Game of the Day: Michigan State at Michigan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (-2.5)

The race for first place in the Big Ten takes center stage Sunday when Michigan hosts rival Michigan State in one of the most anticipated of the 173 meetings between the teams. Both teams have exchanged wins and losses since the Wolverines picked up an 80-75 win at the Spartans on Jan. 25 to assume to the top spot in the conference at the time. No. 20 Michigan's see-saw ride continued with a 75-62 loss to Wisconsin on Sunday, as Caris LeVert tallied a career-high 25 points but received little support in the Wolverines' lowest-scoring effort at home since a 58-57 win over Michigan State last March.

The 14th-ranked Spartans have not won consecutive games since losing forward Branden Dawson to a broken hand prior to the meeting with Michigan last month, and Dawson remains unavailable after having the pins removed from the hand Friday. With its top rebounder and a standout defender still stuck on the sidelines, Michigan State stepped up its game on the perimeter in a 94-79 win at Purdue on Thursday. Gary Harris made six of the Spartans' school-record 17 3-pointers and finished with 25 points to lead the way.

TV: 12 p.m. ET, CBS

LINE HISTORY: The Wolverines opened as 2.5-point home faves

POWER RANKINGS: Michigan State (-12.4) - Michigan (-10.9) + Home Court (-3.0) = Michigan -1.5

INJURY WATCH: Michigan State - Branden Dawson (Out - Hand), Michigan - Mitch McGary (Out - Back)

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (22-5 SU, 15-9-2 ATS, 13-13-2 O/U): While Dawson remains out the Spartans will have the services of senior center Adreian Payne, who missed the first meeting between the rivals due to a foot injury, all part of an injury-plagued campaign for Tom Izzo's team. Payne is averaging 18 points and 6.8 rebounds in five games since his return, and guard Keith Appling produced nine assists in 25 minutes against the Boilermakers in his second game since coming back from a wrist ailment. If Appling continues to progress and Dawson's imminent return - which Izzo said could come in the Spartans' next game March 1 versus Illinois - occurs without a hitch Michigan State will look more like the team ranked second nationally in the preseason.

ABOUT MICHIGAN (18-7 SU, 12-10-1 ATS, 12-10-1 O/U): Nik Stauskas scored 19 points in the win over the Spartans last month, but has struggled a bit in the Wolverines' ensuing 3-3 stretch. Stauskas, who leads Michigan in scoring at 16.7, is averaging 11.2 points on 40 percent shooting during the six-game swoon, one reason that the league's top shooting team has been held to 70 points or less in four of its last five affairs. LeVert has done his part to fill the gap by averaging 16.3 points and hitting 46.4 percent of his 3-pointers in the six-game span.

TRENDS:

* Spartans are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Michigan.
* Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Spartans are 5-1 ATS in their last six vs. Big Ten.
* Wolverines are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight home games.

CONSENSUS: 53 percent of bets are on Michigan -2.5.

Spartans at Wolverines

February 23, 2014


Michigan State (22-5 SU, 15-10 ATS) at Michigan (18-7 SU, 12-10 ATS)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Michigan -1

No. 13 Michigan State will look to continue its hot shooting on Sunday as it travels to Ann Arbor to take on No. 20 Michigan in a game that could determine the Big Ten regular season title.

These two teams squared off in East Lansing earlier in the season on Jan. 25, with the Wolverines emerging with the 80-75 upset victory, to improve to 5-2 SU (4-3 ATS) in the past seven meetings of this in-state rivalry. However, the Spartans' second leading scorer, PF Adreian Payne was out due to injury in the game. Michigan did a terrific job shooting the ball from deep in that matchup, connecting on 11-of-19 from behind the three-point line. Michigan SG Nik Stauskas finished the game with 19 points, connecting on 5-of-6 attempts from deep. SG Gary Harris did everything he could do to keep the Spartans in the game, tallying 27 points (9-of-16 FG, 4-of-6 threes) and five rebounds.

