NCAA Basketball Wagering - Michigan State Spartans do battle with Wisconsin Badgers in ranked Big Ten showdown
Wednesday, March 6th, 2013By Evan MacKay
College Basketball Betting Online: The Michigan State Spartans lost a heartbreaker to rival Michigan last weekend in a game that marked their third straight loss to a ranked opponent in the Big Ten. They will get a fourth chance at a top-25 conference foe on Thursday when they welcome the #22 Wisconsin Badgers into East Lansing for what Sparty hopes can be a rehabilitating win. The selection committee does not like to see slumps against quality opponents down the stretch, so a win here could be huge for Michigan State’s seeding in the tournament, let alone for your NCAA basketball wagering.
The Spartans easily could have won the Michigan game if it were not for missed free throws and bad decisions down the stretch. However, it is clutch time headiness that wins games in the tournament, so the miscues in Ann Arbor are a bad sign for a Sparty team eyeing the Final Four.
Before they even start that trek, they must first deal with a Wisconsin Badgers side that comes into this game off a loss of their own, though it came against a far lesser opponent than the top-10 Wolverines. Wisconsin lost by 13 to Purdue at home on Saturday, an outcome that will hurt them come Selection Sunday. A win over #10 Sparty would ease the pain of Saturday’s debacle, but it will not come easily.
The Spartans are a better team on paper, and they own the home court advantage. It will be up to head coach Tom Izzo to lift his team out of their current mire and get a key win before Sunday’s season ender against Northwestern.
I like the Spartans to win this game, but which team you go with in your NCAA basketball wagering depends on how the live lines deliver the spread. Check in daily for the most up to date odds on what should be an intriguing Big Ten showdown.
