Point Total: 53.5
PICK: Under

This one has a warning label attached to it.

If you think Rutgers is actually for real in any way, ignore this pick.

Yeah, the Scarlet Knight 38-27 win over Michigan State last week blew past 53.5 points, but is Indiana going to turn the ball over seven times like the Spartan O did?

No.

Is the Rutgers offense that put up 276 yards going to be around the mark again this week?

Probably.

There is a concern that the Indiana offense that was supposed to show up before the last 1:25 seconds of the Penn State game will make an appearance from the start. There’s a whole lot of firepower and pop, and there’s a chance it takes a big chunk out of the point total itself.

This is where Greg Schiano and the Rutgers defense has to kick in – expect it to be just aggressive enough to keep this from getting out of hand. Then hope the offense of last year that failed to score more than 16 points in nine of the last 11 games is more representative of what this team is.
