Michigan State is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win. The over is 4-0 in Michigan State’s last 4 games. Wisconsin is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The over is 5-2 in Wisconsin’s last 7 games. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
These two teams split the season series with Wisconsin winning 70-62 and Michigan State winning 86-74. The health of Johnny Davis will be a critical part to this game, as Wisconsin is a completely different team without him. Michigan State ran out to a big lead against Maryland in the second round of the tournament and almost allowed a huge comeback. I am taking the over in this game as Michigan State as struggled on defense in their last few games.
