Betting Odds: Indiana Hoosiers -5.5 -- Over/Under: 42.5 Click Here for the Latest Odds

Rutgers will face Indiana from Bloomington on Saturday afternoon from Memorial Stadium. The Hoosiers have lost five straight games.

The Indiana Hoosiers are 0-6 in the Big 10, the Hoosiers are hoping to grab a win here as they face Purdue on the road and Minnesota at home to end the season. Last week, they fell at Michigan 29-7.

Michael Penix was expected to lead this team this season, but injuries have derailed much of his season. Backup, Donaven McCulley threw for just 88 yards with no TDs and no INTs. It was his 2nd start in a row as 2nd string QB, Jack Tuttle, was also out. It is unclear who will start in this one.

Rutgers is coming off a blowout loss to Wisconsin at home 52-3. The Scarlet Knights were down 7-3, before the Badgers ran off 49 straight points. Rutgers' quarterbacks threw three interceptions. The offense amassed just 207 yards, turned the ball over four times and had the ball for just 22:37. 

The Scarlet Knights opened the season at 3-0, which included a solid win over Syracuse. They've lost five of the last and their only conference win came at Illinois (20-14) two weeks ago. Before they can compete with big boys in the Big 10, they need steadier play at quarterback. Noah Vedral is completing 61% of his passes for 1,493 yards with seven TDs and five picks. He's questionable this week with an undisclosed injury. If Vedral can't go, Cole Snyder would probably be the starter. Snyder is 18-for-28 for 130 yards and a touchdown with 42 yards rushing.

Defensively they have been decent, allowing 164 rushing yards (83rd) after a terrible game against Wisconsin and 222.6 passing yards (53rd) along with 24.9 points per game.

The Scarlet Knights are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. They are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a road underdog. The Scarlet Knights are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games.

Last season, the Scarlet Knights were demolished by the Hoosiers, 37-21. I think Rutgers gets revenge as they try to keep it close.
