Big Ten Gambling Notes: Will Michigan State, Izzo take conference tourney seriously?

Iowa vs. Michigan State -11

Since winning the Big Ten Tournament and National Championship back in 2000, Michigan State has been notorious for not putting much effort in these conference tourneys. Despite being one of, if not the best program in the league over the last decade plus, Tom Izzo's teams are an uninspired 9-11 SU and 8-12 ATS with only one trip to the finals and zero titles. Izzo claims this year is different and that the Spartans do care about the Big Ten Tournament. This coming from a man who routinely says his teams will play up-tempo and then proceeds to go out and play five straight games under the total.

"You gotta be careful what you say around here because people think I think the Big Ten tournament is one-and-done time," he said. But "if there is a silver lining ... (we) get a chance to see our guys."
