The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,300 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. After going a sizzling 9-3 in Week 4, it enters Week 5 of the 2021 season on an 81-61 run on all top-rated college football picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows Penn State possesses a defense that makes it difficult for opponents to get on the scoreboard. The Nittany Lions allow an average of 15 points per game, which ranks them 12th in the nation. On the other side of the ball, Penn State is 18th in the country in passing (307.8 yards) thanks to senior quarterback Sean Clifford, who threw for a career-high 401 yards in last week's 38-17 win against Villanova.

The model also knows Indiana is capable offensively, as it has scored 24 or more points in three of its four games this season. The Hoosiers amassed 507 total yards in last week's 33-31 triumph at Western Kentucky as junior quarterback Michael Penix Jr. had 373 passing yards and ran for a touchdown. Indiana ended its six-game losing streak against Penn State in 2020, posting 36-35 overtime victory in its season opener.
