Against The Spread Pick
A match-up that features a pair of Big Ten teams both looking for a much-needed victory as the Hoosiers and Buckeyes clash at Value City Arena in Columbus. Indiana has lost two very important games since their very dramatic home win against Michigan State. Ahead is yet another tough road-game, as the Buckeyes will look to win a second-straight. The Hoosiers have struggled against the spread this season, and have only covered in three of their last 11 games. Ohio State hasn’t liked the spread either. Indiana has lost four of its last five games against Ohio State. Both teams have been worth avoiding in recent games, but with this game being in Columbus, leaning the Buckeyes to cover 7.5 points is the right call.
Over Under Pick
Both the Hoosiers and Buckeyes have quite similar scoring averages on the season. Neither team has truly been efficient this season, and Indiana has only scored more than 70 points twice in their last 10 games. Ohio State has been held under 60 points on five occasions in their last 10 games. Even with a total of 134-points for this match-up, it still is a must-avoid play. Take the under.
