Michigan State vs. Duke and Odds for Round 2 of the NCAA Tournament (Back to Coach K vs Izzo)

Second-seeded Duke Blue Devils will continue their season under Coach K for another round when they take on seventh-seeded Michigan State Spartans at 5:15 p.m. ET Sunday.

Duke appeared in the opening game against Cal State Fullerton, while Michigan State outplayed the Davidson Wildcats in a 74-73 thriller as Sparta finished 16-3 to close the game.

Can Tom Izzo bring his Spartans back to Sweet 16 for the first time since 2019? Or will Duke’s potential storybook continue to end for their longtime head coach?

The following is Latest odds for Sunday’s West Zone second round at WynnBET Sportsbook.


Cash flow:


Considering the Spartans barely survived Davidson, needing a strong run late in the game just to win one, I was a bit surprised by the lineup that came out, and with both teams often showing the most lack. clear throughout the match. season, I would probably stay away from trying to pick a winner.

Instead, I will focus on the total, which may come as a surprise to many casual bettors to find this number too high for a Michigan State game.

The Spartans were a good defensive team, but it wasn’t a typical Izzo-style defensive team in March. Michigan State actually ranks higher for adjusted offensive effectiveness (35) than defensive effectiveness (59).

As for Duke, the Blue Devils have the 5th most effective strike rate in the country, while also in the top 10 for effective goalscoring rate and the top 11 for a two point rate. The Spartans, meanwhile, were an excellent three-point shooter; ranked 22nd nationally.

With Michigan State having Tyson Walker back, with Joey Hauser helping to get the key crates inside, I don’t think Michigan State will struggle to keep up with Duke. Both teams focused on their strengths on that surface, leading to what I would expect is a game that could reach the mid 70’s to 80’s.

BASED ON: MORE THAN 144.5 (-110)
