In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Michigan State at Louisville.
Michigan State opened the season with a loss to the number one ranked Kansas at that time but the team rebounded well with 5 straight wins. The run included wins over highly reputable teams such as UCLA and Texas. The Spartans score in bunches and currently they are averaging 115 points per game. Joshua Langford scored 29 in the last one while Cassius Winston added 20 more and 10 assists. Michigan State is allowing 92 points per game.
Louisville started the season very well with 3 straight wins but then they fell to Tennessee and Marquette. They haven’t shown any consistency on defense and they are allowing nearly 100 points per game. The defense allows the opponents to shoot over 37% from the three. Christen Cunningham and Jordan Nwora are the leading scorers and they will be much needed in this one.
Given the fact that Michigan State is a team that lives and dies by the three while Louisville allows many three pointers to be converted, I think that it is really easy for me to pick the Spartans to win this one. I believe that they will cover the spread and not only that, they can also destroy Louisville if they are hot from three.
