  • Top spot in the Big Ten’s East Division is at stake Saturday at Ohio Stadium as the surging Indiana Hoosiers tangle with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Indiana (4-0 SU, 4-0 ATS) has been one of the most pleasant betting surprises of the season so far but finds itself as a three-touchdown underdog against a Buckeyes team (3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) averaging 46.3 points per game.

    Sportsbook Odds Analysis

    The Buckeyes opened this marquee matchup at -19.5 and that line has expanded all the way to -21 in some spots (and -20.5 at most others). The total opened at 63.5, the highest of the year for the Hoosiers.

    Indiana News & Notes

    Any team that can roll through the Michigan double and outscore the Wolverines and Spartans by a combined 41 points deserves our attention – and the Hoosiers looked particularly impressive against Michigan State, holding the hosts to a measly 191 total yards and nine first downs. Indiana enters Saturday’s crucial contest with the No. 17 scoring defense in the nation (19.3 ppg).

    The offense took a slight step back in East Lansing, producing just 24 points after averaging 37 over the first three victories – and while there’s a lot to like about the Indiana offense, there is room for improvement as well. For starters, the Hoosiers have just 14 touchdowns on their 23 red-zone drives this season, while their 82.6 percent scoring rate ranks outside the top 70.

    Ohio State News & Notes

    The Buckeyes are coming off an unexpected bye week created by the cancellation of last week’s game against Maryland. That might be the only way to slow down an offense that is averaging an incredible 511.3 yards per game with 18 touchdowns through three games. Quarterback Justin Fields has been the catalyst, having been responsible for 13 of those scores.

    None of this is unexpected for the powerhouse Buckeyes, but their surprisingly lax defense might be cause for concern heading into Saturday’s encounter with Indiana. Ohio State has allowed a whopping 52 points in its past two games – its worst two-week defensive stretch in two years – and could be in tough against an Indiana side that has 16 offensive TDs in its first four games.

    Betting Pick: Indiana +21 (-110)

    We’re not about to predict a Hoosiers upset victory here, but they’ve played well enough to keep this one within three touchdowns, even with Ohio State looking dominant on offense.

    Shark Bites
    • Indiana is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 road games.
    • Ohio State is 21-0 SU in its last 21 home games.
    • Indiana has lost 21 straight games to Ohio State.
