The points with the Hoosiers would be worth a look given how much success the underdog’s had over the years in this matchup. However, home dominance has been the trend in Big Ten conference play this season, and Indiana’s paly on the road has been has been a big part of that as the Hoosiers have lost four of their seven conference road games by double-digits this season. Minnesota stumbled against Iowa, but the Gophers have been pretty tough at home otherwise and I think the Gophers get back to business at home here as the Hoosiers continue to have issues on the road so I’ll lay the points with Minnesota in this one.
