If you haven't heard yet, the No. 4 Michigan men's basketball team is traveling to East Lansing on Tuesday to play No. 8 Michigan State.

You have heard? Good to know you haven't been living under a rock.

Slightly less known is the fact that No. 4 Michigan is actually a slight favorite at the Breslin Center tonight. Las Vegas has the Wolverines as a whopping 1.5 point favorite.

Even though Michigan is the higher ranked of the two teams, that it is favored is a bit of surprise considering there is no advantage quite like home court advantage in college basketball.

So the question is, who ya got?
