Michigan State Spartans vs. Wisconsin Badgers

Where: Kohl Center, Madison, WI

When: Tuesday, February 12, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Wisconsin Badgers will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Michigan when they take on the Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday night.

Spartans Going For Fourth Win In Seven Games

The Spartans were able to snap their three-game losing streak with a blowout win over  Minnesota in their last game and they will be trying to build on the win with their second consecutive win, which will give them their fourth win in their last seven games.

They will have their hands full with the 20th ranked Badgers, who are playing very well right now and are trying to earn one of the top seeds in the NCAA tournament. The Spartans, who are one game behind Michigan in the Big Ten standings, are currently projected to be a number two seed in the tournament.

Michigan State has played well offensively this season, averaging 81.9 points per game. The team is shooting 49.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from three-point range.

Cassius Winston leads the way for the Spartans with 18.6 points and 7.4 assists per game. Nick Ward is averaging 15.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, while Joshua Langford is averaging 15 points and 3.6 assists per game.

The Spartans have also done a good job on the defensive end and are holding opponents to 67 points per game, which is 69th in the country. They gave up 55 points in their last game and will need a similar effort to get the win on Tuesday.

Badgers Going For Seventh Win In Eight Games

The Badgers have played well over the past few weeks, winning six of their last seven games. They will be trying to bounce back from their loss to the Wolverines with a win over the Spartans, which will give them their seventh win in their last eight games.

Wisconsin is currently in fifth place in the Big Ten standings, two games behind the Wolverines. They are currently projected to be a number five seed in the NCAA tournament and they can improve their seeding with a win over the 11th ranked Spartans.

The Badgers have struggled offensively, averaging 70.6 points per game. The team is shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from three-point range.

Ethan Happ leads the Badgers with 18.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game. D’Mitrik Trice is averaging 13.2 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, while Brad Davison is averaging 11.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.

The Badgers have done a great job defensively, holding opponents to 61 points per game, which is ninth in the country. They haven’t given up more than 69 points in their last eight games and will need to continue playing well defensively to give themselves a chance to win this game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
