Penn State vs. Michigan State Free Pick
One week after pulling off a huge upset in Columbus, Michigan State will look to avoid a letdown when it hosts Penn State today at 3:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Spartans are 10.5-point home favorites versus the Nittany Lions while the total currently sits at 44 points.
Penn State enters play with a 7-4 record but is just 4-6 against the spread in its last 10 games and is winless at 0-3 ATS in its three road games this season. On the other side, the Spartans are 10-1 straight up but just 4-7 against the spread, including 2-4 ATS at home.
The under is 5-2 in the Spartans' last seven home games and 6-2 in the Nittany Lions' last eight road games. If Connor Cook sits out because of a bad shoulder, then Michigan State will once again rely on its stingy defense. And with Christian Hackenberg often at the mercy of his own offensive line, Penn State often has to rely on its defense, especially against more talented opponents. This should be a defensive slugfest.
