VIP College Basketball's Dirty Dozen | The worst College Basketball teams against the spread coupled with bonehead decisions.
Michigan State is first in offense, first in defense and last No. 1 team to get knocked off.
The dirty deed occurred Sunday, the day of the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. It was a likely setup – a national TV audience, playing a fired-up underdog Ohio State in Columbus getting 6.5 points. Sparty was ripe for the picking and the Buckeyes took no prisoners, 80-64.
So another No. 1 ranked team bites the dust. No big deal. Tom Izzo will have his Spartans good to go for March Madness as a likely No. 1 seed. That’s how non-bettors view this. But us guys who go to the window or bet by app now know Sparty is vulnerable to the L.
The bright side to all this for Izzo Nation is that Rutgers comes to East Lansing tonight. Good luck Scarlet Knights, you’ll need it.
