College Basketball Betting Trends
The Shockers are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Wichita State is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 Tuesday games.
The Hoosiers are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Indiana is 4-1 ATS in its last five non-conference games.
Both teams have been playing well as of late, but I think I trust Wichita State more to want to be in this spot. The Shockers seem to want to prove something and beat a better Clemson team on the road than either of the teams Indiana has defeated at home. Look for the Shockers to continue their stellar play here as its defense has really shined over the last couple of months.
