Iowa vs. Michigan State Prediction

I’m on Michigan State here. The Hawkeyes are a solid team with an offense that can keep them in any game. However, Big Ten home court, more often than not, has been money this season and this is when Sparty normally turns it on and plays their best ball of the season. Izzo has his guys working their magic again and I think Michigan State picks up a win and cover at home once again in this one.
