The Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans face off on Saturday in a Big Ten college football showdown at Spartan Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Michigan State won 27-24. 

Michigan has a perfect 7-0 record but this is a big test as they try to be a real playoff contender. Michigan has looked good this season, but they don’t really have that standout victory so far this season. The best win this season was over Wisconsin, and even the Badgers are having a down year. Michigan is averaging 37.7 points while the defense is giving 14.3 points per game. Under center for Michigan is Cade McNamara and he has thrown for 1,115 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins have both been quite impressive this season rushing for over 600 yards. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan State Spartans who sit with a perfect 7-0 record but two of the last three games have been a little too close for comfort. In the last game against Indiana the offense could only manage 20 points, and that led to the only 15 point victory. The Spartans quarterback Payton Thorne had some issues throwing for only 126 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Michigan State is averaging 34.3 points while the defense is giving up 18.7 points per game. Thorne on the season has thrown for 1,701 yards, 15 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Kenneth Walker has rushed for 997 yards and nine touchdowns this season.

Michigan is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games. Michigan State is 5-0-2 against the spread in their last seven games. Michigan is 2-11 against the spread in the last 13 meetings against Michigan State. Michigan is 1-5 against the spread in the last six meetings in Michigan State. 

Michigan State is at home and they are getting points in this game which is a gift. I still don’t trust the Wolverines offense, and Michigan State is going to score enough points to keep this game close. Back Michigan State to cover the spread, and also throw a couple of dollars on the Spartans on the money line.
