Score: 75 - 80
Point Spread: -8½/-105 Michigan State
Today's winner is Michigan State over Illinois. This is my 50 Star Winner.
Michigan State can play defense. The Spartan's allow a mere 54.2 PPG at home this season. The team comes off of a 75-70 loss to Indiana after riding a 6-game win streak. MSU is 12-0 SU at home, outscoring opponents by an average of 17.2 PPG. Spartans top-scorer, Keith Appling will be on a mission here, as the Guard posted a season-low, 3 points in 19 minutes in the Hoosier's contest on Sunday. Illinois' flaws are now exposed. They can't rebound. Hence their skid of dropping 6 of their L9 SU, and going 2-8 ATS their L10. Big revenge factor as well as MSU lost 42-41 in LY's meeting. Take Michigan State. Thank you.
