Michigan State Spartans vs Purdue Boilermakers 3/12/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Michigan State Spartans will go against the #9 Purdue Boilermakers in a Big Ten Conference Semifinal clash in Gainbridge Fieldhouse, IN, on Lavietes Pavilion, Allston, at 3:30 PM ET.

 

Marcus Bingham Jr. led Michigan State to a 69-63 victory over Wisconsin with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and three blocked shots in just 22 minutes of action.

 

It’s the first time in Big Ten Tournament tradition that the top two seeds dropped in the quarterfinals, with the #1 seed Illinois losing to Indiana earlier. Tom Izzo, the tournament’s all-time winningest coach, has his Spartans back in contention for another Big Ten crown. 

 

Tyson Walker, a transfer from Northeastern and one of the new Spartan faces, is playing his best basketball in the last month. He had 11 points and seven assists, and he now looks to have a peculiar grasp on the Spartans’ point guard position.

 

Michigan State dominated this match with their defense, one night after defeating Maryland 76-72 with 13 three-point field goals.

 

Despite hitting just 1-of-11 from outside the arc in this match, the Spartans dug in defensively and stopped Wisconsin to a 37% shooting percentage. They restricted Big Ten Player of the Year Johnny Davis to only 11 points on 3-of-19 shooting.

 

  • The University of Michigan State Spartans is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Michigan State is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches against Purdue.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Michigan State’s last 5 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan State Spartans vs Purdue Boilermakers Predictions 3/12/2022

 

In the Big Ten Tournament, the Purdue Boilermakers are now the highest seed left. It appeared at the start of their quarterfinal match against Penn State that the Boilermakers would be joining the top two teams on the road back to Bloomington.

 

Purdue, on the other hand, shook off the rust and beat the Nittany Lions to advance to the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals. The Boilermakers, who trailed for much of the first half, came alive in the second half to take a 35-31 advantage into halftime.

 

Purdue exploited their inside-out approach to perfection in the second half, wearing out the tenacious but outmatched Nittany Lions 69-61. Jayden Ivey led the way with 17 points, while Brandon Newman, a rarely utilized reserve guard, added 11 points off the bench.

 

Purdue has a chance to get a #1 or #2 seed in the NCAA Tournament if they can finish strong and win the Big Ten Championship.

 

Purdue used what the Spartans provided them in the first meeting to keep feeding Edey throughout the game. The big guy replied with 25 points, but the choice to spotlight him may have disrupted the flow on some of his teammates. 

 

  • The University of Purdue Boilermakers is 11-3 SU in their last 14 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Purdue’s last 7 matches against Michigan State.
  • The Boilermakers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan State Spartans vs #9 Purdue Boilermakers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Purdue Boilermakers. Purdue is the most skilled squad in the Big Ten Conference, even if they struggled down the stretch and finished 4-3.

 

They have two terrific big players, spot-up shooters, and they can do it all. Izzo has his squad on the right track and appeared to find something with Bingham Jr.’s improved performance, but he’ll have his hands full with Edey and Travion Williams’ two-headed monster.

 

I believe the game will be close for a while, but Purdue’s interior size and strength, paired with their seasoned guards, will finally win out and allow Purdue to break away in the second half. Purdue will win to a predicted score 75-70.
