Rutgers vs. Indiana prediction: Our pick for the Scarlet Knights Tuesday

Indiana showed us just how dangerous it can be on Saturday when it blew out top-ranked Purdue at home in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score would suggest. What do the Hoosiers have planned as an encore?

After Saturday’s 79-74 win, Indiana boasts an impressive 12-1 record at home and 5-1 home record in Big Ten play, with its only loss coming by one point against Northwestern. While the Hoosiers were on a three-game losing streak early in January, they’ve won six of seven games overall with a perfect 4-0 record at home — giving teams 13 points per game at Assembly Hall.

Rutgers vs Indiana Prediction

6:30 p.m., Big Ten Network

Rutgers is an elite team in its own right, ranking higher than Indiana in net efficiency thanks to the nation’s best defense. Unfortunately for the Scarlet Knights, that defense hasn’t traveled well: Rutgers is just 2-5 in seven games away from home, posting seven of its eight worst showings by defensive performance in those contests.

Indiana is not the same team that lost to the Scarlet Knights by 15 points on Dec. 3. Star scorer Trace Jackson Davis said as much after Purdue’s win. Tuesday’s game marks a comeback for a hungry Hoosiers team that currently looks nearly unbeatable at home. Given Rutgers’ road woes, this is an easy game over the favored hosts.
