On Friday night two teams from the Big Ten conference will face off. As the nationally ranked Wisconsin Badgers will host the Michigan State Spartans in this one. Both of these teams will look to pick up a solid win throughout this game on Thursday night as they look to add a résumé building victory to their record heading into the end of January. These two teams are heading in similar paths coming into this game on Thursday night and they will look to keep things going in the right direction with a quality performance here in Madison. This is a game that could have huge implications on the Big Ten conference tournament later on this year.
It has been a bit of a down year for Michigan State, who usually find themselves ranked in the national top 25 polls. They are still putting together a successful season, and they will look to keep the momentum rolling with a huge résumé boosting victory here on Friday night in Madison against the Wisconsin Badgers. Michigan State comes into this game with 12 victories through their first 19 games of the regular season and they will look for their 13th victory of the year here on Friday night on the road in a very hostile environment.
It is not very often that they end up being the underdog this season, but they are the underdog in this game, and when they tend to be the betting underdog, they do not perform well. As they have lost out of their four games where they were the underdogs on the spreadsheet, and that is something they will look to overcome throughout this game on Friday night against Wisconsin. Michigan State has also struggled on the road this season as they have lost three out of their first four road games this year and that is something they will look to change in this game on Friday night against Wisconsin as well.
