Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach CBB Game #617 Thursday 8* Michigan State Spartans (-) @ Iowa Hawkeyes @ 7 ET - These teams have nearly equivalent records on the season but the Spartans have played a tougher schedule. The early movement has been toward the Hawkeyes here but I am going contrarian and laying the points with the road favorite. While it is true that this is a revenge game for Iowa and they are at home, it is also true that Michigan State is battle tested and has proven they are one of the top teams in the nation. Look for defense to be a key factor here as the Spartans allow only 36.6% from the field while the Hawkeyes are allowing 43.4% from the field this season. Iowa is 3-6 ATS this season in games with a posted total in the 150s. Also, the Hawkeyes are a long-term 1-7 ATS in home games with a posted total in a range of 155 to 159.5 points. The Spartans are on an 8-0 ATS run and also a perfect 8-0 SU and ATS this season in Big Ten games. Their roll continues on Thursday evening. After a lackluster 2nd half performance at home against Maryland on Monday, the Spartans drew the ire of their head coach and you can bank on them going hard for the full forty minutes in this one and that leads to a solid road rout. 8* MICHIGAN STATE
