Georgia vs Michigan State Round of 64

The No. 7 Michigan State Spartans are 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight Round of 64 games in the NCAA Tournament but they face a team that has packed a mean bite as an underdog lately.

The Spartans will try to keep that winning trend alive when they play against the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs - 10-2-1 ATS past 13 games as underdog - on Friday.

Michigan State, favored by 5.5 points earlier in the week at Bovada, had a down year by the program's standards at 23-11 SU and 18-16 ATS. But Tom Izzo's squad heated up in February and finished the season on an 8-3 SU and 7-4 ATS run. The Spartans aren't as loaded as usual, but don't figure to be an easy out for anyone this postseason.

No. 10 Georgia put together a respectable 21-11 SU and 19-12-1 ATS campaign in the shadow of Kentucky in the SEC. The Bulldogs went 5-2 SU and ATS over their last seven games including a 72-64 loss against Kentucky; the only time Kentucky won by less than 15 over its last 10 games.
