No. 16 Michigan State @ Oakland

Current Records: Michigan State 6-3; Oakland 5-5

What to Know

The #16 Michigan State Spartans are 4-0 against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. After a few days' rest for both teams, they will meet up at noon ET at Little Caesars Arena. MSU will be hoping to build upon the 99-69 win they picked up against Oakland the last time they played in last December.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between the Spartans and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Sunday was still a pretty decisive one as the Spartans wrapped it up with a 77-65 victory. MSU got double-digit scores from four players: G Cassius Winston (23), F Xavier Tillman (14), F Gabe Brown (14), and F Aaron Henry (12).

Meanwhile, Oakland was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 68-65 to the Bowling Green Falcons.

MSU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 17-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Michigan State's win lifted them to 6-3 while Oakland's defeat dropped them down to 5-5. We'll see if the Spartans can repeat their recent success or if the Golden Grizzlies bounce back and reverse their fortune.
