Which struggling Big Ten team will pick up a key win tonight when Wisconsin plays host to Indiana at 7PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wisconsin is favored at home, as the Badgers are getting odds of -5.5 points against Indiana. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 133.5 points. Today’s game takes place from the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin and will air live on ESPN.
Indiana has managed to win its last two games to get to 8-6 on the season. The Hoosiers are 1-1 in the Big Ten and 6-8 against the spread. Indiana is averaging 75.7 points per game on offense while allowing 72.5 per game. On the road, the Hoosiers are putting up just 61.7 points per game. Juwan Morgan is averaging 15.3 points and 7.2 rebounds per game to lead Indiana while Robert Johnson is adding 12.6 points per contest.
Wisconsin has put together a four-game win streak heading into tonight’s game to move to 8-7 on the season. The Badgers are also 1-1 in the Big Ten and 5-8-1 against the spread. Wisconsin is just 2-3-1 ATS in their last six games. The Badgers are putting up 70.2 points per game while allowing 65.4 per contest. Ethan Happ is leading the team with 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game while Brad Davison is adding 11.7 points per contest.
Wisconsin has won four straight meetings with Indiana, going 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings as well. While Indiana has won its last few games, the Hoosiers don’t have impressive wins this year and they are 0-3 on the road. Wisconsin had a real rough patch a few weeks ago, but the Badgers seem to be getting on track. I think they will be able to win comfortably at home. The public betting is siding slightly with Indiana, but I like the Badgers.
