Michigan State is coming off an 80-63 loss at Purdue to fall to 16-11 on the season and 8-6 in the Big Ten. Along with the loss, the Spartans suffered a big injury as senior Eron Harris blew out his knee and will be lost for the season. He was averaging 10.7 points and 3 rebounds per game this season. MSU is 13-13 against the spread on the season and 8-5 ATS at home. The Spartans average 71.4 points per game on offense while allowing 68.9 on defense.

Michigan State is pretty much a team we have figured out. The Spartans beat the average and poor teams, especially at home, but can’t quite crack the elite of the Big Ten. Nebraska is certainly not amongst the elite and this trip to East Lansing should be a problem for it. MSU is a tough team to beat in East Lansing, and even with the loss of Harris, I expect Bridges and Ward to step up and lead MSU to a cover.
