Who does the public like in this game?

The spread for this game is pretty eye-popping when you see a road team giving up so many points, but the Spartans are on a roll. They have won eight of nine and covered the spread in all nine of those games, which included two games as a favorite of 17.5 points or more. Rutgers is regularly giving up double figures at the betting window and still unable to cover. They are just 4-12 against the spread in the Big Ten while MSU is 11-5 ATS in conference play. It’s a lot of points, but go with the Spartans tonight.
