At the onset of the new season, Ohio State is steamrolling right along. Namely, new head coach Ryan Day and new quarterback Justin Fields are lighting it up. Perhaps the one cloud in the sky is a potential drop in betting on college football value. The betting public is quickly gravitating towards the Scarlet and Gray. Indiana is never picked to do much in the Big Ten. For example, a six-win bowl season is a major success by their standards. That being said the Hoosiers are off to an impressive start. But Ohio State is a much tougher opponent.
