Against The Spread Pick
The Indiana Hoosiers head out on the road for a clash with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Louis Brown Athletic Center. A lot is on the line as both teams look to stay in the heat of battle in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers have won two straight games, including a big home victory over Ohio State. Rutgers came up three points short in a tough game against Illinois. Indiana is just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games, while Rutgers has had a strong run with a 7-0 ATS in their last seven games. The Scarlet Knights have been able to win two of the last three head-to-head meetings. The rode has proven to be a tough place to win in the Big Ten, which makes taking Rutgers to cover 3.5 points is the right play.
Over Under Pick
Both teams have been scoring the basketball at a pretty strong rate. Indiana is averaging over 76 points per game, while Rutgers has been able to score 72 points per game. Two of the last three head-to-head meetings finished with over 126-point totals. The Hoosiers have scored 66 points in each of their last two games. Two of the Scarlet Knight’s last three games saw them score over 70 points. Both teams have had their last five games finish with under totals. Backing the under 130 total is the right move here.
