The spread, point total
Indiana is a nine-point favorite (-110) with the game’s total at 63.5 points, according to DraftKings. On the moneyline, Indiana is -365.
Indiana is 3-0 all-time against Western Kentucky. The two schools last played during the 2015 season, when the Hoosiers defeated the Hilltoppers 38-35 amid a 4-0 start to the season in non-conference play, helping Indiana reach the Pinstripe Bowl.
In that 2015 matchup, Western Kentucky led 28-17 at halftime, before Indiana scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter, with Devine Redding’s touchdown run proving to be the game-winning score.
Indiana has only played in Bowling Green, Kentucky, once, when the Hoosiers won 38-21 in 2010.
Indiana looks to rebound
During Tom Allen’s tenure, Indiana is 13-10 in games immediately following a loss. That’s encouraging for the Hoosiers, which play their second road game and final non-conference game of the season before Big Ten play resumes.
A win would bring Indiana’s record back to .500, while a loss would drop the team, which started the season ranked No. 17 in the AP poll, to 1-3 with its next three games coming against ranked opponents.
