Duke favored by 1-1/2 over Michigan State

First off... don't forget to watch the Spartan women at 7:20 tonight on ESPN2 as they try to defeat Maryland to join the men in the Sweet 16.

Looks like the bookies in Vegas are making Duke an early 1-1/2 pt favorite over Michigan State.  Tipoff is 9:45 pm this Friday evening from Indianapolis.  Other lines:

  • Indiana favored by 5-1/2 over Syracuse
  • Miami favored by 6 over Marquette
  • Ohio State favored by 4 over Arizona
  • Wichita State favored by 3-1/2 over LaSalle
  • Louisville favored by 10 over Oregon
  • Kansas favored by 2 over Michigan
  • Florida favored by 12-1/2 over Florida Gulf Coast
Nice to see Charles Barkley swallow his pride and his lunch; Barkley said
  1. the Big Ten was overrated (4 out of 7 teams remain, Big Ten with a '10-3 record so far in the tourney).   
  2. Memphis was more athletic than Michigan State (MSU defeated Memphis by 22 points)
  3. the Pac 12 was underrated (Pac 12 is 5-3 so far, with 2 out of 5 teams still standing).
Methinks Sir Charles was better on the court than in the studio... although he certainly is entertaining.
