Indiana vs. Michigan State Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Indiana vs. Michigan State 1/19/18

Can No. 9 Michigan State get back on track when the Spartans host Indiana tonight at 7PM ET in Big Ten action?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Michigan State is favored heavily at home, as the Spartans are getting odds of -14.5 points against Indiana. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 144 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan and will air live on FS1.

Michigan State is coming off an 82-72 loss at home to Michigan this past weekend for its second loss in three games. The Spartans are now 16-3 overall, 4-2 in the Big Ten and 11-8 against the spread. MSU is averaging 85.2 points per game on offense this season while allowing just 64 per game on defense. Miles Bridges is averaging 16.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per game to lead Michigan State while Nick Ward is adding 14.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Indiana has won three straight games, including a 66-46 win over Northwestern this past weekend. The Hoosiers are 11-7 overall, 4-2 in the Big Ten and 9-9 against the spread. The Hoosiers are averaging 74.2 points per game on offense while allowing 70.7 per contest. Juwan Morgan is leading Indiana with 15.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while Robert Johnson is adding 13.6 points per contest.

Bet on Indiana vs. Michigan State

Michigan State has won five of its last six meetings with Indiana, covering the spread in three of its last four encounters. However, MSU has really been struggling lately. Aside from losses to Ohio State and Michigan, the Spartans had to go to OT to beat Rutgers at home. Indiana struggled early in the year but now is on a bit of a hot streak. The Spartans have turned the ball over too much on offense and I can’t trust them to cover such a big spread tonight. The public betting is slightly with MSU, but I will take the Hoosiers to cover.
