We’ll start off Friday’s March Madness matchups with a contest between Michigan State and USC.
This noon-ish tipoff features two teams ranked in the top 36 in college basketball — roughly aligned with what a 7-10 matchup should be, but still not an entirely fair draw for those with biases.
Michigan State is ranked as the 31st-best team according to KenPom. Meanwhile, USC is 36th.
So, it stands to reason that Michigan State is a slight 1.5-point favorite for Friday afternoon’s contest.
But is that spread priced correctly?
