Penn State vs Indiana Prediction: Spread

  • Free Prediction: Penn State -12.5

Indiana’s struggles offensively will be highlighted against the stout Penn State defense. With a key injury to receiver DJ Matthews not making anything easier for the Hoosiers.

Penn State feels as if they were screwed out of a win last year in Bloomington, and has been waiting to take it to Indiana. An electric atmosphere, in prime time, in Happy Valley, it’s hard to picture anything other than Penn State rolling on Saturday.

There might be some value on the Hoosiers if this line climbs to 14. The line opened at 10.5 and has been slowly climbing.

Penn State vs Indiana Prediction: Total

  • Free Prediction: Over 53.5

Despite the strength of the two defenses and an anemic Indiana offense, this game has been highlighted as a clear reverse-line movement.

With 54% of the tickets, and 78% percent of the money on the under, the total has climbed from 52 to 53.5.

Despite all of the football reasons to take the under, the line movement screams this game going over the total.

Indiana’s last two contests have gone over the total, suggesting that they may have found some offensive rhythm. Penn State went over for the first time all year against Villanova.
