College basketball picks for Michigan State vs. Purdue
Before tuning into the Purdue vs. Michigan State game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. The model enters Week 12 of the season 45-26 on all top-rated college basketball picks, returning more than $1,100 for $100 players. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
For Purdue vs. Michigan State, the model projects that Purdue covers the 8-point spread at home. With Kentucky, Villanova and Oregon all underperforming this season, Michigan State doesn't have a massive win on its resume yet, so this looms as a large opportunity to earn a win that could cement their spot in the NCAA Tournament.
The Spartans played Purdue tough at home on Jan. 16, losing 64-63 and even outrebounding a Purdue squad that averages a +11.2 rebound margin per game. However, Purdue's Zach Edey is arguably the toughest matchup in college basketball at 7-foot-4 and 285 pounds. The junior is averaging 21.4 points, 13.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game and he managed to score 32 of Purdue 64 points in the win two weeks ago.
The model is calling for another big day for the big man, projecting that he scores 22.7 points and grabs 11.9 rebounds. Fletcher Loyer adds 13 points for Purdue. Michigan State is held to just 64 points in the simulations as the Boilermakers pick up the 10-point win and cover in well over 50% of simulations. Stream the game right here.
