Predictions: #SuspectSpreadsSaturday Preview

Take the team of the left

Wisconsin -7.5 vs. Michigan
Caris LeVert is out for the season, Derrick Walton is probable, Jon Hortford is in Gainesville, and Glen Robinson III is in the NBA.
Purdue -1.5 vs. Iowa
Isaac Haas vs. Adam Woodbury.  A Bonanza scene in the Hawkeye State.  Let these cowboys duel down low.
Texas A&M +4 @ Tennessee
These programs meet while each has shifted in opposite directions this season.  Transfers into the A&M program have succeeded while players have transferred out of Tennessee.  Alex Caruso and Danuel House have continued to mature in this backcourt.  Yes, the Volunteers can win, but I don’t see it being by three possessions.
Kansas St. PK vs. Oklahoma State
Kansas State is one of the hottest teams in the country.  Had they beat Iowa State the other night, which they were a possession away from, this would be a no-brainier.
Florida State +18 @ North Carolina
I believe Xavier Rathan-Mayes can cover this spread by himself.  The Seminoles have been hit-and-miss, but have only lost by 18+ twice this season.  One was an embarrassing blow-out loss against Providence (at home)!  UNC has beat four teams by more than 18 points (Dayton by 18).  That list includes Robert Morris, East Carolina, UCLA and Clemson.  I just don’t see this happening with the size and knowledge that Florida State has against North Carolina.
