According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the over/under win total odds for Michigan State has been set at 9.5 this season. The over has odds of +110, while the under has a money line of -140.

Michigan State is in its seventh season under Mark Dantonio. The Spartans are coming off a 13-1 season in 2013, going 8-0 in the Big Ten. MSU went to the Rose Bowl for the first time in over 20 years last season, beating Stanford in bowl game.

This season, Michigan State will look to get more out of its offense, which averaged 29.4 points and 385.5 yards per game last season. However, the Spartans got better as the season went on, thanks to the development of quarterback Connor Cook and the progression of running back Jeremy Langford. Both are back this year to lead the offense. Cook threw for 2,755 yards and 22 touchdowns last season while Langford rushed for 1,422 yards and 18 scores.

Defensively, MSU was one of the best in the country in 2013, holding opponents to 13.2 points and 252.2 yards per game. MSU took some big hits with graduation and will need to replace some key starters. One area the Spartans should be strong is on the line. Shilique Calhoun and Marcus Rush return on the ends with Calhoun having 7.5 sacks last season. In the secondary Kurtis Drummond has emerged as an NFL prospect at safety for MSU. He had four interceptions in 2013 on a passing unit that ranked third in the country for fewest yards allowed.

Michigan State should have another strong season, but the Spartans will have a really difficult early game, traveling to Oregon on Sept. 6. Aside from that meeting with the Ducks, the non-conference schedule is a breeze. In Big Ten play, Michigan State is at home for the big games. The Spartans will host Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio State. The toughest road game will be at Penn State, but the Nittany Lions are still dealing with NCAA sanctions. If the MSU offense can step up as the defense develops new stars, the Spartans should be right in the mix in the Big Ten. Even with a loss to Oregon expected, MSU should still get to 10 wins this year.
