Why Bet on No. 4 Indiana versus No. 5 Miami?
After the Indiana Hoosiers fell to Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament, many believed Indiana might be an overrated bunch. But in hindsight, the loss made sense.
Penn State didn’t win the Big Ten Tournament but the Nittany Lions did play their way into the tournament final. The Lions also upset a very good Texas A&M squad in the first round of he NCAA Tournament.
The Hoosiers beat Kent State 71-60 to win and cover in their first March Madness Tournament game. Indiana will send the best player in this matchup, Trayce Jackson-Davis, to the floor.

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Miami Hurricanes Betting Odds and Prediction
The spread implies a close game, and it will be, but at the end of the day, Miami is the pick. The Hurricanes may not boast the best player in this tournament, but Miami is the better overall team.
Not only do the Canes have a victory over Duke, but Miami swept North Carolina this season. Miami also beat Virginia, North Carolina State, and Providence.
All three of those teams attracted bids to the NCAA Tournament. Miami is used to dealing with tough bigs like Trayce Jackson-Davis. Indiana isn’t used to dealing with excellent point guards like Isaiah Wong. The Canes prevail.
