MICHIGAN +4.5 (-110) is the pick in this game with how competitive it has been recently. The Wolverines have lost by 5 points or fewer in each of their last 3 losses.
Michigan is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 games overall, while Indiana is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games overall.
OVER 144.5 (-105) is the lean in this Big Ten matchup with both teams averaging 70-plus possessions per game. Indiana also converts 49.1% of its shots from the field (12th in the nation) and 37.8% of its 3-point attempts (25th in the nation), which should help the Over hit.
The Wolverines are 3-1 to the Over in their last 4 games overall, and the Hoosiers have gone Over in 4 of their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
