Indiana is 11-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 4-0 against the spread against the Mountain West, and 1-5 against the spread following a win. UNLV is 5-0 against the spread following a win, 6-0 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, and 1-3-1 against the spread against the Big Ten.
I don't like the way Indiana is playing and while they may just have more talent, this one is close enough to get the cover with UNLV.
