Spreads released for B1G's four Sunday games
The final day of the B1G regular season is here. On Sunday, the conference will close the book on the 2020-21 season with four games.
Spreads for those final contests have been released, and there are some interesting lines for the last day of the regular season. No. 2 Michigan is a single-digit favorite against Michigan State, despite a blowout win over the Spartans earlier this week. For the first meeting in Ann Arbor, U-M was a 12-point favorite.
Here is a look at the updated spreads for the four B1G games on Sunday:
- No. 5 Iowa (-6.5) vs. No. 25 Wisconsin
- Nebraska vs. Northwestern (-7)
- No. 2 Michigan (-8.5) vs. Michigan State
- Penn State vs. Maryland (-5.5)
What all is at stake during Sunday’s games?
Iowa is looking to lock up the No. 3 seed in the B1G Tournament with a win over rival Wisconsin. With a loss, the Hawkeyes would slip to No. 4 and Purdue would move up to that No. 3 spot.
Michigan has secured its top seed in the conference tourney, but the Wolverines are still battling for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. A win would almost lock up a top spot for Juwan Howard’s team.
Michigan State and Maryland are looking to add wins to their resume to stay off the bubble. Currently, the Spartans are a Last Four In team per Joe Lunardi, while the Terrapins are firmly in the 68-team field. However, a loss for both could put their spots in jeopardy.
It should be a fun way to close out the regular season in the B1G.
