Shane’s Free Pick

Michigan State is averaging 16.7 points per game and it’s not going to get a whole lot better here. Indiana’s offense sure was impressive in the last game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Indiana will score at least 28 points here and that is going to be enough for them to find success. Michigan State just doesn’t have enough talent at wide receiver to keep the game close. Back Indiana against the spread.
