1. Michigan State wins by 15-plus
Honestly, I wouldn't want to be Rutgers right now. The Scarlet Knights aren't a bad basketball team, by any means, but they're sitting at 9-6 and 1-3 in the Big Ten and traveling to East Lansing to face a 9-7 team that started the year ranked in the top five fresh off of two grueling road losses. Michigan State will be playing angry on Sunday afternoon.
I haven't checked the spread for this one yet, but I'd assume that it's somewhere around 6-8 points in favor of the Spartans but I think Michigan State doubles that and wins by 15-plus.
Again, this is not a bad basketball team so beating the Scarlet Knights by double figures, let alone 15-plus, would be incredibly impressive. Michigan State needs to come out and make a statement like that on Sunday afternoon after the poor start it has gotten out to this year and the Spartans need to treat this game like the start of a turnaround.
Plus, we haven't forgotten about Rutgers not rescheduling a game last year that would have been a win for Michigan State following the campus shooting. This team will be out for revenge.
