Indiana heating up

Indiana enters the Big Ten Tournament as the No. 9 seed, but the Hoosiers are riding a four-game win streak and a six-game cover streak coming into today. The Hoosiers are 17-14 on the year, 8-12 in Big Ten games, 1-0 on a neutral court, 14-16 against the spread and 17-13 with the under.

The Hoosiers are a respectable defensive team, as they are giving up just 67.4 points per game this season while holding opponents to 42.3 percent shooting. Offensively, Indiana is putting up 71.4 points per game while shooting 46 percent as team. Romeo Langford is leading the team with 16.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game this season while Juwan Morgan is adding 15.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per contest.

Ohio State in a slump

The Buckeyes are the 8 seed in this tournament and coming off three straight losses and failed covers. Ohio State is now 18-13 on the season, 8-12 in Big Ten games, 2-0 on a neutral floor, 12-19 against the spread and 15-15-1 with the over/under total.

Ohio State has been a good defensive team for most of the season, allowing just 65.5 points per game while holding opponents to 41.7 percent shooting. Offensively, the Buckeyes are putting up 69.3 points per game while shooting just 43.6 percent from the field. Kaleb Wesson has been leading the team this season with 14.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game while C.J. Jackson is adding 12.1 points per contest.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Indiana

The Hoosiers have covered the spread in four straight against a team with a winning record and in six straight against Big Ten opponents.

Ohio State

The Buckeyes are just 7-23 against the spread in their last 30 games on a neutral court and 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games.

Prediction:

Ohio State won the lone meeting with Indiana this season, on the road, 55-52. However, momentum is a big deal this time of year and Indiana has the momentum. The Hoosiers have wins over Wisconsin and Michigan State in recent weeks while covering against Purdue as well. Ohio State has lost three straight and wasn’t competitive at Northwestern or at Purdue. I think today will be a problem as well, as their offense has gone cold.

College Basketball Prediction: Indiana -1.5
