A brief recap of the MSU Spartans’ The Spartans’ 9-0 start in league play was the best in school history. They then lost four of six games to fall into second place for the first time. The Spartans started 4-0 in Big Ten road games, giving them a program-best stretch of 12 wins in 13 Big Ten road games.
Five of Michigan State’s losses came against good competition away from home—at North Carolina and Texas, vs. Florida in Atlantic City, then at Wisconsin and Illinois. The sixth and seventh losses came at home to the Big Ten’s best, Purdue and Ohio State. Sunday’s win at Purdue has the Spartans in line to win a share of the Big Ten title if it closes the regular season with home wins over Penn State and Michigan and then we will witness very different line changes for NCAA betting and basketball betting odds for the Big Ten fans and fanatics.
Looking at the Penn State Nittany Lions a fan made this interesting statement, “It has always been a mystery to me that Penn State, with a student base of 40,000 , cannot find 5 big-time basketball players so that we can go to the tourney. Can’t we throw money at this problem and get a top notch coach and some kids to come out to Penn State? It was a familiar theme during PSU’s 12 game losing streak earlier this season when the Coach would enter the media room after a game and remark that the Nittany lions need to “make some shots.” The team is proving its coach correct late in the college basketball betting season averaging more than 70 points per game over last four games of which they have won three of the games. With shooting improvements like that it should make the NCAA betting and basketball betting fanatics eager to make their wagers.
The Nittany Lions of Penn Stated closes their season with games against Michigan State and Purdue and will need the aggressive, play of Junior Jeff Brooks and the continuous consistent play of guard Taylor battle and even if they win the balance of the games they would need a Big Ten Tournament miracle or they will be spending the postseason at home.
