TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, JANUARY 7TH
#672 MICHIGAN ST (-3′) over Michigan at 2:30 PM EST
Currently on a 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS run and playing some of its best basketball of the season, Michigan State will be primed and ready for this revenge battle. The Spartans (+4.5) traveled to Ann Arbor back on March 1st, 2022 and left with an 87-70 whipping in their pocket. Rest assured; head coach Tom Izzo will have his troops prepared for this battle.
A quick glance at the History Book shows that MSU has played well in this series when competing against a UM team that arrives with confidence off a straight up win posting a reliable 17-6 SU and 16-7 ATS record. In this run playing in the comforts of home, Sparty improves to an elite 12-1 SU and 11-2 ATS. Also, inside the Breslin Center hosting an opponent that arrives with steam off a straight up victory, Michigan State owns a lucrative 131-80-1 ATS mark including an incredible 76-39-1 ATS in this set provided the Spartans are running the court with four or more days of rest. With those two parameters live and this being a conference game, Coach Izzo’s boys jump to a solid 55-23-1 ATS including an eye-popping 49-15-1 ATS provided they are favored by -4 or more.
Off back-to-back SU and ATS home wins over Maryland and Penn State, this is going to be a difficult encore for Michigan. As it stands, the Wolverines are just 25-32 ATS in their last 57 lined games including a rough 5-20 ATS provided they hit the hardwood off a pointspread win. With those two parameters cranking away and the Maize and Blue off two or more straight up wins, this angle falls to a miserable 0-8 ATS. Also, in true road games busting in with a bundle of confidence off two or more straight up wins, UM owns a timid 52-77 SU and 48-75-2 ATS tally including a pitiful 36-66 SU and 36-63-2 ATS if they played in the comforts of home last.
Ranked second in the Big 10 in scoring defense (allow an avg of 61.3 ppg) and fourth in field-goal percentage defense (39.2 percent), the Green & White will lean on their tenacious stop unit to help cash this revenge rivalry payday. Take Michigan State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
