Rutgers is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games on grass. The under is 20-6 in Rutger’s last 26 road games. Michigan State is 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 7-3 in Michigan State’s last 10 games. The road team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Michigan State is coming off of an impressive win against Illinois, but they were severely out gained in the game. Rutgers played Michigan tight in the first half, but got blown out in the second half. I expect this to be a decent game and I like Rutgers with the points.
