According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wolverines are 6.5-point home favorites versus the Spartans while the total for today's game currently sits at 41.5 points. MSU enters play with a 6-0 record but is winless at the betting window at 0-6, while Michigan is 5-1 overall and 4-2 against the spread.

This is a dangerous spot for bettors backing the Wolverines. The public has been burned repeatedly by the Spartans this year as they've failed to cover in all six of their games. Michigan hasn't allowed a point in three straight games and has given up just 14 points combined in their last five games, but 6.5 points? How much value is laying eight points in a rivalry game, especially when that rival underdog is undefeated and ranked in the top 10?

Michigan State is a perfect 7-0 against the spread in its last seven games versus Michigan and 4-1 ATS in its last five games played in Ann Arbor. Connor Cook and Co. haven't been overly impressive but they should figure out a way to keep this game competitive. Even if the Wolverines dominate defensively again, the value is taking the road dog.
