College Football Week 4 Odds, Picks & Prediction: Indiana vs. Cincinnati

Indiana Hoosiers at Cincinnati Bearcats -17, Total 56.5

Kickoff: Saturday, 3:30 ET

We faded the Hoosiers last week, and it worked, as Indiana needed overtime to beat Western Kentucky last week.

Now Indiana travels to Cincinnati for a rematch with the Bearcats. The Hoosiers have been significantly out-gained in two of their three games against Illinois and Western Kentucky. And IU was losing 10-0 to Idaho at halftime a couple of weeks ago.

The Connor Bazelak experiment hasn’t fared very well, as the Missouri transfer QB has completed just 56% of his passes for five touchdowns and two interceptions. Again, this is against Illinois, Idaho and Western Kentucky. And Bazelak’s struggles could continue against a Bearcats defense allowing 150 passing yards per game.

Offensively, the Bearcats also hold a considerable advantage. Quarterback Ben Bryant has done a good job replacing Desmond Ridder, throwing for 863 yards, seven touchdowns and two picks while completing 70% of his throws. The Bearcats rank 16th nationally in passing offense, while Indiana ranks 93rd against the pass.

This isn’t last year’s Cincinnati team. But it gave a strong Arkansas team everything it could handle on the road. The Bearcats should roll.

The pick: Cincinnati -17 (-110)
