The Michigan State Spartans are a nearly 100% Bracketology-rated team for the NCAA Tournament. To illuminate, the Spartans have done just enough to keep in good standing with the committee criteria. But March Madness betting gamblers have another story to tell. When the betting public believes in the Spartans, they flop. And then, when gamblers give up on Michigan State, they prevail. Hence, a lot of confusion at the betting window. Still, Sparty has quality wins over the Kentucky Wildcats, Michigan Wolverines, Wisconsin Badgers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Iowa Hawkeyes, and Maryland Terrapins.