Michigan State is coming off a 94-79 victory over Purdue on Thursday night to improve to 16-10 ATS overall, 10-4 ATS in Big Ten play and a perfect 8-0 ATS on the road. The Spartans were on fire from the outside, hitting a school record 17 three-pointers. Once again, it was Harris who led the way, scoring 25 points while hitting six threes.

Michigan (12-10-1 ATS overall) will be looking to bounce back from a 75-62 home loss to No. 21 Wisconsin in its most recent game last Sunday. The Wolverines compiled only five assists on 20 baskets and could not slow down the Badgers' offense, as Wisconsin turned the ball over only two times. SG Caris LeVert had a big game on the offensive end, finishing with 25 points (5-of-6 threes) and six rebounds.

As is the case with any Tom Izzo team, Michigan State has been strong on the boards this season, ranking 46th in the nation in rebounding with 38.0 RPG. This is also a very smart and unselfish club, with an outstanding 26 assists on its 30 made shots in the romp over Purdue, and it now ranks sixth in the country in assists with 17.5 APG. The problem with the Spartans offensively is that at times they have looked incredible (87.0 PPG in past three wins), but other times have struggled (56.3 PPG in past three losses).

Defensively, MSU ranks among the top-60 Division I teams in scoring defense (65.3 PPG, 56th), steals (7.4 SPG, 53rd) and blocks (4.8 BPG, 55th). There are plenty of weapons on this team to where it should not struggle scoring the ball.

While SG Gary Harris (17.8 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2.8 APG) was the star of the night against Purdue, PF Adreian Payne (16.7 PPG, 7.5 RPG) is playing some terrific basketball now that he's fully healthy. He played just 22 minutes in Thursday's blowout, but still finished with 23 points (4-of-8 threes) and four rebounds.

His great long-range shooting (44% threes) forces opposing big men to play defense on the perimeter, opening up driving lanes for players like Harris and PG Keith Appling (13.9 PPG, 4.9 APG, 3.5 APG). Appling did not have a big game scoring against the Boilermakers (just one point), but he did a great job of running the team and finding the open shooters with nine assists. Appling is the key for this team and especially in this contest, as he will be matched up against Derrick Walton Jr., the freshman point guard of the Wolverines.

While SGs Nik Stauskas (16.7 PPG, 44% threes, 3.5 APG) and Caris LeVert (13.0 PPG, 40% threes, 4.5 RPG) are the best scorers on the team, the Wolverines are going to go as freshman PG Derrick Walton Jr. takes them (8.4 PPG, 39% threes, 2.9 APG). In the loss to the Badgers last Sunday, Walton went scoreless with just one assist in 33 minutes. In the first matchup against the Spartans last month, he finished with 19 points, six rebounds and four assists in what was the best game of his career. For a freshman to do that at Michigan State is very impressive, and it shows the potential that Walton Jr. has.

Another guy that needs to step up for Michigan is PF Glenn Robinson III (12.8 PPG, 4.3 RPG). He is an exciting player when he is out in the open and attacking the rim, but in this game he must be a factor on the boards, as Robinson secured just one rebound in 26 meetings versus MSU last month. In that Jan. 25 meeting, the Wolverines were able to win the rebounding battle 35-29, but that was without Payne playing for the Spartans.

Michigan currently ranks 274th in the nation on the glass (32.9 RPG), but is one of the best shooting teams in the nation (47.9% FG, 25th in Div. I), while scoring 75.0 points per game (82nd in nation). If Michigan is able to win the rebounding battle again, then the Wolverines have a great chance of pulling off a rare season sweep over the Spartans.

Sunday's Pac-12 Action

February 22, 2014


Saving the best for last in men’s college basketball this weekend, the Pac-12 will take center stage on Sunday night with three intriguing matchups. At the top of the list is Arizona State against Utah. The Sun Devils are still in the hunt for the regular season conference title, but they cannot afford any more losses with just six games left on the slate.

