5* BIG 10 HARDWOOD HEAVY HITTER
Michigan vs. Indiana,
01/05/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 71 - 73
Point Spread: -7½/-105 Indiana
The Hoosiers stunned Ohio State 74-70 on Saturday as a 5-point underdog. Despite Indiana impressive wins at home, they also knocked off Kentucky, the public has quickly jumped on the Wolverines in this matchup. Indiana is a perfect 10-0 at home this season. While oddsmakers only put a line out on five of those games, Indiana covered all 5.
While it might seem like Indiana is overrated in this spot, I think that is exactly what oddsmakers want you to think. After upsetting Kentucky went into their next game as 9-point favorites against Notre Dame. They went on to win that game 69-58.
7.5-points might seem like a lot, but even if this game is close at the end, the Hoosiers are an excellent free throw shooting team.
Michigan is just 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games vs the Hoosiers. Indiana is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. BET THE HOOSIERS -7.5!
