Ohio State Buckeyes vs Indiana Hoosiers Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 8

by USA WagerOctober 21, 2021
  • Indiana will be held to less than 200 yards on offense
  • Ohio State will score more than 35 points
  • Indiana will turn the ball over three or more times

The Ohio State Buckeyes head into Bloomington this weekend to take on the Indiana Hoosiers. Ohio State sits at 5-1 this year and Indiana is just 2-4. Many thought that this would be a great matchup as both teams were ranked highly to begin the year, however, as we can see that will not be the case. Ohio State has been simply dominant on both sides of the football while Indiana has struggled on both sides of the field. Look for Ohio State to control this one early and run away with the game. Regardless, this game is always a battle.

Ohio State vs Indiana Prediction: Spread

I think Indiana will actually cover the spread this week because their pass defense is solid and they tend to play ranked teams close at home. They haven’t been blown out yet this year and their biggest loss was just 24-0 to Penn State. I think they can cover but they’ll need to score points to do it.

Ohio State vs Indiana Prediction: MoneyLine

I think Ohio State wins the game but I would not shy away from putting money on Indiana. They have been able to play well in tough games this year so I think that they might be able to sneak away with a win. It is a better play than Ohio State’s moneyline.

  • Free Prediction: Indiana +750

Ohio State vs Indiana Prediction: Total

I think that this game will hit the under as Ohio State’s defense should be able to hold the Hoosiers to limited yardage. Look for the Hoosiers to really struggle on that side of the field. I think Ohio State will score a bunch of points but don’t think it will lead to the over. If Indiana’s defense performs like it could, then this is going to be a close game. I think this is going to be like a 35-17 game.

  • Free Prediction: Under 60.5 points
