Big Ten basketball sees the Michigan Wolverines on the road to take on the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday, January 29th.
The tip-off is set for 12:30 ET from Jack Breslin Student Events Center.
The Spartans started off as a 5 point favorite and that number is now down to 2.5. The total has gone from 137.5 to 139.
In a season that was supposed to be a very good one, it has not been all that promising for Michigan so far. Quite frankly, I have not been impressed at all with the way these guys have played for the majority of the time.
The Wolverines did beat the Northwestern Wildcats on Wednesday by a score of 72-70. It was a game that could have gone either way, but they were able to hold on and get the victory.
It is certainly possible that these guys could turn it around and be more consistent as the year goes on, but I would not count on it. At this point, I think we have a pretty good understanding of what a team is going to be for the rest of the season.
In the win over Northwestern, the leading scorer for this team was Caleb Houstan, who had 18 points. Devante Jones also added in 15 points and 6 assists.
Michigan State Spartans
The 2021-2022 season has been a good one for Michigan State. I really like the direction that this team is headed in.
The Spartans currently have a record of 15-4 and they are ranked as the number 10 team in the land. There are certainly a lot of teams in the Big Ten that have been impressive so far, but this team is right at the top of the list.
This ball club lost to the Illinois Fighting Illini on Tuesday by a score of 56-55. That would have certainly been a signature win for them if they were able to get the job done there.
Defensively, I really like the way this group played in their last game. On the flip side, the offense was simply not good enough. It is very challenging to win games when you score as few points as they did in that contest.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Michigan State ATS
A lot of times in these rivalry games, it can be hard to predict. Sparty is the better team here, but that does not automatically mean they are just going to walk all over the Wolverines.
I can see this being the type of game that is close for a bit, but I do think the Spartans will be too much for the Wolverines as the game goes on. They are the more complete team and I can see them putting that on display.
It may not be a total crushing, but I like Michigan State to do enough to get the cover.
Give me Michigan state at -2.5 here.
