Northwestern picked up another solid result in their last outing getting past Penn State on the road by a final of 87-77. Northwestern looks like they have the tools to make a run at the NCAA tournament this season and the Wildcats currently stand 12-2 overall with their only losses coming away from home in competitive matchups against Butler and Notre Dame. Northwestern has been building off of their defensive strengths as the Wildcats rank 44th in the nation in points allowed as well as 107th in scoring average. Northwestern has 3 players averaging at least 12 points per game with Scottie Lindsey leading the way averaging 16.1 points per game.

Michigan State picked up a nice upset win in their conference opener getting past Minnesota on the road in extra time by a final of 75-74. This was an important win for the Spartans who’re trying to get their season back on track after having some poor results during the nonconference. Michigan State has been one of the more disappointing teams in the nation so far this season, but that doesn’t mean the Spartans can’t still make a run at the NCAA tournament. Michigan State remains a work in progress, especially on the offensive end, as MSU ranks 206th in the nation in scoring average and 123rd in total defense. Leading scorer Miles Bridges has been out for an extended period and he’s listed as doubtful for this contest.

Northwestern has been proving themselves both at home and on the road so far this season and this is another great chance for the Wildcats to prove they’re the real deal. Michigan State has had their issues, even at home, where the Spartans have had some head scratching results this season. In what should be a competitive matchup, we’ll side with the Wildcats and the points.

    Spartans at home at 6-1 and 9-5 overall -- Northwestern at 12-2 and 1-1 on the road -- this is a close game but home court for me on a one shot spread

    Yeah u have to take the points inn this one sparty struggling to find its way I'm calling it now Michigan state is gonna miss the NCAA tournament .......weird to say but it's gonna happen I'll take the cats 76 sparty 71 good luck to all

    • I think nw does cover today. But sparty missing the tournament is absurd. If they just get to 17wins the tournament will put them in just for the SOS they played and its sparty. They are very young and Izzo will get them coached up
