Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State has had a helluva season so far. I have really liked the things that I have seen out of them so far in the 2021-2022 season.
The Spartans took care of the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Wednesday by a score of 79-67. They did just what they had to do against a team they are better than.
The only thing that I can really criticize this team about so far is that when they have gone up against the very good teams(Kansas and Baylor), the results have not been so great for them. With that said, they have still taken care of some non-cupcake squads as well.
Max Christie was the leading scorer for this group in their last game with 21 points and 4 rebounds. Gabe Brown also chipped in 14 points and 4 boards.
To me, Michigan has underperformed this season. I think a lot of people had them playing better than they have, but they just have not been able to find their rhythm yet. Of course, they can still get better, but I would not bank on it.
At the moment, the Wolverines have a record of 7-6. That is not going to get it done and not to mention, some of their losses have just been unacceptable. They will certainly have their hands full on Saturday when they face a top-ten team in America in Sparty.
This club got beaten by the UCF Knights on December 30th by a score of 85-71. The task will only be more challenging when they face this highly talented and well-coached Michigan State team.
In their last loss, they totally let the second half get away from them, as they got outscored by a 54-36 margin. Those sorts of things just cannot happen if you want to be a team that wins on a consistent basis.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Michigan State ATS
Listen, the Spartans are going on the road in a hostile environment, but this is a game they cannot drop, especially when they are facing a Wolverines team that has been struggling
Sparty has been playing well as of late and I would not be surprised if that keeps up on Saturday.
Based on how they have been playing, I cannot lay the 2 points with the Wolverines, especially when they are going against a very talented Michigan State team.
Give me the Spartans getting 2 points in this rivalry game.
