Wisconsin Babgers vs Michigan State Spartans College Basketball Betting Odds and Free Sports Picks

Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson Jr. have been a lot more assertive in recent games. That's a daunting prospect for Michigan State opponents, since both are projected to be lottery picks in the next NBA draft.

Wisconsin will have to figure out a way to slow down that duo when the Badgers visit East Lansing, Mich., to face the No. 6 Spartans on Friday.

Bridges, a 6-foot-7 sophomore forward, passed on being a likely first-round pick last June to pursue a national championship. In wins over Indiana and Illinois, Bridges averaged 26.5 points while shooting 76.9 percent from the field.

He poured in 31 points in an 87-74 victory at Illinois on Monday.

Jackson, a 6-11 freshman, had a huge all-around game against the Illini, posting a career-high 21 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks. Jackson is averaging 16.5 points over the last four games, in large part because he is attacking the basket more often. He's made 29 free throws during that stretch, compared to five 3-pointers.

The Spartans (18-3, 6-2 Big Ten) were nearly unstoppable offensively in the Illinois game -- when they didn't lose the ball, that is. They committed 25 turnovers, their most since coughing it up 27 times against Arizona in November 2005. Michigan State offset the sloppiness by shooting 68.2 percent from the field.

The Badgers will try to end a long drought at Michigan State's Breslin Center. They have lost 10 straight in that arena, with the last victory coming in 2004.

Wisconsin (10-11, 3-5) is coming off one of its worst outings this season. It never led in an 85-67 road loss to Iowa on Tuesday. The Hawkeyes shot 51.7 percent from the field while holding the Badgers to 40.0 percent.

Wisconsin is finishing a rough stretch of its schedule. The trip to East Lansing will be its fifth road game over a six-game stretch. It hasn't won any of those away games.

Junior forward Ethan Happ leads the Badgers, averaging 16.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists. He is frustrated that the team couldn't build off a 75-50 home win over Illinois prior to the Iowa trip.
