Against The Spread Pick
The Michigan State Spartans have had their fair share of trouble on the road this season, but the Badgers are going through all kinds of turmoil. Brad Davison is suspended for this game after a cheap shot during their game against Iowa. Kobe King, who was averaging 10 points per game, has left the team, and they are going to be in big trouble in this game without those two. Over the last five games, the Badgers are giving up 65.4 points per game, and they aren’t going to have the offense to keep up. The Spartans are 13-5 against the spread in the last 18 meetings between the two teams. Back the Spartans to cover the spread.
Over Under Pick
The Badgers’ defense is bad, and they Spartans can score plenty, but the Badgers’ offense still isn’t going to do enough to push this total up. The Badgers scored only 51 points against Purdue and they won’t get any higher than 51 in this game. The under is 7-3 in the Badgers’ last ten games. This is a lean, but back the under.
