Will the third time be the charm for Minnesota after losing to Michigan State twice in the regular season? We've got a free college basketball pick for Friday's pivotal 4-5 battle between the Gophers and Spartans.

Michigan State vs. Minnesota

Michigan State (19-13 SU, 17-14 ATS) removed the mystery of their matchup with Penn State on Thursday, using an early 13-1 run to put the Nittany Lions away en route to a 78-51 triumph as 6 point chalk at the closing bell. Defense held PSU to under 30% from the field, and the Spartans dominated the glass with a 44-29 rebound margin.

Minnesota (23-8 SU, 18-11 ATS) overcame that bad stretch in January when the Golden Gophers lost 5-straight, winning eight of their last nine and covering seven of those games down the stretch. The bad news is they were dropped twice during the regular season by Michigan State, falling in overtime at home as 5½ point chalk and getting beat on in a 65-47 loss in East Lansing where the Gophers were getting 3½.

The matchup has been dancing on a pick 'em before settling on MSU -1 this morning at BetOnline where the total is 137. I remain squarely behind Tom Izzo's side continuing its fine conference tournament play for my free college basketball pick.
