Chuck is back with two more college basketball best bets as March Madness approaches, make sure you check out his current Top 10 ranking at the end of the article!
@KeepTheJuice21 CBB Best Bets - 3/1
Michigan (15-12) vs. Michigan State (15-12)
Michigan is doing what they can to survive the loss of their head coach for the rest of the season and secure a spot in the tournament. Michigan State was slipping away from a solid season and all of a sudden pulled off a victory over Purdue. Both teams are desperate for a win and this will be a must watch game. But in recent years, Michigan State has owned Michigan.
They’ve won 11 of the last 16 matchups including a dominant game in East Lansing earlier this season. The Spartans will be rolling off the best win of the season, and now that it’s March, it’s officially Izzo season. This game will be heated and I like the Spartans to come out on top, if not losing a very close one so give me the points.
MICHIGAN STATE +5 @ -125
USC (25-4) vs. Arizona (25-3)
It may be obvious if you’ve been reading my picks that I’m not high on the Pac-12 this year. Arizona might be the most overrated team in the country, unbelievably staying at #2 after a loss to Colorado. A loss that wasn’t a fluke, Arizona is so used to bully ball that when Colorado got tough, they had no response. It’s a formula that a team like USC can use and will.
In 5 games as an underdog this season, USC is 4-1 straight up and 5-0 against the spread. They handle the big games well, and with this one coming at home in prime time, Arizona may drop their second in a row.
USC +4.5 @ -110
