Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State has played quite well this season and they are ranked as the number 14 team in the nation. Overall, I have really liked what I have seen out of this group.
The Spartans did drop to the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday by a score of 64-62. That was definitely an upset game, but they are going to have to move on and focus on the Badgers.
One knock on this team is that they have not been able to take care of the good teams. They will get a chance on Friday to partially change that narrative when they hit the road to face a very talented and well-coached Wisconsin team.
In the loss to Northwestern, they were just never able to get into a groove. It was a game in which they should have been able to take of control of, but the Wildcats had different plans.
Wisconsin just keeps on playing at a very high level. It is hard not to like what these guys have done so far.
The Badgers currently have an impressive record of 15-2. This is a team that already has some impressive victories, but the one that really stands out to me is the one over the Purdue Boilermakers. With that win, they showed that they can compete with the very best in college hoops.
This team took care of the Northwestern Wildcats on Tuesday by a score of 82-76. It was a close game, but they figured out a way to secure the victory.
The offense was really balanced in their last outing. The leading scorer was Jonathan Davis, who had 27 points and 8 rebounds. Also, both Chucky Hepburn and Tyler Wahl contributed 14 points in the game.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Wisconsin ATS
The Badgers will once again look to knock off a tough team when they host Sparty. It is one they should be able to get, but it likely will not be an easy one.
I Respect the Spartans as a team, but I do not feel they are the same level as the Badgers and I can see that being evident on Friday.
It could be close for a bit, but I just think the physicality for Wisconsin will be too much for the Spartans to handle on the road. The number is not too high to the point where I do not like it.
My play is on Wisconsin at -4.5 here.
