Just a week after hosting the Leaders Division favorite in Wisconsin the Ohio St. Buckeyes have a much easier task ahead of them this week. The Indiana Hoosiers are the lone team left in the Big Ten that has not won a conference game, and Indiana has lost 17 of its last 18 Big Ten Conference games, winning only last season's finale at Purdue in overtime. As a result, SB Nation's official odds partner Oddsshark has the Hoosiers as a 27.5 point underdog to the Buckeyes on Saturday:

The Buckeyes sit at 5-3 (5-3 ATS) on the season; in comparison, the Hoosiers are currently 1-8 (4-5 ATS). Looking to wager on the totals? Ohio State is 3-5 OU, and Indiana is 6-3 OU.

Indiana's defense was nothing short of awful against Northwestern last week. The Hoosiers gave up over 400 yards to the Wildcats in the first half and Northwestern scored 59 points. Ohio State's running game of Braxton Miller and Dan Herron should have plenty of room against the nation's 117th ranked run defense.
