Indiana would pay out $8000 for every $100 bet.

Factors to Consider Before Betting This Game

First for Hoosiers

No. 9 Indiana is set to play the first top-10 matchup in program history.

Indeed, this is the Hoosiers' best ranking since they were fourth in the 1967 poll.

This is also their first 4-0 Big Ten start in 33 years.

This was not expected to be one of the bigger games of the season, but it now will be.

Against All Odds

IU hasn’t won in Ohio Stadium since 1987.

Buckeyes Recent Head-to-Head Trend Edge

Think that's a big spread?  The Buckeyes have covered it versus Indiana over the last four seasons.

Sagarin's Big Dropoff From Top Three Rated

The Sagarin Ratings are used to determine lines on games.  Ohio State tops their ratings.  Indiana is rated 12th.  The dropoff is huge however as Ohio State is given a number of 103.20 with home field advantage at 1.73.  The next highest rated team, Alabama, is 101.80.  Clemson is at 98.79, then you have major dips from there.  The next six teams are rated from 92 to 87.2 (Indiana). This explains the significant spread, despite the Hoosiers on the verge of entering Sagarin's top 10.

Indiana Sportsbooks Should See Record Handle

With both the Fighting Irish and Hoosiers making noise this college football season, this is a great time for Indiana to finally offer in-state sports betting. 

Indiana legalized sports wagering in the state last year. 

It's not just college football.  The Colts are also excelling in the NFL.

And to think, Indiana is most known for its college basketball programs, so the best is yet to come perhaps.

Indiana does not offer many restrictions on its in-state sportsbooks.  They did not follow the lead of states the likes of New Jersey, Virginia and Oregon, none of which allow betting on their state schools or games that feature them.  It's a decision New Jersey has come to regret.  You do need to be 21 or older.  Offshore books accessible in the state allow those 18 and up.

Meanwhile, the Bucs are battling with New Orleans for supremacy in the NFC South, rebounding from a disastrous loss to the Saints with a payout last week over Carolina.
