Preview

The Michigan St Spartans travel to Iowa City to take on the #25 Iowa Hawkeyes on Tuesday. This is the first time these teams meet this season.

MICHIGAN ST SPARTANS

Michigan St have lost 4 of their last 5 games and they are already out of the top #25. The Spartans are coming from a loss against Illinois where Tyson Walker scored a season-high 26 points and A.J. Hoggard had 15 for the Spartans, who never led and trailed by as many as 16 points in the second half.

The team is scoring an average of 72.8 points, ranking them 139th in the country and are allowing an average of 66 points (105th).

IOWA HAWKEYES

#25 Iowa are 4-1 in their last 5 games and have lost just 3 games in their last 20 at home. They're coming from a win against Ohio St,  Keegan Murray scored 24 points, Kris Murray, Keegan Murray's brother, added 11 points and Jordan Bohannon recorded 10 for Iowa. The Hawkeyes forced 14 turnovers while making just eight. 

As a team, Iowa is averaging 83.5 PPG on 46% shooting from the field, 34.6% from three and 75.2% from the free throw line while allowing 71.5 PPG on 43.7% shooting from the field and 32.8% from three this season.

BETTING TRENDS

Michigan State are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.

Michigan State are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Big Ten conference

Iowa are 15-11 ATS this season.

Iowa are 17-3 SU in their last 20 games at home.

Prediction

Iowa are a very solid team playing at home with a 17-3 record in their last 20 home games. Michigan St started this season so well and was ranked #10 but losing 6 of the last 10 games kicked them out of the top 25. I think Iowa gets here with more confidence and should win this game.

PICK: Iowa -6.5 (-110)
