Northwestern vs. Indiana Pick

CBS College Basketball Predictions: Northwestern vs. Indiana 1/14/18

Can Indiana manage to hold off Northwestern when the two Big Ten foes meet up today at 4:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Indiana is the slight favorite in this game, as the Hoosiers are getting odds of -2.5 points against Northwestern. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 140.5 points. Today’s game takes place from Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana and will air live on CBS.

Northwestern snapped a two-game skid earlier this week with an 83-60 win over Minnesota at home. The Wildcats are 11-7 overall, 2-3 in the Big Ten and 6-9 against the spread. Northwestern is averaging 74.2 points per game this season while giving up 68.4 per contest. Scotti Lindsey is leading Northwestern with 14.7 points per game while Bryant McIntosh is adding 13.4 points and 6 assists per contest.

Indiana has won two straight following a 74-70 win at home over Penn State this week. The Hoosiers are now 10-7 overall, 3-2 in the Big Ten and 8-9 against the spread. IU has covered in four of its last five games coming into today’s contest. The Hoosiers are averaging 74.7 points per game this season while allowing 72.2 per contest. The Hoosiers recently lost De’Ron Davis for the season to an Achilles injury. He was averaging 9.6 points per game. Juwan Morgan is leading the team with 16 points and 7.5 rebounds per game while Robert Johnson is putting up 13.4 points per contest.

Bet on Northwestern vs. Indiana

The home team has won five straight meetings between these two, but the Wildcats have covered the spread in the last two meetings. Northwestern is actually 7-3 ATS in its last 10 against Indiana. Still, I have a hard time going with Northwestern right now. While coming off an impressive win over Minnesota at home, Northwestern is just 1-4 on the road. Indiana has won and covered in three straight at home and its two home Big Ten games. The public betting is behind Indiana today as well.
