The Buckeyes are 76-12-5 against the Hoosiers in 93 meetings.  They have won six of the last seven in the series.

After a win, Ohio State is 48-21 Straight Up for a win percentage of nearly 70%.  

Malaki Branham was rewarded for the extra work he put in while Ohio State's basketball program was on three-week pause because of a COVID-19 outbreak.

The freshman, who had scored in double figures just once in his first 10 games, had a season-high 35 points Sunday on an otherwise tough night offensively for the Buckeyes in their 87-79 overtime win over Nebraska.

"That boy is good," Buckeyes forward Zed Key said. "I just saw it in his eyes. He wanted to win, and he's a winner. Thirty-five, that's tough to do, especially in the Big Ten. We needed it. Some of us didn't have our legs back, just being off that amount of time."

Despite their 9-2 record Straight Up, the books have been faring well against Ohio State has the Buckeyes are just 5-6 Against The Spread.

Jalen Pickett scored 15 points and Myles Dread shot 4 of 5 — all from 3-point range — and finished with 12 points to help Penn State beat Indiana 61-58 on Sunday.

But the Hoosiers have been playing well and are profitable for sports bettors to date going 10-3 Straight Up and 8-5 Against The Spread.

Take Ohio State +3.5 here!
