Betting on the Michigan State Spartans
- Regular Season Record: 14-7
Michigan State is above .500 in Big Ten play with a 6-4 record against conference rivals in the season, so far. That is also after the Spartans escaped with a 63-61 victory in East Lansing over the Iowa Hawkeyes on Thursday.
The Spartans, who are fourth in the Big Ten standings, are also now 3-03 against AP poll top 25 teams this season, and one of those losses was against the Boilermakers on Jan. 16 at home, 64-63. Despite that loss, Michigan State showed it can keep in step with a tough team like Purdue, especially if its defense shows up again.
Michigan State held the Boilermakers to only 42.3 FG%. Michigan State opponents are shooting just 40.7 FG% this season. The Spartans are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games.
Betting on the Purdue Boilermakers
- Regular Season Record: 20-1
Purdue is still pacing everyone in the Big Ten. With nine wins against conference rivals and just a loss, which was a 65-64 upset defeat to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Jan. 2, the Boilermakers are head and shoulders above everyone else in the league.
Since that loss to the Scarlet Knights, Purdue has ripped seven straight wins and could extend that undefeated streak to eight contests at home. To play at home in this rematch versus Michigan State is quite the convenience for the Boilermakers, who are 9-1 as well in home games so far in the 2022-23 college basketball campaign.
Purdue is 5-4-1 ATS in its last 10 games as the home team against the Spartans.
Purdue should have won by a wider margin in the first meeting with the Spartans. Look for Zach Edey and the Boilermakers to make a louder statement this time in the form of a double-digit victory.,
Prediction: Purdue wins by at least 11 points.
