The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are a live dog here at home given their defensive effort and the crowd will be out in full force. However, we’re getting a top-10 team in the Indiana Hoosiers and small chalk. Indiana is easily the more talented team here and if those shots are falling it’s curtains for the Scarlet Knights. I’ll lay the bucket.
