The early lines are out for Ohio State’s next game against the Indiana Hoosiers, and if Vegas is right, another Buckeye blowout could be on the way.

Per OddsShark, Ohio State has opened as a 32.5-point favorite over the Indiana Hoosiers. The game will be played this Saturday, in Columbus.

The undefeated Buckeyes have blown out every opponent, including their last, demolishing Rutgers, 58-0. Indiana had a big Saturday of their own, upsetting Michigan State, 24-21, in overtime, pushing their record to 3-1 on the year.

That Ohio State is expected to beat Indiana shouldn’t be a surprise in and of itself. After all, the Buckeyes own a massive 71-12-5 historical advantage over the Hoosiers, and haven’t lost to Indiana since 1988.

However, Indiana has still put quite a scare in the Buckeyes over the last few seasons. Ohio State escaped with a 34-27 win last season in Bloomington, struggled at times in a 42-27 win in 2014, and won by only a field goal in a wild 52-49 shootout in 2012. Under Kevin Wilson, the Hoosiers may not always be good, but they’ve always been interesting.

Vegas seems to think the Buckeyes shouldn’t have too much trouble on Saturday. We’ll see who is right in a few days.
