The Minnesota Golden Gophers and Ohio State Buckeyes will square off today at 3:30 PM EST for the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis, Indiana. Minnesota came into the Big Ten conference tournament seeded sixth, but has knocked off both the second and third seeds thus far. Ohio State, seeded first in the tournament, had to nail a buzzer beater in their quarter final game against Michigan and needed double overtime to knock off Illinois on Saturday. These two teams have already met twice this season, with the home team winning each game. The Golden Gophers needed a big showing in this Big Ten tournament in order to secure a spot in the NCAA tournament, and it is likely that they have done it. Ohio State is most likely looking at a #2 seed in the NCAA tournament this week but have a shot at a #1 seed with a win this afternoon. Betting spread, line, odds, and my predictions for this Minnesota vs Ohio State Big Ten Championship game can be found below.
