Michigan State vs. Ohio State – 2/23/16 College Basketball Picks & Predictions

No. 6 Michigan State looks to pick up a win on the road tonight when it faces Ohio State. Can the Buckeyes upset the Spartans at home?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Michigan State is favored on the road tonight, as the Spartans are getting odds of -6.5 points against Ohio State. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 139 points.

Michigan State is 22-5 on the season, 9-5 in the Big Ten, 5-3 on the road and 17-9 against the spread. Ohio State is 18-10 overall, 10-5 in the Big Ten, 13-4 at home and 15-11-1 against the spread. The home team has won eight straight in this series, but Michigan State has covered the spread in the last three meetings with the Buckeyes. The public is strongly behind MSU, as the Spartans are getting 65 percent of the wagers.

Michigan State continues to be one of the top teams in the nation. Following a three-game losing streak in January, the Spartans have turned it on, winning six of their last seven while covering in seven straight. Ohio State is on a nice four-game win streak itself, but the wins have come against some shaky teams in the Big Ten. Against high-level programs, the Buckeyes have struggled and the Spartans should have too much for them tonight. As is, MSU has the best record against the spread (17-9) in the Big Ten and that should continue against Ohio State.
