Ok, let’s get to our Illinois vs Michigan State Prediction.
Illinois came into this season as a Big 10 favorite and one of the main contenders for a National Title, but they haven’t appeared to be one of the top teams in the country over the last week. The Illini have lost two in a row to drop to 13-5 following a gut-wrenching double-overtime loss to Purdue last week that was followed by their worst performance of the season in a 16-point loss to Maryland.
But Illinois has a chance to get back on the winning track tonight against a surging Michigan State team. The Spartans have won 10 of 11 games dating back to December 1st and have surged to Number 10 in the polls and in first place of the Big 10 with a 15-3 record.
This is as big of a game as you will see in Big 10 play in the month of January so we really expect to see both teams come out with their best effort and with these two teams and these two coaches that usually means some spirited play on the defensive end. Both of these teams rank in the top 20 in the country defending the defensive glass so there won’t be many second-chance points. On top of that, these teams tend to play lower scoring games when going up against quality foes. Michigan State has gone under the total in 23 of their last 33 road games against winning teams while Illinois is 17-8 to the under in their last 25 against winning teams.
Put it all together and for our Michigan State vs Illinois basketball best bet tonight we are going to play under the total of 144.5.
