According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Indiana is the heavy favorite in this game, as the Hoosiers are getting odds of -19.5 points at home against Minnesota. The over/under total for the game has yet to be set.  

Indiana (17-4, 7-1 Big Ten) had a 12-game winning streak snapped this week when it suffered an 82-79 loss at Wisconsin. Still, the Hoosiers are tied for first in the Big Ten with Iowa and now host Minnesota, which is just 6-15 overall and 0-9 in conference play. These two did meet a few weeks ago in Minnesota, with Indiana winning 70-63.

The Hoosiers are 11-10 against the spread this season, but they are 2-1 ATS when coming off a loss. Extending that back to 2011, the Hoosiers are 25-18 ATS following a loss, which shows the team responds well with Tom Crean as head coach. The Hoosiers have also been strong at home this season, covering in 9 of 12 games, including their last three.
