Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Minnesota vs. Michigan State
Thursday, January 18, 2024 6:30 PM
Play: Point Spread: +11/-110 Minnesota
Joe D is running RED HOT, riding an overall run of 13-5-1. Today I have 2 HUGE NCAAB WINNERS for you: BIG TEN BLOCKBUSTER & PAC 12 PAYDAY. I am riding an NFL HOT STREAK of 15-5, which includes a 6-1 mark in the New Year. I am also posting my first NFL BIG GAME release of 2024 in my JANUARY AFC GAME OF THE MONTH. Thursday’s FREE PLAY: Minnesota Golden Gophers. Game 745. 3:30 PM PST/6:30 PM EST. Granted, neither one of these Big Ten representatives possess winning records in conference play thus far this season. But this is still a pretty exciting matchup. The Golden Gophers take it on the road to Jack Breslin Student Events Center to face the Spartans. Yes, I know Minnesota has lost and failed to cover their last two outings on the road in Indiana and at home against Iowa. But this is still a team that overall, owns a very impressive record of 12-5. Furthermore, they have been money against the spread, covering 14 of 17 games this season. They have covered two of the last three meetings against today's opponent. And I really do feel giving them more than double-digits is a mistake. With all respect to Michigan State, I just don't see this team competing in the conference this season. Yes, they did rebound from two consecutive road losses at Northwestern and Illinois, to return home and take down Rutgers four days ago. While both teams have a couple of players listed as questionable or out this evening (check status), trust me when I tell you, the Golden Gophers still have the personnel to make this game a very competitive matchup. Statistically, both teams are almost mirror images of one another, both in scoring and in points allowed. I will admit that from beyond the arc, the Spartans have a slight advantage. But this game will be won in the trenches. And I believe the Golden Gophers have the height and the muscle to dominate at both end of the court on the boards. They will certainly keep this one a lot closer than the point spread. Take Minnesota. Thank you.
