The second game in the 2019 Final Four round will certainly be more exciting with Texas Tech facing off Michigan State. The Red Raiders had a very good start in the tourney this year and pulled a couple of good feats, destroying Michigan and securing the Final Four spot by beating Gonzaga. But they will face a tough opponent this weekend when they meet Sparty on Saturday. Michigan State certainly deserves to be a part of the final four college hoops teams in the tournament, comfortably beating LSU and edging the favorite Duke by a point to reach the Final Four once again. And the sportsbooks agree, making the Spartans -155 odds favorite to be one of the teams in the final game on Monday. Texas Tech meanwhile is underdog with +135 money line and +2.5 on the spread.
