The Michigan State Spartans clinched a very nice victory in the last meeting that they had with the Purdue Boilermakers. After they were beaten in two meetings before that one, it can be said that the Spartans had to have a win over the Boilermakers. Now pay per head sportsbooks can see that the Indiana Hoosiers are next for the Spartans, and basketball fans all over the country are looking forward to a very intense clash between both sides.
The Hoosiers are currently sitting on the safe side, but they’re starting to quickly fall, something that is giving their fans plenty of reasons for concern. They ended up losing two consecutive meetings and four games out of six, something that is not very impressive at all.
Both the Spartans and the Boilermakers have plenty talent within their ranks – something that can be expected from two teams in the Big 10 that are almost ready to dance.
Some players to keep an eye on for in this upcoming meeting are the Boilermakers’ James Blackmon Jr. and Yogi Ferrell, and the Spartans’ Denzel Valentine and Branden Dawson. However, these players are by no means the only talented ones. Dawson was listed as questionable for this meeting, and many fans wonder if he’ll be able to make it.
Both of these teams were not very stable in the last few games that they played, which left many fans doubting their form. The Spartans were able to win their first matchup by 20 points. However, this upcoming game is set to take place in Bloomington, and Indiana will seriously struggle to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive.
For this upcoming matchup, many experts believe that Ferrell will be the one to really look out for. The Hoosiers could score quite a few three pointers, and they could very well be the ones to win this meeting at home. In the case of Indiana losing this matchup, they’ll be left outside, which would hit the Hoosiers very hard.
NCAA basketball fans are expecting a very tight contest, and so are pay per head sportsbooks. This meeting will be crucial, and the basketball world expects a very interesting showdown between both sides. Whatever happens on the court on Saturday is yet to be seen, but fans everywhere are certain that they’ll be in for a very interesting showdown.
