PSU favored by 7 over Indiana in opening betting line

The Nittany Lions are favored by 7 points in their season opener at Indiana, according to BetOnline.ag.

Penn State is ranked in the top 10, while Indiana has some good experience back on offense and a defense that plays a tougher, more physical style than many people give them credit for.

The 7-point number seems about right, given that it’s a road opener and the Hoosiers generally have played PSU tough in recent years.

Penn State is 22-1 all-time against Indiana — with the lone loss coming on the road in 2013 — but as you can see in the picture above, the last two meetings have been one-score games, as well as four of the last nine.

Other bookmakers likely will list their opening point spreads for this game on Sunday.
