Betting Michigan State Spartans

They had gone just 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS against the spread in the 6 games before the NCAA tourney.

They have gone 14-1 SU and 11-4 ATS against the spread the past 15 times that they have closed as a favorite. The Spartans have a couple of strong scoring options in Tyson Walker and Joey Hauser, but this team is not at its best in a wide-open contest. Michigan State’s best bet to win this game is to slow the pace and be as dominant on defense as they have been through its first 2 games in the Tournament.

Betting Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas State’s offensive attack is rolling as the Wildcats have been scoring at least 75 points in 4 of their last 5 games. Keyontae Johnson and Markquis Nowell have become one of the top 1-2 punches on offense in the country this year.

Kansas State is good enough offensively to give the Spartans’ tough defense some difficulty, but the Wildcats are only going to win this game if they keep their strong defensive play.

Kentucky Wildcats 75-69 on Sunday afternoon. Markquis Nowell did lead the way offensively with 27 points and 9 assists in the upset win as three-point underdogs.

Michigan State Spartans vs. Kansas State Wildcats Prediction

The Spartans beat a game Marquette team on Sunday. Unless they are playing flawless basketball in this Sweet 16 game, we do not think that Kansas State will be able to keep a pace conducive to a win or even a cover. It is going to be a good one to watch, nonetheless.
