When Michigan State is in the NCAA Tournament, you really don’t need to look at its seed. The Spartans, who are a No. 7 by the way, usually take care of business during March Madness.
But what about against the odds? So far in 2015, yes. They’ve covered the point spread both times. Once as a 6-point favorite and once as a 4.5-point underdog when they beat No. 2 Virginia straight up.
Now Michigan State gets No. 3 Oklahoma in an East Region Sweet 16 game and the Spartans are favored again, this time by 2 points.
The Sooners are 1-1 ATS in the Big Dance so far, covering their last game as a 4-point favorite.
