Michigan giving IU 2.5
Despite being unranked, Michigan can inch closer to the top of the Big Ten tonight when it hosts No. 22 Indiana at 9PM ET on ESPN.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Michigan is favored at home in this game, as the Wolverines are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Hoosiers. The over/under total for the contest has yet to be set.
Indiana (18-4) is tied with Iowa for first in the Big Ten at 8-1, but Michigan (17-5) sits just a game back, which has been somewhat surprising. The Wolverines weren’t expected to be too strong this season and they have been dealing with injuries to their key players, mainly Caris LeVert. LeVert is dealing with a leg injury that has him questionable to play today.
Still, Michigan finds itself as a favorite today, which has typically led to good things. The Wolverines are 9-5 against the spread as a favorite this season and the home team has won nine of the last 10 in this series. Indiana is just 1-3 against the spread in its last four road games coming into tonight as well.
