Indiana is 0-2 SUATS in its last two games, including a 56-17 blowout loss to the Michigan State Spartans as 15.5-point home underdogs on Oct. 18, while going OVER the betting total in three consecutive contests. The Hoosiers are led offensively by running back Tevin Coleman, which is important to consider when making your Week 10 college football betting picks, as he’s averaging 170.3 rushing yards per game. The junior is on pace to become just the sixth Big Ten Conference runner to gain over 2,000 yards in a single season. Indiana is 1-4 SUATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.
The Hoosiers are 9-53 SU all-time in this rivalry series, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, as they haven’t won in Ann Arbor since 1987. Indiana’s offensive line has paved the way for Coleman the entire season, as the unit ranks third nationally with 165 career starts among 11 different players. Senior Shane Wynn is one of the more important players to handicap in this affair, as he’s one of only eight active players with receiving, rushing, punt return and kick return touchdowns in his career.
Michigan was also handed a lopsided loss by Michigan State in its last game on the gridiron, as it was out-gained by 260 yards in a 35-11 defeat as 17-point road underdogs last week. The Wolverines are 11-1 SU all-time against the Hoosiers as their Homecoming opponent. Offensively, the team ranks third in the Big Ten and 22nd in the country in red zone offense, while it has come away with a touchdown in that situation 73.7 percent of the time. Michigan is 5-2 SU and 3-4 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.
The Wolverines have allowed just six rushing touchdowns during the 2014 campaign, with only two of those coming at Michigan Stadium. Michigan is also allowing opponents to average just 3.06 yards per rush—a number that trails only 11 teams in the nation.
Sports bettors will likely back the Wolverines due to the Hoosiers being 0-7 ATS after allowing 450 or more total yards in their previous affair.
