NCAA College Football Picks - Indiana University vs. Ohio State Week Six Predictions: In week six of the NCAA College Football picks season, Indiana University (3-1) travels to Columbus to clash with the #2 ranked Ohio State University (5-0) in a Big Ten conference game. Vegas odds have predicted this game as a mismatch with Ohio State installed as -23(-110) point college football picks favorite at home.
This college football picks series has been a mismatch over the years as IU has dropped 15 consecutive collegge football picks contests to the Buckeyes including a 33-14 loss at home last season.
Indiana comes into this NCAA picks match-up off the heels of a 42-35 loss to Michigan in which quarterback Ben Chappell threw for 480 yards. Chappell is the Hoosiers offense as he has accounted for 1,370 of the team’s 1,800 total yards. Indiana is 4th in the nation in passing and the team is averaging nearly 40 points per college football picks contest.
Trouble is the team is also ranked 71st in scoring defense this college football picks season and Ohio State can score, ranking 8th in the nation in scoring with 44.2 points per game. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor leads the team in passing and rushing and has generated 15 touchdowns. Pryor’s health, though, is in question at press time and, if he is limited, the OSU offense will be limited. The Buckeyes possess enough weapons even without Pryor and will most likely lean on their ground game with back Dan Herron.
In recent college football picks contests, Ohio State has lost games in the Big Ten in which they were heavily favored. Last season’s loss to Purdue, 26-18, in which they were -13 favorites, and a 2007 loss to Illinois, 28-21, when they were -15 favorites come quickly to mind as huge upsets.
This is not one of those college football picks contests. OSU wins but, behind Chappell, look for IU to cover the Vegas spreads set by college football odds makers.
