The Hoosiers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Buckeyes are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Hoosiers last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Buckeyes last 5 home games. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Indiana Hoosiers have failed to cover four of their five road games, and they lose by an average of 10.4 points and shoot 38.8 percent from the field on the road. The Ohio State Buckeyes may be in full struggle mode at the moment, but they still win at home by an average of 20.8 points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field. The Ohio State Buckeyes are also 7-4 ATS at home this season. Due to Indiana not being anywhere close to the same team at home on the road, I'll lay the chalk with OSU at home.
