2013 NCAA Bracket Picks Update: Spartans’ Final Four Odds Jump
Coach Tom Izzo has led Michigan State to the Final Four in six of the last 14 NCAA tournaments, the most recent coming in 2010. As recently as last week our 2013 NCAA bracket picks gave the Spartans just a 5.7% chance to make the semifinals, though, and another trip looked like a long shot.
Moreover, our bracket predictions saw about 2-to-1 odds that Michigan State would not even land a top 4 seed.
Last night, however, Sparty ran the rival Wolverines out of the gym, leading by as much as 30 on the way to a 23 point win. That impressive showing led to a significant jump in our 2013 NCAA bracket picks. Michigan State, now a projected 3-seed, nearly doubled its odds to make it to Atlanta to over 10%.
Indiana travels to East Lansing next Tuesday, and that matchup could go a long way to deciding the Spartans chances of reaching yet another semifinal in our official NCAA bracket picks.
