Typically, I would wait for game 1 to be completed before giving out a second pick but today is different. Everybody knows I’m a totals guy and this total is jumping out at me. I’m talking to you about Rutgers Team Total Over 73.5 versus MSU. Rutgers has gone over 73.5 in 8 of their 9 games this season while Michigan State has allowed their opponents to go over 73.5 in 6 of their last 7 games. Those are trends I’m willing to follow today.
Michigan State has started the Big Ten conference season extremely poorly with a 1-3 record in the conference. It’s not a shock that Izzo is struggling to win in the toughest conference in the nation when he can’t fill his schedule with cupcake teams like Duke. Michigan State has sucked for the past month and I’m willing to bet against them continuing to suck today.
Rutgers is the real deal. It’s crazy to say but it’s true. Steve Pikiell has the boys in Piscataway clicking. Rutgers is shooting 40% from 3 point range while holding opponents under 30%. Rutgers plays elite defense and can fill it up offensively. They’re a fun, complete team to watch and coming off a very tough 2 point loss at home against Iowa, I expect them to make a statement today to avoid dropping 2 games in a row. The trends have spoken.
Rutgers Team Total Over 73.5. I love that this total is at even money. Lock it in baby POP OFF.
