Michigan State vs Indiana Betting Prediction

Indiana has had a very disappointing season in the Big Ten, but they have won three games in a row and will be at home for this game. The Hoosiers have knocked off Minnesota, Maryland, and Wisconsin in their last three games and they are looking to finish with a .500 conference record. Michigan State has lost three of their last four games and they have been very inconsistent, but they are coming off of a much needed win against Northwestern. Indiana’s defense has been a concern for most of the season, so we may see a lot of points here, but I like Indiana at home. Michigan State has not looked great recently and they have struggled on the road all season. Take Indiana here.
