College Basketball Betting Trends

Michigan State

The Spartans are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. Michigan State is 45-20-1 ATS in its last 66 Wednesday games.


The Hoosiers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog. Indiana is 1-4 ATS in its last five Thursday games. 


The Spartans have played six of their last seven games at home and covered all six at the Breslin Center, but the one road game was an embarrassing 71-42 defeat at Purdue. Michigan State has still only played three true road games all season and while it won the other two contests, both of those games were close. Indiana has been pretty solid as of late and I could see an upset in the cards here, but I'll at least take the points with the hosts.
