The Kansas vs. Michigan State Sweet 16 NCAA Tournament betting odds featured a line of Michigan State -2  Around 60 percent of the spread action was going Michigan State's way while around 70 percent of the money line action was going towards Kansas at SBG Global, according to Gambling911.com data.

Michigan State just squeaked by USC Sunday. 

The upstart Trojans, who had just 12 NCAA tournament victories in the program's history before Floyd arrived four years ago, gave the tourney-tested Spartans all they could handle.

Even with star forward Taj Gibson rendered ineffective by foul trouble and Goran Suton, there were 16 ties and 14 lead changes in a game that wasn't decided until the final minute.

"I loved the heart and spirit we played with against one of the elite programs in the country," USC coach Tim Floyd said.

 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Travis Walton scored a career-high 18 points, moving Michigan State into the Sweet 16 for the eighth time in 12 years. That's more appearances in the last dozen years of any school besides Duke.

The Spartans outrebounded USC 33 to 23, and the Trojans were just 1-for-10 from 3-point range.

Michigan State improved to 7-0 all-time as a No. 2 seed.

Kansas, meanwhile, pummeled Dayton.  They kept Dayton to 43 points, their lowest of the season.

Cole Aldrich led Kansas with his first career triple-double. It was also the sixth official such feat in NCAA tourney history.

Kansas has now made the Sweet 16 in three straight seasons. They've also won seven straight NCAA tournament second-round games dating back to 2000.
