We have been lucky to have so many great matchup in the early going of the college basketball season and this should be another treat. For Michigan State this will be their third third game against elite competition already.
Notre Dame hasn’t played as many but they are coming off a win against Wichita State which is as good as anybody has this season. They are on a pretty loft perch at the moment and seeking to prove they belong.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Irish are always a sleeper but if they keep playing like they have they are going to become a favourite. They are probably not the most talented group but they have experience and enough of everything to compete with everyone.
If you like sports you have to like Bonzie Colson. He is 6’6″ but he might be the best rebounder in all of college basketball and in a pace and space generation he has become a consistent scorer. No clue about NBA potential but it doesn’t really matter.
Colson is a senior and so is PG Matt Farrell. Farrell is a senior who has gotten better every season and leaves it all on the court in every game. This year his scoring is way up and he is one of the best on the ball defenders in the college game.
Those two are the givens but the reason Notre Dame is so dangerous this season is the emergence of Temple Gibbs. He struggled to find his role as a freshman but this season his athleticism and ability to shoot from range have been very effective.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans were one of the big winners in the PK80 tournament last week. They really beat up UNC in the final, forcing them into an historically bad shooting performance. The defense looked great but the offense wasn’t impressive.
Miles Bridges is the star of the team and may ultimately be in the player of the year race but he has not done much this season. This would be a perfect game for him to show that he belongs in the discussion with other elite players.
Bridges gets a lot of publicity but if the Spartans achieve big goals as a team it will be because the backcourt of Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford perform. Both are sophomores who have already shown big lifts in their games. They can score and set the Sparty defense.
That defense is helped by the presence of Jaren Jackson. Jackson is a springy long post who already shown great activity on the boards and ability to alter and block shots. He is not super hungry on offense too which works with this group.

Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Michigan State Spartans NCAAB Prediction:
This should be a good game. Notre Dame does not have as much depth so they will look to play it at a slower pace, like they did against Wichita State. If they can do that I can see this game mimicking that one.
I think you have to give Sparty some edge for being at home. Though it is not like Notre Dame hasn’t gone into tough environments with regularity in the ACC. They won’t be intimidated but it could be a factor overall.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
Look for Michigan State to be -5. They will win but you might find some value fading them in the first half. ND will come out with a plan and execute especially after starting so sluggish against the Shockers.
