TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, MARCH 7TH
#744 MICHIGAN ST (+8′) over Michigan at 4:30 PM EST
Off the 19-point loss in Ann Arbor on Thursday, Michigan State will return home and give Michigan a game in East Lansing on Sunday. The Spartans have already knocked off No. 5 Illinois and No. 7 Ohio State inside the Breslin Center and they’ve got enough talent on the floor to dismiss the second-ranked Wolverines.
A quick glance at the History Book shows that MSU has played well in this series posting a proud 29-14 SU record in the last 43 meetings. Equally impressive, at home arriving without confidence off a straight up loss, the Spartans hold a reliable 116-22 SU and 68-50-3 ATS mark including a blistering 72-10 SU and 47-27-2 ATS if their opponent played in the comforts of home last. With those two parameters clicking and the Green & White priced as an underdog or a favorite of -15 or less, this team trend jets to an incredible 58-10 SU and 41-19-2 ATS. Additionally, in last home game settings, head coach Tom Izzo’s boys hold a powerful 25-4 SU and 21-8 ATS in their last 29 tries including a spotless 3-0 SU and ATS if they are an underdog.
Beating Michigan won’t exactly be an easy task. The Wolverines are ranked No. 2 in the country for a number of good reasons. Thankfully, UM is locked into one of its worst wagering roles. As a guest arriving with confidence off a SU and ATS home win, the Maize and Blue have historically struggled inking a dismal 44-74 SU and 44-70-1 ATS record in their last 118 games. In this spot running against a foe that hits the court off a straight up loss, Michigan falls to a pitiful 26-42 SU and 22-45 ATS including a horrible 12-38 ATS if the Wolverines sport a team won/loss percentage greater than .625. With those three parameters in play and both UM and its opponent off a conference game, this situation crashes to a disturbing 9-35 ATS.
Sure, Sparty is playing its sixth game in 13 days. However, Coach Izzo holds one of the deepest benches in all of college basketball and he’ll use every player he’s got in order to pull off this upset on Senior Day. Take Michigan State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
