The Pick

Indiana +40.5

The Ohio State offense struggled against one of the worst defenses in the Big 10 last week, Northwestern. The Buckeyes only put 21 points on the board. They had to deal with some horrendous weather, yes, but the forecast doesn't look great for Saturday either. Granted, the Hoosiers' defense is playing awful this season, but they should keep it within 41 points.
