Michigan State is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 November games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 6-2 in Michigan State’s last 8 road games. Illinois is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 conference games. The under is 5-1-1 in Illinois’ last 7 games. The road team is 5-2 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
Michigan State comes into this game missing a few players due to suspension and will be facing a very good Illinois defense. Illinois leads the Big Ten West and is looking to add onto their winning streak. Michigan State struggled on offense against Michigan and will have more issues here against a stingy Illinois defense. I like the under in this game.
