Michigan State Spartans Betting – Spartans Are Only Sweet This Year

Posted by Washington Tucker on 3/9/2010 3:13:16 PM

Last year’s runner up, the Michigan State Spartans, finished the regular season in a three way tie at the top of the Big 10 conference standings with Purdue and Ohio State. Coach Tom Izzo looks to have his team poised for another deep run in the tournament.

  • Michigan State Spartans Betting: +1500 to win NCAA Championship
  • It has been ten years since Michigan State won the NCAA championship
  • This Spartans team has the experience and leadership from junior G Kalin Lucas and senior F Raymar Morgan
  • If Morgan plays that well come tournament time, this team is as tough an out as there is.

Michigan State Spartans Betting – They Will Go Far In The NCAA Tournament Because…

The sportsbook is aware that Michigan State has a versatile, athletic power forward that is devastating on the offensive glass in Raymar Morgan, a clutch shoot first point guard in Kalin Lucas, and talented swingmen in junior guards Darrell Summers and Chris Allen. Allen is shooting near 41% from downtown on the season.

With pieces in place for success, expect coach Tom Izzo to mold this bunch, much like he did last year, into a dangerous and tough team for anyone to face come tourney time

Michigan State Spartans Betting – They Exit Out Of The Tournament Early Because…

The Spartans can really only beat themselves in early games of the tournament. With a likely #3 seed coming for them, the Spartans will likely face teams with pesky guard play and slow moving big men. This plays into the athleticism of the Spartans.
The only way they lose in the first round is if they play extremely poorly and Raymar Morgan gets into early foul trouble or a key player gets hurt as the Spartans do not have much of a bench.

Michigan State Spartans Betting Odds – Best Player

Raymar Morgan is the best player on this team despite some midseason struggles. Sports betting fans know that Morgan stands in at 6’8” and 230 pounds. Although he is smaller than most NBA power forwards currently, he can be a good NBA power forward if he can add a little more weight or he can be a long small forward as he has a body type similar to LeBron James.

Morgan is a threat to go 20 and 10 on any given night against any given team. He also vanishes for stretches of games that lead the Spartans to rely too heavily on Kalin Lucas and Darrell Summers. Morgan’s 11.1 points and 6.2 rebounds a game are disappointing and will hurt his draft prospects significantly, but if an NBA coach can get his hands on a talent like Morgan maybe late in the second round or even as an undrafted rookie, expect Morgan to turn some heads.

Michigan State will have to rely upon the enigmatic Morgan to get far in the tourney this season.

Michigan State Spartans Betting– X-Factor

Coach Tom Izzo is the X-Factor. Last season many online betting cappers wrote off Michigan State as they had performed at a mediocre level leading into the tournament. Well Coach Izzo proved that he can take a team on a tournament run regardless of talent or experience already with this bunch and will threaten to do it again.

Some great teams do not play well in tournament settings while some good teams play great. Michigan State is a very good team with perhaps the best tournament coach in NCAA basketball. Do not sleep on Tom Izzo when filling out your bracket (like I did last year and ruined mine).

Michigan State Spartans Betting Odds – March Madness Prediction

College basketball betting fans know that the Spartans have the team and pedigree to make a deep run in the tournament. They are not a championship team however as they lack a true center and have inconsistent long range shooting. If they are hitting their three’s, the Spartans are hard to beat. If not, they are just plain ordinary.
I think the Spartans have a run to the second weekend in them this year as they should not have much trouble in their first round game and should be good enough to knock off a 6 or 7 seed in the second round. Don’t expect them to get past one of the top 15 other teams in the nation however. Michigan State may only be the third best team in their conference and would be fourth if Purdue didn’t lose star player Robbie Hummel for the remainder of the year.

Pick: Lose In Sweet Sixteen
