Kennesaw State vs Indiana Prediction

Kennesaw State's defense has been solid lately, allowing 65 or fewer points in four of the last five games. Having said that, it's going to need a bigger effort to stop Indiana. The Hoosiers currently have the No. 21 offense in the nation (81.0 PPG), which actually improves at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, where they average 88.6 PPG.

Speaking of Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, Indiana has won each of its last seven home games. That's not exactly promising for a Kennesaw State team that was blown out, 88-54, by San Diego State in its last road game. Making matters worse, the Owls are also 0-9 straight up in their last nine outings against Big Ten opponents.

With Indiana also boasting a plus-28.1 scoring margin at home and Kennesaw State sitting at minus-6.1 on the road, the Hoosiers it's clear shouldn't have much trouble winning tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Indiana: 83 | Kennesaw State: 70

When it comes to the best bet, I'm siding with the total going over 141.5 points. In addition to the total going over in 14 of Kennesaw State's last 19 games, it's also done so in four of Indiana's last five.

Although the Hoosiers' defense has been solid this year, it has also allowed an average of 81.7 points over the last three games, improving the possibility of more points being scored tonight.
