NCAA basketball betting players are used to seeing Michigan State atop the Big Ten standings, but now the Spartans are in genuine danger of missing the Tournament for the first time since 1997. The task will get no easier for Tom Izzo’s men as they travel to Columbus to face Ohio State, who will be eager to bounce back from their first loss of the season.

The Spartans (14-10, 6-6) got their second win in seven games with a 75-57 victory over Penn State at home, and at this point, every one counts for Michigan State. Online horse betting players know the importance of a quick start, and the Spartans got it as they ended up going into the locker room up by 20 points. Kalin Lucas poured in 24 points, while Draymond Green had a triple-double with 15 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists for the Spartans, becoming the third Spartan in Michigan State history to notch a triple-double, but Delvin Roe hurt his knee while helping his teammate get into the history books late in the game.

The Buckeyes (24-1, 11-1) lost a 15-point lead in a 71-67 loss at Wisconsin, as they failed to keep Badgers guard Jordan Taylor in control (he scored 21 of his 27 points after the break).William Buford had 21 points, while Jared Sullinger added 19 points and 12 boards, the 12th double-double of the season for the freshman.

Ohio State played as well as anyone has played in one of the toughest arenas in the country, and this game could have gone either way, but the Buckeyes can now play without the burden of chasing an undefeated season, and they’re still one of the teams we’d bet 5dimes on in the Tournament.

The NCAA basketball betting odds in this game will surely go towards the Buckeyes, and it may get even worse for the Spartans if Roe can’t suit up as he is their second-leading rebounder and best shotblocker. The Buckeyes are 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five at home against the Spartans, but it would be a massive upset if Ohio State were to lose for the first time this season at home, and they’ve won 18 in a row overall at “The Schott”. This edition of the Michigan State Spartans aren’t as tough as their predecessors, which means they’re going to have a hard time controlling Sullinger, arguably the best big man in the country, and if you send more defenders at him, the Buckeyes’ three-point shooters will find more space. This could end up getting ugly, so take the Ohio State Buckeyes in your sports betting book.

Poolside Rants hails from beautiful Bozeman Montana by way of Toronto, Canada. (Blame his wife for the move). He’s a Dallas Cowboys football honk. But please….don’t hold that against him. The man knows his sports and has uncanny knowledge when it comes to picking games.
