Kansas State vs. Michigan State

Leg 1: Joey Hauser Over 14.5 Points (-120)

The Spartans faced Marquette and USC, two teams with strong backcourts, on their way to the Sweet 16. Tyson Walker led all scorers with 23 points in the team’s recent upset victory over the Golden Eagles as they prevailed 69-60. As the saying goes, always trust Coach Izzo at this point in the calendar. He’s also gotten the best out of Joey Hauser, who performed significantly on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. Expect another one here.

Leg 2: Markquis Nowell: Under 17.5 (-105)

In the opening round, the Wildcats easily defeated 14-seed Montana State. They then faced Kentucky, who had Oscar Tshiebwe, the National Player of the Year from the previous season. The game’s MVP was Markquis Nowell, who contributed 27 points and nine assists to the team’s 75-69 victory. He made several crucial shots in the second half that kept Kansas State in the game.

The Spartans’ defense will need to focus on Nowell, and if they can’t contain him, Kansas State has a solid chance to win this game.  Coach Izzo is one of the greatest to ever do it at taking an opponent’s star player out of the contest through game planning.

Leg 3: Michigan State ML (-125)

The whole Big Ten has had a difficult NCAA Tournament thus far. All but one of their eight teams, including top-seeded Purdue, which fell to 16-seed Fairleigh Dickinson, are gone going into the Sweet 16.  The only remaining team in the conference is Michigan State (21-12), led by Hall of Fame head coach Izzo, who is making a third straight Sweet 16 appearance.

Across the court is Jerome Tang, a former assistant at Baylor who won a National Championship but is new as a head coach. He has been the most outstanding first-year head coach in college basketball this year after guiding Kansas State (25-9) from the bottom of the Big 12 to one of the last 16 teams still in action.

While Coach Tange has a long career ahead of him, I think he is outmatched in this one, and in a round where coaching matters; Sparty pulls it out.
