Indiana Hoosiers betting lines explained
A typical Hoosiers game line will look something like this at most Indiana online sportsbooks:
|Indiana Hoosiers||+2.5 (-110)||+155 O||165.5 (-110)|
|Michigan Wolverines||-2.5 (-110)||-175 U||165.5 (-110)|
Here’s a quick three-step guide to reading betting lines:
First is the point spread with the odds in brackets. Here, Michigan must win by three or more, but Indiana can win or lose by two or less. Both bets win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet.
The second is the moneyline. Bet on the Hoosiers and if they win, you win $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 bet. Bet on the Wolverines and if they win, you win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 bet.
The third is the totals line with the odds in brackets. Here, you bet that the total combined score will be over or under 165.5. You win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet if you’re right.
Hoosiers prop betting
There are no restrictions on live betting or props betting for college sports in Indiana like in some other states. That means you can bet on Hoosiers props, which often involves betting on whether the team or individual players can hit certain stat lines. It also means Indiana online and mobile sportsbooks offer live betting on college basketball games.
In-play betting in Indiana
Live betting, aka in-play betting, gives you the chance to bet on Hoosiers games that are already underway. You place bets at live odds that change with the action on the court. As you can imagine, live NCAA basketball betting happens fast. The odds can change in an instant, making it perfectly suited for betting with any mobile sports betting app that allows you to get down bets quickly before the odds change. In-play betting involves many of the same betting markets you see pregame, but quarter and half bets and even more in-game props are available.

Indiana Hoosiers FAQ
Indiana Hoosiers tickets can be purchased as low as $11. The average price of a ticket is $73.
The Hoosiers have won 22 Big Ten Conference Championships. The first was in 1926 and the latest in 2016.
The Hoosiers first started wearing candy-striped warm-ups in the 1971–72 season. There’s no particular reason why the team started wearing the stripes, but they have become an iconic part of the program.
The Hoosiers have never retired any jersey numbers. If they ever do, it’s a good bet that the legendary No. 11 Isiah Thomas, No. 40 Calbert Cheaney, and No. 44 Alan Henderson will be among the first.
IU does not have a mascot, just a lot of “Hoosiers” and “Hoosier Pride.” The IU fight song is “Indiana, Our Indiana.”
