3* NCAAB *BEST BET* on Nebraska +7.5
This is a sandwich game for Michigan State, which is coming off its biggest win of the season (over previously undefeated Indiana) and has Wisconsin on the road next. Nebraska, which was embarrassed by Wisconsin in its last game, won't be lacking motivation here.
We cashed in with Michigan State as a favorite Wednesday, but they were clearly showing the value at home against an Indiana team the public had fallen in love with. With that said, fading Michigan State when it is laying points has been the play more times than not in recent years. In fact, the Spartans are just 22-36 ATS in their last 58 games as a favorite.
Sparty is almost always overvalued on Saturday when we see the largest volume of college hoops betting. As a result, it is just 1-7-1 ATS in its last 9 Saturday games. Take Nebraska and the points.
