Game preview Kent State vs Indiana

This matchup looks to have all of the markings of a potential upset. Kent State has played well against Houston a close loss and led late at Gonzaga before losing by seven points. Indiana will have the two best players on the floor in Jalen Hood-Schifino and Trayce Jackson Davis. Having those two guys makes the Hoosiers a major danger for whoever they play, the key is Schifino who has been inconsistent this season. If Schifino players well the Hoosiers will probably win, if he doesn’t……

These teams have no prior games from this season.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Hoosiers -4

The two best players on the floor and if Davis and Schifino play well the Hoosiers win by ten and cover easily. I think that TJD puts the Hoosiers on his back in this tournament. This will be a close game until the last minute or two. Hoosiers 80Β  Golden Flashes 70.
