It took overtime to decide the regular season battle between Iowa and Indiana. Now they collide in the conference tournament with one of the highest totals posted on Thursday's college basketball betting card.

   

Indiana Hoosiers vs Iowa Hawkeyes


After bouncing around a pick 'em overnight, this matchup now finds Indiana -1½ with 157 for the total.

Iowa (18-13 SU, 13-13-2 ATS) enters the tournament on about as good a closing conference run as anyone, the Hawkeyes winning their last four that included dubyas at Wisconsin and at Maryland. Fran McCaffrey's crew covered the odds in all four games.

No Big Ten team disappointed more than Indiana (17-14 SU, 13-15-1 ATS), and an early exit could mean sayonara for Tom Crean. The Hoosiers did pick up late victories vs. Northwestern and at Ohio State, but turnovers and fouls cost them in an overtime defeat at Iowa in the schools' only meeting, and I'm backing the Hawkeyes once again.
