College basketball fans are used to Madness. Just not in November.
Opening night of the college basketball season saw shocking upsets all over, most notably at the Breslin Center in East Lansing where the No. 4 ranked Michigan State Spartans were stunned by Sun Belt power James Madison in overtime.
Although picked to win the Sun Belt title, James Madison was double-digit underdogs to the Spartans, but the Spartans shot just 1-20 from three and couldn’t ever recover from a slow start.
It promises to be another wild college basketball season in Michigan and the best Michigan online sportsbooks will have markets open on every game. And even though this loss hurts Spartan fans, Michigan State still ranks as one of the favorites at BetRivers and BetMGM Sportsbook to reach the Final Four in Phoenix this season.
