Which of the two favorites in the Big Ten deserves backing to win the conference tournament?

Michigan and Michigan State have dominated the Big Ten this entire season. The Wolverines were a top 10 ranked team up until their final regular season game. Michigan is 26-5 and has quality victories over North Carolina and Villanova in addition to running over every team in the Big Ten save for the rival Michigan State Spartans.

That’s where the difference between the two teams lie. Michigan State beat the Wolverines in both head-to-head matchups: 77-70 and 75-63. In both games, the Spartans best player, Cassius Winston, dominated.

In the first win, Cassius scored 27, dished 8, and grabbed 2 rebounds. In the second game, Winston was good for 23 points, 4 boards, and 7 assists. Winston is the best point-guard in the nation. He has no fear, can shoot and dish the ball equally well, and his teammates follow his lead no matter what.

Cassius is the reason the Michigan State Spartans are the team to beat in the Big Ten Tournament this week. If you want to back chalk, the Spartans are a much better play than the Michigan Wolverines.

Of the less than +5000 choices, which team has the best shot of upsetting the favorites?

Although it’s called the Big Ten, 14 teams play in the conference. There are plenty of teams to consider backing to win the conference tournament at +5000 odds or less. Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa all have a chance, but the team that bettors should really consider is 22-9 Maryland.

The Maryland Terrapins are young overall, but their best player, guard Anthony Cowans Jr. is in his third season. Cowans Jr. averages 15 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.7 boards. He and Bruno Fernando have developed a nice inside/outside game. Fernando averages 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. He also shoots 62.4% from the field.

If Cowans and Fernando can remind people of Stockton and Malone this week, the Maryland Terrapins cold win the Big Ten Tournament.

Does Nebraska, Northwestern, Rutgers, or Illinois have any chance at winning the Big Ten Tournament?

It’s difficult to trust any 4 of those teams. It’s really difficult to trust any 4 of those teams because the Big Ten is so deep with talented squads. If any team offering massive odds gets past a rival like Indiana, Iowa, or Maryland, they must still deal with one of the two Michigan schools, Wisconsin, or Purdue.

A deep Big Ten Conference means college basketball handicappers are taking a massive shot without any real facts if they back Northwestern, Nebraska, Rutgers, or Illinois to win the conference tournament.
