likely back the Buckeyes due to the Hoosiers being 5-9 ATS on the road in their last 14 opportunities.
