Michigan State vs. Wisconsin Predictions: Badgers a Live Dog? 2/25/18

CBS will host the biggest Big Ten game of the day when No. 2 Michigan State travels to Madison to take on a hot Wisconsin team at 1:00 p.m. ET. Here's why the Badgers are a live dog.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Michigan State. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Spartans are 8-point road favorites to beat the Badgers, who also opened as 7.5-point home underdogs. As for the total, the number hit the board at 134.5 but the number has dropped a half-point to 134.

Who We Like: Michigan State can clinch the Big Ten regular-season title outright and also earn the top seed in next week's Big Ten tournament with a victory today in Madison. The Spartans have won 11 straight, which includes a victory over the Badgers in late January, but this is a different Wisconsin team.

The Badgers have rattled off three straight wins thanks in large part to junior Ethan Happ, who leads the team in scoring at 18 points per game, rebounding (8.3), and assists (3.9) per contest. The home team has been a great bet in this series, covering four of the last five meetings and with Wisconsin 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall. Like my collegue Drew Sharper, I also favor the Badgers with the points.
