Michigan vs. Indiana Prediction

The Wolverines come into this game currently seen as a bubble team. According to the projections this morning, Michigan is seen on the outside looking in as the overall 79th seed. The Wolverines struggled early in the year, but they have been rock solid in conference play. They sit as the third-best team in the Big Ten currently with a conference record of 8-5. It is important to note that this is the second-best conference in basketball.

Michigan has been led by big man Hunter Dickinson and future lottery pick Jett Howard. The Wolverines have made their money at home going 10-3 in their own building. Indiana, meanwhile, came into the season as the favorite to win the Big Ten. They are a ranked team that is currently seen as a four-seed, but they have been somewhat disappointing in conference play.

The Hoosiers are 8-5 in the conference, and they are fresh off two of their biggest wins of the year. They knocked off the number team in hoops last weekend when they defeated Purdue at home and they followed that up with a six-point win over Rutgers this week. Trace Jackson-Davis is the star of this team, and it will be fun to watch him and Dickinson go head-to-head tonight. 

I am going to back the Wolverines on the money line tonight. This is a must-win for Michigan, as I believe that this is a team that is being overlooked. They got off to a bad start, and they have some rough losses on their resume, but they have been very good at home in conference play.

We all know that this is an extremely difficult environment to play in, and I expect the crowd to make an impact tonight. The Hoosiers, meanwhile, are due for some regression coming off of two big-time wins. Indiana has struggled away from home this year, going just 3-5 on the road.
