Point Spread: -4½/-110 Michigan State
Today's winner is Michigan State over Purdue. This is my No Limit Winner.
This game has major Conference and post-season implications. Michigan State has won and covered the L2 meetings over Purdue, including a 83-58 beat down this season about 5 weeks ago. Purdue could not handle Michigan State's muscle in the paint and the Spartan's defense overall proved to be "overwhelming" to the Boilermakers. MSU held Forward, Robbie Hummel to just 2 points on an 0 for 11 shooting night. Since then Purdue lost both Barlow and Byrd. The duo round out the units starting five. Without them, the Boilermakers are missing a huge part of their back court not to mention their combined 16.3 PPG. MSU is led by one of the nation's best players in Draymond Green. The Forward is averaging 15.2 PPG and 10.4 RPG. The Spartans have 3 road victories over nationally ranked opponents this year. They have won and covered 4 straight and 6 of their L7 overall. The Boilermakers are 1-4 ATS their L5 games played at home while the Spartans are 4-0 ATS their L4 games played vs. the Big 10. Take Michigan State. Thank you.
