Indiana is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 road games. The under is 5-1 in Indiana’s last 6 road games. Penn State is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games. The home team is 5-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Indiana has started the season playing very well, but is on the road in this game. Penn State has struggled against good opponents in recent games and I expect more of that here. Indiana is the better team and they only have to cover a small number. I like the Hoosiers here.
