Home-court advantage means so much in college basketball. It’s the reason home wins receive so little attention or respect.
The early Las Vegas line on Michigan State’s rematch with Michigan Sunday is another example of this.
The Spartans won by 23 points in the first meeting, less than three weeks ago. They dominated several critical matchups and led by more than 30 at one point.
But that was at home.
The Spartans opened as five-point underdogs for tomorrow’s game in Ann Arbor. Same players. Same matchups. Both teams coming off losses.
