The Morning Line: No. 19 Ohio State vs. No. 16 Michigan State, three mid-major title games

Three NCAA Tournament bids will be decided today, as well as the regular season title in the Big Ten

After today we’ll know the regular season champion of every conference, as the Big Ten finishes off their 20-game intra-league schedule. And three more bids to the NCAA Tournament that will be decided as well across the Big South, Missouri Valley, and Atlantic Sun conferences.

The No. 25 Michigan Wolverines and the No. 9 Maryland Terrapins start things off at noon. Maryland can pick up a share of the B1G regular season title with a win today, and are laying 4.5 points at home. The Terps have lost three of their last four to bring this race into contention, as they were the leaders for most of the season.

The No. 16 Michigan State Spartans can also grab a part of the title with a win over the No. 19 Ohio State Buckeyes today as well. After a February swoon, Tom Izzo and Sparty have played their way back into contention by winning four on the trot. They’ll either get half or one-third of the trophy to be shared with Wisconsin, depending on what Maryland does as well.

We’ve also got three bids to be decided, including in the crazy Missouri Valley Conference where the No. 7 seed Valparaiso Crusaders will play for a bid against the No. 4 seed Bradley Bears. Bradley was the only team of the top four seeds to even make the semifinals in a tournament that’s been dramatic and full of great upsets. Right now BU is -3.

Here are all the lines on today’s action from DraftKings Sportsbook.
