Bet on Michigan (-23.5) Because…

Michigan is looking for payback this Saturday. In last year’s game between these 2, Michigan had the game. On the very last play, while attempting a punt, the Wolverines blew it. The punt ended being blocked. Then, a Michigan State player grabbed the ball and went into the end zone. Michigan State won the game 27 to 23.

Head-Coach Jim Harbaugh isn’t about to view the Spartans as anything but a super dangerous opponent.

“It doesn’t matter what’s happened before this week. For us or for our opponent, it never does,” Harbaugh said at a press conference. “(What matters) is what happens on the game day. We know the task in front of us. We know the challenge.

“It’s up to us to go out there and prepare for that game so we can go out there and be confident, execute and have a chance to be successful.”

Bet on Michigan State (+23.5) Because…

The Spartans own their head to head matchup with Michigan. Michigan State has dominated the Wolverines in this rivalry for quite some time. Although MSU has lost 5 straight games, the trends are so strong in favor of the Spartans, that they’re a tough team to go against. Michigan State is 8-0 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams. Michigan is 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in East Lansing.

“I’ve been watching this game ever since I can remember, obviously been a Spartan fan my entire life, and growing up, it seems like it was Michigan’s game,” senior linebacker Riley Bullough said at a press conference. “They were in control of the series when I was young, but that’s kind of turned in the last few years, so to kind of be a part of that has meant a tremendous amount to me.

“So this game is huge for us this week and our entire season, I think, so we’re going to go out and play hard and do everything we can to get a win.”

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The college football betting trends favoring the Spartans are about as strong as trends can get. But trends are meant to be broken. Michigan State is only 1 and 5 ATS this season. The Spartans’ defense is a mess. The Spartans allow 29.7 points per game.

That wouldn’t be too bad if Michigan State only averaged a bit more than 23 points per game on their end. That’s the biggest issue that I see with Michigan State in this game. Michigan is going to score a lot of points.

Will Michigan State be able to keep up?  I don’t think that they will. This Michigan State team is brand new from the one that made it to the College Football Playoff last season. It’s going to take a while for this Spartans’ team to get back to their winning ways.

Michigan, with revenge on their minds, will absolutely demolish the Spartans in this tilt

My final score prediction is Michigan 49, Michigan State 10.
