MSU looking for 10th straight cover
No. 2 Michigan State is looking for its 10th straight cover tonight when it goes on the road to face Rutgers at 7PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Michigan State is an overwhelming road favorite, as the Spartans are getting odds of -23 points against Rutgers. The over/under total for the game has been set at 150.5 points.
Michigan State is 24-5 on the season, 11-5 in the Big Ten, 6-3 on the road and 19-9 against the spread. Rutgers is 6-23 overall, 0-16 in the Big Ten, 6-10 at home and 9-15 against the spread. MSU has won and covered the spread in both Big Ten meetings with Rutgers, including a 96-62 win back on Jan. 31 in East Lansing.
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.
