Dave's College Basketball Picks, Jan. 28: Indiana at Northwestern

Indiana (5-13, 0-6) at Northwestern (10-7, 2-5)


Line: Northwestern -12.5


Losers of nine in a row, the Hoosiers almost got a victory at home against Minnesota, losing by a score of 67-63. In front of the “White out” crowd at Assembly Hall, Indiana came out and made its first five three-point shots for an early lead. Neither team had a lead of more than eight points, but Indiana just didn’t have enough firepower to hold on.


Northwestern’s Kevin Coble was named the Big Ten Co-Player of the Week after averaging 26 points, 5.5 boards, three assists, and three steals in the Wildcats' two games. Northwestern lost their last game at Michigan 68-59 in a game where the Wildcats were only able to force nine Wolverine turnovers with their normally effective press.






Indiana is 6-9 ATS, including 1-7 on the road.

Indiana is 2-8 ATS against Northwestern in their last 10 matchups.

Northwestern is 8-6 ATS, including 5-2 at home.


Indiana is showing improvement. It just hasn’t translated into a conference win yet. A team returning just 19 points from the prior year is going to take some time to develop. I don’t think we will see a Hoosier victory here, but I’ll take the points as I think Indiana is gaining confidence.


Dave's Pick: Indiana +12.5
