Michigan State 25/1 to win FBS Title

Michigan State Spartans 2014 college football betting odds

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Michigan State is coming off a highly successful 2013 season but can they challenge for a title berth in 2014?

Michigan State has all of its skill position players returning for 2014, including quarterback Connor Cook, running back Jeremy Langford, and receivers Tony Lippett and Keith Mumphery. The problem is that three starters have to be replaced on the offensive line, which has plenty of rebuilding to do after losing Blake Treadwell, Dan France and Fou Fonoti.

The good news for the Spartans is that 1) they don't have to replace anyone in their backfield and 2) 2013 All-Conference center Jack Allen is back. Even though there will be some new faces that surround Allen, at least Cook will have his center to rely on again in 2014.

Defensively, 2013 All-Conference stud safety Kurtis Drummond is back but Darqueze Dennard and Isaiah Lewis will both be playing on Sundays in the NFL. The Spartans also lost Max Bullough, Denicos Allen, Tyler Hoover and Micajah Reynolds off their defense. All told, they'll need to replace six of the 11 starters from a year ago on that side of the ball.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Michigan State is 25/1 to win the 2015 college football FBS championship. After losing so much talent in the trenches, it's going to be difficult for Sparty to win it all in 2015 but they're going to be competitive again in the Big Ten. In fact, it should be MSU and Ohio State battling for one of the four playoff spots by the end of the year. And if the Spartans can at least get into the final four, anything can happen from there.
