A Big Ten battle brews in Madison when Michigan State heads to Wisconsin for a Friday night showdown. Both these powers are sitting atop the conference standings with just a single loss each inside Big Ten play. Wisconsin is giving three. Let’s go.
I was skeptical of Michigan State early on because they were replacing so much coming into the season. They needed time. A well-balanced schedule of difficult and manageable games (plus a few freebies) has really helped them round into form and show us who they can be. It’s been in a huge part thanks to senior Gabe Brown who has doubled his scoring output since last season. If the Spartans want to get back on track after losing to Northwestern, it will largely be on his back. Go ahead and gamble for your favorite team at 벳무브 가입 a great betting sports website.
Wisconsin is a fierce opponent for anyone this season. The “hold ’em to 50” team is no more and we can stare at Johnny Davis for that influx of offense. He’s averaging 22.1 points per this season, up from 7 last year and he’s adding another 7.5 rebounds per outing. He’s not alone, guard Brad Davison has been equally consistent, scoring in double figures in 6 of the 7 Big Ten games thus far.
Wisconsin has been a betting dream. They won 6 straight. They’ve covered five in a row. They are 8-2 ATS as a favorite in their last ten and overall are 12-5 ATS. Their hands will be full with a strong defensive Spartans team that is 3-0 on the road and won twice on other conference opponents’ courts. Wisconsin’s only home loss was vs. Ohio State on December 11.
State’s in the top 30 in opponent’s field goal percentage and three-point percentage but that’s not the Badgers’ strong suit anyway. In fact, strictly statistically speaking, nothing is the Badgers’ strength. Well, almost nothing. Guard play. That’s where Wisconsin peaks and if your team has Johnny Davis on it, it’s got me betting on it. Tonight, home team, Wisconsin -3.
