Penn State Vs Michigan State Spread & ATS Predictions
Penn State opened as 11-point favorites over Michigan State. With the early money backing the Spartans, the Nittany Lions are now only 7.5 point favorites. The total in the game is 48 after opening at 48.5.
Bet on Penn State -7.5 because…
Penn State remains one of the best teams in the nation. The Nittany Lions were ranked second in the nation until losing 38 to 39 to Ohio State. Because Ohio State was favored by 7 points, Penn State still covered the spread. That’s a sign that the loss was an anomaly.
Bet on Michigan State +7.5 because…
Michigan State is tough to beat ATS at home. The Spartans have gone 7 and 1 against the spread in their last 8 home games. That’s a powerful trend that points to a possible MSU win over Penn State at least against the spread on Saturday.
Penn State Vs Michigan State ATS Prediction
Here’s the thing about Michigan State’s home against the spread record: the one ATS loss was against the best team the Spartans have played all season long. Notre Dame pummeled Michigan State 38 to 18.
Sparty’s other games at home have been versus much worse teams than Penn State. Bowling Green, Western Michigan, Iowa, and Indiana aren’t close to being as talented as the Nittany Lions. The only team that is was Notre Dame.
The trends also point to a Penn State victory against the spread. The Lions are 16-3-2 ATS in their last 21 games overall. They’re 11-1-1 ATS in their last 13 following an ATS win.
I think Penn State wins by at least 14 points on Nov. 4.
