Michigan St. vs Minnesota
Last night in NCAA I was going against the line movement while this time I agree with most of the bettors who likes here much more the road team. Michigan State Spartans will host Minnesota Golden Gophers and my bet is on Minnesota plus the points. This is second game of the season between the Spartans and Golden Gophers. In first one Michigan State prevailed with minimal 74:73 road victory and after Over Time played. So, it was also a little bit fortunate win for the Spartans who at one moment were in even 13 pts deficit. But seems like at the end mutual meetings between these two are always super tied. I mean, the mentioned Over Time that happened on December 27th, was not the first one between them. In last four games between Michigan State and Minnesota, even three times happened Over Time. Today I do not see anything else than again very tied game, so underdog plus the points already is looking like the right play.
Minnesota Golden Gophers are 15-2 so far, Michigan State Spartans 11-6. As for the Big Ten games, both are tied at 3:1 together with Purdue, Nebraska and Maryland.
Not just that overall numbers speak more in favor of the visiting team but also this spot seems to be on their side. Since above mentioned late December defeat from Michigan State, Minnesota made several straight victories and against opponents of decent quality (at home vs Ohio State and on the road against Purdue and Northwestern). Michigan State on the other side is coming from unpleasant loss from Penn State in game where never stood real chance.
