College Basketball Odds
Michigan State -10
Total: 147.5 points
Michigan State remains in the Top 10 despite dropping two straight games for the first time this season. That’s bad news for Illinois, a team that has struggled all season. Tom Izzo will certainly have gotten through to his team during practice the past week and this is a game the ninth-ranked team in the country should be able to file away as a win.
The Spartans are 6-2 in road games this season, Illinois is just 6-4 in home games. The Fighting Illini gave up an average of 78 points per game in those four losses at home as Georgetown, Florida Atlantic (yikes), Michigan and Wisconsin all found a way to pick up the win in Champaign. It’s going to take a big effort here from Illinois and even though they have won two of three, Michigan State can make them look bad here.
