The over/under total for the contest is listed at 139 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio and will air live on ESPN2.

Ohio State is coming off an 82-79 loss at home to Penn State, which was its first Big Ten loss of the season. The Buckeyes are 18-5 overall, 9-1 in the Big Ten and 11-10 against the spread. Ohio State is averaging 77.8 points per game on offense this season while allowing 66.6 per contest on defense. Keita Bates-Diop is leading Ohio State with 19.9 points and 8.6 rebounds per game while C.J. Jackson is adding 13 points and 4.4 assists per game.

Bet on Indiana vs. Ohio State

Indiana has won four of its last five meetings with Ohio State, covering the spread in the four victories. Despite recent losses, Indiana has covered in three straight and six of its last seven. The Buckeyes have failed to cover in their last two, both at home. While the Buckeyes could bounce back, they may be in the midst of a midseason dive. Indiana should be able to be competitive and keep this game close, as they did against Purdue. The public betting is siding slight with the Buckeyes, but I will take the points.
