I like the Spartans and I do think that they will do some damage in the tournament, but I don’t think that they’re a profitable bet laying points in this range. Michigan State just hasn’t been extending the margin in recent games. Three of their last four victories were by 6 or fewer points and five of their last seven wins were decided by 7 or fewer. Georgia is underrated going an unimpressive 6-4 to close out conference play, but two of their losses were close and they did lose to Kentucky by just 8. They were blown out by Arkansas in the SEC Tournament, but were missing a key player in Guard Kenny Gaines who does return for this game.
