Indiana at Michigan State: Three things to know

  1. Indiana enters this game on a three-game losing skid which started with a 78-71 home loss to these Spartans Feb. 20. Over the trio of losses, IU has been outshot, 48.0% to 39.4%, and out-rebounded by a margin of 4.7 per game. The skid includes one road game and the Hoosiers have lost two in a row away from Assembly Hall after having win three straight away games from Jan. 10-Feb. 10.
  2. Michigan State is coming off a 73-55 loss to Maryland Sunday. The Spartans shot just 33.3% from the floor in what was a disappointing setback after wins against Ohio State, Illinois, and Indiana.
  3. For the season, Michigan State is averaging 70.6 points per game while yielding 71.6 PPG. At home, the Spartans have scored 74.5 PPG while allowing 68.5. In those home games, MSU is 10-3 straight up but just 4-9 against the spread.

Indiana at Michigan State: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Indiana 70, Michigan State 66

Money line (ML)

Indiana's conversion rates on 3-pointers (34.7%) along with its high rate of free throws make this contest a near-pick 'em. Getting INDIANA at +125 MAKES FOR DECENT VALUE.

Against the spread (ATS)

IU has shown improvement in its offensive rebounding numbers in recent weeks and MSU's defensive rebounding has been headed the wrong way of late.

Michigan State's three-game win streak from Feb. 20-25 was constructed on a foundation of solid shooting and opponent misfires from 3-point range. Both don't figure as sustainable (and weren't in the step-back loss to Maryland).

The underdog has covered five straight in this series. MSU is 1-7 ATS in its last eight games as a home favorite.

TAKE THE HOOSIERS +2.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

NO PLAY on a well-made total here.
