(807) Ohio St. vs. Michigan St (808)
PICK: guts @ 10.5 OSU (-111)
DATE: March 15, 2019 - 12:30 PM
STAR RATING: 9.0
EXPERT: Tim Michael
EVALUATION: Win (900) - Final Score OSU 70 at MSU 77
T.M. Selection: Ohio State (9* BANKROLL BUILDER)
I had a play on Ohio State in its 55-52 win over Indiana on Thursday. The Hoosiers entered the Conference tournament as one of the hottest teams in the nation, but the Buckeyes jumped out to an early lead, clamped down defensively and never let up. Ohio State would hold IU to just 39.6 percent shooting and 6 of 20 from range. MSU has dealt with adversity this year (lost Joshua Langford to injury in December), but it closed the regular season winning seven of eight. Note though that MSU is just 2-6 ATS in its last eight neutral site games. I like the desperate Buckeyes to keep this one competitive. Grab the points.
T.M. Prediction: 70-65 MSU.
