Minnesota is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The over is 4-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 road games. Indiana is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 14-4 in Indiana’s last 18 games. The home team is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.
Both of these teams have started the season strong, but Minnesota is coming off of a blowout loss. Indiana played very well against Ohio State and should come in with plenty of momentum. Both teams play solid defense, so I am taking the points with Minnesota. I think it will be a low scoring game and stay close throughout.
