    #2 Michigan State / #1 Duke

    In the first game of the Champions Classic in Chicago. #1 v. #2 should be a good one. I was surprised this one wasn't the 2nd game in primetime.

    Duke will cruise in this game, I wouldn't be surprised with a double digit win.

    Michigan State has the best player in the country. The game could go either way as Izzo's teams typically start slow.

    I don't see that at all. I think Duke could absolutely win, but in my opinion, if you told me there would be a double digit winner here, I'd think it was Sparty.

    Just my gut feeling, Duke looked really good Saturday.

    I agree, but I also think Marvin Bagley isn't far behind.

    Sparty is the best team in the country IMO.


    Michigan State wins 74-68.

    I hope Mich St wins and Grayson Allen trips someone and gets ejected.

    Not always, just 97% of the time.

    Agree - always take Duke early in the year. They have a lot of talent and run a very basic offense so they will be more cohesive. Their starters haven’t played 4000 minutes and broken any bones in practice, so they will be fresh and at full strength.

    Later in the season the result will very well be different.
