Indiana vs Michigan: Prediction, Pick, Basketball Game Odds, Broadcast, Live Stream, Watch Online, TV Channel
Two Big Ten teams looking to capitalize on the momentum from victories earlier in the week will square off on Sunday when Indiana hosts Michigan on CBS at 3:30 a.m. ET. The Hoosiers (14-4, 5-3 Big Ten) have won four of their last five games and are looking to build on Thursday’s huge victory over No. 4 Purdue, while Michigan (8-7, 2 -3) hopes he finds something repeatable in an 83-64 win over Maryland on Tuesday.
It’s been a disappointing season for a Wolverines team that started the year ranked No. 6 in the AP Top 25. They are only 52nd in the NET rankings and had lost four of their last five before the victory over the Terrapins. The offense came alive for Michigan in this game, however, as they shot 58.3 percent from the floor behind a 10-of-14 performance from sophomore big man Hunter Dickinson.
Indiana won 68-65 over Purdue, despite an unusually quiet night from its own star big man Trayce Jackson-Davis. The victory, which caused a storm at Assembly Hall, was all about guard play as Xavier Johnson and Rob Phinisee combined for 38 points. If the Hoosiers can consistently get offensive contributions from those two, they could find themselves in contention for one of the top four spots in the league standings at the end of the season.

Indiana vs Michigan prediction, picks
It’s a trap for Indiana as they return to action after a thrilling win. Michigan enters two days of rest and could theoretically be better prepared. But Assembly Hall is set to jump again, and there’s a chance the Hoosiers have turned a corner. They are 12-0 at home this season and have won three of their four Big Ten home games by double digits. The bet here is that they make four out of five. Prediction: Indiana 79, Michigan 65
