Indiana vs. Ohio State Prediction

I’m on Ohio State here. I just think this is another spot where home court reigns supreme in Big Ten play and that home court edge in that conference is not something I’m trying to deviate from right now. The Buckeyes are a much different team at home and Indiana’s been far too inconsistent for my liking to trust them in a true road environment. Give me Ohio State laying the points here.
