Cassius Winston struggled to make shots for more than a half and his rivals took advantage, controlling a game with a share of the Big Ten title at stake.

Now, the model has locked in on Michigan vs. Michigan State. His 182 assists during the 2016-17 season tied for the Big Ten lead and placed him second only to Magic Johnson among MSU freshman. Michigan State got the better of the Wolverines on the road by a final score of 77-70.

The Wolverines have rebounded from their loss to Michigan State on February 24 with a dominant 82-53 win over Nebraska and an impressive win on the road over Maryland as an underdog.

The victor will clinch the No. 1 seed in next week's Big Ten tournament and a share of the regular season title.

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, Michigan State is the favorite in this game, as the Spartans are getting odds of -3.5 points against Michigan.

"It's just a different dynamic when he's on the court", MI guard Jordan Poole said.

A week earlier, Izzo granted captaincy to Winston, the Spartans' leader in points, assists, steals, and 3-pointers. The Terrapins shot 68.8 percent from the field in the third quarter. Purdue will be the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament.

With a top-10 preseason ranking, Michigan State went into 2018-19 with high expectations.

Michigan State went on a huge scoring run which was accompanied by yet another long Michigan scoring drought. They'll face MI, now ranked seventh in the country, on Saturday, with the top seed in the conference tournament potentially on the line. The Spartans are favored by four points, with the over-under for total points set at 135.5 in the latest odds. Michigan State SHOULD probably be a bigger favorite here, which makes the line look a bit odd.

Forward Jalen Smith (Mount Saint Joseph), who was named the Big Ten's Rookie of the Week on Monday, was named to the All-Freshmen team for the Terps, who rose to No. 21 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll Monday.

Bruno Fernando has 20 double-doubles this season. Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the Michigan State vs. Michigan spread you should be all over Saturday, all from the model that has returned more than $4,200 to $100 players the last two years. He made other players better.

In the opening half, Ignas Brazdeikis came out firing. Anything less than making the Sweet 16 this year would be a disappointment.
