March Madness, Free Picks, Tournament Picks
No First Four matchup has ever had two teams that are as high profile or of this caliber battling it out against each other. Tom Izzo is hungry to make a statement in the tournament and has dealt with good competition all year while UCLA has had the benefit of playing a very weak Pac-12 schedule. Neither team is great against the spread but certainly bring an interesting component to this game.
If we are looking at the offenses of these teams, I much prefer UCLA to Michigan State but a very complete game is going to have to be played for these teams to win and I think I’d lean on Michigan State in that aspect. Here is the thing that really sets the two apart though and it is consistency which is something I haven’t felt from Michigan State all year long. UCLA shoots well, they grab boards, and they can score. For that reason, I like them and I’ll take the points.
