The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be on the road to take on the Michigan State Spartans on Wednesday, January 5th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Jack Breslin Student Events Center.
The Cornhuskers started off as a 16.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 15.5. The total has gone from 149 to 150.5.
So far, it has not been a very good season for this Nebraska team. Sure, they could improve as the year goes on, but I am not sold on that one, truthfully.
The Cornhuskers got beaten by the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday by a score of 87-79. They will once again be in for a challenge when they face a very talented and well-coached Michigan State team on Wednesday.
This squad has already faced some very good teams, but they just have not been able to beat them. At some point, you have to beat the stout competition in order to get respect in this league.
Overtime is what did them in on Sunday. It was a close game, but once the game went past regulation, the Buckeyes proved to be too much for the Huskers to handle.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State has had a very good season so far. It was amazing that they were not ranked in the early part of the year because they definitely seem like a team that could make a deep run in March.
The Spartans currently have a record of 12-2. It is going to be hard to maintain that pace when they only play teams from the Big Ten, but I still feel they will have a solid record when all is said and done.
Sparty beat the Northwestern Wildcats on Sunday by a score of 73-67. It was by no means an easy win, but they did what they had to do to beat a good team on the road.
In the win over Northwestern, the leading scorer for this crew was Gabe Brown, who had 20 points. Also, Marcus Bingham Jr. had 13 points and 9 rebounds.

Free Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Michigan State Spartans NCAAB Summary:
I can see Michigan State being too much for Nebraska to handle in this Big Ten tilt.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Michigan State ATS
As of late, Michigan State has been playing some good basketball and I feel that can continue on Wednesday night. Their opponent is not on the same level as them and they need to be able to show that in this game.
When you look at their numbers and schedule, Nebraska is really not that great of a team. They are going to have a tall order to go on the road to face this Spartans team in a tough environment. I am not so sure that they are ready for it.
15.5 may seem like a high number to lay, but when I picture in my head how this game is going to, I do not see the Huskers being all that competitive. If Sparty is on their game, they will make this game uncompetitive.
I am taking Michigan State laying the points at home here.
