Northwestern Wildcats vs #10 Michigan State Spartans. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #10 Michigan State Spartans.

 

Northwestern has an ATS record of 5-8 heading into this matchup. This includes a five-game losing streak against the spread. They were 5.5 point favorites against Maryland in their most recent match but failed to cover by 12.5 points.

 

The Spartans, on the other hand, lost two straight games against the spread. They have a 9-7 ATS record overall. Expect Michigan State to take care of business at home in this contest. So far this season, the Spartans kept opponents to a 44 percent effective field goal percentage, which ranks them 20th in NCAA basketball.

 

Michigan State’s defense, I believe, will be the difference in a comfortable victory. The #10 Michigan State Spartans will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 77-64.
