Indiana vs Ohio State College Basketball Betting Preview
After a home upset over then-No. 4 Purdue pushed Indiana to 14-4, it looked like the Hoosiers were on the brink of a place in the AP polls. Since then, the Hoosiers have completely collapsed and have lost five of their last seven, including losses in their last four games. During their four-game skid, they have given up 74 or more points in three of those games. Indiana has also had trouble scoring as they have scored 61 points or less three of the four games as well. For a team that averages over 71 points per game on the season, this is incredibly problematic. With only five regular season games left to right the ship, their tournament hopes may be dashed if they don’t pull off an upset tonight.
After a tough loss to Rutgers on the road, it looked as if the Buckeyes got back on track after demolishing both Michigan and Minnesota. That was until they lost by 13 at home to unranked Iowa. The Buckeyes shot just 18% from long range and 66% from the charity stripe. As has been the case all season, E.J. Liddell was good enough, but the supporting cast was not. Against an Indiana team struggling mightily on defense as of late, the “other guys” need to step up for the Buckeyes again.

Indiana vs Ohio State Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Ohio State’s recent home loss to Iowa certainly raises some eyebrows, especially the manner in which they lost. It’s well known that Indiana has been able to hang with the best in the past, but was their early season success just a fluke?
With both teams making the spread a far from stable option, the total line should bail you out. Ohio State sports an offense that averages 74 points per game and plays an Indiana defense in poor form. Ohio State’s defense isn’t too special either as they allow almost 67 points per game. As long as one of these teams doesn’t struggle heavily to shoot, the over should hit.
