Play Michigan St Spartans -3.
Spartans made a deep run into the NCAA Tournament last season making it as far as the Final Four before being ousted by a great defensive team in Texas Tech. Returning this year to the Spartans is their starting back court in senior point guard Cassius Winston and shooting guard Jeremy Langford. Winston has started the point since his sophomore campaign and split time as a freshman. Langford returns from injury and is a good perimeter shooter. The rest of the lineup is filled with talented players who saw significant action last season during their Final Four run. A strong culture of winning with defense has been taught by head coach Tom Izzo. Kentucky returns one starter from a season ago. Only point guard Ashton Hagans returns from a season ago. Hagans remains at Kentucky because he lacked consistency. The rest of the projected starters for Kentucky are not all freshman. Coach Calipari has spread minutes to his players the past few seasons. The top recruits don’t all land in Kentucky anymore as teams like Duke have ventured into the business of one and done recruiting. Prefer the experience of Michigan St in this spot as the Wildcats peak in the later half of the season.
