Michigan State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a win. The over is 5-2 in Michigan State’s last 7 games. Marquette is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games. The under is 6-0 in Marquette’s last 6 neutral site games.
Marquette comes into this game on a 10 game winning streak and has allowed 61 and 51 points in their last two games. Michigan State has won three of their last four games, but they have been very inconsistent this season. Marquette is shooting 48% from the field and I like them in this game. I think Kam Jones is going to have another huge game and I like the Golden Eagles to get to the Sweet 16.
