Against The Spread Pick
The Michigan State Spartans look like one of the best teams in basketball at home, but away from home they don’t even look like a tournament team. Two games ago on the road against Purdue they scored only 42 points and in their last game against Indiana they lost by four, but they probably shouldn’t have been that close. They are giving up over 70 points per game, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Daniel Oturu is averaging almost 20 points per game and the Spartans don’t have anyone to match up with them. The Golden Gophers are 7-3 against the spread in the last ten games overall. Back the Golden Gophers to win this game.
Over Under Pick
Away from home the Spartans are averaging 64.5 points per game and they are going to have struggles scoring in this game. The Gophers have also been playing in lower paced games as of late averaging only 65.2 points per game over the last fie. The under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings played between the two teams in Minnesota. The under is 20-6 in the last 26 meetings the played between the two teams. Back the under to cash with ease.
