College Basketball Predictions: Michigan State vs. Connecticut 11/24/17

Which storied program has the edge tonight when No. 4 Michigan State takes on Connecticut at Midnight in the PK80-Victory Tournament?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Michigan State is favored to win this game, as the Spartans are getting odds of -7 points against Connecticut. The over/under total for this contest has been set at 143 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon and will air live on ESPN.

Connecticut is coming off a 71-63 win over Oregon last night to improve to 4-0 on the season. The game was the first lined contest for the Huskies, who easily covered as an 8-point underdog. Connecticut is averaging 74.5 points per game while allowing 62.8 per contest. Terry Larrier is leading the team with 17 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while Jalen Adams is adding 15.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.

Michigan State is coming off a 73-51 win over DePaul last night with a big second half. The Spartans are now 3-1 on the season with a loss to Duke. MSU is 2-2 against the spread. The Spartans are putting up 86.2 points per game this season while allowing 69 points per game. Miles Bridges sat out last night’s game due to a sprained ankle, but Tom Izzo was hopeful to have him available tonight. He averages 19.7 points, 7 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game. Nick Ward is adding 16.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Connecticut vs. Michigan State

Connecticut has won three straight meetings with Michigan State, covering the spread in all three. However, I think Michigan State is due and I think the way the Spartans won on Thursday is going to help. After a poor first half, MSU rallied in the second half for a big win, doing so without Bridges. That should build some confidence in the role players and make the Spartans even stronger with Bridges back. The public betting is going with Michigan State tonight and I am with them.
