Northwestern is ranked inside the top-50 at KenPom but there are ten other Big Ten teams ahead of it. So two years after finally getting into the NCAA Tournament, it’s going to take some work to just get back on the bubble this time around.
A win against Oklahoma would have helped but the Sooners pushed the ‘Cats around on the glass and won by seven in Evanston.
This isn’t the start to Big Ten play but rather a continuation after some matchups right at the start of December. Northwestern went to Indiana and hosted Michigan, two of those teams ahead of it in the KenPom power rankings.
And the ‘Cats lost both by two measly points. They’ll be hard-pressed to keep this game that close. If Oklahoma pushed Northwestern around on the glass, Michigan State should do at least as much on its home floor.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State has been a favorite in all twelve of its games since losing to Kansas in the first game of the season and it has covered nine of them, including the last two as 24-point chalk.
It’s been about a month since the Spartans were last tested, against the Gators in Gainesville. They escaped with a four-point win.
They’re also 2–0 in the conference, covering as eight-point favorites at Rutgers and blowing out Iowa at the Breslin Center.
This is a bad bunch and I’m partial to the idea that the path to the Big Ten title goes through East Lansing and not Ann Arbor.

Free Northwestern Wildcats Huskies vs. Michigan State Spartans NCAAB Prediction: Sparty by low double-digits.
Ten sounds about right for this game. Northwestern can play and it will play hard but Michigan State at home is a solid favorite against anyone in the conference.
