Two teams from the Big Ten will be facing off when the Ohio State Buckeyes visit the Indiana Hoosiers.
Ohio State is coming off of a bye week and Indiana is coming off of a loss.
Ohio State opened up as 19 point favorites and that number has gone up to 21. The total has dropped a few points.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State has had a very good season so far. They are definitely one of the better teams in the nation.
The last game this team played was on October 9th when they killed Maryland by a score of 66-17. We will see how they look coming off of the bye week.
CJ Stroud has been very impressive so far this year. In the game against Maryland, he went 24/33 for 406 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Some key players on this offense are running back TreVeyon Henderson and receiver Chris Olave.
The defense has been pretty good for them so far. Granted, when they played a very good team in Oregon, they struggled, but they have done their job overall.
Indiana has not had a great season so far and things only will get harder when they have to go against the Buckeyes. They will be in for a big challenge.
The Hoosiers lost to Michigan State by a score of 20-15. A lot of people were definitely surprised that they kept it as close as they did.
In the game against the Spartans, Jack Tuttle was 28/52 for 188 yards and 2 interceptions. He will need to be much better if his team wants to win on Saturday.
The running game was never really able to get established last week. Someone who did have a big game was receiver Ty Fryfogle. He had 7 receptions for 65 yards.
The defense has been an issue so far this year, but it has been much better in their last two games. We will see if they can build off of what they did against Michigan State. Ohio State will present a much bigger challenge on that side of the ball, however.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
I think Ohio State will win this game comfortably, but I do feel that the Hoosiers can keep this thing closer than what some people think.
I am going with Indiana +21 here.
4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick:
21 is a very high number for Ohio State to be laying on the road here. I am not totally sold on them covering it.
Now look, the Buckeyes are clearly the much better team and they should take care of business. With that said, they have not been great at covering spreads against the Hoosiers.
I do not feel that Indiana will score a lot of points, but I do think they can score enough to keep it within that number. As far as the Buckeyes go, I think they will score their fair share of points, but not as many as they scored against Maryland a few weeks ago.
Give me the Hoosiers ATS in this one.
