#695/696 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Under 139.5 Points – Minnesota vs Michigan State, Wednesday at 7 PM ET - We’re getting some solid value on the Under in this game. Our numbers have this one landing in the mid 130’s. These 2 met in December and the final score was MSU 75, Minnesota 67 so they tallied 142 total points. The set total in that game was 135 so because they went Over in the first game this one is now 5 points higher. The fact is the first game was very fortunate to reach the point total it did. At halftime it was on pace for 122 points. With 1:00 minute remaining these 2 teams had combined for 129 points and scored 13 in the final minute. Michigan State likes to play at a faster pace but Minnesota is one of the slower teams in the Big 10 (13th in the conference in pace) and they know to have a chance here they can’t get in an up & down game with Sparty. Expect Minnesota to control the tempo here. Both teams are very good defensively (20th & 66th in defensive efficiency) and both defend the 3 as well as anyone in the nation (MSU 27th defending the arc & Minnesota 11th). Both teams limit their fouls and are very good at keeping their opponents off the FT line – only 22 FT’s made in the first meeting. Prior to scoring 142 in the first meeting this year these two rivals only topped 137 once in their previous 9 meetings. Under is the play.
