Wisconsin vs Michigan St. by QuidProQuo
Wisconsin Badgers are making third straight semifinal appearance in Big Ten Tournament and they will try to advance to second straight title game in tonight's game vs. Michigan State Spartans. Game is in Indianapolis.
Statistically, these two teams are awfully close in almost all categories... The Spartans are 24-8 straight up, averaging 75.9 points per game, giving up 65.3 points per game, winning eight of last eleven overall. The Badgers are 26-6 straight up, averaging 73.5 and giving up 64 points per game, winning nine of last ten overall games.
No doubt both teams can play good basketball, but I expect Michigan St. to be able to win when it's important, which is tonight for both teams. I expect big game from Gary Harris and Branden Dawson tonight and love the spot the Spartans are in.
Spartans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite of 0.5-6.5. They are also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Badgers are only 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. win and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.
Lay points with Michigan State Spartans tonight...
