Hoosiers haven’t won in East Lansing since 2013

The Indiana Hoosiers lock horns with the Michigan State Spartans and hope to reverse a trend that has seen them go 1-17 SU in their last 18 trips to East Lansing. The Hoosiers are 11-7 SU this season but are 4-2 SU in conference play and riding a three-game winning streak. They opened as a heavy dog vs the Spartans, who have lost two of their last three games and have dropped to ninth in the national rankings.

  • The total has gone OVER in seven of Michigan State’s last nine games.
  • Michigan State is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games after a loss.
  • Indiana is 2-10 SU in its last 12 games on the road vs teams with winning records.

Just under two weeks ago, the Spartans were ranked first in the nation and looked unstoppable with the tandem of Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson. But after dropping a home loss to unranked Michigan and losing to Ohio State, Michigan State is now ranked outside of the top five for the first time since last April.

Turnovers were a huge issue for the Spartans vs Michigan and with such a young squad, it could be an Achilles heel going forward for the national title contender. With the line opening at -14.5, it could be a tough sell for bettors to expect a cover by the Spartans, who are 4-6 ATS when favored by 14 points or more this season.

The Hoosiers are tied with the Spartans in the Big Ten standings but suffered a huge loss in their most recent game vs Northwestern when starting center DeRay Davis tore his Achilles, sidelining him for the rest of the season. It may be a lot to ask of the Hoosiers to escape with a win as they’ve lost four of their last five road games and as noted do not have a great history at Michigan State.

The total opened at 142.5 and an OVER should be heavily considered by bettors in this tilt. The OVER has hit in nine of 13 home games for the Spartans and they average just over 85 points per game. The OVER has also hit in the last three games in this matchup.
