Score: 52 - 65
Point Spread: -3½/-110 Michigan State
Both teams come off impressive wins in the quarterfinals. Michigan State cruised past Iowa 92-75 while Wisconsin put on an impressive showing in a 79-71 win over Indiana. Michigan State played a near flawless game against the Hawkeyes and I think this team it out to prove that those two losses to end the season were a fluke. I know Michigan State beat Wisconsin in both regular season meetings and its hard to win three straight over the same team, but this Spartan club is coached by one of the best tournament head coaches in Tom Izzo. He wants too wants the rest of the conference to know that they are the best team.
As good as Michigan State looked against Iowa, they tend to play even better against the top teams. The Spartans are 15-8 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record this season. Worried about Wisconsin's defense? Michigan State is 6-0 ATS versus excellent defensive teams - allowing
