Indiana is one of the hottest teams in college basketball but could tonight be the night the Hoosiers get tripped up?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, Indiana is a 1.5-point road favorite versus Wisconsin at 7:00PM ET on ESPN. The Hoosiers are currently riding a 12-game winning streak and are now 17-3 overall and 11-9 against the spread. The Badgers, meanwhile, are 11-9 overall but just 8-12 against the number.

So why take Wisconsin? For starters, the underdog is 7-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams and the Badgers are an impressive 12-4 against the number in their last 16 games overall versus the Hoosiers. Wisconsin also goes for its 13th consecutive win at home over Indiana and 14th in the last 16 overall meetings. (The Hoosiers haven't won at the Kohl Center since 1998.)

Indiana did beat Wisconsin in Bloomington on January 5 but in that game the Badgers held the Hoosiers to their fewest points of the season in a 59-58 final. There's reason to believe that Wisconsin has improved since that loss, having beaten then-No. 4 Michigan State and getting excellent contributions from freshman Ethan Happ (average 12 points and a team-high 8.3 rebounds).

Bettors haven't fared well fading the Hoosiers lately but perhaps the home dog will provide some value tonight.
