With the Hoosiers hosting Little Rock on Wednesday, we preview the betting odds for Indiana basketball and if they are worth betting on against the Trojans.
Against Miami (OH) on Sunday, the Hoosiers pulled out a 30-point victory in Indianapolis. If you trusted my betting tips for that game, you would have gone 1-for-2, as Indiana covered the spread, but did not get to the over 148.5 points. So far this season, I’m 4-for-6 on betting tips and looking to go 6-for-8.

No. 11 Indiana basketball vs. Little Rock best bet: Indiana -31.5 & Under 150.5
My best bet for Indiana basketball hosting Little Rock on Wednesday evening would be parlaying the Hoosiers’ -31.5 and under 150.5 combined points between the two teams.
A $100 parlay bet on Indiana -27.5 and over 148.5 points would potentially bring home a profit of $291.37. That would be a huge profit for a Wednesday night of college hoops!
I would take the Hoosiers to cover the -31.5 spread because in their two home games this season against non-major conference teams, Indiana has won by an average margin of 43.5 points, with their last win coming by 52 points against Bethune-Cookman.
IU has won 21 straight games against teams from the Ohio Valley Conference and has won two of their past four matchups by 32 or more points.
The reason I would bet the under 150.5 is that in each of the games against non-major conference teams this season, Indiana basketball has not reached over 150 points combined in each of the three games.
My initial prediction for the matchup between the Hoosiers and Trojans had Indiana pulling out a tough home win, 85-70. I’m going to alter that prediction after the strong start to the season for Indiana. I would bet that Indiana basketball wins the game 91-55.
Hope you trust me with these betting tips. The Hoosiers are hopefully on their way to a 5-0 start to the 2022-23 season!
