For the first time in years, this inter-state matchup is not looking one-sided on paper. That’s because the Wolverines, led by head coach Jim Harbaugh, have been playing some lights out football as of late and are being taken seriously as a contender in college football circles.
- Michigan State is 7-0 ATS in its last seven vs. Michigan.
- MSU is tied with Baylor for the longest streak in the nation of 24 points or more (21).
- The total has gone UNDER in six of Michigan’s last seven home games.
Fresh off a 38-0 pummeling of Northwestern, Michigan has now shut out opponents in three-straight games while amassing an amazing 97 points during that span. The Wolverines are a very respectable 4-2 ATS on the year as a result.
On the flip side for NCAAF bettors, however, is the Spartans. Michigan State has won six-straight games straight up but have been miserable when it comes to covering the spread, recording an ugly 0-6 ATS record so far.
