Wednesday night Big Ten action will see the Indiana Hoosiers take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Both teams have started conference play pretty strong and will be looking to move up in the standings on Wednesday.
The Hoosiers probably deserve to be in the top 25 as they just beat Ohio State 66-54. Indiana has now won two in a row since getting blown out in Maryland. Note that both of their conference losses have come on the road. Both these losses were by 15+ and an average of 18 points.
Overall, the Hoosiers are averaging 76.2 points per game. This is pretty good, but on the road they average just 61.5. Now having to go up against a top defensive team, Indiana is likely going to struggle a ton.
Their leading scorer is Trayce Jackson-Davis, who is averaging 14.6 points per game. The Hooisers also have three other guys who average in double figures, so they are pretty balanced.
Defensively, the Hooisers are allowing 66.2 points per game. Once again, on the road is where they struggle, giving up an average of 79.5 points per game.
One thing the Hoosiers have going for them, is the ability to limit rebounds. They are ranked 17th in the country in this category and are allowing 27.5 rebounds per game to their opponent. Taking away second chance points for Rutgers is how the Hoosiers are going to win this game.
They cannot allow the crowd to be in the game the whole time because we know they have not dealt with pressure very well this season.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Scarlet Knights are actually a very good basketball team this year. that makes up for what was a horrible football season. Rutgers did lose their last game at Illinois by a score of 54-51. This snapped a six-game losing streak. The Scarlet Knights are also 3-2 in the conference and have not lost at home this year.
Offensively, Rutgers is still lacking some, only averaging 72.2 points per game. This may seem like a decent offense, but then you see that they scored only 51 against the Fighting Illini. The best thing they have going for them is their rebounding ability. They are a top 10 rebounding team in the country, averaging 41.6 boards per game.
Leading the way in scoring is Ron Harper Jr. He is averaging 12.2 points per game, but had just 9 against Illinois. Actually none of their starters had more than 10 in their previous game, which is concerning going forward.
Though lacking on the offensive end, defense for the Scarlet Knights is a huge reason why they are a tournament caliber team. They allow an average of 59.4 points per game, giving them the 14th best scoring defense in the country. Teams shoot just 36.7%, the 9th best in this category. In home games, they allow just 55.7 points per game, so that will be their key to success against the Hoosiers.

Free Indiana Hoosiers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights NCAAB Prediction:
The common theme this year for the Big Ten is the home team almost always wins. I like the Scarlet Knights to bounce back in front of their home fans and will take them to win and cover this spread.
