Betting on the Michigan State Spartans (odds)
Record: 3-4 Overall / 1-3 Conference
Michigan State’s defense has been leaky for the most part of the season, but it stepped up big time in the win against the Badgers. The Spartans allowed just a total of 283 total yards to Wisconsin, including just 131 passing yards. Michigan State is a big underdog in this upcoming road game in Ann Arbor, but if it could sustain the form it had in Week 8, covering the spread against Michigan will be much likelier than it was if we talked about it earlier this season. Quarterback Payton Thorne was outstanding in the Wisconsin game, passing for 265 yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 21/28 completions.
Michigan State is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Michigan Wolverines (odds)
Record: 5-0 Overall / 2-0 Conference
Michigan should not be scared of the Spartans. The Wolverines shouldn’t feel that way about anyone in the Big Ten where they are one of the best teams right now. Michigan sent another strong message to support that with a crushing victory over a ranked Penn State win in Week 7. In that game, the Wolverines’ rushing attack was too much for the Nittany lions. Donovan Edwards and Blake Corrum rushed for 173 and 166 yards, respectively, while combining for four rushing touchdowns. The Spartans’ defense showed some life defensively against Wisconsin, but it’s hard to trust them still doing much to slow down Michigan’s ground attack which is seventh nationally with 241.7 rushing yards per game.
Michigan is 6-4 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Michigan wins, 36-17.
