Michigan State’s Edge Over Ohio State
It’s hard to find an edge over a team that’s listed as the dog by almost three touchdowns, but the spread is precisely what the Spartans have in their favor.
This is a Big Ten rivalry matchup, and the Spartans are usually well-prepared for these types of games. If there is something accurate about Mark Dantonio is that his teams are always ready for the big matchups. The games they usually cough are against smaller programs.
Spartans Offense Is Stronger Than Ever
The Spartans whiffed against Arizona State three weeks ago. The team only scored seven points and lost by three. Since then, the offense has come together averaging 35.5 points per game during the wins against Northwestern and Indiana.
Senior QB Brian Lewerke is not putting the best numbers in the nation throwing the football, but he’s not a scrub. Lewerke has thrown 1325 yards, 10 TDs & 1 INT this season.
He recorded six touchdown passes in his last two outings without making a mistake. Playing mistake-free football is a must for Michigan State this weekend.
Ohio State’s Edge Over Michigan State
Last week we cashed with Ohio State at Nebraska. It was a solid bet, even though the Buckeyes were on the road.
The Buckeyes have this desire to destroy everything in front of them. It feels like they are tired of hearing how Clemson and Alabama will meet in the National Championship. Their win over Nebraska was a clear message that they have something to say about it.
Ohio State is +575 to win the National Championship, and that bet looks sweet right now. It’s the same number next as Georgia and just slightly below Bama and Clemson at +215.
Justin Fields Key For Buckeyes Victory
The Buckeyes have a great recruiting class on both sides of the ball, like most years. What makes this season different is their sophomore QB Justin Fields. He looks poised to be in the Heisman conversation at the end of the year.
Fields has thrown 16 touchdowns this season without an interception.
The Buckeyes love to run the football and will enter this weekend as the 7th best rushing attack in the nation. When they reach the red zone, it becomes the Justin Fields’ show, and no one seems to have an answer for it.
Michigan State At Ohio State College Football Week 6 Pick
This is Ryan Day’s first year as the head coach of Ohio State. He has done wonderful things with the team, and he will stay on that lane. However, this is not Mark Dantonio’s first rodeo, and coaching experience should be the difference here.
Don’t get me wrong, Ohio State will win this game and will stay unbeaten as one of the best teams in the nation, but Michigan State will give them all they can handle.
Dantonio is a specialist in ugly games, and that’s what Michigan State will be looking for on Saturday. Long drives, slow pace, and excellent defense to keep the game close while having a punchers chance in the end.
Ohio State is the better team, but there is a lot of value in taking the points. Bet Michigan State +20.5.
