Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Ducks have lost three of their last four games. They struggled offensively in those games, scoring less than 70 points in three of those games. They have struggled with their shot, especially from three-point range and the free-throw line. They’ve also been careless with the ball, which will lead to easy scoring opportunities for the Spartans, who force a lot of turnovers. With the Spartans holding opponents under 70 points per game, the Ducks will struggle offensively in this game. The Spartans won three of their last five games. Even without starting forward Malik Hall and guard Jaden Akins, they continue to play well offensively. They’ve shot the ball well from the free throw line and they’re very aggressive on the offensive glass, which will give them more scoring opportunities. The Ducks played well offensively in their first two games, but they’ve struggled since, giving up 80 or more points in two of their last three games, and will have a hard time slowing down the Spartans, so go with Michigan State to cover the spread.
