The Michigan State Spartans and Wisconsin Badgers can both still claim shares of the 2013 Big Ten title, but the way each team has played of late it's not going to be easy.
When the two teams meet tonight in East Lansing, the winner will have an outside shot at a share of the Big Ten title, that is they can win their final game of the season and the Michigan Wolverines can defeat the Indiana Hoosiers Sunday afternoon - which would also give Michigan a cut of the title.
All of that aside, all the Badgers and Spartans are worried about is tonight's big game.
The No. 10 Spartans are playing their worst basketball of the season, but Coach Tom Izzo knows that their is plenty of time to steer the ship right.
The Spartans (22-7, 11-5) have won seven straight at home over Wisconsin and four in a row overall in the series, and they know if they want Sunday's game at home against Northwestern to have some meaning, they need to first get through the Badgers (20-9, 11-5).
The Las Vegas line on tonight's game has Michigan State favored by four points and the over/under number is set at 121.
Izzo will have the Spartans ready. Coming off a tough loss to Michigan, Michigan State should get back on track at home vs. the Badgers.
Pick: Michigan State
