5* BIG TEN BLUE CHIP GAME OF THE MONTH
Wisconsin vs. Michigan State,
02/16/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 55 - 69
Point Spread: -5½/-110 Michigan State
Not to take anything away from Wisconsin but I think the Spartans are a step ahead of the Badgers and will have no trouble winning this game by at least 6-points. Michigan State pulled off a huge upset win over at Ohio State on Saturday. While it might seem like a letdown spot, I think the Spartans went into that game expecting to win. Michigan State beat Wisconsin by 3-points on the road earlier this season, and I would like to think home-court for the Spartans is more than 2.5!
Michigan State is a perfect 15-0 at home this season. Wisconsin is a respectable 8-2 on the road but they did lose by 18-points at Michigan earlier this season. The Spartans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600. BET MICHIGAN STATE!
