Rutgers had some respectable results back during the nonconference that made many hopeful the Scarlet Knights could be adequate in the Big Ten, but that hasn’t been the case thus far as Rutgers stands 11-7 overall and 0-5 in the conference. The Scarlet Knights have been a work in progress on the offensive side of the ball and as a result Rutgers has slowed down their pace of play ranking 37th in the nation in total defense compared to 276th in scoring average. In their last outing Rutgers came up short at home losing to Northwestern by a final of 60-69. Rutgers is riding a 6 game losing streak overall and the Scarlet Knights are led by Nigel Johnson who’s averaging 11.9 points per game.

Indiana hasn’t gotten off to the kind of start they were hoping for in the Big Ten, but the Hoosiers remain a threat standing 11-6 overall and 1-3 in conference. Indiana has been arguably the best offensive team in the Big Ten ranking 17th in the nation in scoring average as well as 126th in total defense. Indiana has proven themselves against the big boys this season beating teams like Kansas and North Carolina. In a tough battle the other day Indiana came up just short on the road against Maryland losing to the Terps by a final of 72-75. In their last home game Indiana impressed beating Illinois by a final of 96-80. This deadly offensive attack has been led by veteran guard James Blackmon Jr. who’s playing with confidence averaging 17.6 points per game.

Rutgers has had their hands full in conference play and things don’t get any easier today on the road against a higher performance offensive attack. Indiana should be hungry coming off of a tough defeat and the Hoosiers know they can’t afford to lose to a team like the Scarlet Knights. Behind their elite home court advantage we like Indiana to come through today as they win and cover the spread.

    Easy $ $ Indiana and the OVER. Indiana is at home and needing a big game to get back their swagger. Poor Rutgers will be like a deer in the headlights

  4. Author: jimmyg3535  4196 Rep Points  

    I'd lean to Indiana, they seem to beat up on the lesser opponents

  5. Author: julole  1657 Rep Points   POTD: Seattle Seahawks on the win & cover

    just too many points for me not to grab -- Rutgers on the road will face a tough Indiana team but 16 points to a Rutgers team that is 11-7 and yes 0-5 in Conference play is too many -- on the other side is Indiana at 11-6 and 1-3 in Conference play == not out of the gate strong either -- give me the points here and a cover for the Scarlet Knights
