NCAA FREE PICK: Take Indiana. According to latest college basketball trends, the home team is 16-5 against the spread in the last 21 meetings between these two teams while the favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The Spartans, meanwhile, are 1-6 against the number in their last seven trips to Indiana and 1-4 against the spread in their last five Sunday games. Michigan State has strung together six straight wins, including a big 49-47 victory over Wisconsin earlier this week. Their depth off the bench and balance on offense powers the Spartans, but they won't be able to keep up with a Hoosiers team that is averaging 83.7 points per game. That's the second-highest total in the country and Player of the Year candidate Cody Zeller is red-hot by averaging 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. The 9 points will tempt playing of bettors but the line is deceiving. MSU won't be able to hang offensively.
