OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (+7)
Not sure why the Buckeyes are getting so many points here today, but can’t back away from a hot team, especially playing against a Hoosiers squad off such a tight contests versus Wisconsin the last time out. Ohio State has now won 7 in a row and posted a 9-1 ML record in their L10, posting a 6-4 ATS mark in that span. They have jumped out to a perfect 3-0 ML and 2-1 ATS record through their first 3 games in Big Ten play, while the Hoosiers are fresh off a 1-point win over Wisconsin in their last game marking their 8th win in a row and making them an equal 9-1 ML and identical 6-4 ATS in their L10 also. Indiana is 10-2 ML and 6-6 ATS in their 12 games as the listed favorite this season, while the Buckeyes have won 2 straight as the underdog and are 3-1 ATS in their 4 games getting the points this season. That includes their win at Kentucky, 74-67, as a +10 point underdog, so a small wager on the money line might be worth the risk as well. The Hoosiers were are 1-1 ML (win was vs WIS) and 0-2 ATS when playing as a favorite of -7.5 to -8 points. Last seasons two meetings between the conference rivals resulted in a split, with the Hoosiers winning, 69-66, in Assembly Hall and the Buckeyes winning, 82-70, in Columbus. Ohio State is 3-3 ML in their L6 there, but woukd have covered today’s spread at a 5-1clip. The 3 Indiana wins on their home court since 2010 in this meeting have come by 8, 3 and 4 points respectively. Jump on the OHIO STATE BUCKEYES here today…..
