On Sunday, two of the nation’s best big men will do battle in a Big Ten showdown when Michigan goes to Indiana to face the Hoosiers.

Michigan Wolverines vs. Indiana Hoosiers (-4, 133.5)

(stats as of Saturday morning)

Trayce Jackson-Davis and Hunter Dickinson are both averaging at least 16.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game, with Jackson-Davis also chipping in 2.8 blocks per game for Indiana.

For what Indiana gets in blocks, they give back in turnovers with committing a turnover in 19.2 percent of their possessions, which is 220th in the country.

The Wolverines have not been the same team on offense as they were a season ago, but are still generating more points on a per-possession basis than the Hoosiers, with Michigan 66th in the country in this category and Indiana 85th.

Michigan had COVID issues they had to deal with to begin conference play and with the roster back to full strength, the Wolverines will get back to the form that many were expecting entering the season.

Pick: Michigan + 4
