Against The Spread Pick
The Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan State Spartans face off on Friday night and in this game the value lies with the Spartans. The Spartans lost their last game against the Purdue Boilermakers, but in their previous five games they were all at home and they won and covered each of the spreads. Away from home, the Badgers are averaging 61.2 points per game, and that type of offense isn’t going to be enough. Two games ago against the Gophers, Cassius Winston put up 27 points, and he is going to be the difference in this game. The Badgers are 5-12 against the spread in the last 17 meetings between the two teams.
Over Under Pick
The Spartans are going to get their points in this game, the big question is just how many the Badgers are going to put up. Over the last five games the Spartans are averaging 74.8 points per game but in this game it feels like they are going to finish right around 70. With the Badgers’ offense struggling on the road, they shouldn’t score above 55 points. The under is 7-1 in the Badgers’ last eight road games. Back the under to cash in this game.
