Michigan (6) @ Michigan State (8) +4.0

Offshore sportsbooks love games like this with two undefeated Big Ten teams facing off in East Lansing on Saturday in one of the most anticipated games from Week 9. The Wolverines make the trek across the state to take on the Spartans, with identical 7-0 records on the line. Michigan is out to its best start under head coach Jim Harbaugh, and have also won its last two visits to Michigan State. It’s incredible how similar these two teams are: both love to run the ball on offense and both teams have strong run defenses as well. Michigan State can turn to the air when it needs to though, especially with Jayden Reed and Jalen Nailor as threats down field. The Wolverines play things a little more conservatively, but if the Spartans open the game up, quarterback Cade McNamara will need to throw more than he’s used to. McNamara averages only 17 throws per game, although he does have the worst pass defense in the Big Ten conference to throw against. I am expecting a rock fight in East Lansing, with both teams playing it conservatively. Last season Michigan State won by a field goal 27-24, but I don’t expect as many points this year. In fact, my best bet in this game is to take the under 50.5 points.
