Against The Spread Pick
Despite Michigan State going 1-4 in their last five games, they are still the overwhelming favorites in tonight’s game vs the Nebraska Cornhuskers. To be fair, three of Michigan State’s losses in those five games came against teams ahead of them in the Big 10 standings. Meanwhile, Nebraska is on a 10-game losing streak and there is no indication that they will turn it around tonight. Nebraska’s defense is atrocious, and their offense isn’t too much better. On the other side, Michigan State ranks just outside the AP top 25, and their offense ranks in the top 20 in division one basketball. Don’t let Michigan State’s last five games scare you at all, take the Spartans tonight.
Over Under Pick
The last five games are pretty much all you need to hear about the over under tonight. The two teams are averaging a combined 133 points per game over their last five games. Michigan State is 3-2 toward the under their last five games, and Nebraska’s lackluster offense won’t be enough to reach the quota. The under is the easy pick tonight. Nebraska’s defense also usually plays better at home.