Arizona State Sun Devils at Utah Utes (ESPNU, 8:00 p.m. ET)

The highlight of the Sun Devils’ season so far was a 69-66 overtime victory over then-No. 2 Arizona as 5 ½-point home underdogs on Feb. 14. They have had their share of disappointments as well with an 8-5 straight-up record in conference play. Arizona State has failed to cover in seven of its last 10 games as part of an overall record of 12-12 against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in 14 of 23 games this year.

Jahii Carson leads the Sun Devils in scoring with 18.8 points per game and Jermaine Marshall has also been very productive with 15.8 points while shooting an impressive 42.5 percent from 3-point range. The team is averaging 75.8 PPG and shooting 45.7 percent from the floor.

Utah hung tough in this past Wednesday’s 67-63 loss to Arizona, but still could not cover as a 3 ½-point home underdog. The Utes have now gone 3-5 SU in their last eight games and they are 2-4 ATS in their last six outings. The total ended as a PUSH against the Wildcats on a 130-point closing line after going OVER in six of their last nine games.

The Utes match up well against Arizona State with 78.1 PPG and a field goal percentage of 49.7 percent. Delon Wright is averaging 16 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists and Jordan Loveridge has also been a force with 15.2 points and a team-high 7.5 rebounds.

Utah comes into this conference clash as a four-point home favorite over the Sun Devils.

Arizona State won the first meeting this season 79-75 just barely failing to cover the 4 ½-point closing line at home. The home team in this series has now won eight of the last nine meetings SU, but Utah has paid off in the last six meetings ATS. The total went OVER the 135 ½-point line in that first game after staying UNDER in the previous four meetings.

USC Trojans at California Golden Bears (FOX Sports 1, 8:00 p.m. ET)

It has been one disappointment after another for the Trojans this season in conference play with just one SU victory against 12 losses. Their current losing streak reached seven games with a dismal 80-59 pounding at the hands of Stanford as 14-point road underdogs this past Thursday. USC has now failed to cover in its last four contests and it is a costly 3-10 ATS against the Pac-12 this year.

The Trojans’ offense has been effective for the most part with an average of 71.3 points led by Byron Wesley’s 17.6 PPG. Unfortunately, they have one of the worst defenses in Division I. USC is giving-up an average of 75.8 points a game, but this number has climbed its way to 81 points in conference play.

California made some noise earlier this month by ending Arizona’s 21-game winning streak in a 60-58 victory as a six-point home favorite, but its overall play has been spotty at best. The Golden Bears are just 3-5 SU in their last eight games including a 77-69 loss to USC on Jan. 22 as eight-point road favorites. They are 8-5 SU in the Pac-12 and 17-9 SU overall but they have fallen to 12-13 ATS after failing to cover in six of their last eight games.

The Golden Bears are averaging 74.6 points and pulling down 37 rebounds. Justin Cobbs has been the team’s leading scorer with 15.7 PPG and Richard Solomon has led the way under the boards with an average of 10.2 rebounds.

California opened as a 14 ½-point home favorite to avenge that earlier loss to the Trojans.

USC has gone 9-3-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings including a perfect 5-0-1 mark ATS on the road against the Golden Bears. The total has gone OVER in 16 of the last 22 meetings overall and in seven of the last nine meetings at Cal.

Washington State Cougars at Oregon Ducks (Pac-12 Network, 9:00 p.m. ET)

The Cougars are another team that has been beaten up in conference play with a SU record of 2-12. They were hammered by Oregon 71-44 in the first meeting this season as 6 ½-point home underdogs. Washington State has been a bit more competitive since that loss with a 3-3 mark ATS (1-5 SU) after failing to cover in six of its first eight conference games. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of 14 games in the Pac-12.

Scoring has been a major issue for Washington State with an average of just 62.6 PPG while shooting 40.9 percent from the field. Defensively, the Cougars are allowing an average of 66.7 PPG, but opposing teams have exceeded this number in six of their last seven games.

