Rotation # 608
Indiana -5.5 over Illinois (loss)
Illinois has the best player on the court with Trayce Jackson-Davis. The Illini will have a tough time defending easy buckets, as Indiana should have the advantage in the paint. Illinois is an excellent defensive team, but Jackson-Davis is a future NBA player that can make any team look silly. Today’s game will be about who can get the easy buckets. The Hoosiers did so in the first meeting and should be on their home court again today. Take Indiana.

Mississippi State -3.5 over Ole Miss (win)
Mississippi State has a considerable talent edge over Ole Miss. The Bulldogs are one of the best defensive teams in America and should smother the Rebels. Tolu Smith leads the team in points, rebounds, and blocks. Mississippi State won the first matchup and should cash in against a team that won just two conference games. Take Mississippi State.

Rotation # 777
Michigan State +1.5 over Michigan (loss)
Michigan State played a more challenging schedule and should be able to play tough on the road today against Michigan. Michigan State has the X factor today as they would love to bring their school a win after the deadly shooting that happened there. Michigan will not be playing in the NCAA Tournament this year as we are starting to see them go downhill. Tom Izzo is the better coach and has the better lineup. Look for the physicality of Joey Hauser to be too much for Michigan to handle. Take Michigan State.
