In view of Michigan State’s loss at Wisconsin, gamblers should take heed about Big Ten road games. One week ago, Wisky was written off for dead and given no chance against MSU. But the Badgers circled the wagons and beat the best team in the Big Ten. This leads to MSU’s College Basketball Bets matchup at Michigan Saturday. Specifically, Sparty will face a good team and a hostile environment for the second consecutive Saturday. Following a brief slump, the Maize and Blue are in good form. UM will be in revenge mode for a bad loss at Michigan State last month.
