No. 12 Michigan and No. 7 Michigan State should have a competitive Big Ten matchup on Saturday. Who does the public like in this game?
According to oddsmakers at MyBookie, Michigan is the favorite at home in this game, as the Wolverines are getting odds of -7.5 points against the Spartans. The over/under total for the game has been set at 41.5 points. These two will meet up on Saturday at 3:30PM ET on ESPN.
The public betting for this contest is currently supporting Michigan State. As of Friday, the Spartans were getting 74 percent of the wagers with the odds of +7.5 points against Michigan on Saturday.
Clearly the bettors want Michigan to prove something this week, as the Wolverines are 1-6 straight up against Michigan State in the last seven meetings and the Spartans have covered the spread in 7 straight against the Wolverines. MSU has also covered the spread in 4 of its last 5 trips to Ann Arbor. Michigan State is struggling this season, as it has failed to cover the spread in any of its six games, but that could be influencing the spread for this game. The public doesn’t seem scared of MSU having another sloppy showing.
