Betting On Indiana Ohio State – Indiana Tries For A Season Sweep Of Ohio State

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:01:40 PM

The Big Ten basketball season has already been given fresh life by the re-emergence of the Indiana Hoosiers. They’ll try to knock off league favorite Ohio State this weekend.

Why Indiana Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who are beginning to sharpen their level of focus in the 2012 season are wondering just how high Indiana can climb. The Hoosiers are stacking big-time wins on top of each other, building a resume that has already assured Indiana of a place in the NCAA Tournament. Indiana has beaten Kentucky and Ohio State at home, collecting the two best wins of any team in the United States. Last week, IU then claimed another high-value scalp by edging the Michigan Wolverines, 73-71. Early on the Hoosiers were shooting the lights out with Christian Watford leading all scorers with 25 points and Cody Zeller right behind him with 18 points. The two men hit several particularly impressive crunch time shots in the late part of the second half. It looked pretty obvious why Watford and Zeller are the talk of the Big Ten Conference, as is Indiana. Those two young men are just part of the reason why coach Tom Crean has engineered such a basketball revolution in Bloomington, Indiana. Indiana is a balanced team and a team built on hustle. It can hit from distance yet also mix it up in the paint. The Hoosiers have accomplished perimeter defenders but enough interior muscle to be competitive on the boards.

Why Ohio State Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you don’t necessarily need to compare Indiana and Ohio State – not after the Hoosiers beat the Buckeyes, 74-70, earlier this season. You need to ask yourself, “Can Indiana possibly sweep Ohio State by knocking off the Buckeyes on the road in Columbus, Ohio?” That’s going to be a very tall task. Indiana has been a terrific home team this season, making Assembly Hall one of the most difficult places to play in all of college basketball. Kentucky, Ohio State, and Michigan have all tasted the bitter herbs of defeat in that building. However, Indiana hasn’t been nearly as strong away from home. The Hoosiers got clobbered by 15 points at Michigan State and have a lot of heavy lifting to do if they want to be seen as a good road club and – by extension – the kind of team that will grab a No. 2 or No. 3 seed in this March’s NCAA Tournament. Indiana will get back to the NCAA’s for the first time under Crean, but will the Hoosiers become the kind of team that can make a deep run in March? That’s what remains to be seen. Ohio State is a Final Four contender, and the Buckeyes are playing at home. Indiana will be hard-pressed to defeat OSU a second time in 2012.

Who Will Win

It’s not hard to put together: The odds say that Indiana got its one win over Ohio State this season. The Buckeyes should even things up this Sunday. Pure percentages are overwhelmingly in favor of Ohio State. It would be an A-grade shocker if the Hoosiers found a way to pull off another conquest of OSU.