At one time Oregon was not only ranked No. 10 in the AP Top 25, it was considered a serious contender for the Pac-12 title. A perfect 12-0 SU run through the nonconference portion of its schedule gave way to a 5-8 SU crawl through the conference so far. The Ducks have posted back-to-back SU victories over Oregon State and Washington in their past two games in an attempt to turn things around. They have covered in three of their last four games, but overall they are a costly 4-9 ATS in conference play.

Oregon remains one of the highest scoring teams in the nation with 83.5 PPG and it is shooting 47.1 percent from the field. The Ducks have a foursome of players scoring in double figures led by Joseph Young’s 18.6 points. However they have had their issues slowing opponents down by allowing an average of 75.1 PPG.

The Ducks opened as 14 ½-point-point home favorites to complete the season sweep over Washington State.

Oregon brings six-game SU winning streak over the Cougars into Sunday’s matchup and a 7-3 edge ATS in the last 10 games. The total stayed UNDER the 134-point closing line in the first meeting this year after going OVER in three of the four previous games.

Game of the Day: Michigan State at Michigan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (-2.5)

The race for first place in the Big Ten takes center stage Sunday when Michigan hosts rival Michigan State in one of the most anticipated of the 173 meetings between the teams. Both teams have exchanged wins and losses since the Wolverines picked up an 80-75 win at the Spartans on Jan. 25 to assume to the top spot in the conference at the time. No. 20 Michigan's see-saw ride continued with a 75-62 loss to Wisconsin on Sunday, as Caris LeVert tallied a career-high 25 points but received little support in the Wolverines' lowest-scoring effort at home since a 58-57 win over Michigan State last March.

The 14th-ranked Spartans have not won consecutive games since losing forward Branden Dawson to a broken hand prior to the meeting with Michigan last month, and Dawson remains unavailable after having the pins removed from the hand Friday. With its top rebounder and a standout defender still stuck on the sidelines, Michigan State stepped up its game on the perimeter in a 94-79 win at Purdue on Thursday. Gary Harris made six of the Spartans' school-record 17 3-pointers and finished with 25 points to lead the way.

TV: 12 p.m. ET, CBS

LINE HISTORY: The Wolverines opened as 2.5-point home faves

POWER RANKINGS: Michigan State (-12.4) - Michigan (-10.9) + Home Court (-3.0) = Michigan -1.5

INJURY WATCH: Michigan State - Branden Dawson (Out - Hand), Michigan - Mitch McGary (Out - Back)

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (22-5 SU, 15-9-2 ATS, 13-13-2 O/U): While Dawson remains out the Spartans will have the services of senior center Adreian Payne, who missed the first meeting between the rivals due to a foot injury, all part of an injury-plagued campaign for Tom Izzo's team. Payne is averaging 18 points and 6.8 rebounds in five games since his return, and guard Keith Appling produced nine assists in 25 minutes against the Boilermakers in his second game since coming back from a wrist ailment. If Appling continues to progress and Dawson's imminent return - which Izzo said could come in the Spartans' next game March 1 versus Illinois - occurs without a hitch Michigan State will look more like the team ranked second nationally in the preseason.

ABOUT MICHIGAN (18-7 SU, 12-10-1 ATS, 12-10-1 O/U): Nik Stauskas scored 19 points in the win over the Spartans last month, but has struggled a bit in the Wolverines' ensuing 3-3 stretch. Stauskas, who leads Michigan in scoring at 16.7, is averaging 11.2 points on 40 percent shooting during the six-game swoon, one reason that the league's top shooting team has been held to 70 points or less in four of its last five affairs. LeVert has done his part to fill the gap by averaging 16.3 points and hitting 46.4 percent of his 3-pointers in the six-game span.

TRENDS:

* Spartans are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Michigan.
* Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Spartans are 5-1 ATS in their last six vs. Big Ten.
* Wolverines are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight home games.

CONSENSUS: 53 percent of bets are on Michigan -2.5.
