Round of 64 Betting Lines
#16 James Madison Dukes +21
#1 Indiana Hoosiers -21
The Dukes are going to be a relatively trendy choice in this game on Friday, knowing that they have played great ball over the course of the last five games. The team is 5-0 SU and ATS in those outings, including on Wednesday in the First Four when it took care of the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds. In that games, James Madison figured out how to slow down a very fast Long Island outfit, and that’s why many have the feeling that this could be a closer than expected game. However, we think that the step up in class is really going to catch James Madison in this one. The Dukes haven’t played against a team this good all season long, and the one team that they did play against a relatively comparable team was the first game of the season against UCLA, a team that beat them 100-70. Indiana early this year absolutely beat the snot out of virtually every team like this that came to the table. Winning by three touchdowns isn’t anywhere near out of the question. Lay the points with the Hoosiers with confidence.
