Indiana is coming off a big win over North Carolina. The Hoosiers could very well have an emotional letdown in today’s game. IU has yet to cover in back-to-back games this season. Edwardsville doesn’t have the horses to compete with IU to win, but they have some good balance of scoring and should be able to try and exploit some favorable matchups and do enough to cover.
