Joe D'Amico's NCAAB St.Louis/MSU Winner
Saint Louis vs. Michigan State,
03/18/2012 14:45 EDT,
Score: 61 - 65
Point Spread: -7/-110 Michigan State
Today's winner is Michigan State over Saint Louis.
Saint Louis has had trouble going up against teams with height and muscle this season. Let's face it, the Billikens were held to 2 of 15 shooting from beyond the arc and committed 17 TOs against Memphis on Friday. Memphis ain't no Michigan State. They have never won two games in the same NCAA Tourney. The Spartans will own the glass here. Draymond Green (16.3 PPG/104 RPG) is a stud. Green, along with big men, Nix and Payne will score at will while they make it impossible for Saint Louis' PG, Mitchell to get points. The Spartans are 20-8 ATS their L28 games vs. teams with a SU record, 19-6-1 ATS their L26 NCAAB Tournament games played as a favorite, and 21-8 ATS their L29 games played overall. The Billikens are 1-3-2 ATS their L6 games played following a SU win, 1-6 ATS their L7 games played on a neutral floor as a 'dog, and 1-4 ATS their L5 games played vs. the Big 10. Take Michigan State. Thank you.
