Ok, let’s all be honest with ourselves for a quick second.
Middle Tennessee is probably not going to win on Friday afternoon. Michigan State is. Probably by a lot. But how exactly do the odds for this one break down? And what kind of odd-based trends have the Spartans been showing over the last few games?
We’ve got the complete breakdown right here. Convenient, right?
Denzel Valentine is, obviously, going to attract a lot of defensive attention from Middle Tennessee today, but watch out for Bryn Forbes as well. The Michigan State guard is 14.4 points per game and is shooting 48.4 percent from beyond the arc. He’s also drained, at least, one three-pointer in all but four games this season.
