Indiana vs. Wisconsin College Basketball Line

The Indiana vs. Wisconsin College Basketball line had the Badgers as a -13.5 favorite against the Hoosiers Thursday night with the total coming in at 128.   All odds courtesy of Sportsbook.com.

Wisconsin looks to continue its home dominance of Indiana when it hosts the Hoosiers on Thursday night at the Kohl Center. The Badgers have won nine straight against IU at home, and the Hoosiers have averaged just 53.6 PPG and shot 39.7% from the field during their winless streak in Madison.

Indiana defeated Michigan, 80-61 on Saturday to snap a six-game losing streak. The Hoosiers are led by Christian Watford (16.4 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 40.0% three-pointers), who had 17 points and 10 boards against the Wolverines for his third double-double of the season. Verdell Jones III (12.8 PPG) scored 24 points on 9-of-10 shooting, as Indiana hit a season-high 67.4% FG for the game. Jordan Hulls (10.0 PPG, 51.5% three-pointers) chipped in with 13 points and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the field, including 3-for-3 from long range. The Hoosiers will be without Maurice Creek (8.3 PPG) indefinitely after the guard suffered a stress fracture in his right kneecap late in the game versus Michigan. He started 13 of 18 contests this season.

Wisconsin is coming off a 76-66 victory over Illinois on Saturday, which is its 13th consecutive triumph at home. The Badgers hit just 39.1% from the field, but limited the Illini to a season-low 30.2% FG. They are led by Jon Leuer (19.2 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 46.3% 3-pt FG) who had 26 against Illinois and has scored in double-figures in every game this season. Jordan Taylor averages 17.0 PPG to go along with 4.6 APG and 4.2 RPG, while shooting 38.3% from long range. He had 22 points versus the Illini, despite hitting only 3-of-10 field goals. He did convert 16-of-18 from the free-throw line. In three Big Ten home games, all of which it has won, Wisconsin held Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois to a combined 58.7 PPG on 36.1% shooting.

Indiana has dropped 10 straight on the road, with its last win coming against Penn State on Jan. 21, 2010, 67-61. It has also lost 21 consecutive road games against Top 25 opponents since a 77-66 win at Iowa on Jan. 13, 2002. The Badgers won both meetings against the Hoosiers last season by an average of 30 points, as Taylor scored 11 points in an 83-55 rout in Madison and Leuer had 13 points, seven boards and four blocks in a 78-46 thrashing in Bloomington. IU's Jones has averaged 17.0 PPG on 11-of-22 shooting in two games at Wisconsin.
