Authored by NCAA Football Against The Spread Expert Analyst Charlie McDougall and produced by Charliessports.com for their 2014 Football game on Saturday November 22, 2014 at 12:00 pm EST on the Big Ten Television Network.
The (3-7) Indiana Hoosiers of the Big Ten East division will travel from the middle of the Hoosier State to the Capital City of Ohio to take on the (9-1) and seventh-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes also of the Big Ten East division in 2014 Football action. The game will be played at the Horseshoe, know as Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. This Sports handicapper thought the Indiana Hoosiers was going to make it to a bowl this season, but an injury to their starting quarterback derailed those hopes. The Ohio State Buckeyes are right in the thick of thing nationally and could be in the final four of the new playoff system, but they need help. The Opening Betting Line has Indiana as a 35-point road underdog Against The Spread, and the total is posted at 66 points for Saturday’s game.
The 2014 Indiana Hoosiers are again pulling up the rear in the Big Ten East, Indiana returned seven starters on offense from a team that could score last season, but quarterback Nate Sudfeld went down early in 2014 and so went the Hoosiers bowl aspirations. The Hoosiers has lost their last ten in a row to Ohio State but were 3-0 Against The Spread their last three. Indiana is 2-7-1 Against The Spread, going over the total five times and staying under five. Filling in for Sudfeld will be Freshman quarterback Zander Diamont for their 2014 Winning NCAA Football Expert Betting Picks game at Ohio State. Indiana has a signature win this season over Missouri on the road, but that was early in the season, the Hoosiers are a double digit dog but they have one of the best running backs no one has heard of in Tevin Coleman.
2014 Ohio State Buckeyes are in control of their destiny as far as the Big Ten East race goes, they won at Michigan State a couple of weeks ago and have Indiana and arch rivals Michigan in the shoe, then it’s on to the Big Ten Championship game. The under is 4-1 the last five times the teams have played in Columbus and the Buckeyes have covered their last four vs. The Number at the shoe. Ohio State is 6-2 Against The Spread since their only loss vs. Virginia Tech, going over the total all but once in the six. Ohio State will be led on offense by redshirt quarterback J.T. Barrett, who is a native of the Lone Star State for their game vs. Indiana. Ohio State should win this one rather easily, but they can’t get caught looking ahead with their showdown vs. The team from the bordering state to the north, talking about the Michigan Wolverines.
Free Pick: Texas Indiana+35.
